Offers some of the best optics we've ever found crammed in a cell phone

from Wired

Comedian Louis C.K. was spot on when he mused how everything is so amazing and nobody is happy. Take a moment to consider the i8510, one of Samsung's latest 8-megapixel smartphones.

In some respects, this studly slider really does live up to its license plate ready moniker: INNOV8. Weighing just 140-grams, the handset offers some of the best optics we've ever found crammed in a cell phone: sharp, noiseless pics (3264 x 2448 pixels) and decent image stabilizer punctuate video capture that puts full-figured handicams from circa 2008 shame. You can even shoot VGA at 30fps or QVGA at a whopping 120fps (yes, 120!), including slow motion footage in 1/4th and 1/8th speeds, then use the onboard video editing suite to cut to together a quick flick faster than you can say "convergence is awesome."

Solidly built, feature rich, and darn fun to use smartphone

from MobileBurn

While we are just now receiving our N96 review units, at this moment it is hard to imagine how the Nokia N96 is going to top what Samsung has done with the i8510 INNOV8. Samsung has put together a very solidly built, feature rich, and darn fun to use smartphone. The i8510 is the best performing and most feature rich camera phone we have ever used, there is enough internal storage on hand for thousands and thousands of music tracks, and Samsung's optical mouse adds a lot of wow factor to the already fantastic S60 web browser.

What's missing? U.S. 3G support would have been nice, for starters. But apart from that, the only thing we felt to be a real issue for most people is the optical joystick, but that could easily be addressed with a firmware tweak or two. Voice dialing should probably be there, as well.

But other than that, we really don't have anything even remotely negative to say about the i8510 INNOV8. "Highly Recommended", plain and simple. If you are considering an N95 or N96, you would be doing yourself a disservice if you didn't check out this gem first....
