Samsung 'Galaxy S' Android devices headed to more carriers? PCMag is reporting today that Samsung has sent out a press invite to "join Samsung Mobile as we unveil a new class of brilliant Android smartphones" on June 29th. The invite has a Galaxy S logo on it, which the company introduced in March.
Generically, the Galaxy S line devices all include Super AMOLED screens, which are 20 percent brighter, with 80 percent less sunlight reflection and 20 percent more battery life. Each model will have at least a 1Ghz processor, as well.

Samsung introduced the first Galaxy S phone, the Captivate, earlier in the week, with the phone headed to AT&T.

The Captivate has a 1Ghz Samsung Hummingbird processor, which the company says is comparable to Qualcomm Snapdragon chips at the same speed. Additionally, it has 5MP camera, and accelerometer and gyroscope for 3D motion sensing, 16 GB of built-in storage, HD video recording and surround sound.

When the company initially launched the line, it said it wanted the phones on all U.S. carriers, and the event in two weeks may be the announcement.

The marketing on these phones has really been turned up since the iPhone 4 was introduced by apple. I've notice that website are starting to give the Android Phones aways. A website "" is offering androids phones for free and code for a free 2GB Memory Card when purchased through their website. I assume the carrier "Verizon" is hoping to make these discounts back in the monthly fees they charge. I've got another year on my Blackberry contract before I can make the change.

Sure, you’re excited about the Samsung Galaxy S.



And imagine 6 months after you bought the Galaxy. You’re angry. You been lied to. The promised updates never come. There are real problems just using the phone. Forums like this fill with users like you, angry, dumping the phone, and comparing how little they can get for it on craigslist. $150? If you’re lucky.

You’ll never buy a Samsung product again. Samsung has hired a PR firm to try to hide the real problems you and thousands of others are having with the phone.

This is real.

Do some research on the Samsung Behold II. This is Samsung’s business model.
1) Shiny new phone with promised updates
2) Wait… there’s no money in supporting a phone, only in selling new ones.
3) Refuse promised updates on under plainly false pretenses.
4) Go to step 1.
5) Profit.

Please, do not buy this or any other Samsung phone. HTC and Apple make nice phones that they support. Tell your friends.

I’m just a regular guy who fell for their lies. Don’t be me, 6 months from now, in a forum, writing this same message.
