Samsung announced today the official launch of the Android powered I9000 Galaxy S. It is already shipping to all major operators in stores in Europe, while the rest of the world will get it later this year.
Samsung just came out with an official press statement announcing the launch of their uber-smartphone, the Galaxy S. We guess that's some great news for all you out there that have been contemplating on getting one. Worldwide availability is scheduled for "later this year".
Samsung I9000 Galaxy S is the second Super AMOLED phone after the recently released Bada phone - the S8500 Wave. Other than the 4-inch WVGA impressive display, the Galaxy S packs 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, 512MB RAM, 2GB ROM, 8/16GB internal storage, 5 megapixel camera with 720p video recording, HD DivX/XviD playback, all-round connectivity and Android OS v2.1 skinned with TouchWiz 3.0.
Samsung also recently stated the Galaxy S will be upgraded to the new Android v2.2 soon. If you want to know more about the I9000 Galaxy S you can check our review.
The final good news is Amazon has dropped its pre-order price from 650 euro down to 500 euro for the 8GB version, so we guess the retail price should be closer to that number at launch.
Very good phone with Samsungs butter like smooth screen and Googles OS I will buy it but why the hell do us people in the UK always get ripped off and charged more for everything. Every country should pay the same.
Well, it sure has not been released in Europe yet. But the interesting thing is that some countries may get it cheaper then others (and by nearly 100 EUR cheaper): http://androidcheck.com/news/2010-06-06/Samsung_Galaxy_S_cheaper_in_some_countries/
But I thought Singapore (SEA) was the first country to sell the Galaxy S?? :D
