Who Does YouTube's Viewership say the preferred carrier for Android Phones?

If  the new Samsung Galaxy S series Phonescoop coverage online is any indication of the interest in carriers, since most of the phones are very similar (except for the Samsung Epic 4g, given that it is the only one with a slide out keyboard), there are some surprises in terms of which carrier's phone is Vibrant enough to Facinate and Captivate the peoples' Instinct to buy their own network in Epic proportions. Hey, that was pretty good, except for the Captivate!  The four major US Carriers:  AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon [in alphabetical order; just thought I'd show my impartiality (wink)] will each carry a version of Samsung's Galaxy S.

Here's a screenshot of Phonescoop's channel:

CellPhonius chose Phonescoop's YouTube Channel because they uploaded the review on the same date, as the reviews were all done one after the other.

So, the carriers ranked:

#1 T-Mobile - Vibrant     39,951 Views
#2 Sprint-      Epic 4G   21,542 Views
#3 AT&T-       Captivate 15,167 Views
#4 Verizon-    Fascinate 11,083 Views

Whether the Galaxy S's variations are what is driving the potential consumers' to navigate to a particular carrier is not clear.  What is interesting, however, is to find the "unlikeliest" suspect near the top of the list while the iPhone's current network, which in the past was the most powerful network of all, is further down the list.

What do you think?  Is it the phone or the network that is attracting the most interest?
