Samsung Galaxy S first smartphone to be Wi-Fi Direct certified

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on November 3rd, 2010

Samsung has another first on it’s hands. The Galaxy S smartphone (GT-I9000) is now listed on the Wi-Fi Alliance’s Wi-Fi Direct certification docket. It’s the first actual device to join that esteemed crowd. Sure, any modern WiFi device is capable of becoming Direct certified (via a firmware update if there’s no hardware change in the protocol), but Samsung is the first.

We’ll keep our eyes and ears open for an actual update that brings this functionality to life. We hope other phone makers follow suit.
