Despite rumors that Samsung’s Android device production would be delayed until late 2009, the South Korean company yesterday introduced its first Android powered device, the I7500, which according to JK Shin, Executive Vice President and Head of Mobile Communication Division in Samsung Electronics,” is “most innovative Android mobile phone.” It will be the third Android powered device on the market, after the HTC Magic and the T-Mobile G1.

The I7500 is a candy bar style phone with a 3.2 inch HVGA (320 X 480) AMOLED touch screen. It measures about 4.5″ X 2.2″ X .4″ and does not have a physical keyboard. It has 8 GB internal memory plus a microSD expansion slot that supporrts up to 32 GB. The I7500 features a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus. It operates on HSDPA 7.2Mbps / HSUPA 5.76Mbps (900 / 1700/ 2100MHz), EDGE / GPRS (850/ 900/1800/1900) networks and also features Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi and MicroUSB connectivity. With the Android OS and an integrated GPS receiver it obviously supports the various Google services including Gmail, Maps, Latitude, StreetView, Calendar and of course the Android Market. It has a 1500mAh battery and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a release date for the U.S. market just yet (although new information on that should be available soon). It will be available in European markets beginning in June. Its support of the 900/1700/2100MHz bands makes it compatible with T-Mobile’s 3G network, so perhaps that’s where we will see its U.S. debut. There is no word yet on the price in either market.
