South Korea’s Galaxy S Hoppin Includes Media Dock

SK Telekom in South Korea is releasing a new Galaxy S phone — dubbed the “Hoppin,” named for the built-in entertainment system software (I know, we didn’t get it at first either.) The phone comes with a dock that will connect it to your TV and run the Hoppin software to stream movies directly from your phone, much like Samsung’s media hub that the US Galaxy S owners are familiar with. It’s being reported that movies will cost anywhere from 1,000 to 3,500 won (.89 cents to $3.12 in USD), which is a very reasonable price to download a movie, especially via cell network.

Aside from that, it’s pretty much your standard Galaxy S fare with the Hummingbird processor clocked in at 1GHz, 5 megapixel camera, wifi, etc. And unlike the US Galaxy S phones, it’s shipping with Froyo.
