    Yeah I was surprised too. Especially the last wrap up section where they said it is probably the best smartphone Period. The anticipation is killing me. I can see myself actually leaving Verizon to whoever the first US carrier is to get it.

    I'm pretty sure Verizon will get it. It's just a question of when. I asked a Verizon employee about it today when I got my thunderbolt and he said they expect to have it between Q3 and Q4. However he could have been lying but I wanna get my hands on one, it looks gorgeous.

    SGII is a nice device, only if samsung would get their act together and keep the phones up to date. They do that and they have a winner.

    Wow I have a buddy who has one. He likes it a lot, didn't know they had that problem. Kinda feels like my Droid Eris did. Got an update when I bought it but after that nothing.

    This phone looks amazing. I just wish THIS phone would get released in the states.

    I hope it doesn't get changed for worse when it's released in the US like the first GS.

    Don't worry, they will add all their usual crap. Just like they do to all the other phones.

    thx 4 posting those vid's, but the whole Samsung update thing is kinda messed.

    I look at it this way: Samsung has supported their top-tier phones (Galaxy S update 2 Froyo Nov 2010 as you can see here), but Verizon has delayed those updates over here. So I have no reason to believe they wouldn't support the GS2 similarly, so -- if the phone is rooted & the dev community gets behind it -- we'll get updates away from the provider anyway, right?
