    I'm sure they have a date that corresponds with their marketing campaign....

    The announcement is coming soon, maybe Samsung is holding off until the GPS issues have been resolved with the Vibrant and Captivate.

    A petition to force a company to release a product before their planned marketing campaign and eventual release is 100% pointless, I'm sorry to say.

    Its not designed to force anyone to do anything. I would say that VZW thinks Moto phones will be bigger sellers. The petition is to let them know there are people waiting for the SGS.

    I think the petition is silly too. I bet we are waiting for Microsoft to finish the Bing app for android that the Fascinate is supposed to ship with. I think I read a about 3 weeks ago that that it would be released about six weeks later.

    I'd rather they fix the GPS issues. Anyone with any sense will promptly root and strip Bing from the phone.

    Is this a serious post? When they are ready to announce it they will let you know.

    Noooo!!!

    Bing on Android!!!??? What is the world coming to? Why can't these greedy phone mfrs. and carriers just give us STOCK ANDROID? The reason I'm choosing Android for my next platform is to tie in seamlessly to my existing GOOGLE services! Keep that Microsoft trash off my phone!

    Well, release is looking like mid-Oct now. Personally I think there is nothing silly about the petition. The delay in release is silly.

    No bloatware!

    I'd like to add to this petition that Verizon/Samsung does NOT put any bloatware/crapware on it when they release it! Or at least make all of them removable.

    What gives you this idea?

    All current signs point to mid-september release.

    Link? All I seen was a page on Phone arena about some "Source" claiming a roadmap. I haven't seen anything solid.

    It's just a widget man. You can put the stock google widget in place of it. Totally not a biggie.

    Guys, if you haven't noticed there's a google search widget in the market now.. Plus we can download google maps with navigation. Also, since the galaxy s devices are easily rootable we can root and delete the bloatware!! :D
