1. No forward facing camera. Anyone with eyes can see from the photograph it's not there. It was pretty blatant on the Galaxy S that it was there, it's not present on the Vibrant.

2. No flash of any sort even though it's a given that any self-respecting higher end Android phone has a flash. ( Even the lowly Behold II has a flash. C'mon people. )

3. The keypad is significantly different than the Galaxy S'.

A Galaxy S is a Galaxy S, this is not a Galaxy S. It's a Vibrant. They may have some specs in common, but they are not the same phone. Move along, people.

People are beginning to realize this.I've personally converted a few people over from the I-phone to the G-1. The I-phone will eventually stop selling. Steve jobs is too greedy and doing it all wrong. Tying yourself to one carrier(especially AT&T) is a death wish waiting to happen.

The I-phone is way out of its league and i'd never own one, unless they got some awesome new technology that no one else has. I-phone sucks, even the G-1 by HTC was faster than the I-phone 3GS. How sad is that....That HTC's first Android phone was faster and did more than the I-phone 3GS. It took Apple 4 versions of the I-phone to get it even close to the G-1, which is a 1st generation Android phone.

Actually T-Mobile didn't leave it EXACTLY the same. As you can see the buttons on the bottom are different then the original, other than that its pretty much the same. Although I'm not sure if T-Mobile kept the front facing camera or not... :/

this IS the Galaxy S, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon are all getting a version of the Galaxy S, AT&T removed the front camera, and gave it a fatter build, Sprint added a qwerty keyboard, camera shutter key, and LED flash, and T-Mobile chose to leave it in its original state, no official word from Verizon yet.

It's quite coincidental that the specs are practically the same as the Galaxy. I'll be interested to see what changes as more info becomes available.

> In reply to iphone forever @ 2010-06-22 19:40 from pTB1 - click to readBy your logic, every phone with a screen is a copy of the iphone. Well here's some news for you buddy, no one gives a f*ck about the iphone, look at it's ratings here, it's averaging a 7.5, whilst the Galaxy S is averaging 8.7. Iphone is old and lame, it is the exact opposite of revolutionary, even the new iphone 4 is already outdated, months before its release.. how sad is that?

Almost identical to the I9000 Galaxy S. But lets hope it's a little bit cheaper...
