T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S 4G will be the successor to the Vibrant. Successor in that it will be a ’4G’ phone, as its name clearly underlines. In this case, the 4G means theoretical maximum throughput of 21 Mbps for the downstream, powered by HSPA+. Other than that, the smartphone will be amazingly similar, even in looks, to the Vibrant. T-Mobile has finally announced this device a few days ago, but all they would say is that it will become available sometime this month. As we were left guessing its price, a handy leak came along today to make everything clearer.
Walmart will apparently stock and sell the Galaxy S 4G. If you’ll get it from the well-known retailer, you’ll have to shell out $148.88, if you’re also planning on signing a new two-year contract. A data plan will naturally also be required. If you’re an existing T-Mobile customer and upgrading, you’ll get the same price, which is rather rare.
If you’d rather have the phone sans any service agreement, it will cost you a hefty $650. But it goes without saying that not many will use this option anyway.
Walmart’s pricing may or may not be an indicator of the ‘official’ TMo prices, we’ll have to wait and see. Though this might mean that the Galaxy S 4G may be only $149.99 from the magenta carrier, which is a nice price for a 4G device. And if TMo decide to make it more expensive, you can always just buy the phone from Walmart.
