Well, it was really only a matter of time before third parties stuck their nose in the ongoing battle between Apple and Samsung. For most of this time others have stood on the sidelines, occasionally shouting moral support. But, no one has rolled up their sleeves and put up their dukes for either

Oh, sure -- Samsung's Galaxy S II should be hitting American airwaves quicker than you can say \"Where'd my weekend go?,\" but we're living in the here and now, aren't we? Now that you've survived whatever scare was scheduled for today, it's time to get back to what matters most: answering fict

It's only been six months since Samsung launched its highly successful Galaxy S assault upon the US market with a series of carrier customized phones: the Vibrant and Captivate GSM twins for T-Mobile and AT&T, the WiMAX-rocking Epic 4G for Sprint and the Fascinate for Verizon. More derivati

iFixit's teardown of the Samsung Galaxy S 4G doesn't exactly contain a ton of surprises -- until the very end, that is. Apparently, there's been some talk that Samsung used magnesium instead of aluminum for some of the components, and the best way iFixit could find to test that was to file some dus

Samsung's Galaxy S 4G might not have the very latest version of Android or too much hardware differentiation from the original T-Mobile Vibrant, but hey, it brings a front-facing camera and HSPA+ connectivity, so of course it costs $200. T-Mobile will have disappointed many with its clarification t

Here's a quick heads-up, if you had your heart set on Samsung's Galaxy S 4G: T-Mobile says it'll actually cost $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. That means you're paying $250 out the door for an HSPA+ capable Vibrant, not counting taxes and related fees. T-Mobile says the original $150 price was

Liked that Galaxy S 4G we just showed you chowing down on tapas out in Barcelona? Well, take heart, T-Mobile subscribers: your Vibrant replacement with HSPA+ support and video calling capability has just been assigned a February 23rd release date for $149.99 on contract.

What do you get when you gently massage HSPA+ support and a front-facing camera for video calling into a Vibrant's backside using technology, science, and a selection of essential oils? Well, you get a Galaxy S 4G -- and in the case of Samsung's US-focused event this evening here at MWC, you get a

It may be a Vibrant with Froyo, a front-facing camera and a thing for Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but it's still downright enviable when you consider the Galaxy S 4G's innate support for 21Mbps downloads. As of today, neither Samsung nor T-Mobile USA have been perfectly clear about how much they'd be dem

Look, let us just sum up the Galaxy S 4G for you: it's a Vibrant with Froyo, a front-facing camera, and Inception. After reading through the new details T-Mobile's outed on its latest HSPA+-equipped Android smartphone today, that's really the best way to describe it... and let's face it, Avatar (wh

Here's what we know: the Samsung Galaxy S 4G is coming to T-Mobile's HSPA+ network (we heard as much this morning from the carrier itself, actually, but now Samsung's got an announcement all its own). There's a Super AMOLED screen of unknown size and Android 2.2 Froyo. Here's what we don't know: an
