No, I do not find it at all strange that a PHONE does not have a FLASH. Now if I was buying a camera I could see it being a little strange or if I was buying a phone that did not make phone calls I would find that strange as well but a phone without a flash, nope not that strange

I find a phone of in this category/price range with no LED flash is mind boggling. Makes no sense at all. Does this bother anyone else?
Some websites say the Galaxy S has a front facing camera and some just don't say. Does this have the front camera or not. There is a circle at the top of the phone where the camera should be. Why is this so mysterious? Is it there or not!!!
The Captivate has a gyroscope which is awesome: http://briefmobile.com/samsung-att-captivate -- and I like the new Media Hub idea... you'll be able to buy all the movies/tv content you want on all the Galaxy S devices. Overall, the Galaxy S is going to be a great Android addition because: Android 2.2 update guaranteed PLUS a phone for each carrier. Development should be really good on these devices. Lots of custom ROMs.
The T-Mobile Vibrant will only be offered with the 16gb internal memory, according to T-Mobile USA's website.
That is very true, they do rip us off senseless, but one thing is for sure this phone should be well worth it. I already called T-Mobile this morning and created my account and had them send me two sim cards. Should be here on the 2nd or so, then I have 20 days grace period if I need to change something or cancel. That should be enough time to know if I am going to be able to order it as expected on the 21st. If not I will have to cancel and wait for them to get the darn thing in... I cant wait.... lol
Reviewer should have mentioned that T-Mo offers their phones at low prices IF the buyer signs a 2 year contract (T-Mo got rid of the 1 year contract in 2009)!!
Another problem... T-Mo USA has their Own proprietary 3G network that's NOT compatible with the rest of the world 1700/2100 bands while the rest of the world uses other bandwidths!
This explains why the iPhone can NOT use T-Mo's 3G network!
this phone was crippled..ahhh. i wanted the front facing camera. o well.
Jubi, 28 Jun 2010@vikli. I was kidding dude. Waited so many times for this cant wait to touch it.@jubi: all the best for it bro.

Vikki, 28 Jun 2010@jubi: how can you even think such great phone at 200$. Samsung would have opted to give it fr... more@vikli. I was kidding dude. Waited so many times for this cant wait to touch it.
Why do these stories continue to state these arbitrary $200 USD figures, without mentioning it's with a 24 contract??
In the UK, Australia etc, these phones get given for FREE on similar contracts. THe US telcos rip their customers off senseless.
i got this from the t-mobile website

Seriously how stupid can you get, this is like the iPhone 4 tread all over again. A bunch of people were complaining how the in the US you could get it for $200 16gb/$300 32gb and in UK you had to pay £500 16gb/£600 32gb got that was a stupid convo, the amount of time it took them to understand...
