The Samsung Vibrant was officially announced back on June 28th, which was not all that long ago. And at the time it was given a release date of July 21st and an on-contract price tag of $199.
Well, flash forward till today and it looks like one of those two bits of information may be changing. Unfortunately its not the price as that is expected to remain at $199, but we do have some good news for anyone anxious to get their hands on the Vibrant.
According to the latest internet chatter, which is really just a nice way to say rumor, T-Mobile is going to be pushing up the release date by about a week — to July 15th.
Unfortunately this has yet to be officially confirmed. But then again, given we have at least one other major Android release coming on the 15th it may be a good decision to move it up and share some of that spotlight.
With that, there is some evidence in the form of a leaked T-Mobile image. Bottom line, it looks like the 15th will be the release date for the Samsung Vibrant on T-Mobile.
