    Doubtful...although it'd be great if they strung us along for Froyo and surprised us with Gingerbread.

    Well, it does happen all the time. The Eris skipped 1.6 and 2.0 to go straight to 2.1. The Nexus S already has 2.3 and as they said Samsung has been playing around with Gingerbread for a little while now. On top of everything else the Nexus S has just about the same specs, so it is possible.

    Well Samsung phones may be in line to receive it first, but by the time Verizon is done holding it up (i.e. testing and bloating it) we'll still get it behind HTC and Motorola.

    I'm frustrated that I can't even get the maintenance update that fixes GPS unless I root. And I can't root because of work issues.

    Note the tweet said "Galaxy S phones", not "all Galaxy S phones".

    I wouldn't be surprised if the GSM models got it fairly quickly -- but they'll have unofficial versions really soon anyway.

    Fascinate? Verizon still hasn't released DJ05!

    It could all be lumped into one big update with Gingerbread. I'm going to start bugging the insiders I know about that starting tomorrow and see if anyone can tell me anything either way.

    Please do, would be nice to know one way or another.

    I know not to get my hopes up, would be nice for 2.3, but I would take 2.2. :)

    I will do what I can. Verizon is being very tight lipped on everything these days though.

    Gosh, those were the days...waiting and speculating about 2.0 or 2.1 being released and the flaming that went on in the Eris forum was sad :p
