So I copied this from one of the French vendors of the capacitive version of the S7, couple of interesting things to note right off:

- Android 2.1 installed (not 2.2 as previously rumored)
- only one camera identified in the Specs (a 2MP camera, does not say if front-facing)
- no mention of internal memory (does this mean it does not have the internal 8Gb card the US resistive screen version has?)

Price is about $100 more than the BBY version, so to my way of thinking, this just is NOT a better deal. I would rather have the 8Gb internal memory and the two cameras over a capacitive screen, certainly if I can have them for $100 less.

Yeah, gotta agree. If this ends up being the US version then not worth the extra $ just for multi touch. So far my resistive screen does everything i need it to do. Double tap to zoom works just fine. I'm kind of curious about cpu and memory specs though.

Hi all,

but stil android 2.1

thanks Zek! You mean 8Gb internal RAM, right? and is there also a rear facing cam? In other words, are there still TWO cameras?

I'm seeing reports in other forums that the capacitive cost is between 350-400 euros. This translates to at least $470 US Dollars. The resistive screen currently on sale in US runs $299.

This is a HUGE jump in price for the screen, considering all of the remaining specs seem the same to me. At least US $170 more for the screen does not seem worth it, considering the resistive screen is very responsive.

HI,
I think you're wrong. For exemple, the "US version" with resistive touchscreen is sold 305€ here in France. According to this, the capacitiv version should be sold around 350 $US if ever launched on US market. But of course, if you want to import it from France, it's much more expensive for you :(

$50 is better, but still not sure it would be worth it.

More responsive and accurate finger presses. You don't need to physically press the screen (except for poor capacitive screens like the velocity micro cruz tablet).

E.g. on my archos tablet I barely have to press the screen, just rest my finger on it and it registers a finger press.

I get that level of response now from my S7, best resistive screen I have ever used,
