One of the top selling smartphones in 2010, the Samsung i9000, or Galaxy S as its also known, is one of the clear standouts in a crowded Android market.
Aesthetics aside, this is basically a rebranded and slightly modified version of the Vibrant and Captivate already available with a number of carriers in Canada and the US.
The Galaxy S is powered by a 1GHz processor and complemented by 512MB of RAM with 16GB of on-board memory expandable via microSD (up to 32GB). It sports a brilliant 4-inch AMOLED display and comes packed with a 5-megapixel autofocus camera, HD video recording capabilities at 30fps, and a host of connectivity options including Wi-Fi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 3.0, and 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity.

You can't do much better for the price,...
