S8300 UltraTOUCH a sign of things to come next week

Samsung’s “big” announcement today was the S8300.  Sure, it’s no i8910, but it’s still a pretty remarkable device.

Despite being primarily designed as a fashion phone and not a power device, it still packs the most up-to-date specifications around including an 8MP autofocus camera with dual-LED flash, D1 video recording, GPS, and a 2.8-inch WQVGA AMOLED capacitive screen.  Pretty impressive for such a slim phone.  What it lacks is WiFi, but for a feature phone this is partly excusable.  Still, some companies these days are sticking WiFi in their feature handsets and Samsung so far hasn’t gotten on board with that trend.

All this makes me more excited for the Feb. 16 announcement of the i8910, which has gotten confirmed by two independent sources as also using an AMOLED capacitive glass display.  It would certainly make sense, as all current Samsung touch devices feature such screens.
