Samsung Cetus confirms Windows Phone 7 video call support


Usually a device’s Bluetooth SIG entry reveals little more than a code name, but in the case of the Samsung SGH-i917 it seems Samsung’s writers were much more generous with the information, revealing a well specified device and also answering some questions along the way.

The Samsung SGH-i917 is a Windows Phone 7 device with a 4 inch AMOLED WVGA screen, 5 megapixel camera ( we can probably assume 720p video recording) and most interestingly a front-facing VGA camera.  As far as we know Microsoft’s hardware requirements do not include this feature, which suggests a) device makers can deviate by adding features Microsoft did not specify and b) this goes further to include software support for those features, meaning even if Microsoft is not nimble enough to jump on every new technology fashion, OEMs can still make sure their devices are competitive when they hit the market.

With the device set to come to North America, are our American readers ready to order? Let us know below.
