Samsung's Style Phones 2007
The i550 is a bit of a surprise from Samsung. While Samsung has been doing S60 smartphones for a while, they've never really had much traction to date. Samsung insists they've finally gotten good at making S60 phones now, and they're now making a major effort with that platform, rolling out a whole lineup of different S60 phones all at once this season. Unlike past efforts that were all fairly standard designs, their new S60 lineup spans a variety of form factors.
The i550 is essentially a Nokia N95 in a BlackBerry Pearl body. It has the same massive display, high-resolution auto-focus camera, and full GPS as the N95, combined with size and shape of a Pearl, not to mention the nifty four-way trackball for navigation.
