    Well the thing is we have to get 2.2 first. Lol. I'm sure all of the new smartphones coming out will be 4g.

    Based on Samsungs lack of interest in keeping their phones equipped with the latest version of Android, I would agree with you. However, the Fascinate is certainly capable of running gingerbread so you never know

    Cloud, you are being sarcastic correct? 2.3 might as well 4.0 because it will never be on the fascinate. At least via Samsung. Anyway, there is the Samsung Stealth that will be on Verizon.

    I'd take this phone with 2.2 : )

    The best Android device of the year. Right next to the LG Optimus 3D.

    I want this handset.....BAD!

    It'll come to VZW, just got to wait for them to bloat the crap out of it. Stock 2.2...you bet I would get it as well.

    As mentioned though, once this is released, kiss all updates for fascinate good-bye (not that its getting any anyways..)

    Not to mention, the Stealth is coming. Which is a minor update to the fascinate (but with 4G) might diminish chances of us VZW users getting a galaxy s 2 for quite a while....

    Well, those r pretty strong words about the fascinate never seeing gingerbread, seeing how I was told by 4 different samsung reps that if froyo couldnt get the bugs worked out they would be making the jump to gingerbread. Some people think that no phone is better than theirs huh, gees

    Verizon will or if not already abandon the Fascinate for the 4g phones. It will probably see some sort of 2.2 official release but it ends there unfortunately.

    You may add this one to the list HTC Pyramid-The QHD Android Smartphone unveiled | Gadgets Reviews
    But seeing how bad HTC is on battery life probably S2 will still be better .

    You shouldn't believe everything reps tell you.

    The reason I believe in what reps at samsung say is because when I first heard of the rumor on 2.2 coming for my phone in february they said it wasn't true, and guess what, it wasn't. They also were the ones that told me of the updates that were pushed to the fascinate phones recently and thats how I knew they were coming before verizon even sent them out. It's not that I don't need to believe what I'm told, others need to be patient and be thankful they have a phone to start with, there are lots of people out there that can't afford phones like the ones you, I and others on these forums have.

    Most people knew about those updates before they were pushed out so that's not really anything special. If someone had asked me if the update for the Fascinate was going to be out in February I also would have said no just from going on past history. You should ask them when the next update is coming and the whether it will be Froyo or Gingerbread and see what they say. As for being patient and thankful, yes I'm thankful I have a phone but I can afford whatever phone I want so having one isn't too big of a deal. I think people have been patient enough waiting for the update to be honest. That update should have been out a while ago.
