image_27462_largeimagefile Samsung SGH-i520 smartphone runs on Symbian OS 9.2The battle for mobile operating system supremacy continues. Some enjoy the familiarity Windows Mobile 5, others love the open source-ness of Linux. Symbian fanatics will soon have another option, because Samsung has just introduced the SGH-i520 smartphone, running on Symbian OS 9.2, Series 60 v3.1. This isn’t the first Symbian-powered Samsung for Europe, it’s the fourth.

High-speed data is a cinch with the HSDPA radio, and you’ll surely enjoy the Bluetooth mobile printing feature so that you can show off those 2 megapixel snapshots. You’ll also notice the signature slider form factor, but this phone appears to have touch panel keys on the front much like the LG Chocolate. Borrowing popular elements from your Korean cousins, are you?
