Giorgio Armani Samsung Galaxy S gets the Hands-On Treatment

We have heard a bit about the exclusive Samsung Giorgio Armani Galaxy S device, and now we’re being treated to a hands-on courtesy of pocket-lint. Only 800 of the Armani-branded devices will ship, making this a very exclusive device. In fact, if you’re interested in picking up this device, you will have to go to one of only 100 stores in the UK that are actually stocking the device - so you might want to hurry before they are sold out. The device itself is the Galaxy S i9010 and has a few cosmetic changes. Among them is the obvious Giorgio Armani branding above the screen, spruced up waffle-like design on the back plate, and is done in metal as opposed to plastic like the original device. The device’s design is near identical to the Samsung Captivate, which may be commonplace in the US, but in the UK it’s an entirely new design. Shipping for just under £50 as long as you sign up for a contract, the Samsung Armani Galaxy S is truly an impressive device and worth considering. [Via Pocket-Lint]
