We’re not sure what’s happening with the Virgin Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant launch (possibly delayed or not launching at all) but we can tell you that the Galaxy 5 will be coming exclusively to Virgin on November 12th. As for the price – the only one we know is that this will be an affordable $0.00 on the SuperTab/contract.

Specs on the low-cost Android-powered device comes with OS 2.1 (will be upgradable to 2.2 Froyo), 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen display, 600MHz processor, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 2 megapixel camera and can hold up to 16Gb with a microSD card.

(Thanks Tipster!)

    I think that pretty much seals the deal on no Vibrant with Virgin in the short-term, at least. Too bad.

    “(will be upgradable to 2.2 Froyo)”

    Ha…! Oh my…that’s a good one! You’re killing me!

    You did say this is a Samsung product didn’t you?

    bleh, Galaxy S would have been a lot more attractive.

    Add the Galaxy S in their lineup and I’m running to their store.

    This sucks 2 at once. You failed Virgin, and you just lost a potential customer. I had nothing but b-o-n-e-r-s, for the release of the Galaxy S, now I doubt they’ll get it this fall…or ever. Way to not be able to sell me an android phone this fall you loosers, you have been sold out of HTC for like what 2 months in most areas??? I’m done here, thanks for nothing.

    Seems like they’re pulling a FIDO with this one. Keeping some of the high end goodies for their parent brand only.

    Stupid marketing reasons, nothing more.
