Android based smart phone : Samsung Galaxy S

The Samsung Bloggers’ Meet today was an awesome experience. I went for the event partly to catch up with ex-colleagues and old friends from Delhi – Gaurav Mishra and Honey Singh.

I am impressed with Samsung’s Galaxy S smart phone based on Android OS 2.1. it sure has some cool features and designed for 24/7 generation with host of connectivity options like GPRS, 3G, WiFi and Bluetooth.

I found the mobile to be quite light weight but packing quite a punch. Though there were questions about not including flash for the camera, picture quality was acceptable in even low light. The phone can be used as video camera as well. Another cool feature was ability to connect to a TV through HDMI? interface so you can play games on larger screen or view your photos and videos on large screen.

The in-build flash storage of just 16GB looks small for 4th generation Smart Phones, you can add upto 64 GB of external storage using SD cards.

With 1 GHz CPU speed, it sure has lot of computing power at it’s disposal and makes UI quite responsive even when multiple applications are open at the same time.

The phone is prized at 30K plus that can be a challenge for the company to get it accepted in mass market. I will surely look to buy this or future device when the prizes falls to bellow 20K.

In any case I am looking forward to buy an Android based smart phone as I am getting tired of my iPhone.

        I bought it from US for approx 25K.
        “Real” mobile apps are a problem. But I think meego will address that. I am sure there will be many apps soon 🙂
        Also maemo is based on debian so you can get all the debian goodies like apache, mysql, php etc 😉 You can also dual boot it with Android so get the apps you want from there 😉
