Samsung Goes For Broke With Galaxy S Variants
Samsung has announced different versions of its Galaxy S series Android phone with
AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon Wireless

Samsung is looking to steal some of the limelight from Apple, it would appear. In the last five or so
days, Samsung and five of its carrier partners have all announced their own custom version of the
Galaxy S handset. Let's look at this device and the differences between all the carriers.
First, what features are the same across all five devices? They share Samsung's four-inch Super
AMOLED display. Based on my experience, Samsung's Super AMOLED displays are among the
brightest and sharpest around. They simply look stunning.
IT must operate as a business within a business - providing resources to the company - in order to get
dollars they need.
Review seven steps to aligning IT with the business.
All Galaxy S variants also include Samsung's 1GHz A8 Cortex Hummingbird processor, Android 2.1
operating system with TouchWiz 3.0, 5 megapixel camera with 720p HD video capture, 802.11b/g/n
Wi-Fi, and Swype software for the on-screen soft QWERTY keyboard.
All five will be among the first to ship with Bluetooth 3.0, which offers some unique features, such as
high-speed data transfers between devices.
AT&T's Captivate has tri-band HSPA 3G on board and includes 16GB of internal storage. According
to AT&T, it lacks a lot of the custom software that Samsung has developed for the Galaxy S. It also
doesn't appear to have a front-facing camera.
Sprint's Epic 4G comes with WiMax, making it the second 4G phone for the Sprint network. Its other
defining characteristic is that it is the only Galaxy S device with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for
messaging. Sprint showed me the Epic 4G. Despite the addition of the keyboard, it is amazingly thin and
light. The Super AMOLED technology goes a long way to help the Galaxy S family remain slim. It will
be boxed with a 16GB microSD card, but doesn't appear to have the built-in storage that the Captivate
from AT&T does. The Epic 4G will, however, come with a user-facing VGA camera and Qik's video

sharing software. It will include Samsung's Social Hub and Media Hub to help users aggregate social
networking and content.
T-Mobile's Vibrant has HSPA 3G inside and will be boxed with a 2GB microSD card. It lacks a userfacing camera, physical keyboard, and Samsung's Social Hub and Media Hub software. It will, however,
be preloaded with the movie Avatar and a free month of Go-Go in-flight Wi-Fi service.
U.S. Cellular's version of the Galaxy S will simply be called the Galaxy S. That's OK. It comes with
fewer features than its competitors do, such as no user-facing camera and no keyboard. It won't be
boxed with a microSD card (according to what we know), which is actually kind of lame. This is the
weakest version of the bunch when it comes to extra and/or defining features.
Verizon Wireless' Fascinate's biggest leg up on the competition is that it will come with mobile
hotspot creator software on board, allowing the Fascinate to act as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to five
devices. It won't have a user-facing camera or a keyboard, but it is packed with Verizon applications.
Some of the apps include V CAST Video, Rhapsody, VZ Navigator, as well as Samsung's Social Hub,
Media Hub and support for DLNA content. It will be boxed with a 16GB microSD card, and supports
cards up to 32GB.
