T-Mobile moves Samsung Vibrant up one week to July 15th

Multiple T-Mobile retail locations are reporting that the Samsung Vibrant will now launch on July 15th, instead of the original date of July 21st. New customers can grab the high-end smartphone for $199 with a 2-year contract and the full price off-contract is $449.99.

If July 15th sounds familiar, that is also the same day Verizon is launching the Droid X for the same price. The Droid X has a larger 4.3 inch display and a higher 8 megapixel camera with flash, but the Vibrant has the best display technology (Super AMOLED) and the fastest graphics processor found in an Android phone. T-Mobile customers also have the added benefit of 4G-like speeds, thanks to T-Mobile’s upgrade to HSPA+.

The Vibrant is the first high-end 1 GHz Android phone to land on T-Mobile, so it might attract a bunch of customers who have been waiting to upgrade their handset. Of course there is always something faster around the corner, but the Vibrant’s beautiful display and super-fast GPU might make this the sweet spot to jump in.

So what’s it going to be T-Mobile fans? Is anyone lining up for the Vibrant or would you rather wait a couple more months and hold off for the rumored HTC Project Emerald?
