It was only the end of December when pics of the Samsung S8300 emerged.  Now MobileCityOnline has it for sale via Amazon for $499.95.  That’s a hefty amount of cash for a handset of today, but those looking to get into a premium handset with 3G connectivity and an 8MP camera have come to the right place.  Specs and buy link after the ‘leap’.
