Hands-on with the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S 4G

Samsung took forever to update the Vibrant to 2.2, but this new Galaxy S 4G launches with Android Froyo so no worries there. This latest Galaxy S device also has support for 4G, a front facing camera, the movie Inception, and a cool new back. It is available from T-Mobile for $199.99 after signing up for a 2-year contract.

The back is different than the Vibrant and is quite attractive with the gray finish that has a highlight that appears to move as you rotate it.
