Samsung is pulling out all the stops to make sure its Galaxy S line of smartphones gets maximum exposure and, as such, has made versions of the Galaxy S phone available to all four major U.S. carriers, plus U.S. Cellular. Common to each version of the phone is Google Android 2.1 (with 2.2 upgrade expected later this year), a 4-inch AMOLED display, a 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, 2 GB of storage, and enablement for Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi.
So far, only the T-Mobile version -- which will be called Samsung Vibrant -- has a confirmed price and release date, and beyond the core features has a 2-GB microSD card that includes preloaded movies and games. The other versions are called Samsung Captivate (AT&T), Samsung Epic 4G (Sprint, adding a slide-out keyboard and front-facing camera), Samsung Galaxy S (U.S. Cellular) and Samsung Fascinate (Verizon).
