TOKYO, JAPAN, October 21, 2010 — NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today that it will begin selling a Japanese-market version of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.’s GALAXY S smartphone nationwide in Japan on October 28.

The GALAXY S features a 4-inch, ultra-bright SUPER AMOLED high-resolution touch screen that plays full high-definition (Full HD) video. Multi-touch functionality enables intuitive control of the screen. The 5.0-megapixel camera shoots high-definition video and the phone supports Flash® for PC-like access to diverse Web content, including Flash-based games.

The device is powered by the Android™ 2.2 operating system, which is compatible with a large variety of applications available at the “docomo market” mobile portal, as well as Android Market™ and Samsung Apps. The GALAXY S supports DOCOMO’s sp-mode™ service, which enables smartphones to access i-mode™ mail accounts.

The GALAXY S also is compatible with an e-book distribution service that DOCOMO plans to launch on a trial basis on the same day that GALAXY S sales begin.

There are also two pdfs with some additional information and specs. But the good news is that the Galaxy S will, in fact, launch with 2.2.
