    T-Mobile Makes Samsung Vibrant (a.k.a. Galaxy S) Official - Coming July 21

    For those of you wondering since CES 2010, where has the Samsung Galaxy S been? Why is it taking so long to reach consumers, and which of the Big Four carriers will carry it? Well, the wait is over; it has finally arrived! T-Mobile will be the first carrier to provide Samsung's next latest and greatest handset, the Galaxy S, erm... Vibrant. You will be able to get your Samsung Vibrant on July 21st for $199.99 after signing one of those fancy two-year agreements.



    Check out the World's First Vibrant Ad:




    As a refresher, what is the big deal behind the Samsung Vibrant?

    • 1 GHz Samsung Hummingbird CPU (ARM Cortex-A8 architecture and PowerVR SGX540 GPU)
    • 4.0" Super AMOLED Display
    • 5 MP Camera with 720p Recording
    • benefits from enhanced speeds with T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network, but it’s not an HSPA+ device.
    • one of the slimmest smartphones on the market. The dimensions are 4.82” x 2.54” x 0.39”; weighs 4.16 oz
    • Android 2.1 with custom UI skin (with 2.2 purportedly soon to follow)

    GPU Comparison (thanks to AndroidAndMe):
    • Motorola Droid: TI OMAP3430 with PowerVR SGX530 = 7-14 million(?) triangles/sec
    • Nexus One: Qualcomm QSD850 with Adreno 200 = 22 million triangles/sec
    • iPhone 3G S: 600 MHz Cortex-A8 with PowerVR SGX535 = 28 7 million triangles/sec
    • Samsung Galaxy S: S5PC110 with PowerVR SGX540 = 90 million triangles/sec
    As you can see, the Samsung Hummingbird has arguably the greatest CPU/GPU combo to date on a smartphone. Sporting a Super AMOLED is also intriguing, as it promises a massive glare reduction, compared to its AMOLED counterpart (via Engadget). Also, worth noting that the Vibrant is not a HSPA+ device, but will take advantage of HSPA+ speeds.

    You will be able to pre-order the Samsung Vibrant from Radio Shack stores for $50, starting on July 1st.

    Anyone plan on buying one of these? Let us know what you think.

    Looks like the X has some competition already. Its smaller than the EVO and the X. On paper has a better gpu than both.....

    The smartphone wars are just getting started....

    Oops I forgot....its already is on Quadrant.....lol

    Forget what I just said. Thats wild cuz the "Shadow" and X still came out on top in Quadrant. I guess the OMAP makes up for the lesser gpu than the Galaxy S.

    Too much specs flying around....Im going to bed.....
