You can get it online or in store, but thehandset should be available also at retailers like RadioShack, Wirefly, Walmart andothers, which might offer a better deal for the handset. Questionhowever remains whether the innovations in the S 4G provide enough ground foran upgrade if you already own a Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile's reincarnation of the Galaxy S). Basically, the handset only differs by offering faster data, afront-facing camera and support for Wi-Fi calls. To lure youinto a purchase, the phone comes with the iconic movie Inceptionpreloaded. All of that paired with the handset's HD movieplayback capabilities requires some additional power and that's whythe Galaxy S 4G packs a 1650mAh battery, up from 1500mAh on theVibrant.
