    This will be the best phone of the year IMHO. Early reviews are very good. Big question is what versions will be release for the US. Being stuck on Verizon, I expect it to be gimped somehow and very late to the game. But at this point I will likely wait until this phone is available on Verizon to upgrade from my DX.

    I need to see this phone in person already. One of those 10mil units could very well be my phone.

    Samsung is known to throw old users to the curbside. Once a newer product comes out you can pretty much forget about your device seeing another update (the exception is the Nexus S for obvious reasons).

    Looks like nice hardware but with TouchWiz, it's still a fail.

    I wish they made TouchWiz as minimalistic and elegant as possible.
    I'll wait to see how much love this phone gets from developers.

    Always best to wait instead of being an early adopter. However, I've had an upgrade available for two months just waiting for a worthy phone to upgrade over my DX. This one looks like a winner if it isn't gimped by Verizon.

    I hear ya buddy!!! You know what i hate about a comment like this, are the d-bags that come in and are like "stop bitching and just root and rom your phone already" Even though I am rooted and rom'd, it shouldn't be up to a dev to make a $500 phone act like one. This is the one thing that scares me about the gs2 but the specs are just too sexy for me not to consider this a replacement device.

    Verification failure?

    What version of the phone? what firmware? what method did you use to root it?

    Theres a whole Galaxy S section here, if you need help just ask there

    Then use another launcher, this is so easy to change.

    I really like Touchwiz and the new version has got very positive reviews. :D

    Yep, i'm curious how US carriers are going to screw this one up.
