Introducing Samsung Focus S available for pre-order, running Windows 7

We're not really sure what to make of this, could well be simply an e-commerce site being extremely lazy. On Cellhut we can see they have the Samsung Focus S unlocked and available for pre-order. It's at a discounted price of $799.99, reduced from $999.99. It's running "Windows Mobile for Smartphones" according to the specification sheet but in the images it's clearly pictured to be running Windows 7.

According to the specification read out (opens in new tab) on the product page there is no SD card slot available (a sign the Samsung is using their super fast NAND memory instead), but little else is present on the list (FF, processor, screen, etc.) to confirm what we've previously reported (opens in new tab). Take this how you will, what we know at the moment is the Focus S sports an 8MP camera, 4.3" Super AMOLED Plus screen and supports 4G connectivity. More information will surely be made available  at a later date.

  • and a photoshopped Samsung text on the top
  • That's what I absolutely hate about the move to online retail - it is so utterly unprofessional. Not that brick & mortar stores never **** up, but I can imagine some nerd sitting at home, submitting this image because he wants to get back to trolling.
  • To make it worse it is a HTC Titan by the looks of it with a Samsung logo photoshopped onto it. I just can't look at it seriously.
