First introduced at CTIA Spring 2010, the Samsung Galaxy S i9000 was the founding member of the Galaxy S franchise. Running Android 2.1, the i9000 features Samsung's TouchWiz 3.0 user interface and has an impressive list of features, including a 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, and a 5-megapixel camera with HD video capture. The quad-band smartphone also offers DLNA support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Samsung says an Android 2.2 update will be made available to all the Galaxy S device.

The Galaxy S i9000 is available in international markets and can be purchased unlocked in the United States. However, there also variations of the device available from North American carriers, including the Samsung Vibrant for T-Mobile, the Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint, the Samsung Captivate for AT&T, and the Samsung Fascinate for Verizon.
