Samsung Instinct Q Finally Pictured

Android phones are coming out all over the place, ranging from the basic Android device, all the way up to HTC's Sense UI, which made us all take a second look at what Android was capable of. And we're happy to see the open source Operating System (OS) getting some of the lime-light, especially so quickly. And while HTC has beem the main proponent to Android's availability on the market, other manufacturers are quickly clamoring to get their piece of the pie. Motorola has two handsets reportedly coming out, the Verizon-bound Sholes (or Shules, whichever you think doesn't sound ridiculous when you say it aloud), and the T-Mobile Morrison, which is a lower-end device.

A second video demo of the Samsung I7500 Android smartphone has emerged, this time the handiwork of Tech65.  As we saw in the first video, it's the AMOLED touchscreen that really makes the I7500 stand out: at 3.2-inches and 320 x 480 resolution it's the same size and pixel count as on the HTC Magic and T-Mobile G1, but we're hoping for better overall runtime along with the brighter colors.
