A couple of months ago, we first showed you the new Samsung-made Giorgio Armani Galaxy S smartphone. This is, in essence, a rebranded version of AT&T’s Samsung Captivate, only one made available internationally, whereas the Captivate is an AT&T exclusive. Oh, and did we mention the Giorgio Armani branding? That’s prominent. And, given that, it’s quite clear who this phone is made to appeal to – the upper class, so to speak.
And it’s priced accordingly. Even if, spec-wise, it’s identical to the Captivate, having the same 4-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, 1 GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 512 MB of RAM and 16 GB of storage space. Unlike the Captivate though, the Armani runs Android 2.2 Froyo. So that’s a step forward.
The Giorgio Armani Galaxy S phone has hit the UK, where retailer Phones4U has it in stock right now. It can be yours for a variety of prices, depending on which contract you pick and which network. The cheapest on-contract price that will get you the phone for free is just a tad north of £45 per month, with a 2-year commitment to Vodafone. But there are many options, so head right over to Phones4U to make your pick.
