Samsung i917 Cetus Bluetooth SIG

Samsung has been all over the smartphone game lately, mostly going hand-in-hand with Android.  Unsurprisingly, the company will also be releasing some Windows Phone 7 handsets.  Thanks to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), we now know details about one of Samsung's WP7 devices, called the i917 Cetus.  The Cetus will have a 4-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 800x480, as well as a 5 megapixel camera and a VGA camera around front for video calls.  Along with those features, the device will also have all of the generic smartphone bells and whistles, like FM radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.

We're inching closer and closer to the release of Windows Phone 7, and as the days go by we'll see more devices like the Cetus revealed.  Considering Samsung has been the one shipping out preview devices to devs recently, I'm sure they'll be launching several of those WP7 phones.  As for the i917 Cetus, it sounds pretty similar to the Galaxy S devices, so while we don't know exactly what the Cetus will look like, you could probably picture WP7 on a Galaxy S and get a pretty good idea of what to expect.
