T-Mobile has been harping on the 4G version of the Galaxy S since last month and now we’re finally getting a definite word on the launch date. Equipped to deliver theoretical peak download speeds of around 21MB/s thanks to the ST-Ericsson modem, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G will hit T-Mobile on February 23.
