    Full specs according to FoneArena:

    Samsung Galaxy S i9000 Full Specifications

    Price yet to be announced.


    My only question is: how dedicated is Samsung to Android? After all, they're developing their own smartphone OS in 'Bada' aren't they?

    That's right, I would not buy that either. I have never owned a Samsung phone yet, but I heard their software is not good.

    However, because this is Android, we can replace the ROM most probably.

    But still, I dont like it looks ... you should know what I am talking about the look :D

    Ya, I didn't really look at the photo, but iPhone indeed. <ugh>

    As for Samsung, I owned some of their dumb flip-phones over the years and found the interface/software OK. My fianc

    Worst. Custom Android UI. Ever. The shameless iPhone clone look is just ugly, both UI and hardware. I'll pass. Where's the HTC Supersonic announcement?

    I would hope that a Super AMOLED is one that can be seen in sunlight.:thinking:

    I wouldn't buy it either. It looks fantastic but I don't trust their company anymore. Odds are you will get that phone and have huge issues that are not even acknowledged, let alone fixed, for the first 3 months that you own it:(

    Hooray! That's about the only phone that could have made me fall out of love with my N1 if not for the fact that it's, like, EXCLUSIVE LULZ NO. And a bit huge.

    Agreed. Samsung makes great screens, no denying that, but everything else... no. TouchWiz is hideous. The phone's form factor is hideous. Software support in the future is likely to be ugly. So no, no, and no.

    Aside from Bada, it really looks like that Samsung is trying to push out Android phones like almost every other company is trying to. Now the phone is nice, but with the Evo that's coming out I can't see this phone taking off too much. Where I work now, I'm asked over and over when we plan on supporting the Evo even though it was announced just a couple of days ago. People are really hyped for this phone. :D

    I agree. It would have much better chances if it were the first 1GHz processor with an physical querty. That would be enough to set it apart from the Evo. However, in it's own right it might do well if it's not going to Sprint.:rolleyes:
