T-Mo soon to offer Samsung Vibrant 4G with 21+ Mbps speeds, Froyo and a front-facing camera
T-Mobile's myTouch 4G is soon to be joined by another "4G" handset, and it's none other than the Samsung Vibrant 4G. This Samsung Galaxy S series phone is set to be the first to offer 21+ Mbps speeds on T-Mo's HSPA+ network, as the G2 and myTouch 4G are limited to 14.4 Mbps at present.

Also, it will come with a front-facing camera and Qik's video services, and will be the first US Samsung Galaxy S phone, which will get the long overdue Android version 2.2. Some more goodies like the preloaded full version of the movie Inception is on board, as well as Slacker Radio and Amazon Kindle reader.

Details about price and availability are not present at the moment, but what's known is that this handset is going to get heavy TV and cinema advertising.

Happy, T-Mo subscribers? How much of a chance do you think this updated Vibrant stands in this 4G-ish, dual-core mobile world?

@Lindomar Not quite true, the Tmobile Mytouch 3Gs got the Froyo update and the 4G has been out for a bit. Unless Samsung wants to be jerks about it, there should be an update to Froyo for the current Vibrant.
