Samsung B7610 Louvre in the wild!!

UPDATE: The link to the leaked pictures seems to have been removed. What is pictured above is the official press release photos from Samsung.

Update 2: Posted a detailed Samsung B7610 Review.

I've previously blogged about how I thought the Samsung Louvre was leaked by Expansys guys, well now, it turns out that the leak could actually be true as there are now pictures to prove it. Some french website has pictures to prove their claim.

I'm so excited, I'm actually jumping up and down my seat. Of course, the the Samsung Omnia2 still has pretty great specs but the Samsung B7610 Louvre has a physical QWERTY keyboard! Something that I've been wanting on my Omnia since like--forever!!

The specifications on the Samsung Louvre isn't bad too. It has a 3.5 inch AMOLED screen, 5 megapixel camera (no flash), 1GB internal memory with expandable MicroSD slot, 3G/HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio, and an acceleromter. The Samsung B7610 runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 only but--this is the part I like best: it's upgradeable to Windows Mobile 6.5 when it comes out!! Oh joy! Oh joy! Oh joy!

The Samsung B7610 Louvre will still sport Samsung's TouchWiz interface and that cool looking CoverFlow like thingy pictured seems really cool. The Louvre will be available in France in July (lucky them) on Orange (Poor them), for around 350 Euros. Hopefully, it would reach our shores somewhere around the same month but if not, we'll have to wait until September.

    I think it's a QWERTY. All other keys are the same except for the A, Q, S, and Z. It sure heck isn't Suretype. I think the photoshop designer of the pic just did something wrong. :)

    It's called AZERTY. They use this lay-ouy in France and Belgium
