    I'll be really curious to see what new phones and how the new ones coming out are doing by the time I upgrade in July. The specs on the phones just keep getting better so it will be nice to see how they are all working after a few months.

    The Specs on this one look pretty good. Nice size screen and 1200MHZ.

    So instead of getting update to 2.2, half a year after everyone else I should ju:icon_evil:st buy this. No thanks Samsung is not getting my money anymore.

    @jmemory: Relax, once this comes out I'm sure it will be sporting a shiny new 2.2 so that in 2012 when the next one comes out we can all upgrade to 2.3 at that time!:biggrin:

    Don't do it.

    If you are the kind of user that frequents a site like this, you will be VERY frustrated with Samsung phones.

    And with Samsung, you don't have to worry about pesky update reminders! Because you'll be stuck on 2.3 whenever 2.4, 3.0 etc. rolls out!

    Yeah, the specs are REALLY close to what I'm looking for....Better resolution would be nice but not sure how much that really matters to me. Same with the front-facing camera.

    16 gigs internal memory + 1 gig of ram, with the dual core 1.2ghz is ideal.

    But, yeah, without an unlocked bootloader Samsung support is a deal-breaker.

    I'll be the first to laugh heartily if this is launched with 2.1.

    It says it will launch with 2.3, but does that mean they'll launch with 2.2 and upgrade to 2.3 'in the near future'? I bet it does.

    This should be a great phone. It's just too bad that it will be from Samsung. It should pack a 1GHz dual core Orion CPU. I'm just wondering if HTC's new phone that is floating around here, the "Incredible 2", will use a dual core Orion processor too becuase HTC only uses Orion processors. I need HTC to hurry up and produce a good dual core phone.

    Just a quick question from a droid 1 user.

    I rooted my droid and I could get 2.1, 2.2 and now 2.3 long before the official update's. So, If samsung doesn't provide support and has a unlocked bootloader, why can't you root it and update it yourself like I do with my droid?

    You can when someone builds a rom and finds a way to root it/flash the rom. The roms you are using are built from sorcecode so someone has to build it pretty much from the ground up

    ok but has anyone done this for like the fascinate? I tried to google "2.2 for fascinate" but I didn't find anything except people complaining.

    I don't care if I get official update's as long as I can get unofficial updates.
