You really can't complain when you wake up to exciting news about the Samsung Galaxy S.  This morning, Samsung model SGH-T959 cleared the FCC with 850/1900 GSM/GPRS/EDGE and AWS/1900 WCDMA/HSPA frequency bands.  What does this mean?  Well, it's interesting actually.  It looks like this particular phone (as opposed to the GT-I9000 which cleared FCC for AT&T specifically) should work on both T-Mobile as well as AT&T's 3G bands, not to mention all of the Canadian carriers.  If I'm right, then perhaps Samsung truly is both brilliant and bold, killing the GSM bird with a single stone.  It would certainly make launching a phone in 110 countries, simultaneously, much easier.  The Samsung Galaxy S, was originally given the model number GT-I9000, however, thanks to the Bluetooth SIG, the SGH-T959 - which received Bluetooth certification - was revealed to have near-identical specs, specifically in the description of the phone (4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, TouchWiz 3.0, etc.). 

In any case, Samsung has been teasing this phone by sending flying saucers that say "Samsung Galaxy S Landing Soon" on the box, to several tech journalists.  There's also a Samsung launch event going on Tuesday, June 29 in New York City where Samsung Mobile intends to show off "the next generation in Android smart phones."  Today we are officially two weeks away from that event, and I'm definitely counting the days.  Anyone else getting excited?!
