It looks like AT&T users might be in luck. Through a couple different websites it appears that the Samsung Galaxy S might be headed to AT&T. That’s not too far of a stretch, really it’s got a 50/50 chance as it stands. Samsung has previously stated the Galaxy S is headed for the US, but they failed to mention which carrier it would be supporting. It’s also previously known that the Galaxy S is a GSM/WCDMA phone, which puts it in the AT&T crowd or the T-Mobile group. However, after a few connections, it looks like AT&T might be the winner.
First, phonescoop, one of my favorite spots for finding recent FCC filings of cell phones, spotted the SGH-I897 passing through the Bluetooth special interest group and noticed that the details listed for the SGH-I897 is very similar to that of the Galaxy S. It could just be a typo, but they are both listed as a 4″ AMOLED screen, Android powered GSM phone. And, apparently, models that begin with SGH and end with a 7 are typically bound for AT&T according to AndroidandMe.com. This could be very interesting news indeed, but with the way AT&T locks down their Android phones, I’m almost a little sad if it’s true. Then again, the fine Android developers around the internet will have that thing rooted and customized soon enough.
