    T Mobile Launches the Samsung Galaxy S 4G Galaxy S 4G1

    For those of you seeking a beefed up Samsung Vibrant, you’ll be pleased to know that the Samsung Galaxy S 4G is now available for purchase. The Samsung Galaxy S 4G can hit download speeds of 21Mbps which makes it the fastest device in the market as other “4G” devices are capped a the previous standard of 14.5Mbps and also comes equipped with a front-facing camera which many of you have been longing for.

    Features of the Samsung Galaxy S 4G include:

    * Android 2.2
    * 4-inch Super AMOLED display
    * TouchWiz user-interface
    * 1GHz Hummingbird processor
    * 5MP camera
    * Front-facing camera
    * Inception pre-loaded

    If your looking to pick up this device today or in the near future, we suggest you shop around as T-Mobile has listed this device for $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and it’s currently available at Wal-Mart for $178.88. If you are willing to wait on this device, Wirefly has this device for $139.99 on a new contract and is available for pre-order now and it ships tomorrow.

    If you currently own a Samsung Vibrant and are looking to void your warranty, you can hit up XDA for a nice little guide to make your device video chat ready that takes a careful hand and the ordering of an inexpensive piece of hardware to get your device as close to this Galaxy S 4G as possible without ponying up the cash for a new handset.

    Be sure and let us know in the comments if you’re snagging the Samsung Galaxy S 4G or if this is a waste of a handset.

    I have researched both the T-mobile and at&t versions of the Samsung Galaxy S II and I know that there is commonality between their supported networks; e.g., GSM, HSDPA, WLAN, GPRS, EDGE, etc. I am leaning toward the unlocked at&t version, the Skyrocket i727 at this time. Does anyone know whether the at&t version will work on the T-Mobile network or not? I did stop into a T-Mobile store and asked if they knew of any differences between the two companies Galaxy S II phones and was told there weren't any differences. But, there are some and I want to ensure the unlocked at&t i727 version will function on the T-Mobile network.

    The Samsung Galaxy S 4G1 for T-Mobile does these modulations and these bands:

    GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
    WCDMA(HSDPA) 1700 / 2100

    The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket i727 does these modulations and these bands:

    GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
    LTE 700 / 1700
    WCDMA(HSDPA) 850 / 1900 / 2100

    There's a match on GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900, all the 2G is common. That's all that's locally usable. The WCDMA(HSDPA) 2100 is common, but T-Mobile has it in the UK and beyond.

    There's a match on the AWS band 1700, but T-Mobile USA uses HSDPA here, and AT&T Mobility plans LTE.

    This is similar to using an iPhone on T-Mobile USA--only the 2G matches.

    Thank you for the feedback. I will still get the AT&T version and possibly change carrier.
