According to leaked information, WIND is getting set to release the Samsung Galaxy S 4G. The Android handset is expected to launch tomorrow, providing yet another option for those with WIND or considering the switch.

The handset features a 4? Super AMOLED display, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Apparently it?s powered by a 1 GHz processor, which sets it back compared to many current Android devices. Other details are still relatively unknown, but it seems to fit in quite well with the original Galaxy S line-up, including the Vibrant, Captivate, and Fascinate.

As for pricing, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G is expected to come in at $49 on the WINDtab with the $40 plan, $249 with the WINDtab with the $25 monthly plan, or $399 outright.

The Samsung Galaxy S series of handsets, including the Fascinate, Captivate, and Vibrant have been favourites of Canadians since their launch last year. Even the Galaxy Tab did well, being one of the first tablets available besides Apple's iPad. Unfortunately, all of these devices have been stuck on Froyo since at least December of last year, and while speculation pointed to a future Gingerbread update, confirmation was still awaited.

Finally, Samsung has announced that they will be pushing Android 2.3 Gingerbread out to all Galaxy S devices, including the Tab. The European market will get the updates first, expected "mid-May", so they should see it any day now. Unfortunately no word was given regarding Canada specifically, but they did say that it would be "gradually rolled out to other European markets, North America, Southeast Asia, the Middle East Asia, Africa, and the rest of the world according to the regional plan".

Hopefully Canadians can get all of the features and benefits of Gingerbread on the Galaxy S handsets and Tab soon! Despite the lack of clear details, we're expecting it to be available by mid-Summer at the latest, but that's just our best guess!

Samsung has recently given some information to Canadians with devices in the Galaxy S series, announcing approximate time frames for when to expect Android 2.2 Froyo. The Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant from Bell and the Captivate from Rogers will be getting the OS upgrade in mid-December, while Telus Fascinate owners should see it in early 2011. Nothing was mentioned regarding the Virgin Mobile Vibrant, but one can only assume it will be updated at the same time as the Bell model. If you own any of these 3 devices, be sure to stay tuned and we'll let you know once more details are made available!

It has certainly been a long and impatient wait for Canadians looking to get their hands on a Samsung Galaxy S Captivate through Rogers, but it seems as though the time has finally come. As of yesterday, the Captivate is officially available for $179.99 on a 3 year term, or $549.99 contract-free, though inventory is apparently limited, so it will likely sell out fast. The Captivate features a 4" (480x800) super AMOLED touch screen display, along with a 1GHz processor, 5MP camera capable of recording 720p video, and 16GB of onboard memory. Additionally, the device support Wi-Fi connectivity to help users stay connected, and apparently comes with Swype installed right out of the box. The Samsung Galaxy S Captivate ships running Android OS 2.1, though we've recently gotten word that v2.2 will be available by "early 2011" at the latest. If you're looking to pick one of these up, it's best to act quickly, as odds are it will sell out very fast - so head to your local Rogers retail outlet or call Customer Care now!

For those of you thinking about picking up a Samsung Captivate from Rogers, but aren't into contracts or have recently done an upgrade, Rogers has updated their website to include the contract-free pricing for the new Android powered device. The Captivate will come in at $549.99 for outright purchases, while customers will be able to grab it for as low as $149.99 on a 3 year term. If you're thinking about picking this one up, remember, Rogers just let us know that it will be getting the Android 2.2 Froyo update early next year, and with top-end specifications, this one is shaping up nicely.

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S Captivate from Rogers will be launching with Android 2.1 Eclair, but great news for those who intend on picking this device up - Rogers states that the Android 2.2 Froyo upgrade will be coming early next year. While no specific date was provided, they have confirmed that it will be getting the upgrade, which is certainly a relief considering other devices are being left behind (Sony Ericsson X10?). Will you be picking up a Samsung Captivate at launch? Let us know in our forum!

We let you know quite some time ago that Rogers would be launching the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate, an Android handset that features a 4" (480 x 800) Super AMOLED display, 5MP camera with 720p HD video capture, and a 1GHz processor to help power it all. Due to a number of delays, the handset is still yet to be released, though Rogers have provided an update stating:

"We anticipated launching earlier, but there has been a manufacturing delay. As a result, we expect the device will be on sale by mid-October. Pre-orders have also been pushed back, and we hope to make them available later this week."

Hopefully this won't hurt Rogers too badly, considering Bell has been offering the Galaxy S Vibrant for some time now, and Telus has the likes of the HTC Desire to lure Android-addicted Canadians to their network. With the X10 running an outdated OS, the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate will be a much-needed addition to their device line-up, so lets hope there are no more delays!

Rogers has put up a page on their site allowing those interested in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S Captivate to register to receive updates.

Running on Android 2.1 Eclair with TouchWiz 3.0 at launch, this upcoming handset has 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, and supports HSPA, Wi-FI, bluetooth, and GPS connectivity.
