Submission + - Samsung Gives Free Phones to iPhone Users (

billsayswow writes: CNN has a story from Wired about how many iPhone 4 users who voiced their complaints on Twitter were contacted by Samsung, and offered a free Samsung Galaxy S, a new phone that runs Android 2.1, if possible with their carrier and contract. Samsung themselves have confirmed that this is a legitimate offer, and not a scam.

A spokesperson for Samsung: "Recently there has been a real increase in online activity from consumers dissatisfied with some of our competitors' products. We decided to contact a cross section of individuals to offer them a free Samsung Galaxy S as a replacement, as we're confident that once people have the phone in their hands, they'll see how impressive it is for themselves."
