I guess it’s better late then never, especially if someone out there hasn’t seen this deal yet. T-Mobile is offering their Samsung Galaxy S phone — the Samsung Vibrant — for $99 on a 2-year contract. That is half the price of AT&T’s Captivate and $150 less than Sprint’s Epic 4G.
If you are sitting there thinking that this deal is kind of crazy, then you are thinking the right thing. Remember, the Galaxy S line has 4″ Super AMOLED screens, 1Ghz Snapdragon processors, and Android 2.1 on board. Of course there is the “love-it or hate-it” Samsung TouchWiz UI you may have to deal with, but from early reports it seems that it isn’t too bad.
So, if you have been on the fence waiting for a good deal at T-Mo today may just be your day, or at least the next 5 hours and 10 minutes. Let us know if you were one of the lucky ones that got to snag one of these. Or you could just wait to see what else T-Mo is bringing to the table with their newest superphone.
