    I could find no "direct link." The link you published is only to some no-name blog called Gizmocrunch, which provides no quote or link to Samsung's alleged announcement. Paraphrasing, but not quoting, the blog claims that Samsung "announced it via Twitter," but provide no link to that.

    There was a quote to this effect several days ago widely attributed to Samsung India, but that is hardly the same thing.

    Meanwhile, Samsung's Galaxy S Support feed for the United States on Twitter, which typically does not work weekends, still said this as of yesterday:
    Since you are still scraping egg off your face from prematurely and erroneously calling the Sprint DK28 leak an "official" release just a week ago, I should think you would be more careful about declaring something "official" without stronger evidence from an actual official source.

    Heck, maybe it's true. Maybe it's not.

    LoL,, I'm not going to hold my breath but I will say this, I talked to Sprint yesterday and they did say an operating system upgrade will happen within 3 weeks as soon as Sprint certifies it on there system. Since Gingerbread is the latest software it would seem dumb for them to upgrade the S line to a been there done that version like 2.2. Gingerbread would make a much bigger wave in that big pool and move Epic to the front of the line once again.. We will see what the next few weeks will bring.

    This still?!? :rolleyes: It being hosted on Google's servers was my proof-enough. You are right though, I jumped on the same bandwagon that everyone (except for apparently you) did....

    To quote what YOU have said:
    The dead horse has been beaten enough already... let's move on to something PRODUCTIVE! :)

    I'm so excited! I'm sticking with my EPIC now. I considered defecting to the Nexus S, but FroYo on the EPIC is great and is more than sufficient to hold me over until Gingerbread.

    This is probably the true statement. I'm sure Samsung wants Gingerbread to be exclusive to the Nexus-S line for some time before going global with it.

    Does anybody think we could get a clean build ported without Touchwiz? I'd love to see that.

    This OP is utter misinformation.

    As of today, Samsung's U.S. Galaxy S support site on Twitter denies that thare has been any announcement about support for Gingerbread:

    there's no reason that samsung would want gingerbread to be exclusive on nexus-s, being that it's the smallest major carrier in the u.s.

    Exclusive permanently, no, however it has been hypothesized that google and samsung and TMo would like it to be so for at least for a period in order to boost sales of the Nexus S. Since it doesnt outspec current phones on other carriers, Gingerbread is probably the largest selling point (for those that consider switching carriers) aside from being the best phone offered on Tmobile.

    If the delay for froyo is not because they decided to skip froyo all together and go to gingerbread, I will get another phone unless froyo releases JANUARY!

    I will keep my phone sure, but if in lets say it's near August 2011, such as May, or june, and they release a new software update, and if it doesn't have the words "Gingerbread" or Android 2.3 on it, I honestly will never buy a samsung phone again.

    The only way I will ever excuse such a long delay, is because they decided to skip 2.2 and go to 2.3...
