Samsung Galaxy S 4G pegged for February 23rd launch at $200

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. We've known for some time that it'd be released in February, granted, but look at it this way: they're pushing it out a full five days before they'd absolutely have to in order to stay true to their word. If you're feeling tempted, given Sammy's track record, just be sure you're comfortable with the idea that you might be on Froyo for a while.

Update: T-Mobile says the price was a mistake, and it'll actually cost $200 after rebate.
