Samsung Galaxy S
The phone that started it all. The Samsung Galaxy S was first introduced as a single model--the i9000, to be exact--at CTIA 2010 and later shipped to more than 100 wireless providers worldwide. As is usually the case, we had to wait a bit here in the States but after a bit of teasing, Samsung finally launched the smartphone in the U.S. in the summer of 2010 with all four major carriers, as well as several regional providers.
Though the models differed slightly in design, content, and name, they all had the same impressive features--1GHz Hummingbird processor, Super AMOLED touch screen, Android 2.1. It was the smartphone that started it all for Samsung.

OK, we know this isn't officially part of the Galaxy line, but with the introduction of the Galaxy Nexus, we thought it should be an honorary member. The pure Google experience phone (stock Gingerbread) offered a contour design with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display. Other features include a 5-megapixel camera, 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 16GB of internal memory, and NFC support.
The Nexus S launched with T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint. However, the Sprint version is the only one to take advantage of the NFC chip with support for Google Wallet.

Now, we have the newest kid on the block, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It's the first smartphone to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which includes a new font type called Roboto, an enhanced notification tray, more camera tools, facial tracking, and more.
The Galaxy Nexus also ups the ante with a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD touch screen and comes equipped with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture, a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera, and 16GB of internal storage.
The Galaxy Nexus will be available November but pricing and release date were not announced at this time.
