I went to Best Buy tongiht to see if they had the 8920 to play with and they didn't have it, but they said they would have it in 1 week along with the new Samsung MM700/ A700. The rep then showed me the spec sheets on the new Samsung phone.
1.03 megapixel camera, capable of 1024 X 768 It did list a camcorder function. Not sure about the flash, due to the fact the camera lens can be manually positioned.
Hope this helps any and all curious about its release.
I have no idea why, like I said just call telesales. When I called them yesterday, they talked to me about the phone and I asked if I could order it then. He told me the computer had a note saying they wouldn't be able to sell the phone until 8/12 (today). I haven't tried calling so far today, but I noticed they did pull the flash demo off the website. The phone will be $399.99, and it looks sweet!
