The Samsung Galaxy S unveiling may have been slightly eclipsed yesterday by Sprint’s announcement of their Motorola EVO 4G Android phone, but that doesn’t make the Galaxy S any less amazing in its own right. We got a chance to talk with Samsung about their upcoming Android 2.1 handset, and we managed to get a demonstration of the Galaxy S’s Super AMOLED display, the Daily Briefing homescreen pane, the S Life interface, and a look at the device’s incredibly slim 9.9mm profile.
From the spec-sheet perspective, the Galaxy S boasts all the latest in high-end smartphone tech. It’s packed with the industry-leading 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, a 1Ghz Samsung processor, 3G data connectivity, WiFi, GPS, 16GB onboard memory, microSD card slot, and a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. Android 2.1 OS runs the show with the Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0 widgets pre-loaded for your convenience.
The Daily Briefing homescreen pane places all the information that’s most important to you right on the homescreen – so you can start your day with an overview of what to expect and what you have to get done. The eBook reader and store are impressive, but nothing too shockingly new in this age digital readers. Overall, the Galaxy S is one seriously power-packed Android phone.
