O2 customers can now get their hands on an Android handset following the launch of the delayed Samsung Galaxy i7500 to the network in the UK.

The handset has a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 5-megapixel camera, 8GB of internal memory, Bluetooth and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

It's the first Android handset that isn't made by HTC to be available in the UK and means that now the four biggest UK operators all have an Android handset. O2 has the Galaxy i7500, Orange and T-Mobile have the HTC Hero, and Vodafone has the HTC Magic.

Only 3 is lacking a Google-powered mobile phone.

The handset is available from O2 ranging in price from Free to £244.67 depending on the terms of the contract.
