New Samsung TL320 (WB100) has OLED display and analog gauges

The Samsung TL320 (aka ) was leaked last week, and now the leak has become an official lake. This camera's claim to fame is a 3" (AM)OLED display (organic LED) and two analog gauges that keep track of available space on the card and battery life. Also of interest, a 5X lens that starts at 24mm wide, and the possibility of RAW. Update: The camera does not have RAW

As we noted in the leak, the camera is closely related to the SL820/SL620 duo and carries the analog gauges from the NV9 (TL9) model.

To summarize, this is a deluxe P&S with a 5X IS lens that starts at 24mm wide (nice!) and it has two unique features, the analog gauges and the OLED screen. This screams gadgetologist and gearhead favorite!

Big Question: Does it have RAW? NO! (updated)
The specs at dpreview mention that it has RAW, but so far, we haven't found any other place that mentions the availability of RAW. We'll keep looking...

One of our readers notified us that the mention of RAW from the dpreview specs was removed, so no RAW in this camera.
