AT, 19 Jun 2010From where you get the information that it will be in stores after 20th June in Delhi/NCRwell i enquired from a dealer in delhi ,when the phone was launched worldwide and no dates were given about indian launch by samsung. he told me that phone will be launching on 15th and will be available to retailers on 20th.thats exactly what happened when nobody had a clue about its launch.

So if you say we need t wait for 2.2 to enjoy 512 ram, thats fine, but how to make sure that my handset has 512 and not 256 in the first place? (or is it 100% that all Galaxy S have 512 just showing 256?)
Yes, That's what I have read on some forums. All of them are having this limitation because they are using 2.1
what about other android phones that have 512 ram and android 2.1 like htc desire. do thay have the same problems?

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2010can u give me the link?http://www.tomsguide.com/us/Go...ws-6541.html
these 2 sites both note that 2.1 cannot use more than ~230mb of RAM. Though not official, it's still something. Hope that helps!
Boy, that would really suck, when is 2.2 coming out? Because in the vids on gsmarena, the galaxy S was so smooooooth
sam song, 18 Jun 2010it will be available to retailers from 20th june onwards in delhi ncrFrom where you get the information that it will be in stores after 20th June in Delhi/NCR
take note: 2.1's max ram is only 256, when we get the 2.2 upgrade, it'll show up 512.
this was already confirmed
kitsune, 18 Jun 2010Actually the phone has 512 MB but the kernel doesn't utilize it all hence the system saing it ... moreAre you sure that 256 problem is only kernel issue and will be fixed with 2.2? How do you know that? Does it mean that all Galaxy S have 256 at the moment?
No 512 Ram , Only Showing 256 , Is this some Dirty Selling tactics by samsung i.e realsing the phone thats not fully
ready for the consumer use.
Im not happy , we should not have to wait for updates, can
this be checked out by gsmarena.
If all stays like this then i have no choice but move on to the iphone 4 which im sure will sell as advertised.
I have recieved the phone , impressed with the display but found its lags when mutliple apps are opened and also dont like to text font in emails,sms,web - there fonts are not smooth but look pixellated .
One major concern which i would like gsm arena to take up or query as its just not me but other users and thats the ram , yes its only showing 256 and thats the reason for the lags , Now are these handsets sold in uk are not the final versions or has there been some software issues from samsung, either way its against consumer law and we need to know if we have been mislead or been sold products not fit for sale in the UK, i Would appreciate if GSMARENA can shed some light or put us to the right
For all the dutch people here.
Go to typhone.nl or smartphoneshop.nl. they all got it in stock, atleast thats what they say

A fix for this problem will come in 2.2 :).
