Sprint Launches 4G In Rochester, Syracuse, NY; Merced, Visalia, CA; Eugene, OR; Tri-Cities, Yakima, WA

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.

Samsung Galaxy S Series Devices Now Confirmed For Sprint (Epic 4G), Verizon (Fascinate), And US Cellular. T-Mobile’s Version (Vibrant) Details Emerge

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.
