Over at MobileReview (translated) they’ve gotten their hands on the scorching hot Samsung Galaxy S and have provided a full review that, even after jumping the language hurdle, seems pretty insightful. The thing that leaps out the most is a more specific price and date, something that has yet to be officially announced.
The Galaxy S will launch in June for 30,000 Rubles in Russia which is the equivalent of over $1,000 USD. Uhoh… we hope it doesn’t arrive in the Americas at such an inflated price. Even after contract and rebate, that would be a hefty price to pay. And with the HTC EVO 4G for Sprint being another obvious option, price should be a huge point of contention between these two Android Phones.
Although with Russian commentary, we thought you might like to see the video they did as it compares the Galaxy S to some other devices and runs through some of the screens and options:
I think$1,000 unsubsidized and even $500 subsidized is a fee that most Android fans won’t want the burden of enduring, but I’m hopeful that Samsung and whatever partners they choose will find a way to bring the Galaxy S to market more affordably than this initially rumored price.
