Samsung Galaxy S 4G now available from T-Mobile

T-Mobile customers looking for another 4G handset option can now pick up the all new Samsung Galaxy S 4G.  In order to be clear, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G is really just a rehash of the original Samsung Vibrant loaded up with Inception and equipped with a new radio chip which allows you to jump on T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ network.  While the Galaxy S 4G isn’t the first 4G phone on T-Mobile’s network, it is the first handset capable of reaching download speeds of up to 21 mbps while the myTouch 4G and T-Mobile G2 both max out at 14.4 mbps.  That may not make a huge difference right now, but anyone who picks up the Galaxy S 4G should see some significant speeds increases once T-Mobile doubles their HSPA+ network speeds from 21 mbps to 42 mbps later this year. 

The Samsung Galaxy S 4G is being sold for $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and two year contract discount.  T-Mobile customers on Even More Plus plans will need to pony up $499.99.  It may not be much of a refresh, but the Samsung Galaxy S 4G  may be the first phone from T-Mobile that will be able to compete with the LTE speeds Verizon is about to unleash with the HTC Thunderbolt.
