Samsung's flagship Android-based Galaxy S mobile phone is now available for purchase in the UK via wireless carrier T-Mobile too. The handset already proved to be very popular and highly successful in a series of markets around the world, and chances are that it would prove just the same on T-Mobile's airwaves, especially with the carrier having it available for free on a £35 a month plan.
