Samsung Galaxy S event in New York


I know the event was focused to introduce the Galaxy but....Just wondering how much talk there was about the Epic 4G compared to the Galaxy S


The Epic 4G is for all intents and purposes a Galaxy S inside. The only difference is that they changed the looks a bit as well as added a qwerty slider keyboard and a 4G radio.

I'll wait for the holiday season. Something more bad-ass is sure to come out for Christmas. Project Emerald sounds to be a true leap for all current more or less equal spec. phones.

Why dont you keep waiting as there will be something even better past that christmas date?

Hell, why not just wait, period and not get a smartphone?

One thing is for certain, you will not find a better display than what the Samsung Galaxy S line has with its Super AMOLED. This screen technology will be an exclusive for a long time for Samsung and no one else will have it. Its one of their main differentiating factor and they sure as heck wont be licensing it away.

Stroke of Genius?

All these phones, largely identical under the hood but with enough outward differences to allow all the carriers to have their own look, their own shell design, to add keyboards, subtract cameras....


This may well end up being the most profitable smartphones lines ever developed.

Pseudo Fragmentation. Planned differentiation.

This is the perfect phone for a booming market.

I had a Moment. Amazingly good phone, but Sprint really killed it. Smart of them to push it themselves, and get it out on all the big carriers. Sprint almost managed to kill off Palm, also. Well, the commercials sure didn't help.
