    ok, putting my flame suit on, not trying to start a war or rumor, but will the Moment be considered for 2.2 Froyo, or is 2.1 the limits of this phone?

    also, what are the main differences between 2.2 and 2.1?

    In theory, the phone should be able to run 2.2. We just don't have any idea how quickly Samsung will get it packaged up as a firmware for us.

    For me honestly, by the time 2.2 makes it on to the Moment, I suspect that I'll have moved to another handset.

    I like the moment a lot (I really haven't had a the problems that others here have had), but new phones are coming out so fast, I have a feeling I'll jump to a newer device sometime late fall or early winter (November will be a year that I've had the Moment).

    I'm not sure what all the differences will be. Supposedly there are a bunch of performance tweaks in 2.2 that should significantly improve speed.

    Considering the bare basic no frills 2.1 update Samsung did, I doubt they'll bother giving us another update unless Google bends their arms. OTH, the rumored hardware spec of the Moment2/Intercept are similar enough that hacker community should be able to port over any 2.2 update for that device over to the Moment if Samsung leaves us high and dry.

    From what I've gleaned, 2.2 adds JIT to speed operations. Flash support (maybe not for slower devices). A host of enterprise improvements and some ui tweaks.

    This is why I need to stay off these forums like I need to stay out of car dealerships. You start getting the fever for a new one!

    I LOVE my Moment, but just the mention of a Moment2 makes me so happy, but I probably won't upgrade until mine dies, 'cause I'm cheap like that.
