Samsung Galaxy S pre-order on Vodafone, Orange to follow?

i9000 The Samsung i9000 Galaxy S is another of those handsets that many seem to be eagerly awaiting. I’m sure that the 4″ Super AMOLED has a lot to do with the handset’s desirability and coupled with Android 2.1 it’s sure to make an impression.

Last night I saw that Vodafone have opened the Samsung S to pre-orders on their site and according to the current information if you pre-order today you’ll actually have the handset on the 15th June. I’m sure that it’s no coincidence that this is the same day that the iPhone opens to pre-order!

So following the Samsung S appearing on Vodafone I got an email tip this morning from a reader claiming that the handset would also be available on the Orange network over the next few weeks, this has yet to be confirmed though.

If you want to order the Galaxy S sim-free you can do so from our friends over at Clove Technology.



Overview of Samsung Galaxy S I9000 (16GB)

The I9000 Galaxy S is Samsung’s flagship Android device. The Galaxy S not only runs the latest version of Android (2.1), but packs a feature set sure to rival that of any other Smartphone.

So what sets this handset apart from other Android devices on the market? First of all there’s the 4″ SUPER-AMOLED, touch-screen display. This new Super AMOLED technology developed by Samsung not only produces an amazing picture, it also saves on battery life, making the I9000 Galaxy S ideal for media playback and in-car satellite navigation.

As well as the cutting edge display, the Galaxy S comes with 8GB internal memory, the largest internal memory storage available on an Android device to date. With MicroSD storage, an additional 32GB can also be added to the memory. In terms of media storage and playback, this takes the I9000 above and beyond top of the range portable devices such as the iPod Touch.

Power and speed are also important features of the I9000 Galaxy S. The 1GHz processor ensures that device navigation is as smooth as possible, while the 3.5G connectivity provides the fastest possible mobile-internet browsing. With download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps and upload speeds of up to 5.76 Mbps, you’ll be able to make use of the device’s Facebook capabilities when out and about.

The Samsung I9000 also comes with an impressive Camera. Besides that of the Sony XPERIA X10, which packs an astonishing 8MP Camera, this is the highest spec camera seen in an Android device to date. The Galaxy S has a 5MP camera with auto-focus, capable of recording 720p video footage at 30 frames per second.

The other features of the I9000 Galaxy S at a glance are a 3.5mm headphone connection, Bluetooth 3.0, quad-band connectivity, Swype text input, Wi-Fi, FM Radio and compatibility with the vast majority of media types.

The large internal storage, combined with the Super AMOLED touch screen display, social-networking capability and access to the Android market place makes the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S a more than worthy competitor to other high-end devices such as the iPhone 3GS and HTC Desire.
