Powered by 4-inch Super AMOLED and the latest version of Android, Galaxy S brings rich technology and enhanced mobile experience
LAS VEGAS, March 23, 2010 – Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., a leading mobile phone provider, today introduced the Galaxy S (Model: GT-I9000), a smart phone that makes users' lives more convenient, more exciting, and more integrated. JK Shin, president and head of Samsung Electronics' Mobile Communications Business announced the global launch of the Galaxy S at his keynote speech at the International CTIA Wireless 2010. The Galaxy S will be available in Europe, North America, Latin America, Australia, and Asia soon.
The Android-powered Galaxy S incorporates a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and a 1 GHz application processor that enables vibrant HD videos, rich augmented reality content through Layar Reality Browser, and advanced LBS (Location Based Services). The 'Social Hub' provides always-on social networks connectivity allowing users to enjoy communications with their friends, colleagues, and families whenever they want and wherever they are.
The Galaxy S is designed to provide immersive, intelligent and integrated experiences, with the power to enrich people's lives through best-in-class services and technologies. The Galaxy S will allow users around the world to experience the "Smart Life," which Samsung anticipates will shift the way that consumers view smart phones and how they interact with them in their daily lives.
The Galaxy S immerses users in a world of rich multimedia. The large 4-inch Super AMOLED display delivers unrivalled screen quality, with less reflection, free viewing angles and super-fast touch-response. The mDNIe (mobile Digital Natural Image engine) – a technology used in Samsung's best-selling LCD and LED TVs – boosts an even sharper and crisper viewing experience for photos, videos, and e-books. It creates a perfect environment to record, edit and play HD video, to browse the Internet, and to read your favorite e-books. A variety of applications from Android Market allows users to even more extend the benefits and excitement of smart phone experience. Plus, users have access to Google mobile services, such as Google Search, Gmail, and Google Maps.
Living a "Smart Life" requires intelligence, and the Galaxy S delivers just that by utilizing personal preferences to gather information online that each user needs and wants. With a user-defined daily briefing, lightning-fast processing speeds and location-based search options like Layar Reality Browser – the Galaxy S gives users the information they need wherever and whenever needed. The Galaxy S represents the next level of intelligence in smart phones.
The Galaxy S integrates every aspect of life in a smart and sophisticated way. In addition to wireless integration with a variety of other devices, such as notebooks, TVs and cameras, the highly advanced Social Hub plugs users quickly and conveniently into their complete world of social networking and email.
"The Android-powered Galaxy S will set a new standard for smart phones," said JK Shin, president and head of Mobile Communications Business. "The Galaxy S is the perfect device for people in all corners of the world who want that extra edge; to be more effective, productive, better connected, and in tune with their smart life – both personal and professional – all in a very easy and simple way."

just for share
Imagine that, if this device was built with symbian OS in it, samsung would have made greatest profit with it!
Overall good design and spec. However, the 4 inch screen is not desirable for everybody as it makes the size too big. You want something you could comfortably carry in your trouser pocket with 3.5 inch they could achieve both.
Looks like a fab screen which is one of my main criteria in a new phone,awful,awful ui.....fail
nice try samsung, but HTC has just released HTC EVO 4G
-HD 720P Video Recording
samsung please add at least a single led flash please.
i want this so bad!!
they only copied iphone, not only the shape but looks like the manus as well. htc and x10 have more character:-)
ok the desire have better UI and design same camera same processor and the multitoch
samsung = the screen and nothing else :S
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2010there is an LED flash, as stated on the specification sheetbut no mention in samsung's site
manu, 24 Mar 2010theres no led flash!! w*f samsung!! no led = no buy. sorry.there is an LED flash, as stated on the specification sheet
Galaxy seems to be packed with lot of features, but why the Radio option is sacrificed?! It will look like a Galaxy without our Solar system !!
cool swype text entry. i think thats a 1st. txtin on this cud be v fast if the swype manages to guess the words correctly. if not, its a useless feature.
also if this can record at 720p at 30fps, its fairly disappointing that se x10 cant.
to one who posted that samsung i7500 doesn't support eclair android (2.1) u don't know anything because u can put eclaire on htc magic without no biggy and samsung i7500 has the same specs. so u can put eclair on it. Try it . Your statment isn't sufficient.
Hi jsut to inform you in the Pic of the H/S the option for FM is available but in the Specifications it says Radio - NO ?
