Anyone else getting a Samsung Galaxy S phone?
 
I think I'll pick up the TMobile version this Thursday when it comes out. It's supposed to be a pretty nice and fast phone. It has a 1GHZ Hummingbird processor with a gpu that is 3x faster than any other phone out. It also has 512 RAM.
The Tmobile one has no front facing camera or flash like some of the other carriers but it does have 16gb internal memory and another 2gb SD Card included. The 4" Super AMOLED screen is supposed to be very nice. Also comes with Kindle, Sims game and Avatar in HD (on the 2gb sd card I heard) and Android 2.1. I have read that they are going to be putting 2.2 on it but we will see.

Avatar in HD (on the 2gb sd card I heard

haha, 3 hour movie in HD on 2gb card, not gonna happen.

for 720p, about 40 minutes will take about 1.1gb at acceptable quality, so to fit 3 hours on 2gb, they either went really low on resolution or really bad/low bitrate.

The GPU speed is irrelevant with any Android device. There aren't any decent games to play. If you want to play a game, pick up the iPhone or (believe it or not) a Palm Pre.

Well the article I read said HD but on that little screen it for sure isn't going to be 1080 or 720, of course they went low resolution but on that little screen it will look close to HD.

I want to go T Mobile so me and my wife can be on a family plan and plus I can call her and bug her and not have it take any minutes away ;)
I don't want an iphone but the Incredible looks good though.
I figure if I'm going to get a new phone I might as well get the best one out that TMobile has. I still do love the hell out of the Garmin GPS on my wife's Garminfone though.

it might, but calling something HD when it isn't, it just mad marketing.

anyway, the device looks great.

Yea I agree nekro. Anyways I didn't care for the movie that much anyways (the 3d was good though) so no big deal. Hell I will probably copy it to my computer anyways and just format the card for extra space. The SIms game could go too for all I care as i don't play those games but my wife does so she will probably be borrowing my phone a lot.

I want the Captivate soooo bad.

If I find a job, this is my next phone.

They are both Galaxy S phones. The Captivate is a little more squared off looking than the more rounded Vibrant.

This guy tries to destroy a Galaxy S and I am surprised how scratch resistant the screen is.
