However, this Android beast is delayed in US and the rest of the world. Samsung announced that I9000 Galaxy S will be available in other markets later this year.
The Samsung I9000 Galaxy S, is the second handset after Samsung S8500 Wave to have a Super AMOLED screen and the first Android handset to have it. The Super AMOLED screens have better display under sunlight unlike AMOLED screens.
