    Tele2 has the exclusive release of the samsung i7500 in Croatia.
    Prices from 250 to 400 euros depending on contract.

    They started to appear in the ads (oglasnik) for 300 euros. Just saw one.
    If anyone from Croatia wants it, it's not a bad price.

    I tried to get it from Tele2 Croatia. I was ready to pay 400 euros and get
    a two-year contract, but in the store they refused to turn on the phone for
    me to try out (can you believe the level of customer service we have here?).
    This annoyed me, so I got it from Germany via eBay for 350 euros, ohne simlock ;)

    Here's a couple of questions for Galaxy owners from Croatia or thereabouts.

    1. Which firmware does Tele2 sell the phone with?
    2. Are the menus in Croatian or in English?
    3. Did anyone manage to get the phone to show paid apps in the Android Market?
    4. Which weather widget is accurate? Mine is showing "partially sunny" for Zagreb, and it's raining here!

    TELE2 Samsung Galaxy purchased 23rd of October

    Android 1.5
    Baseband version:I7500XXIG8
    Kernel: 2.6.27 / hudson@andy #1

    Unfortunately it is still impossible to purchase non free apps from Android market.

    TELE 2 is offering Samsung Galaxy for (lowest possible price) 1195 kn which around 160 EUR.

    Croatian localization (keyboard and dictionaries) would be great even for keyboard there is no problem as alternative keyboards offer additional letters, not for Galaxy but for Android in general.

    Layer works surprisingly great (tested in ZG)

    Keep this (CRO) community live please ;)

    BR (pozdrav),

    The point is not to simply get applications, the point is to get Google & network operators to enable paid applications in Croatia without us having to root our phones and whatnot :)

    I see no reason for Italy having this and us not having it.

    OK, this is really becoming annoying. Still no progress whatsoever.

    I want to have a proper PDF reader and the only two I know of aren't free
    (RepliGo and BeamReader).

    But since one can't buy them (without rooting the phone) one can't properly
    use PDF on the Galaxy in Croatia. I'd think that the ability to use common office
    formats is one of the major selling points of smartphones.

    Return your phone, and mention news papers if they start arguing ;)

    Yeah, that is a problem. I was hoping for some office docs myself.
    Well, you can always come to Sovenia, pdf's work here on galaxy :)

    I'm sure I've seen a few free PDF readers on Android Market. Not the ones that upload the file to a server for processing, but the proper ones - at least that's what is says in the description.

    As I recall, Documents To Go also supports basic PDF viewing in free demo version.

    Thanks, I did try those two, but neither can reflow text.

    You can install a modified version of the HTC PDF Reader, you need root access, the instructions are found here: strazzere.com Blog Archive PDFViewer (working) on JF 1.5 and other builds
