Put a little Google in your pocket with Samsung’s long-awaited Android phone, the I7500. It’s the first Android phone from Samsung, one of the world’s top handset manufacturers. Naturally, the I7500 sports a gaggle of Google apps: You can send Gmail, sync your Google Calendar, manage voice mail via Google Talk, and watch YouTube videos. An integrated GPS antenna gives you an all-access ticket to Google Maps and its people-finding app, Google Latitude. Surf at near desktop speeds on a blazingly fast 7.2-megabits-per-second HSDPA network, or connect to the Web via Wi-Fi. With 8GB of internal memory (plus a 32GB card slot), the I7500 has plenty of room to run the hundreds of apps available from the Android Market, play music, and store photos snapped with its 5-megapixel camera. The I7500’s gorgeous active-matrix OLED touchscreen and slick interface could make you forget that other phones even exist.
