Report from Samsung's Consumer Lifestyle Showcase event in New York City, plus additional photo galleries of Samsung phones from other recent events. Hot info on the i645, i730, i550, A760, and more.

Samsung held a product launch event this week in New York City. As usual, Samsung was not officially announcing any phones, leaving that honor instead to its carrier customers (as they prefer). But they were "previewing" several new devices that weren't previously public, including their first EV-DO devices for North America.

Some of the photos and info on the following pages are from a variety of other recent events where Samsung was exhibiting, and also from the permanent Samsung Experience showroom in New York City.

Lack of American GSM support

I'm rather disappointed to see so little in the way of GSM 850 here - especially when it comes to the D710. Too bad Series 60 isn't bigger in the USA, I'd love more choice when it comes time to upgrade my Nokia 3620.

Keyboard photo

Looks like the sneaky folks at Engadget got a photo of the keyboard:

The big, ugly "Samsung" stickers

Just FYI: the big, ugly grey oval "Samsung" stickers on some of these phones are just something Samsung does to cover up the carrier logos before the phone is "officially" announced. The final phones won't have that.
Looks like the giant sticker fell off the i550 before you took the pictures, as if it weren't obviously going to sprint anyways.
