Samsung Galaxy S Hits Germany, Asia Targeted for June

The first (and only) Android phone with a Super AMOLED display has started its world tour.  First up is Germany where users can pick one up from Amazon Germany at the not-so-low cost of €649 euros ($799 US). Next month will see the Asian market releasing the phone for roughly the full retail price of S$1,098 ($775 US). Even with its 4-inch screen, 1GHz Hummingbird chip, and 5 megapixel camera, we hope the price comes down a little bit when it arrives stateside.  Although the phone will be shipping with Android 2.1, Samsung claims it will get Froyo (2.2) .

    So I guess it is not very likely this will be on AT&T in June. :( Let's hope this Aria turns out to be a good one. Not everyone on AT&T wants an iPhone!!

    Looks like the Galaxy S will be on T-Mobile as T959 and on AT&T as I897.

    Samsung has a terrible record of abandoning updates after a phone is released.

    Is that "SAMOLED" thingie worth it? Did anyone compare it to something like the Nexus1 or Desire?

    No way it costs that much when it reaches here. There's more to it than just exchange rate. Things like taxes and tariffs and market tolerance have a lot to do with it. So does the retailer. I recently saw that Best Buy was charging $557 for pre-orders of the T-Mobile MyTouch Slide, which will sell at T-Mo stores for $399. With the EVO 4G selling at $499 full price, I don't see this selling at any more than $570 or so. That's still a lot, but not that bad.
