Possible T-Mobile Roadmap Leaked, Reveals New Devices From HTC, LG & Motorola

T-Mobile may not have the most impressive Android line-up compared to the other major carriers, but there’s no doubt they’ve invested a lot into the platform – after all, they were the first to bring us Android with the G1. Their investment in Android shows no signs of slowing down, as a leaked T-Mobile roadmap shows us that the carrier is planning on launching a total of seven more Android devices this year.

T-Mobile’s Samsung Vibrant To Launch One Week Early On July 15

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.

Holy Crap: Samsung Has Sold 200,000 Galaxy S In S. Korea

The title says it all: Samsung has sold a whopping 200,000 Galaxy S’ in the first 10 days in South Korea. That may not seem like a lot in comparison to the iPhone 4’s 1.7m in 3 days, but keep in mind that the iPhone 4 launched internationally. South Korea’s population (as of 2009) was just over 50 million people – meaning they’re less than 1/6 the size of the US.

Samsung Galaxy S Is A Beast, Runs Quake 3 Perfectly

So, by now, you’ve probably already heard that the Samsung Galaxy S is a beast at gaming – it can produce a staggering 90 million triangles per second compared to the Nexus One’s 22 million. But that is just one spec, and real world tests are what most people care about. Quake 3 has now been ported to both devices, and it acts as a great test of each device's gaming capabilities.

Radio Shack Sweetens The Deal For T-Mobile's Samsung Vibrant Pre-Orders With A $50 Gift Card

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.

Canadians Get In On The Galaxy S Action With Bell's Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant

Samsung’s plan for world smartphone domination seems to be going smoothly. After the news that their Galaxy S would be launching on all major US carriers (as well as US Cellular), it has just been announced that the phone will also be launching on Bell, Canada’s second-largest cell phone carrier, as the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant (just Samsung Vibrant wasn't enough, eh buddies?).

  • 4.0” Super AMOLED screen
  • 1 GHz Hummingbird processor
  • 5 megapixel camera
  • and Android 2.1 with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.

Our Samsung Galaxy S Launch Event Report, Photos, And Q&A

Last night, Samsung officially announced their Galaxy S smartphone family at a swank New York City party after several weeks of blurrycam shots, spec sheets and rumors. Spanning all four major US carriers - Sprint, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile - the Galaxy S flavors stand to be a surging juggernaut in the HTC dominated Android world.

Incidentally, I was at the event and had the pleasure of doing a live blogging session, followed by some hands-on time with all the phones.

Samsung Moment II To Be Called Intercept – Coming To Sprint July 11

Word over at Boy Genius Report is that the Samsung Moment II will be known as the Samsung Intercept. Technical details are a little scarce right now, but we do know:

  • Android 2.1 (Eclair)
  • 3.2” display (I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s AMOLED, ‘cause Samsung)
  • 4 row, slide-out keyboard
  • Wi-Fi (would guess 802.11n)
  • GPS
  • 2 Color Choices – Pink or Dark Gray

Given that Samsung doesn’t seem to be in much of a hurry to get their phones hotted-up via FroYo, I doubt they’ll update to Android 2.2 before launch.
