Samsung Galaxy S

Samsung should be launching its premier handset soon, in a huge way.  According to the Korean industry blog Korea IT Times the Galaxy S will be released in 100 countries, all within the same month.  Confirmed by IT Times are Vodafone (UK), Orange (FR), SingTel (SG), Deutsche Telecom (Germany) and "many others."  We're already pretty sure it's coming to AT&T, T-Mobile, and very possibly Sprint and Verizon in the United States.

Ever since we had some hands on time with the Galaxy S and even more time with it at Google I/O we've been itching to call it our own for a week or so and put it through the paces.  Specs look great (1GHz cortex A8 processor, 4-inch SuperAmoled screen, 5 MPx camera, 8/16 GB internal memory, Android 2.1 Eclair), multimedia support looks even better (MP3, WAV, eAAC+, AC3 and FLAC audio files and MP4, DivX, WMV, H.264 and H.263 video files), and those rumours of the Hummingbird chips graphics processing being 3x the power and speed of the Snapdragon really make this phone one to keep an eye on.  And maybe, we can finally get a chance to see it outside.
