    How long do you think it will take until developers can release a Gingerbread rom for the Epic?

    I thought Gingerbread was 2.3 and dk28 was 2.2.1

    Edit: Nvm, you mean Gingerbread has been released in general :p

    IF Samsung is smart they will upgrade the entire Galaxy S line. The only "hardware" difference that I read was the NFC chip inside the Nexus S. Otherwise the Nexus S seems VERY similar to the rest of the Galaxy S family.

    again, big IF

    I thought Gingerbread was specifically for tablets. Not sure if the Epic will ever get it.

    I haven't learned enough to really be the judge but it seems like it should be pretty simple for Samsung to release Gingerbread for the Galaxy S line now with the Nexus S. I figure if they don't do it then there will definitely be a developer that will pick up their slack.

    I was so happy to see Samsung keeping the same hardware for the Nexus S as the Galaxy S line. I would think the Epic will eventually get Honeycomb too but I'd guess that won't be from Samsung.

    Nope, that's Honeycomb that is being designed with tablets in mind but even that I'm pretty sure will be phone compatible.

    Here's an article on the Gingerbread & Nexus S release:

    I so hope a developer makes a 2.3 rom.

    Well atleast us epic owners should be happy since we have the same hardware of the officiall google phone we can probably get all the future updates and hopefully more support from rom developers.

    You know I was really hoping 2.3 would have hardware acceleration support to really utilize our GPU.
    It would really make android dominant.

    Ok here goes:

    One bright day in the middle of the night
    2 dead mean got up to fight
    back to back they faced each other
    drew their swords and shot each other
    a deaf police man heard the noise
    he came and shot those two dead boys
    now If you don't beleive that this lie is true...
    ask the blind man, he saw it too.
