    I couldn't find it on samsung's twitter page. Is it SamsungMobileUS, or is it another one?

    By the time it comes out our phones will be obsolete, just look how long samsung is taking with froyo, unacceptable imo for such a high end phone.

    ...and after the first few iterations, probably better than the official release anyway.

    I think so too, those xda dev's will have it up and running on our phones in no time.

    I don't like how they don't cite their source, as in a link. I'd rather read the actual twitter and surmise for myself what samsung meant. Even if they explicitly stated all galaxy s makes and models for all countries, I would not believe it unless samsung U.S. said it. Even a statement like "All galaxy S phones will receive 2.3" is not clear enough, it could just be referring to the international version.

    Nowhere in their does it say the US is getting it, all it says is that the Galaxy S is spread throughout the 4 major US cell phone carriers. That seems like irrelevant/misleading information to me.

    I agree, no reputable sources stated in the article, thus it leads me to believe it is going off the basis of that premature tweet from Samsung India. As of yesterday, Samsung has still not said anything about gingerbread being released. Although I do hope that gingerbread does come out for the captivate, the title of this thread is quite misleading.

    Considering all the rumors about FroYo, I think Samsung is keeping their mouth shut.

    Exactly. That's why they're called "rumors". :D

    There's a page on the Captivate FAQ about it:

    I'm betting gingerbread isn't released for galaxy s phones until early fall 2011. By then android 3.5 will be out. Honeycomb will probably be out by Q1 or Q2 2011.

    Our phones won't exactly be obsolete. We can get upgrades after 20 months correct? For me that would mean I could get an upgrade at about April 2012 so i would probably get about 6 months out of gingerbread.

    I think the exact opposite I'm betting froyo gets skipped and within the next two months all galaxy S get gingerbread just like the nexus S
