    Back in the good old days, you could expect a new firmware release from Samsung every month or so. After the release of JC6 (donut), things seem to have ground to a halt, even though there are some serious bugs in this firmware (no sleep etc).
    What are Samsung up to? Have they completely dropped support for this phone?

    For all the whining I do around here, I'm willing to cut Samsung some slack on this issue. First, to answer your question, I think they are focusing more resources on their new Galaxy S phone.

    Secondly, I've known Samsung more as a hardware manufacturer than anything else, and in that regard, I have to say, the i7500 is a wonderful phone. The ONLY real complaint I have is battery life, and I can't think of any competition that does things better, so for what I paid for, this is a very solid phone.

    The situation could be better, yes, but I know *other* manufacturers and Samsung IS better than them.
