    So I was watching Attack of the Show on G4 and they happened to do a review on the Captivate, which happened to blow the doors off of the X in whichever app they were opening.

    BUT I DIGRESS!


    Anyways they said Samsung is hoping to get 2.2 to all the Galaxy S phones by the end of September.


    Not sure how reliable that is, but it's info none the less!

    Key word there is hoping. They were hoping for this summer, then hoping for September. Im hoping its sooner than later. AOTS is not ironclad but its something

    It would be nice, but after seeing so many dates for Froyo 2.2 for my Incredible not happen I'm not sure I have much hope that it will - However I'm thinking 2.2 on the SF should provide a nice improvement.

    When I talked to tech support last Friday he stated that it should be with in a few weeks. He had it the phone next to him loaded with Froyo and the latest test release has been working great. He said that the first release made the Fascinate keept crashing. So i hope its true.

    Hope is a funny thing. Someone anyone says a few weeks and we get excited. As the DX guys though, they've been hearing a few weeks since the July launch. Im not saying it is or isnt true. Im just not getting hope too high

    Yeah but the froyo on the X kept having issues so as long as they dont have any issues with the fascinate then it should not take nearly as long

    Well we really can only hope. Since we don't have concrete info. But updates are always like that. I don't think we will be getting 3.0 though.... ;-)

    I don't think there is any chance of it happening. If they were going to have 2.2 ready that soon after release they would have just waited to release the phone.

    I hope you're wrong about 3.0. This phone certainly meets the hardware requirements for it.

    Hey! Did MW start this?!? Burn Notice placed his mark real good in the Incredible forum. The thread was very loooong.

    VZW has to apply their "magic" to the rom, so I would expect Europe to be end of month, and a complete roll-out for US devices by December. My guess is the VZW version will be last (December). BING! (November has a shot, but please do not hold breath for October).

    Please consider that just a few months from now, even fancier devices will be their focus and VZW already positioned the Fascinate (unfairly) as a feature phone to replace the Eris. This device is not a priority... Heck none really are at this point, but the X will get 2.2 in the next few weeks, but Motorola is pushing that effort- not VZW.

    Like HTC, Samsung leaves the update pushing to the carriers (this is not good).

    Summary of push effort

    HTC = weak
    VZW = weak
    Tmo= weak
    Sprint = strong
    Moto = strong
    Samsung = weak
    At&t = who is kidding who? WEAK!

    Hmmm. Looks like the ultimate device for updates would be a Motorola device on Sprint ;)

    Shame about their network coverage though.
