Got a little bit more press release goodness for you. I just posted about the reviews that Doug Simmons and Kristofer Brozio have done and how Amazon is running a great deal on the Captivate for $0.01. So I thought I would share this for all you who are getting one, or all of you on the fence. The Samsung Galaxy S has been a huge hit and it is hard to remember a device that has received so much carrier support. We even got a taste of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the 7 inch screen tablet coming soon. So does Samsung got it going on with some Android goodness or what? Here is the Press Release:
Now available in the United States, Europe and Asia, the Galaxy S has a large 4-inch super AMOLED display, which delivers an unrivaled screen quality for a better viewing experience. Powered by a 1GHz processor, the Galaxy S dazzles with amazing 3-D graphics, faster upload and download times, and a rich multimedia and gaming experience. As an Android-powered device, the Galaxy S also provides access to the more than 70,000 applications from Android Market.
To enjoy DivX video on the Galaxy S, consumers can load their video libraries of both standard definition and HD 720p movies in the DivX format on the internal and external memory (expandable to 32GB) and then watch their collections anywhere they choose. In addition, the Galaxy S can connect directly to other DivX Certified devices, such as HDTVs, turning it into a powerful mobile set-top box in the living room. The Galaxy S will also support the secure playback of major Hollywood titles in the DivX format from leading studios.
"The Galaxy S has exploded in popularity, and we are very excited to join Samsung in promoting its new DivX HD capabilities," said Kevin Hell, Chief Executive Officer, DivX, Inc.
