T-Mobile’s Latest Android-Powered Device Offers Exclusive Entertainment Experience, Including James Cameron’s Avatar In a Slim Smartphone Package

BELLEVUE, Wash. and DALLAS — June 28, 2010 — T-Mobile USA, Inc. and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), the No. 1 mobile phone provider in the U.S.1, today announced the Samsung Vibrant, a Samsung Galaxy S device available from T-Mobile.
Through pre-installed applications and pre-loaded content, the Samsung Vibrant’s comprehensive multimedia capabilities combine all your entertainment and communication needs into one device — it’s a television, bookshelf, radio, movie library, gaming system, and of course, a smartphone. The Vibrant comes fully loaded with exclusive entertainment features including “James Cameron’s Avatar” on an included 2GB external memory card and an exclusive collector’s edition of a popular game. The Vibrant also brings the Amazon Kindle for Android application with access to more than 600,000 books, MobiTV with live and on-demand TV, and much more.
The Vibrant’s 4-inch Super AMOLED touch screen display gives customers a vivid, sharp color HD-like viewing experience, whether consumers choose to play a game, watch a movie or read an e-book while on the go. Featuring a slim and sleek design, the Vibrant is one of the most portable and accessible mobile entertainment devices available to U.S. consumers. The speedy Samsung 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird Application Processor and six-axis sensor are optimized for media and gaming, which gives consumers a seamless, immersive experience while reading, watching and playing. The Vibrant is also the latest smartphone in T-Mobile’s lineup that can benefit from enhanced speeds in locations with T-Mobile’s super-fast HSPA+ network.2
“By combining best-selling, award-winning content and amazing hardware that brings that content to life, T-Mobile continues to deliver on its commitment to bring innovative mobile entertainment experiences to consumers’ fingertips,” said Paul Cole, vice president, devices and accessories, T-Mobile USA. “We are proud to introduce the Samsung Vibrant as the latest addition to our growing lineup of Android-powered devices.”
The Samsung Vibrant contains all of the premium core features that the Galaxy S portfolio offers to consumers, including an industry leading display and powerful processor. The Galaxy S devices make the smartphone brilliant,” said Omar Khan, chief strategy officer for Samsung Mobile. “When you combine the Vibrant’s incredible hardware with preloaded content like ”Avatar,” along with thousands of applications available on the Android Market, the entertainment and customization possibilities are endless.”
‘“James Cameron’s Avatar” is in many ways the most innovative film ever produced, and in working with Samsung and T-Mobile we are now able to offer this eye-catching experience to viewers in a new and dynamic environment on the Samsung Vibrant,’ said Peter Levinsohn, president of new media and digital distribution for 20th Century FOX Film Company.
The multimedia experience that makes the Samsung Vibrant a great option for entertainment enthusiasts includes the following:
- 20th Century Fox’s “James Cameron’s Avatar,” full-screen movie pre-loaded on the Samsung Vibrant, takes consumers back to Pandora, the fictional world created by James Cameron, in the highest-grossing film in history.
- Amazon Kindle for Android application provides direct access to more than 600,000 books, including a vast majority of The New York Times Best Sellers and New Releases. Before consumers purchase a book, they can read the first chapter for free. They also can read  reviews and recommendations from Amazon.com and its customers. With Kindle for Android, customers can sync their reading with their other Kindle devices so they never lose their place or are without their reading.

Favorite channels such as Bravo, Disney Channel, ESPN, NBC and more are available for Samsung Vibrant consumers to watch at home or away. Plus, when Vibrant consumers subscribe to MobiTV, their first 30 days of service are free.3
- Slacker Radio mobile application comes pre-loaded on the Samsung Vibrant, allowing anyone to listen to free personalized radio. Slacker offers more than 120 genre stations and the ability to create your own. With millions of songs from thousands of artists, Slacker is the best way to discover new artists and hear your favorite music.

    does ANYONE know if the vibrant has a LED notification????

  • Mac

    Why TMobile , are you asleep at the wheel ? Why did you not get the desire from Tmobile UK , look at the evo ! Sell the phone like that please ! fire who is in charge and get someone who has some sort of intelligence Thanks very much for reading …

  • RyN

    as you all may know Tmobile customers joined Tmobile because of their great family plan and is affordable…so in my opinion Tmobile customers are not that rich…lol.just my thought. If Tmobile decide to add ffc and LED flash which everyone is bitching about, it’ll probably cost another $100 or so…plus i think that super amoled is very expensive… so in the end it’ll probably bring out a great total of $300-$400 with 2 yrs contract. Some of you might can afford it but not all… the main goal of Tmobile is that they wants the majority of their customers or new customers can afford it…so those that said they’re gonna leave tmobile, unless they’re will to pay extra monthly otherwise they’ll be back..just for a stupid phone people will to spend more money monthly?…i don’t think it’s worth it…better phones comes out every year, you can’t keep up with them…now that being said, i think another reason why Tmo decided not to add flash or ffc is because they want to keep the phone as thin as possible and not many people are using or need to use ffc since it require wifi. ffc is still new so they don’t want to gamble with it cuz they don’t know how well it’ll work…maybe another 2 years or so every phone will have ffc…as for right now, this phone has everything that average cell phone users would wants. I can’t wait to get this phone and use it for 2 yrs, and hopefully in two years Tmobile will have a phone that will satisfy everyone…but let face it you can’t satisfy everybody…even iphone4 have complains…you can’t keep up with technology, so just get what you can afford and stop complaining

    i thought it would be cool having a 5″ screen but unless your gonna use blue tooth all the time its too big as a phone and not as powerful as a full tablet.

    They tend to just drive up data plan costs, just look at sprint and verzion, they jacked up rates on their plans that go with the FFC phones, because they eat up like a MB per minute when in use.

  • used ipods

    I am glad to see they are finally getting a nice phone. I am very happy with my EVO and sprint. hopefully in two years Tmobile will have a phone that will satisfy everyone…but let face it you can’t satisfy everybody…even iphone4 have complains…you can’t keep up with technology.

    This is a superphone faster processor then iphone4! If Tmobile decide to add ffc and LED flash which everyone is bitching about, it’ll probably cost another $100 or so…plus i think that super amoled is very expensive…

    The intelligence of a mobile agent is used to make dynamic decisions such as finding the next destination, optimizing the travel plan, and detecting link failures, as the agent travels around the network. Experimental results indicate an improvement in overall response time, easy delegation and flexibility.

    We put this view to the test by using publicly available data on subscriptions, price indices and churn rates. Using churn rates gave us approximate sales levels which enabled us to use standard methods to investigate the effect of network size on demands.

    Your estimates of a system of demand functions show that network effects played a significant role in the diffusion of mobile services in Germany.

    Monoclonal antibodies against T. mobile type strain cells were produced and used as capture agents on IMB. These MAb, named A4F4, were immunoglobulin M; they were specific to T. mobile and directed against lipopolysaccharides.

    This is a nice phone not saying that its not but the sprint version apart from having a keyboard it also has flash t mobile needs stop getting the low end ones and has to start stepping it up hopefully that one phone/ project emerald is top of the line.

  • furreal friends

    Sprint just raped this announcement.
    They announced their Samsung Galaxy S phone
    Its called the Sprint Epic 4G!!
    It is the Galaxy S, keeping the front camera and having a slide keyboard as well!

  • furreal friends

    Don’t forget that Verizon, AT&T, AND EVEN US CELLULAR is getting the Galaxy S. It’s no longer a big deal for Tmo and it makes it even funnier that they tried to make it a big surprise announcement.

  • Info

    T. mobile was not detected in these oil field waters by classical enrichment procedures. Furthermore, extraction with antibody-coated IMB allowed pure strains to be isolated directly from primary enrichment cultures without prior time-consuming subculturing and consecutive transfers to selective media.

    The microcosm system described here would thus appear to be a valid model of aquatic sediments for up to 4 weeks; the actual period would depend on the sediment source and incubation temperature.
