Samsung Galaxy S press event in NYC

 Skylight West was the place to be yesterday evening. Complete with drinks, Galaxy S devices of all shapes and sizes, and B.O.B., it was a neat little place in Hell's Kitchen. During the event, all I could think about was "Wow, Samsung accomplished the four phones on four carriers concept." Each device is similar (and based on the same platform), but they're unique enough to give each carrier a different flavor of the Galaxy S line. Want a QWERTY keyboard? Epic 4G. Like Avatar and want it pre-installed on your device? Vibrant. Cool tapered design your thing? Captivate. Want Mobile Hotspot and V CAST services? Fascinate.
  From a design perspective, Verizon's is (in my opinion) the most boring of the bunch. In addition to the 1 GHz Hummingbird processor, 4.0-inch Super AMOLED display, and Android 2.1 that the others offer, the Fascinate comes with VZ Navigator, V CAST for Music, V CAST Song ID, and Mobile Hotspot.
  My favorite in the design department. Sporting beveled edges, the Captivate is sleek and offers a nice carbon fiber battery door. Services include AT&T Navigator, MobiTV, and other AT&T-branded goodies. No word just yet as to whether the Captivate will allow non-Android Market apps or not, but it's nice to see a high-end Android device on the way.
