Vodafone has already started to stock the new Samsung Galaxy S smartphone with the mobile phone operator expected to ship the first orders on the 15th of June and with monthly contract prices starting from £35 per month.
The phone, which will face the new iPhone 4 and countless others Android smartphones, comes with a 4-inch super-AMOLED screen, a 1GHz ARM-based SoC, 16GB onboard memory expandable to 48GB (with an optional 32GB microSD card), Android OS 2.1 and a 5-megapixel camera with flash.
Other now-standard features include the ability to record high definition video, 3G, GPS, Wi-Fi, Samsung's proprietary mobile Digital Natural Image engine (mDNIe) and its own Social Hub feature which acts as a social aggregator.
You will also be able to connect the phone with your monitor and customers willing to go on a two year contract will get the phone for free from Vodafone. The £35 monthly contract includes 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB monthly data allowance.
The Samsung Galaxy S 16GB is exclusive to Vodafone for now, which means that other mobile operators are likely to get slightly different versions. Customers can buy the Galaxy S smartphone here.
