Samsung followed in Research In Motion's successful footsteps by launching what is more or less the same phone on each of the four major U.S. wireless networks.
The phone is Samsung's Galaxy S class, and The Vibrant is T-Mobile's version. AT&T's Samsung Captivate can be had for about the same price with a new two-year contract, but without a new contract, it will set you back $100 more than the Vibrant. Sprint's Epic, the 4G version of the phone, can't be bought for less than $200, however. Verizon's Fascinate version hasn't yet gone to market.
With similar capabilities to other top-of-the-line Android peers, the Vibrant is bargain at $40 with a new contract. Without one, prepare to shell out $400.
