    Not being an electrical engineer, I've often wondered why cell phone manufacturers don't put a radio that can handle both sets of frequencies in their phones. It seems like it would be cheaper to manufacture one phone for both companies than having to manufacture two nearly identical, but marginally different phones (with the assorted, additional costs of such actions).

    Doesn't follow AT&T's numbering scheme. Maybe the same hardware under a different model number. I'm not sure what the FCC's rules are about that.

    I still maintain that the T-Mob and AT&T versions will launch simultaneously.

    I believe Engadet already posted that the ATT version or a galaxy of similar specks and ATT frequencies already was approved by the fcc in April.

    It did, but it was labeled the i9000, which is the model number of the international version. So the question remains, what is the FCC's policy about the same hardware going through under different model numbers?

    With today's announcement of the Captivate on AT&T, I've began to wonder if this won't be the "unlocked" version of the Galaxy S in the USA. That is to say, if you buy an unlocked version of the Galaxy S in the states, it will work on both AT&T and T-mobile's 3G bands. One can hope!

    howardforum showed a preview video of T959, which is exactly the same as original SGS.
