Moneto sets the Galaxy S up for contactless payments, coming to more Android devices soon

Last month Moneto revealed plans to bring their NFC-enabled microSD card payment system to Android phones. Now the first compatible cards are available for purchase. There is a catch, however.

Cyanogen Mod for Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile Galaxy S) Support Dropped Due to 911 Issue

While the Samsung Vibrant may not be the newest kid on the block anymore, it’s still quite the capable device and one that has gotten tons of support through community development. One community ROM was the ever-so-popular Cyanogen Mod. I say “was” because support is no longer being offered for this device. Not, it’s n0t […]

CyanogenMod 7 comes to a handful of new Samsung devices

The CyanogenMod family of devices is continuing to grow, with this week seeing official support of its first Samsung device, AT&T’s Captivate. But that wasn’t the only Sammy phone to gain the privilege. Also added to the ranks were the Samsung Galaxy S, Vibrant, and Nexus S 4G. ROMs for these phones haven’t reached official […]

Samsung Vibrant/Galaxy S 4G Passes FCC With AT&T Bands; Manages to Win Best of Show at CTIA

It’s been discovered that Samsung has submitted another version of the Samsung Vibrant to the FCC with AT&T 3G bands suggesting AT&T could be preparing to migrate customers over to their network soon.

CyanogenMod.com Debuts Device List, Releases Test Version for Samsung Vibrant

CyanogenMod is rocking the morning wire on this fine Friday. Firstly: they have a new phone portal that will show you a list of their officially supported devices.

First we just got the source code for Sprint’s Samsung EPIC 4G froyo update and official word that it’d be rolling out February 21st, and now we’ve learned that Samsung has also uploaded the source code for T-Mobile’s Samsung Vibrant. Samsung and T-Mobile had already released an update for the Vibrant through Mini Kies, but […]

Samsung Vibrant Froyo Update Available Only as an Optional Kies Update, Mandatory OTA Coming Later?

It looks like there is, in fact, a catch to the Samsung Vibrant update to Android 2.2 through T-Mobile. While an update is indeed being made available to users in the form of a build version KA6, word from inside T-Mobile is suggesting that this is an optional update coming via the Samsung Kies software, […]

Android 2.2 Froyo Begins Rolling Out January 21st for the Samsung Vibrant at T-Mobile

All the speculation about the Android 2.2 update for the Samsung Vibrant — all the claims that Samsung and T-Mobile were holding it back intentionally or that T-Mobile didn’t want to pay Samsung for the update — looks like it is about to end. Speaking to PC Mag, chief marketing officer at T-Mobile Cole Brodman […]

“My Phone” Rap Created By Class Action Lawsuit Filer [Samsung, T-Mobile, Dramaz]

This is the last thing I thought I’d see in the sudden uproar against Samsung and T-Mobile over the Vibrant debacle. (Rumors alleged that Samsung and T-Mobile were holding back the Android 2.2 update for the original Vibrant until after the as-yet unannounced Samsung Vibrant 4G has been launched.) The class action lawsuit was expected […]

Samsung’s Response to Vibrant Froyo Debacle Won’t Ease Owners’ Frustration

Ever since a wild rumor surfaced claiming Samsung and T-Mobile are purposefully withholding the upgrade to Android 2.2 (Froyo) for the Samsung Vibrant in order to boost anticipation for the Samsung Vibrant 4G, the internet has been ablaze with hate only rivaled by the uproar over undelivered but promised updates for the Samsung Behold II. […]

Ticked XDA Member Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Samsung, T-Mobile Over Froyo

Things just hit the fan (sort of): an XDA member – MicBeast, to be exact – has filed a class action lawsuit with firm Edelson against T-Mobile and Samsung over violating the law of “Unfair and Deceptive Consumer Business Practices” due to the lack of updates for the Samsung Vibrant. Here are his claims: they […]

Rumor: Original Samsung Vibrant Froyo Update Being Purposely Held Due to Vibrant Plus

Ruh-roh. Some huge allegations are being thrown around regarding Samsung and their hard time of getting the upgrade to Android 2.2 out for T-Mobile’s original Vibrant. AndroidSpin is reporting that their source familiar with the situation has admitted that the original Vibrant’s Froyo upgrade is ready to be pushed out at any moment. Why the […]

Get a Samsung Vibrant Free from T-Mobile with New Two-Year Contract or Extension

Yeah, it will still be a little while before the Vibrant and its brethren of US Galaxy S phones gets Android 2.2 (let alone 2.3), but that shouldn’t stop you from considering a great deal on the handset from T-Mobile. If you purchase the phone online with a new two-year contract or an extension of […]

Samsung Pulls Android 2.2 Update for Vibrant

Galaxy S users just can’t get a break. If it isn’t annoying GPS problems, its usually something to do with their insistence on using the shoddy at best Samsung Kies software to install software updates. Or it is complains about the actual update itself, as has been the case with the recently released Android 2.2 […]

T-Mobile Dropping Samsung Galaxy Tab and Vibrant Pricing

If you have been staving off a Samsung Galaxy Tab purchase hoping for some better pricing options, T-Mobile is making the idea a little bit easier to swallow with holiday price drop on the device.
