Samsung Galaxy S to be offered in U.S. later this year
While Samsung launched the Galaxy S in over 100 countries yesterday, the U.S. was not one of the places that felt the effect of Samsung's global blitz. But that doesn't mean that the Korean-based firm's superphone won't be wearing red, white and blue. The manufacturer has announced that the Android flavored device will be offered in the U.S. later this year. The unit that was released overseas yesterday has 3G frequencies that are not compatible with U.S. carriers. As for which of the stateside operators will be lucky enough to add the Galaxy S to its lineup, unless Samsung offers a CDMA variant, we are looking at either AT&T or T-Mobile. Last month, we reported that a leaked photo of the handset showed a Media Server name that normally corresponds to a T-Mobile release. The Galaxy S uses a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, and along with its 4 inch Super AMOLED screen, is Samsung's response to the 1GHz Snapdragon powered Android phones that have been launched recently by HTC. By pushing back a U.S. release until later this year, the Galaxy S gets to avoid a head-on battle with the EVO 4G and the U.S. media attention that will greet the introduction of the next generation iPhone.
