Samsung's Galaxy S smartphone, announced at the CTIA Wireless show earlier this year, will finally be released in June, starting in Asia.
According to CNET Asia, the Galaxy S (a.k.a. i9000) will start at $1,098 SGD ($780 USD) - without a contract or subsidies, of course. Boasting a 4-inch Super AMOLED display that has gotten a lot of raves, the Galaxy S will first ship with Android 2.1 onboard, with promised upgrade to Android 2.2 Froyo at some unspecified date down the line.
While a release timeline hasn't been posted in regards to the rest of the world yet, it does appear that the Galaxy S is up for pre-order in Germany already.
