Upcoming Samsung Galaxy S Phone Promo Videos

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

Samsung has a number of Galaxy S based phones coming out soon from each of the major US carriers. AT&T will carry the Samsung Captivate on July 18. T-Mobile will carry the Samsung Vibrant on July 15. Verizon will carry the Samsung Fascinate on an as yet undisclosed date. Sprint will carry the Samsung Epic 4G, also on an as yet undisclosed date.

Samsung held an event in New York shortly after announcing the lineup. The official site of the Galaxy S series was announced at that time. On it are the promo videos for each of the phones. The promos are nearly identical from one carrier to the next. As the videos have been popping up as brand new on other blogs, I figured I’d post them all here in one place. You can see the similarities for yourself. Enjoy.

Verizon Announces Samsung Fascinate

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Not to be outdone by the other carriers, Verizon announced its own flavor of the Samsung Galaxy S. Verizon’s version is called the Samsung Fascinate.

Here are the specs:

  • Android 2.1
  • 4″ Super AMOLED touch screen display
  • 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application Processor
  • 5.0MPcamera/camcorder with auto focus and LED flash, HD (720p) video recording
  • 2GB internal memory, 16GB microSD card included (expandable to 32GB)
  • 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities (connect up to 5 devices)
  • DivX support
  • Six-axis sensor and accelerometer
  • Virtual QWERTY Keyboard Featuring Swype Technology
  • corporate and personal e-mail accounts supported (Exchange ActiveSync)
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth with A2DP Stereo
  • 3.5mm headphone jack

There are no pictures of the Fascinate yet, and no information on release date or price. T-Mobile’s Vibrant is $200 though, so it will likely be priced in that ballpark.

In related news, it looks like US Cellular will carry the Galaxy S as well, without a name change, making it a pretty widespread unit.

As more information is released, it will be discussed here. Stay tuned.
