Samsung Galaxy S: Optus’ New Android Flagshipgizmodo.com.au
June 23, 2010
The original Samsung Galaxy was a bit of a bland attempt for the company’s first Android phone. But things were looking up with the announcement of the Galaxy S back in March, with its 1GHz processor and Android 2.2 OS out of the box.
On specs alone, the Galaxy S is going to give the HTC Desire a run for its money. Tri-band HSPA (900, 1900 and 2100MHz), Android 2.2, 4-inch 800 x 400 AMOLED touchscreen, 5MP camera with 720p video recording at 30fps, inbuilt GPS, accelerometer, Bluetooth, WiFi (802.11b/g/n), 16GB inbuilt storage with MicroSD support capable of adding another 32GB and a 1500mAh battery… If you’re not exhausted by reading that, you’ve got better stamina than me.
The phone itself comes with a heap of pre-installed apps, including a few Optus programs (like OptusZoo), plus apps like Layar augmented reality and the Borders branded Kobo reader. Optus has even done a deal with Borders to offer a couple of Aussie books – Underbelly: The Golden Mile and The Slap by Christos Tsolkias – to the first 20,000 Optus customers to redeem the offer.« Back Read More »
