Hands-On with the Samsung Galaxy S 4G
We go hands-on with the new Samsung Galaxy S 4G for T-Mobile, essentially a feature bump to the Vibrant.

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G is mostly just a Vibrant with 4G and a front-facing camera. While the Vibrant had HSPA 7.2, the Galaxy S 4G steps all the way up to HSPA+ 21 Mbps, which is the very top speed available with any HSPA+ network or phone at the moment. So it's not a tad faster, it's as fast as it gets.
Except for the new color of the battery cover, you can't tell it's not a Vibrant. It's exactly the same body, just as thin and light (very.) The new back shell has a shimmering effect that makes it look curvy, but it's an optical trick; it's flat.
There's Qik for video chat, to take advantage of the front-facing camera, and T-Mobile's Wi-Fi Calling app, of course.
One nice twist (so to speak) is the inclusion of the DoubleTwist app with AirSync, so you can sync your media with your PC over Wi-Fi.
Somehow, they squeezed a 1650 mAh battery in there, whereas the Vibrant had only a 1500 mAh juice pack. There's no increase in thickness for this. You'll need that extra power to watch Inception, which is pre-loaded for free. There's also a T-Mobile TV app, if you care to pay T-Mobile to stream video clips.
The Galaxy S 4G ships with Android 2.2. Look for it February 23 on T-Mobile for $149 with a two-year contract.
