CoolSmartphone is reporting that it should be available in the UK starting next month for the feel-good price of £79.99 (about $145). No lame 100 song cap like with the ROKR, either."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/i300.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/><br /><br />This looks like a nice price for this phone. The question is when and where this model will hit the states. I particularly like the little dig at the ROKR. :)

I've been wanting this phone ever since the pictures started appearing last Fall.

However, now that Apple has the 4GB Nano with ALL FLASH memory - I really don't want a HDD based anything.

If Apple can make an iPod with 4GB of Flash memory, then Samsung - one of the largest memory manufactures on the planet should be able to come out with one too.

I want the smaller size of a memory player; I want the better power efficency; and above all I want the reliability of solid state memory over a mechanical drive.

I think Samsung is making the memory for the iPod line - including the Nano. I think that's the case.

I like the phone and it's concept. However, I would prefer a large flash based system like you mentioned, or something that's supports easily removable flash memory so that I can expand it as need be. Either one of those would be ideal in my books. Of course, it would need WiFi too, but that's for another post. ;)

I like this device but the screen is so ridiculously small! Its smaller than the MPx 220 screen and thats barly tollerable for me lol. I think the HTC Tornado class devices are much better but the 4GB hardrive is nice, to bad it isn't flash memory.
