T-Mobile’s Galaxy S 4G is on its way folks
The Samsung Galaxy S 4G has been rumored to be the next 4G device on T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network. Since the middle of January last year the rumors have been circulating around the 4G Galaxy S (Vibrant). Release dates on this much anticipated device have been circulating the rumor mill in the past few weeks and it seems as of today we have an official announcement from the folks over at T-Mobile. Today via their Facebook page the T-Mobile stated that eh Galaxy S 4G will be made available on February 23rd.
The new Samsung Galaxy S 4G device will be “the fastest smart phone running on America’s Largest 4G Network” according to T-Mobiles announcement. The Galaxy S 4G will be available the 23rd at $149.99. This of course under a new contract and subject to rebates etc…however; one thing to point out in T-Mobile’s announcement is the line toward the end “for a limited time” so the price could very well rise. But let’s take a look at what we know about the new T-Mobile Galaxy S 4G devices shall we.
Firstly is should be known that the Galaxy S 4G is essentially a Vibrant. The Vibrant is from Samsung’s Galaxy S line up and is by all means almost the same phone. The new Galaxy S 4G can run T-Mobiles 21 Mbps HSPA+ network, comes with a front facing camera and instead of a free digital version of Avatar this Galaxy S 4G comes preinstalled with the likes of Leo’s Inception. A few videos of the new Galaxy S 4g have surfaced on line and as far as hardware specs it looks to be an identical device to the Vibrant. Noticeable differences are a different colored door, HSPA+ radios and T-Mobile TV and a front facing camera.

So it looks to be a 4G clone of the Vibrant 4G, which may seem a little disappointing. I for one was expecting at least a led flash for the camera. But when there is milk in a cow it’s not hard to figure out what to do with it. The official spec listing does not seem to have been uncovered yet, so hears to hoping.
