All together now: finally! After several broken promises and recalled updates, Samsung's just announced that Android 2.2 FroYo will be available through a "brand new version of Kies" (that's Samsung's software upgrade system) early in November for Galaxy S owners in the UK, while "all operator versions" are "expected" to be available by the end of November (hopefully that includes the "operator versions" of the Galaxy S that Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are currently carrying here in the States).

Samsung just sent out a press release that should help dampen the dullness today: according to Samsung, they've shipped over 1 million Galaxy S devices in the US. Not bad, especially considering they've only launched on 2 of the 6 carriers that will be getting the device. With such a hotly-anticipated and well-received line of devices, it's likely sales are really just getting started - after all, the Vibrant and Captivate only launched just over a month ago.

Samsung Vibrant - the Galaxy S series representative on T-Mobile - is going live today, July 15th, and T-Mo already made it available in their online store for $250-$50 rebate.

A few days ago, we also pointed out that the phone is also available from Wirefly for $50 cheaper than T-Mo - $149.99.

Well, it looks like today Amazon.com followed suit and is now offering the Vibrant at the same cool $149.99 delivered for free in 2 days.

Manufacturers take note: this is how it’s done. A mere two weeks after the Vibrant was announced, this Samsung’s Galaxy S variant for T-Mobile is now up available for order at T-Mobile’s online store.

The Vibrant is currently listed at a $499.99 off-contract price, or $249.99 plus a $50 mail-in rebate with a 2-year contract.

Were you planning on holding off on your purchase of one of the US Samsung Galaxy S variants because you require root? Well, worry no more – the root method used on the international version of the Galaxy S has proven to work on T-Mobile’s Samsung Vibrant and AT&T’s Samsung Captivate.

Two methods are already available, and both are fairly simple. Read the instructions below, or check out the source link for the most up-to-date instructions.

It seems T-Mobile simply can’t wait to get its new high-end Android offering on the market. Citing “multiple sources”, TmoNews is reporting that the Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile’s version of the Samsung Galaxy S) is due to launch July 15, one week earlier than was previously reported. It seems pretty clear that T-Mobile is trying to take away the thunder of another Android superphone launching on July 15 – but T-Mobile will need to build up a lot of hype to take down the newest member of Verizon’s Droid army.

If you’re already planning to pick up T-Mobile’s first high-end Android offering, the Samsung Vibrant, then you’ll probably want to think about getting your pre-order at RadioShack instead of from T-Mobile directly.

RadioShack is offering the phone at the same $199.99 price as T-Mobile (when opening a new account or upgrading your line), but without the pesky mail-in rebate.

That isn’t enough to sway you? Well, then you’ll want to get your pre-order in before July 18 – in addition to free shipping, everyone who does gets a no-strings-attached $50 RadioShack gift card.
