But still i like the Desire, but the limit with the rom is horrible, also he uses sometimes the 148mb space for some caching and even when i have now 15mb free he keeps bugging me with the nonstop notification "low disc space" :( and since i don't want to risk something with rooting the Desire i rather wait for the Galaxy S because for better video playback support and for the bigger rom available for the apps.

awesome preview....AWESOME!

so the UI on DESIRE is better hands down BUT sammy brings a few other things to the table, especially HD cam and video codec playback! although whats up with NO FLASH (cam)?????

this phone is supposed to be a premium version of galaxy spica. so there are some identical points:
- android OS
- the back side are identical (the camera placement)

This better come to AT&T soon, given Samsung's bringing it to the U.S. and it's already passed FCC with AT&T's bands. Bye-Bye Blackberry Bold!

I have the HTC Desire, its video playback capabilities are miserable and there is only 148mb free rom (internal storage) for apps, i managed to break that limit only after two days, now i have to uninstall apps every time to make space for new ones, so for those thinking Desire is perfect think again... I'm really waiting to swap my Desire for Galaxy S, cause i hope it will have the 8/16gb as the internal storage for apps, but i really hope it won't have only 256mb ram like i spotted on some info pages...

outdoes the desire in screen size and quality,HD recording and playback. Desire has a better design and UI. samsung 19000 wins.

Please Samsung give this phone a flash and camera button! The Beam and wave both have them, so why not the Galaxy S?

Hope is has lots of RAM too. It will be great if it comes out in 1 month.

Not a very detailed preview, but I guess they will do a full review when it comes out. Quite a lot of spelling, punctuation and grammar errors and some double words after one another...but at least they posted this preview asap.
