The Samsung i917 was outed a while ago by the Bluetooth SIG, and it looks like it’s going to be one of the first, if not the first Samsung smartphone to run Windows Phone 7. This despite some previous rumors that there will be a Cetus device running Android. Or maybe Samsung are prepping a whole Cetus range.
Anyway, what we already know, spec-wise, about the i917 Cetus is that it will have a 4-inch AMOLED or presumably Super AMOLED display with a WVGA (480 x 800) resolution, 5 MP rear camera and VGA front-facing camera, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11n, FM Radio, microUSB port and Bluetooth 2.1.
This device is reportedly headed to AT&T.
There’s still absolutely no mention of a launch date, but it’s obvious that it should be in stores before the holiday shopping season starts. How much earlier than that Samsung are willing to release it probably also depends a bit on Microsoft and when they finalize WP7. Because the hardware looks ready enough even today.
