As you may (or may not) know, Samsung has created a few variations of the Galaxy S mainly for the US Carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile & Verizon), although if the news coming from Smarthouse is correct, we may see a different Galaxy S variation hitting Telstra when it announces the device in the near future. Our guess is that they may use the Samsung Captivate (see pic) which is used on AT&T and supports the NextG frequency of 850MHz 3G.

In addition to this, Smarthouse are reporting that Telstra are hoping to launch their Galaxy S with Android 2.2, which is expected to become available from Samsung during September. So if you’re after the Telstra Galaxy S, you might be in for a bit of a wait. We’ll keep you posted.

Sounds like an iPhone fan. Yeah it’s looks like iPhone 3GS. But 10 times better than iPhone 3GS. And iPhone 3G or iPhone 4 still can’t make 3G video calls.. 😉

I wouldn’t believe a word smart house publish, the owner and author of all of the websites and publications is a very well know liar and copyright artist so take what ever you read from there sites and mags with a very small grain of salt. They tend to copy every other major news outlet articles (feel free to reference any article they print/write) or simply make it up! telstra will make there own announcement soon re galaxy s.

I’d get my hopes up, but Telstra will probably price this prohibitively expensive or on a plan with eleventy billion dollars worth of calls and 1 bit of data

I’ve been hoping all along that Telstra would end up with the AT&T version – definitely prefer it to the iPhone-clone design of the optus version
