<p><em>"It's only been six months since Samsung launched its highly successful Galaxy S assault upon the US market with a series of carrier customized phones: the Vibrant and Captivate GSM twins for T-Mobile and AT&amp;T, the WiMAX-rocking Epic 4G for Sprint and the Fascinate for Verizon."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1299965752.usr206.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>I don't think anyone will&nbsp;argue&nbsp;that this device really isn't a huge leap forward in technology but is it a worthy update to current Vibrant users? The folks over at Engadget have given the Galaxy S 4G a thorough going over and have pretty much concluded that... eeh, not really. Though I might make the jump for the front facing camera and HSPA+ but with the Galaxy S 2 looming on the horizon I'm not sure how many people will jump on this device. I'd say its a great device for anyone switching to T-Mobile right now or someone upgrading from a much older, less smart, phone. Anyone out there&nbsp;eying&nbsp;this beauty?</p>

Barring some bad information on my part, the Galaxy S 2 will be on AT&T, not T-Mobile, so the Galaxy S 4G will be the best bet for T-Mobile customers.

Also, it's a HUGE leap in speed over the original Vibrant. If performance and a front-facing camera matters to you, this is a great phone to get. I've had some pretty extensive playtime with it and if they just fixed the stupidity of not having pinch to zoom in the mail clients (both G-Mail and Mail), I could see myself picking one up.
