I was more interested in another feature called S Beam, which lets users quickly transfer photos, videos and documents from one phone to another. Samsung says a 1GB movie file can be moved in about three minutes.
I remember when Palm PDAs could do that same trick using RF beams. You could also pick up documents, like meeting agenda, from a central transmitter in a kiosk.
Samsung's feature sounds promising, but one early review says it will only work with other Galaxy phone. That would be a big disappointment.
Verizon and AT&T are both accepting pre-orders on their websites. Prices start at $199 with a contract.
