    Alright. One thing I noticed is that at 8:38 in part 1 of the Face Off between the Fascinate and Incredible, when he selected a input method "Samsung Keypad" was not there. Did you turn Samsung Keypad off in the settings menu? Or is there no Samsung Keypad on the phone for some odd reason?

    I am asking this because I loved the keyboard for the Samsung Captivate when I played around with it. I don't like the Android standard keyboard and I am not really a fan of Swype. I am really not sure why this would be the only Galaxy S phone that doesn't have the Samsung keypad that the rest have.

    Ok, I just took a look at the User Manual for the Fascinate. According to that, the only two input methods that are on the phone are Swype and Android Keyboard.

    That is extremely stupid. There had better be some way that I can get the Samsung Keypad on this phone.

    Droid X multi-touch
    Swype with TTS mic

    as much as i have been wanting this phone it is dumb how every version of it is broken in some way

    Fascinate... no google... cant use bing for the direct voice search navigation... no samsung keyboard

    Captivate/Vibrant = broken GPS


    I don't get it. This phone is newer than the incredible and cant even do something simple that the incredible can do such as voice nav

    A phone can play videos and games better all day long but if it doesnt do the necessities better what good are the games and videos?


    Such a nice looking piece of hardware, great screen, fast, etc... why do this? I know rooting is an option, but what about for people who just want to buy their phone and want it to work. One of the things ive liked about android was this voice search navigation... this is going to be my first android phone, and basically i won't even be able to use it without rooting the phone from the looks of it, while the vibrant and captivate alternatives will... it doesnt make any sense

    I just don't understand it. Every other Galaxy S phone has it. Why not the Fascinate? And its not like its some extra feature. Its the freaking standard Samsung keyboard....

    Well it will work when you buy it. One its a phone if you want gps then go buy a gps this a phone and people are making to much out of it because now it wont do voice nav boo hoo hoo. Geeze you can still use google maps and if you dont want to root or leave it how it is then wait for something else to come out

    The first two videos are so terribly executed. The guy not being able to read, the light washing out the screens, the pic/vid comparison straight from the phones...etc.
    Oh well, will look forward to some good sites releasing their review videos this week.

    I just got back from a vacation and I used the Google turn by turn navigation on my Eris 2.1 a lot.....this bing junk very easily could end up being a deal breaker....I guess I could just wait even longer for another phone. What the hell were they thinking?

    I'm confused. I thought you could 100% download google voice nav on ANY android 2.1+ phone. It's an app on the market, not one that HAS to be bundled with a new device.

    Am I mistaken?

    Yes, you can download Google Navigation on your phone. It just cannot be launch by the "Search" soft key. You have to launch it by clicking the icon on the home screen.

    Ah, thanks for clearing that up. I have never launched it using the "Search" soft key, so I guess I won't be missing anything, lol.

    GPS not working? Ouch!

    Hopefully there's a fix coming, or he just had a defective unit.

    Actually, there is another galaxy s that is missing the samsung keyboard. The epic 4g. Maybe it can be ported like the other android keyboards

    Wow. I didn't know that. I am going to go to the Epic 4G forums to see if anyone has tried to port the Samsung Keyboard to the Epic.

    I'm sure you can get the apk for it somewhere, but I won't be bothering as I use Smart Keyboard Pro and like it a lot.
