    Phonedog one showed some keyboard typing, and the keyboards. Did not see Swype.

    The Swype keyboard is enabled using another method. It's there. :D

    Is it confirmed that the battery cover is metal? That'd be a nice surprise

    these videos are pissing me off :mad:

    all i want to see is if you press home, what screen it takes you to
    on the international there was a big hooplah over the fact that
    the touchwiz made the leftmost screen home. however in all the videos
    the center screen appeared to be home, however every single person who
    unboxed it flicked the screens even if they were all the way to one side.

    how am i suppose to see which screen is home if they never press it!!!

    then send the person a PM or something or leave a comment on the video and ask them to show you what you want to see. how would they know what your thinking? i'll see if i can find you a video with someone doing that btw.

    When I played with the phones at the release event a couple weeks ago, pressing the home button brought you back to the center screen each time.

    Also, just a hint, you can set up a Google search that will continually pull in the latest articles for a search.

    samsung captivate - Google Search

    Yes, I'm an addict. :p

    be nice if the back was a little more solid, if not maybe a third party solution to give the phone a little more solid feel, I'll give up weight for that.

    In the phonedog unboxing unfortunately it definitely seems there is NO microphone icon for text messaging input...wtf? I thought that was a part of the OS?

    More solid than metal? Rawr? :confused:

    But no I dont think it's metal...He really couldn't pull it off to be sure. Besides I said I hope it's metal, if it isnt then I hope for the third party solution.

    It's metal. Guy says so in the TechnoBuffalo unboxing above @ 5:59.

    The android and me reviewer says its plastic in the comments to his unboxing.

    Some people mentioned its metal. I'm inclined to think its metal because some reviews flick the back and it sounds like metal.

    Yeah, it's most definitely metal. On the TechnoBuffalo one, you can definitely hear it's metal when he takes the back off and sets it down, and again when he puts it back on.

    The Epic 4g has the microphone button on swype at the bottom right. Maybe someone can extract that version of swype from the phone so you can install it on yours?? Kind of like how I used to use the htc keyboard. Actually the Droid X also has that version of swype with the mic. Maybe you can use that??
