    Just wondering because our phone does meet the requirements for android 3.0: 1 ghz processor, 3.5 inch screen or larger, etc. what do you guys think? i know samsung has already stated that we will be getting a 2.2 update but i can't help myself from thinking ahead :)

    I am sure we will get it all in good time, but just enjoy your amazing phone for what it is right now. It is so much fun already, and first we will get froyo, before we can even consider gingerbread. Enjoy today for tomorrow may never come.

    you do realize Google already came out and said that those minimum specs were bogus right? Also take this with a grain of salt, but my girlfriend works for T-Mobile and she had attended the Vibrant training with a bunch of people from Samsung, and she had asked about 3.0, and they said it will get it, but there is no date(which of course makes sense since Google hasn't put a date on 3.0 as of yet)

    Take that as you will, but this is what she told me a few of the Samsung reps had said.

    I don't see why we wouldn't but the way it looks it looks like 3.0 won't be released until October or november time which would mean maybe late december or early next years time.

    Oh yeah...I would be perfectly content for a time as well. I'd looked at app utilizing GPS and it appeared something was amiss...then I found all the forum threads! Freakish misery, I tell ya...:mad:

    Lets work on getting an update for the GPS first, then worry about android 3.0. They way it is going so far, there won't be a GPS update and no Android 3.0 till 2050.

    The way it's been going? The phone has been out for 13 days. Patience is a good virtue to have.

    Umm actually the galaxy S has been released around the world prior to t-mobile getting it, and all world phones are having GPS problems, I wasn't just refering to the vibrant.

    All of the new high top of the line HTC phones are the dev phones. First it was the G1, as it was the first android phone, and the Nexis One, as it was the first 1ghz android phone (I think). This is just what I think. When an HTC, dual core processor phone comes along (Project Emerald/HTC Glacier?), they will have a dev version I bet.

    I think he means the fact that the N1 is no longer sold at all.... *EXCEPT* as a Dev Phone from Google.

    Who knows. This is a reason why I want a stock android phone. Touchwiz & Motorblur are not android to me.

    Yall need to quit complaining about 3.0 and worry about getting an official 2.2 and what does it matter anyways? there clearly are devs that ported 2.2 so what makes you think you guys won't see it one way or another?

    i would imagine we will see 3.0 on the vibrant... the galaxy s phones are samsung's premier lineup... so it would only be natural for them to keep it up to date. they have a top notch phone that is competing against the best of all android phones, and samsung knows that if it is to stay in the competiton, they have to keep it up to date with the competition. look at all the htc phones, like the droid and the evo, they have just recently released 2.2, and sammy is allegedly releasing 2.2 by the end of this month.

    True.......as of right now. And i think we will get it but when? 2.2 sure is taking a while but i think that has something to do with Fasinate just getting relerased and it was the last Galaxy S do be released which is wh we are getting it later this month. But i could be wrong since T-Mobile allegedly has already had the upgrade sent from Samsung.
