The press release mentions that 100 operators across the globe have selected the smartphone due to it being a key device.

“The Android-powered Samsung Galaxy S will set a new standard for smartphones, and the excitement we’ve seen from operators and retailers for this device is testament to that,” said JK Shin, president and head of mobile communications business. “The Samsung Galaxy S is the perfect device for people in all corners of the world who want that extra edge; to be more effective, productive, better connected, and in tune with their smart life both personal and professional all in a very easy and simple way. We’re extremely confident that this device is going to be very successful in every market.”
