US Cellular Confirms Galaxy S Coming

US Cellular has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S will be one of their four Android-based handsets slated for release this year.  It was just last week when I suggested that US Cellular would offer this device as Samsung is practically blanketing the world with this phone.  The Galaxy S follows the HTC Desire and Samsung Acclaim and definitely positions the smaller carrier as one who “gets” Android. 

Unlike the big four players, it doesn’t look like this will be a custom US Cellular version of the device.  If we were to liken it to any of the US models, Verizon’s Fascinate seems a logical choice.  We’ve yet to see pictures of either model so for all we know, they could be the same.  The hardware reads like this: 1 GHz Hummingbird processor, 4-inch Super AMOLED display, and a 5 megapixel camera with HD (720p) video recording.  The phone is powered by Android 2.1 and has the Samsung TouchWiz 3.0 UI.  We’re waiting for pricing and release date so be sure to check back.
