Launch Day – T-Mobile and Verizon

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

Today is the day you’ve been waiting for, if you are a T-Mobile or Verizon customer. The Motorola Droid X and Samsung Vibrant are available on their respective networks. The Vibrant was supposed to launch on the 21st, but as things go, T-Mobile had an opportunity to steal some of Verizon’s thunder and the devices are launching on the same day.

Both phones have a 1GHz processor, substantial on-board and expandable memory, and Android 2.1. The Droid X is a little bigger and has a better camera. It also has had a pretty extensive marketing campaign behind it. I imagine it will do better today than the Vibrant. The Vibrant is nothing to scoff at though. It is a pretty powerful phone in its own right.

Today marks the beginning of the Galaxy S diaspora across the carriers. AT&T will release the Captivate next week, followed sometime this summer by Sprint and Verizon. Hopefully there will be some more phones from AT&T soon, since it is the most tight-lipped about the coming months.

Are you waiting in line overnight like the Apple fanboys? While I am sure someone is doing this, it seems Apple is the only one capable of that kind of ultimate devotion. It will be interesting to see the sales numbers at the end of the day though, especially in light of the iPhone 4’s dominance and high rate of failure.

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.
