However, unless you're in Germany around June, you won't be able to get your hands on the phone right away. Samsung did not release information about a launch date or pricing for the U.S.

HTC, Samsung's smaller rival, beat out the Korea-based electronics giant last October when it launched a smartphone based on the T-Mobile G1. In February, HTC also said it planned to unveil a new Android product, the HTC Magic, also known as the G2 -- or Google 2 " sometime this spring.
HTC also is reportedly partnering with T-Mobile in creating other Android-based devices, including a home phone and a tablet computer.
