The Instinct line is available on Sprint and has never sailed outside of North America, so a confirmation from Samsung’s PR to Pocket-lint comes as a surprise. The recent leak of InstinctQ led them to ask if InstintQ will see a launch in UK on which the PR replied:
FYI, this was the question.
“Will Samsung’s InstinctQ Android handset be coming to the UK?”
Samsung and O2 are committed to providing customers with the best user-experience, each device therefore goes through a stringent “customer experience” testing prior to launch. Samsung and O2 have been working together to ensure the device meets customer expectations and the device will be available for purchase shortly.
Well, I draw at least three theories to this above statement.
1) This is real. O2 might bring the device with GSM bands.
2) The PR mistook it as Galaxy I7500 since the question asks about Android handset. Also, O2 is the official carrier for Samsung’s Android phone.
3) Looks like a standard answer (which does not even mention the phone’s name).
Though this development looks unlikely, we’ll definitely keep an eye on this one.
