Samsung Galaxy S 4G or Vibrant??

I bought three used Samsung Vibrants off of Craigslist in the past month and I just noticed that the one I have been using looks allot like the 4G version. They all have the two "eyes" located to the left of the speaker but, the one I have been using has what appears to be a camera hole to the right just like the 4G. Is it possible that I bought a 4G phone? The software says that it is a Vibrant but, I wanted to know if perhaps the phone could have been flashed that way? Is there a way to clone the 4G software and install it on my phone if it is in fact a 4G? I keep looking at the supplied photos and the Vibrant does not show this additional camera hole on the right, only the GalaxyS 4G. Are there variations on the Vibrant model?

Came out with already old Froyo version

It really gets me when I see that T-Mo phones still keep coming out with Android ver. 2.2 even though 2.3 Gingerbread has been out since last year. How long will it take for T-Mo to update this to 2.3? It would have been much better to come out with it in the first place.
Don't blame T-Mobile, ALL carriers are still only releasing 2.2 phones. Only the Nexus S has Gingerbread...
Well...I just two days ago updated my Vibrant to Froyo and it had almost nothing to do with T-Mobile (the updating that is). As a side note, it wasn't exactly a smooth process either. Maybe T-Mobile should have pushed it out OTA instead of making us p...

TINY internal memory

I retract my previous statement about wishing I had waited for this instead of getting my Vibrant. I am at limit with my current memory using the included 16 gigs and 2 gig micro sd. There's no way the 4g could handle my kind of usage. Rolling Eyes
If you put a 32 GB card in, you'd have a lot more memory than the 18 GB you have now. Confused
I currently have an 8GB memory cared in my HTC Droid Eris and its fine. 16 GB is beautiful to me Smilemy dad wants to switch to T-Mobile so i guess this is the phone I will get.

Just an Upgraded Vibrant!

Why would T-Mobile offer this version of the Galaxy phone series when Samsung is about to launch the Galaxy S II shortly? The new phone offers the new dual-core Orion processor, NFC, 8 mega pixel camera, and,1080p video capture. While the S or should we call it the Vibrant II has the Cortex A8 Hummingbird 5 mega pixel camera with 720p video capture. Will we see the newer version of the phone later this year? How about calling it the Vibrant Extreme!

T-Mobile needs to step up its game and become an industry leader and offer the latest phones withe the newest features.
Don't be so naive. The Galaxy S II is still months away from a US launch I can pretty much guarantee. Samsung developed the S 4G already, so why not offer it in the meantime until the SGSII launches? Its not like they are launching this and SGSII is a...

Correction on the battery

Great mini review Eric, but there is one falsehood in your review. The Galaxy S 4G actually has a bigger battery, one of the biggest I've ever seen at 1650, compared to the Vibrant's 1500. Might want to correct that.
