The Samsung Vibrant is the hot new release from their Galaxy S series of Android smart phones. Its clean lines, slick design and soft edges make this smart phone easy on the eyes. The Vibrant is 4.82 inches tall, 2.54 inches wide, 0.39 inch thick and weighs in at 4.16 ounces.
All the video, graphics, apps and text look absolutely brilliant on its vivid, 4 inch, 400 by 800 pixel, Super AMOLED touch screen. It also has an anti-reflective screen, which keeps you working in sunlight or lowlight. The virtual QWERTY keyboard with SWYPE text input quickly gets your message to the recipient. An exceptionally fast 1 GHz Hummingbird Cortex A8 processor makes for speedy downloads. Create original content with a 5 megapixel camera/camcorder with autofocus and a 720p HD video recorder or use the Music Player to listen to your favorite tunes. Memory is expandable up to 32GB. Of course, the Vibrant isn’t the first phone in the market with these features, but it still makes this a major contender and available on all four major U.S. Carriers. T-Mobile offers this smart phone for $ 199.99 with a two year contract.
The Samsung Vibrant is powered by Google’s Android 2.1 operating system, which can also be upgradeable to the 2.2 OS. The Vibrant is WiFi enabled and includes a full HTML browser with pinch to zoom and integrated with Google Mobile Services including search, YouTube and Google Maps. The Samsung Vibrant integrates email, instant messages and SNS into one address book. As with many other smart phones, battery life is nothing to write home about. But it’s always a good idea to carry a spare and charge your phone every night.
