Samsung SGH-i355/i560(?) GPS Symbian smartphone

When Samsung decides that some cool new feature is ready for it’s phones, it doesn’t implement it by half. It actually floods the market with the new models in various form factors, almost at once.

We saw that happen with Samsung camera phones, similar things happened when Samsung got the “thin phone religion”. Now it’s turn for the built-in GPS sensors.

It’s first official GPS phone – Samsung SGH-i550 haven’t started shipping yet and we already know about at least two more GPS equipped phones – Samsung i780 and Vodafone Samsung i560.

Well, there’s one more Samsung GPS phone for you – Samsung SGH-i355:

The price of Samsung SGH-i355 GPS phone should be around 415 EUR, when it is launched in Europe for this years Christmas shopping season.

Update: Oops. Something appears to have been lost in translation. When you check IT168.com translated via Google, it shows you Samsung i355:

But the original Chinese version for the same url shows Samsung i560, except that it’s not Vodafone exclusive:
