I won't buy a Galaxy S i9000 unless it already has been upgraded to Froyo. In addition to the i9000, the i9000T should have 1900 (850, 1900, 2100). i9000 is 900, 1900, and 2100.
Captivate should be 850, 1900 and 2100. Vibrants are 900, 1700 and 2100.
The Nexus One is easier to do upgrades with. It just comes over the air. With the Galaxy S you need to connect to Samsung Kies on the PC. Having said that, the upgrades on the Nexus One seems to have the least problems.
The advantages of the Galaxy S is having more internal phone memory, better camera, more accurate touch screen, a slightly better battery life, and a bigger and more vivid screen.
The advantages of the Nexus One is a much more solid and sleeker body, a pointer trackball that can pulse with different colors (coolness factor), direct upgrades from Google, probably better GPS.
Of these factors, the upgrades are the most important though,which is why I may favor the Nexus One here..
