Update: The Vibrant has launched in the U.S. It is $200 on a two year contract, $500 suggested retail. The Vibrant's software is as depicted in this video. (So I was right. LOL). But this phone is the i9000.

The SGS Vibrant is an Android-based 2.1 superphone and Samsung will update the phone to Android 2.2, Froyo.

Sidenote: AT&T announced its version last week, it will be called the "Captivate." It is launching on July 18.

I don't like those names so I am declaring that the T-Mobile version will be the "Vibrator" and AT&T's the "Constipate."

This is the famous video preview of the Samsung Galaxy S (SGS) by Howard Chiu of Howard's Forums, that was once up, but he took it down.

Was it because T-Mobile is not ready to spill the beans on this exciting phone? Maybe he did not like his work and is planning a redo? I don't know why, but he did an excellent job so I am glad to be able to show it to you here.

Look carefully and you will see convincing evidence that this OS is T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S. (There's T-Mobile applications, the T-Mobile logo and Samsung's model name conventions for phones going to T-Mobile. See in the "About" screen where it says SGH-T959.)

My prediction is a July-August debut. (I originally predicted a June debut, but I guess the myTouch Slide will be T-Mobile's June handset.)

This is a hot handset. Let's hope that Samsung provides a proper remedy on the Behold II upgrade controversy so that people will embrace this great handset. If Samsung screws over Behold 2 owners, I predict sales of the SGS will suffer.


Sidenote: With Philipp Humm as the new CEO for TMOUS perhaps he will see that one of T-Mobile's problems is the lack of hot handsets and always playing catch up. So he might move up the SGS debut?
