Samsung Cetus i917

We've definitely seen quite a few Android leaks as of late, so it's about time that Windows Phone 7 got its due, too.  Photos of the Samsung Cetus i917 have been posted by Engadget, and the device is definitely different than the other Samsung WP7 handset that we saw a week ago.  Engadget says that the Cetus is headed for AT&T, which is unsurprising considering the carrier has been rumored to have ordered eight million WP7 phones.  There's no release information, but judging by the the look of the device and the fact that we're supposed to see Windows Phone 7 in November, I'm guessing the Cetus will be launched in time for the holidays.

The Cetus looks like a pretty slick little device, almost reminding me of a Palm Pre with its keyboard hacked off.  Its definitely not as chromed out as HTC's Windows Phone 7 device, the Schubert, but I have a feeling that the skinny, glossy black look will suit the Cetus just fine.  So, readers, which leaked WP7 device do you prefer so far?
