Samsung Galaxy S Known As Vibrant, Captivate, Fascinate With US Carriers

Confusingly, Samsung's Galaxy S will be sold under different names in the US. Verizon will have it as the Fascinate, T-Mobile as Vibrant, AT&T as the Captivate and US Cellular as the Galaxy S - and Sprint as Epic 4G.

It's essentially the same phone as the Galaxy S which is already on sale in the UK, only badged differently, with slightly different looks and a couple of extra features - on T-Mobile the Vibrant will come with Avatar on the 2GB microSD card and an "exclusive collector's edition of a popular game", along with MobiTV, Slacker Radio, Amazon Kindle for Android and a month of free in-flight Wi-Fi all pre-loaded.

Getting back to the phone, it's a keyboard-less phone with 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor and can shoot 720p video on the 5MP camera. The Epic 4G on Sprint is a more "Pro" version of the phone (which we've been seeing leaks of for weeks now), coming with a keyboard and that super-fast 4G connection.

US Cellular is playing a little hard-to-get with the specs of their version of the phone, with even the name of Galaxy S still not entirely confirmed.

Verizon's Fascinate and AT&T's Captivate will go on sale with Android 2.1, whereas T-Mobile and US Cellular haven't confirmed what they'll ship the phone with. On T-Mobile the Vibrant will cost $US200 when signing up for a two-year contract from July 21 when it goes on sale. [CNET]

    did you get a chance to review the Aussie version yet?

    Hey its ABOUT TIME US Cell gets a front line quick release phone! I have been with they for eons and this is the first time I can remember this happening! I am shocked and Amazed. I can't wait, I anm going to be the first one in the store when they release it, I have heard October 1'st, but thats a rumor. This is one SWEET looking phone and I can't wait to get rid of this Motorola Hint. Maybe we should start a museum of failed cell phones. Someplace useful like under 6 inches of asphalt!
