    So any news on accessories. We all know about the home dock, but considering the phone is coming out in different flavors, will it still work with all of them? How bout a car dock, that would be killer.

    The home dock should be fine as far as I know they still have the same inputs so I don't see why not.

    Need to keep this thread alive for when the train full of owners comes rolling by asking the same question. Sticky maybe? If its near the top hopefully members can add there findings......

    Having searched high and low there a nearly no accessories for this phone yet - Im hoping this changes over the coming weeks as people learn of this device. Hopefully Incipio and Switcheasy get on board, Im looking for a hard shell case like iphone.

    Would be nice if we could buy it, wouldn't it. I quite fancy one for work and one for home, even though I know it'll be pricey.

    Re sync to kies - have you changed your Launcher? I beleive that kies only works with standard launcher.

    I have changed to LauncherPro - i don't really care about Kies, as i sync with Google for calandar and contacts, pop3 for email, and mass storage for music vids etc.

    Where's all this dock rumours coming from? I have yet to see a single picture (shopped or not) of a dock for this phone.

    The Galaxy S preview site had a video about how great the phone was that included a bit showing the phone in the dock.

    Now that is interesting...

    SAMSUNG GALAXY S - The big flash video on this had images of the "Home Dock" just a few days ago, it's completely changed now.....

    How is the Galaxy S supposed to dock anyway? The only port is at the top, and a tiny one at that. The rest of the phone is rounded, so no dock will be able to get a proper grip on it without wrapping around the phone.

    About that video.... I think they replaced the phone and the dock with two photo frames.

    I can agree with karnka - the site had a dock, where the phone was docked in horizontally, with a decent speaker system underneath it on the bedside table. Now, what you see if an image of a female in a photo frame... (you can still see some blue from under the frame, where the dock light would have reflected off the table)

    Also, to add to that, there was a section where the guy in the flash video was sitting on the couch, in front of a samsung TV with a remote app on the handset. This has now been removed from the flash & I can't find the app on my Samsung Galaxy S....


    Some shifty stuff happening here...

    if you go to samsung's accessory webpage ( Cell Phone Accessories - Cell Phones | SAMSUNG ), you'll find that headset, and when you do, on that page at the top, will be a tab "compatibility models" or something like that - clik it and it'll tell you what models it's compatible with

    Re. item 2;

    I remember reading (somewhere!) that if you run a 64bit version of Windows (are you?), that you would have to download something else in order to use Kies.
    Sorry to be so vague! Hope it helps.

    I found that app, but you have to go to the "samsung apps" icon. In there they have the tv remote app, a pretty decent game, road sms (which is really cool everyone should get it) and a few other random ones.
