Samsung Galaxy S is the first Wi-Fi Direct certified phone

4 November, 2010

The Samsung I9000 Galaxy S can add another highlight to its connectivity spec list - Wi-Fi Direct. Wi-Fi Direct is a very new technology and the Galaxy S is among the first devices to support it - and certainly the first phone in the short list.

If you've missed our post on Wi-Fi Direct, it's a technology that aims to remove the need for a router, so that you can connect two devices directly and enjoy the fast transfer speeds of Wi-Fi b/g/n (the Samsung Galaxy S supports the three) (with some WPA2 security for a good measure).

The great thing about Wi-Fi Direct is that only one of the devices needs to be Direct-enabled for the connection to work.

Enabling Direct on already available devices is possible too - via a software update. So, Samsung I9000 Galaxy S owners will be able to use Wi-Fi Direct with their current hardware.

At this point it's not clear how (and when) the Galaxy S will receive the update - firmware update or an app. Either way, we're modders will sure be quick to port it to other phones.
