samsung is taking too much of time to release this galaxy. it was 1st announced in march and i was really eager to own this phone.
but then, there are no follow ups, no nothing abt the phone from samsung. follow up teasers wud b a good marketing tool.
ive been constantly checkng on galaxy's official website 'http://galaxys.samsungmobile.com/', there were no updates eversince.
boring. blah. sigh
HTC Desire is best Android Phone in Market today by far. We have to wait and see the Samsung Galaxy S I9000 compare with Desire.
It look like the Samsung has few advantages over Desire but problem is Galaxy is made of cheap plastic and no flash.

No offend to iphone fans but if you don't like this phone then don't buy. I am using an iphone 3GS right now but will buy this phone. I like electronic stuff specialy when come to new phone with new technology. :) Iphone is little boring after a while even jailbreak..... but they have lots of good apps.
Honestly! I never believed Samsung will come up with handheld device matching my expectations. I am impressed.
On www.expansys.nl the release date is set on 10 may 2010 for the 8 GB version. The price is set at 599 euro.
The release date and the price for the 16 GB version is not yet announced.

Alu, 05 May 2010Food for thought Samsung. This phone is great. It is way better than iphone, even the upcoming... moremy goodness, it is indeed a good sense you had pulled-up there and hopefully SAMSUNG would listen. I myself am a samsung fan now, and I couldn't help but agree with what you commented over there...the idea is correct but i am not in any way against samsung, but hopefully they would learn about these kind of marketing stuff to really make their mark instead of just making multiple units and making large numbers for profits but never really making their "MARK" on the heads of their consumers!
probably, a few of the good products or marks they had left for the mobile phone world right now are both the SD cards that would have more capacity, and the SUPER AMOLED screens...

with this phone you wont need hdmi out you can get a tv that has wifi and the cool thing is its the first phone to also have 802.11 B,G, and N!!! -- wait for the phone and a really cool TV!!!!!
I will replace my iphone 3GS with either Xperia X10 or samsung I9000. Too many complained about Xperia X10 so I guess I will wait for this one.
Any idea when Samsung will release it?

Food for thought Samsung. This phone is great. It is way better than iphone, even the upcoming iphone 4, I myseld will definitely buy one. But the sad truth, it will still NEVER outsell iphone. Why? Marketing. Sure Samsung can make great ads and posters, but Iím talking about buzz marketing. Getting it into the conscious of the masses. Everybody here is "interested" in mobiles. Most people arenít. So better spec wonít matter that much to them. The most visible talked about brand will win out, itís that simple. This is where Samsung get it wrong: their products never create that ďHousehold nameĒ kind of buzz. One thing I have noticed is that accessories go a long way to creating that familiarity. Samsung donít have any, and they donít seem to encourage people to make any for them. You walk in a cell phone shop, what do you see? Walls full of iphone covers, blackberry faces, iphone pouches, Nokia housings. Thats how you make a popular products. Get it in peoples minds. Thatís what Nokia did when they first started the express on cover thing. It work beautifully for them. Iíve noticed for example that Samsung put their charge/sync port on the top always. So itís not docking station friendly. Small issues, yes, but it just shows where their mind is at with regards to their product. Itís not enough to just make the best fone. Iphone is far form the best, most droids are better phones than iphone, but just look where it isÖÖ
