And, thanks to the guys over at SlashGear, you get to find out whether or not you should be interested in the superphone from Samsung.
Features wise, what does the Galaxy S bring to the table? First and foremost, a 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480. Capacitive touch buttons fall in line underneath the screen. You’ll also get your hands on 8GB of internal memory, which is partitioned to 2GB for application storage and 6GB for media storage.
