This evening at an event in New York City, we had a chance to handle Samsung's latest smartphone, the i8510 INNOV8, which uses Nokia's S60 user interface (3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2). This sleek slider handset sports a 2.8" QVGA display capable of showing 16 million colors.

The Samsung i8510 INNOV8 is an imaging powerhouse, with its 8 megapixel autofocus camera that offers image stabilization and blink, smile, and face detection, for perfect photos. The camera also features the ability to take panoramic photographs, and uses the handset's built-in GPS receiver to geotag photos with location information. The i8510 INNOV8 is capable of recording QVGA video at up to 120 frames per second and VGA-resolution video at up to 30 frames per second, with a full video editing suite on board.

Music is not forgotten on this workhorse, with a built-in FM radio, 3D surround sound, and a standard 3.5mm audio port. The i8510 INNOV8 offers 16GB of built-in memory in addition to a microSD card slot for even more storage options. Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP support for stereo headsets makes wireless music possible, also.

The Samsung i8510 INNOV8 is the first Samsung S60-powered smartphone to feature quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz), and dual-band UMTS/HSDPA (900/2100MHz) support is also built-in. WiFi provides yet another option for high-speed data. This smartphone also features a built-in accelerometer and a whopping 1200mAh battery for extended use.

The Samsung i8510 INNOV8 is set to go on sale in Europe in August, with other markets seeing it in September. No word yet on pricing.
