    I'm glad they didnt go with the Snapdragon. It sucks some phones in other countries and other carriers have the Snapdragon. Just based on the past year and up til now....it seems to come up short against the Hummingbird, OMAP and Exynos. Probably Tegra 2 too.

    Something very interesting with Touchwiz...they said they removed the backgrounds on some icons.

    Funny I mentioned this when the lawsuits started, saying part of an easy fix is removing the backgrounds from icons ...Is this something new for the US version or has this been like this since the GS2 launched?

    He might be talking about Canada since we know that Verizon is not getting the Device.

    Yea thats what I figured. The event itself was less than impressive, I expected more although the phone does look nice.
