Samsung Galaxy S Launch Event Recap, Photos, And Q&A
Last Updated: July 23rd, 2010

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.

The app appears as it does in the preview; upon booting it offers up a registration/sign in screen. Upon sign-in, the app pulls your purchased books from Amazon’s Kindle Bookstore servers and transfers them to your device. A link to a mobile-optimized version of the Kindle Bookstore is available by a press of the menu button while in the app.

Samsung Galaxy S
Last Updated: July 1st, 2010

It was reported some time ago that the Samsung Galaxy S would hit every major carrier in the US – and it seems like the prediction was dead on. First announced for AT&T as the Samsung Captivate, the Galaxy S has already been confirmed for T-Mobile as the Samsung Vibrant, and was just announced as the Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint, the Samsung Fascinate for Verizon, and an unnamed version of the device for US Cellular.

Last week, Samsung announced the Galaxy S for AT&T would be named the Captivate. Today, they have announced the same phone for T-Mobile will be called the Vibrant, and boy is it (still) one sexy piece of kit.

In case you need a refresher on the details, based on AT&T’s spec page:

  • Android 2.1 with Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0 user interface overlay
  • 4” AMOLED Screen
  • 1 GHz Hummingbird CPU
  • 16 GB internal storage (and support for a 32 GB microSD card)
  • 802.11n, FM Radio
  • Bluetooth 3.0
  • 5 MP camera (no flash), 720p video recording

Couple this with the fact that T-Mobile doesn’t cripple their phones like AT&T does, and they’ve got a blazing fast 3G network… well, things certainly look good for T-Mo customers at the moment, don’t they?
