By the time it comes out our phones will be obsolete, just look how long samsung is taking with froyo, unacceptable imo for such a high end phone.

I don't like how they don't cite their source, as in a link. I'd rather read the actual twitter and surmise for myself what samsung meant. Even if they explicitly stated all galaxy s makes and models for all countries, I would not believe it unless samsung U.S. said it. Even a statement like "All galaxy S phones will receive 2.3" is not clear enough, it could just be referring to the international version.

Nowhere in their does it say the US is getting it, all it says is that the Galaxy S is spread throughout the 4 major US cell phone carriers. That seems like irrelevant/misleading information to me.

The original twitter source is from Samsung India.

Samsung Galaxy S will get Android 2.3 Gingerbread eventually Unwired View

It doesn't even mention US in the tweets. So people are just making stuff up about which countries are getting Gingerbread and when.

I agree, no reputable sources stated in the article, thus it leads me to believe it is going off the basis of that premature tweet from Samsung India. As of yesterday, Samsung has still not said anything about gingerbread being released. Although I do hope that gingerbread does come out for the captivate, the title of this thread is quite misleading.

Considering all the rumors about FroYo, I think Samsung is keeping their mouth shut.

I'm betting gingerbread isn't released for galaxy s phones until early fall 2011. By then android 3.5 will be out. Honeycomb will probably be out by Q1 or Q2 2011.

Our phones won't exactly be obsolete. We can get upgrades after 20 months correct? For me that would mean I could get an upgrade at about April 2012 so i would probably get about 6 months out of gingerbread.

I think the exact opposite I'm betting froyo gets skipped and within the next two months all galaxy S get gingerbread just like the nexus S

Go to Android Advices. There is a complete package of Generbread 2.3.3 XXJVK and complere instructions.
I have installed XXJVK on my Samsung I 9000 and I have got following advantages:
1. The phone has become faster.
2 Typing and text editing has become better
3. GPS has improved and i am able to get lock in few seconds
4. Yet to determine battery performance

Though this is not an official version, but its very stable. Its for free too!

i was one of the supposedly lucky ones in canada who got froyo a couple mths ago....ahead of the US and others and i have had more problems with different programs since this update than before....so i dont get the huge anticipation for gingerbread...
aside from more crashes and lockups and swype issues etc..i got with froyo...i dont even see what all the fuss was about? i dont seem to do anything different with my phone now?
it just drains the battery faster and runs worse...so i can wait for whatever this ginger brings.........

With the browser open push the menu soft key, then more, next settings, next plugins select on demand. That really helped battey life and killed some lag I was experiencing hope it helps.

Ok...details is everything when dealing with what samsung says. This is coming from a Finnish site and really doesn't say anything about the US market. Looking back at samsung's past track record I wouldn't hold my breath, I am just thankful enough to get 2.2 out of them.

Yeah once again there's no point in getting excited like anything announced for the international I9000 Galaxy S has any bearing on the USA Captivate (I897). While of interest to users of hacked ROMs it's really of no value to normal users.

The only thing that heartens me is that if Samsung is gonna give Gingerbread to the international Galaxy S phones, then I think we have a reasonable chance of getting it here, too. I'm hopin', at least.

Got to love the pessimism on this site. Boo hoo hoo. I especially loved the "obsolete" comment. Newsflash, this phone won't even be a year old, by the time you more than likely get Gingerbread.

Supposedly the HTC and the fAilTRIX were supposed to make this phone obsolete. Of course, not by any stretch of the imagination, did that come true. In fact, the fAilTRIX is such a big hit, they created a completely separate sub-forum, for complaints... just so the average browsing folk don't see what a POS it is.

Sure, it won't be the latest tech in a year... but it will most certainly be a viable and useful smartphone. Heck, how many people are still carrying around the original iPhone... and its how old now?

You are absolutely 100% correct.

There's no way this phone will be obsolete.

Oh sure the manufacturers and carriers always push the "latest" but I can tell you in no uncertain terms that after a little work optimizing my Captivate, it's been fast, smooth, reliable and a lot of fun to use.

Plus as you can see I have lots of other Android phones. I just so happens that the Captivate has the Super AMOLED display which is stunning and one of the reasons this phone is amongst my favorites.

Kudos' ! Again we have an accurate report of the state of this version.

I'm on day two with my new "Pure Google / Android / Samsung Nexus S". It was a full $600 bought outright and worth every penny.

Now that I have the pleasure of the Gingerbread experience it just causes me to be even more enthused about Android.

That and having a phone that has not been touched by any carrier, is fully unlocked and rooted, makes for a stellar experience.

Although I had a Nexus One way back when, of course the Android OS was not as developed as it is now. This experience has solidified my thoughts about never going back to a carrier molested Android phone ever again.

The pure one on one connection to Google and the Android developers is the best one can get with this platform.

what does gingerbread really bring except for the screen off animation and the glow when you scroll to the bottom of a screen

Hopefully for the Galaxy S, it will get rid of the crawling Samsung's RFS filesystem. That alone will fix most of the lag.

Bluetooth voice dialing is one feature I would love to have on my stock captivate.

it just drains the battery faster and runs worse...so i can wait for whatever this ginger brings.........
You might want to do that update to 2.2 again ..... its a somewhat convoluted process and maybe you missed a step. I have seen big improvements in battery life and GPS with 2.2. .... Lag might be a little bit worse though.

I also hesitate about "ginger" as well .... i think i will just monitor this forum after its available and see how it goes. I am unrooted and plan to stay that way ..... for now.

With many states passing hands free laws while driving including California where I live it is extremely frustrating and inexcusable that the Captivate even with Froyo can't do voice dialing.

I talked to Parrot today. They are the only maker of consumer vehicle integrated bluetooth systems I can find. They said their systems will not work with Samsung Galaxy S phones. Something to do with the software. So who is to blame? Is it the base software and Google's fault? Or did Samsung or AT&T add something to the software that thwarts the Parrot system. It works fine with other Android phones according to Parrot.

I've considered on and off flashing a custom rom just so I could get voice dialing. So far I haven't been annoyed enough to try it, but sometimes I wonder what's holding me back.
