It will hit the European markets (including Russia) in a week. In June it will be available in China under the SGH-X828 name.
Samsung also announced the SGH-D900 model, but no pictures are published so far. D900 will be a slim slider (13 mm) with 3 megapixel camera, QVGA display and microSD card slot.
