Samsung I5510: Epic 4G lookalike coming to UK

Vodafone inadvertently let slip possibly the UK's first QWERTY Android phone from Samsung at IFA.

The Samsung I5510 was spotted at IFA just yesterday, running Android 2.2 FroYo and featuring a slide-out QWERTY keyboard prompting speculation of a scaled down Epic 4G for the UK market.

Specs were pretty much Galaxy S standards with the exception of a smaller processor and LCD screen instead of Samsung's top end AMOLED screen featuring on its latest high end models. Aside from that it was seen with a 5MP camera and running a up to date version of Android 2.2 on what is believed to be a 600MHz processor.

Considering its slightly dinky size they've still managed to cram in 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth 3 as well, which combined with Android 2.2 would make it serious competition for the mid-range models if its £200 price tag is to be believed.

Considering the LCD screen and only 600MHz processor unfortunately it doesn't look like it'll be the Epic equivalent we were hoping for, however this is definitely a step in the right direction.
