Before reading anything else on this thread... My very first question !
Is Galaxy S capable enough to enjoy Gingerbread 3.0 in future? There are different opinions about total RAM capacity for Galaxy S, but no opinion seems to be convincing enough.
I'm planning to upgrade to Galaxy S from my Galaxy Spica but I do not want to get stuck on 2.2, if Galaxy S not gonna get atleast 3.0 in the future.
Opinions are welcome please...
@racerz,Samsung galaxy S is much better then HTC Nexus One.
Evo+Nexus one=Galaxy S
every month a new update?what the hell?does that mean they want to outdate their phones monthly?android sucks
Hardy17, 01 Jul 2010I was planning to buy Nexus One, but now i'll wait for the Update and think about it...u dont need to wait.its a good phone.u can update it manually from 2.1 to froyo 2.2.
i hve been using my nexus one since it came out.i hve no problem with it so far.its very fast phone and very responsive.and it only gets better and better after the update.now my nexus one running froyo 2.2 with flash and probably the best phone out there besides the EVO.and even the new iPhone4 isnt even close.now 3.0 gingerbread update is coming out,im excited wats gonna be.so hey if ur nexus one owner ..this is great for us to hve it first :)
Honestly, is there really a point for me to keep upgrading my nexus one when they keep announcing stupid azz firmware upgrades every other week. It makes me want to go back to my iPhone really bad, but I honestly am tired of apple too....and android is more tolerable. But this is ridiculous.

These keep update OS more than I have lunch. Make up their mind before lease another update
bye bye poor X10 no android 3.0 and no froyo thanx google android only real phone like nexus, evo 4g, desire, droid x, droid 2, galaxy s, galaxy s pro. ram 512mb and X10 only ram384 mb. short live for X10 with android 2.1
When the hell is Android music player getting equalizer update??! Don't say that Android does not support equalizer cause Samsung Galaxy S has a very nice anc extensive sound manager with equalizer built into the music player.
In so many ways a bad move.
minimum of 3.5 inch displays?
Huh???? Wildfire, X10 mini. Great pocketfriendly devices for the masses. And girls tend to prefer smaller phones than 3.5"
That really makes no sense.
And the hardware specs... well a phone like that will not be cheap for quite some time. Not all can afford those devices.
If you want market shares, you should try to reach as many categories of phones as possible!
A split in two might be a very good thing.
But then they need to continue to support both. And then 3.0 is a really bad name. That means there can only be 7 more major updates for the 2.x branch.
They should come up with some new names, to make a distinct difference between the Two. At this point the Android brand is weak enough to be replaced with something new, without hurting the sales.
But clearly they cant think that android 2.2 will be enough for ever... The devices in the future with screens smaller than 3.5" cant survive with an abadonned platform.
And google really need devices like that.
Sure, personaly i would have no problem fitting 3.5" in my pocket. Or holding it in my hand. Reaching the whole screen. And I can afford devices with the high specs.
But on the other hand, even I think the X10 minis are super cool. Im even considering getting one of them, to use as my main phone. It covers all the mobile needs you will have if you also have a tablet, or netbook, or netvertible, or....
And there are a lot of people that think 3.5" simply is to big. And sometimes, it really is to big for them to use it with one hand. And its not always about the money either.
Lets just hope this rumor is untrue.
And that either Google in the future will support two branches of what we today know as Android.
Or that those minimum specs are false.
In one way positiv.
Now there are a lot of current phones that dont meet the requierements for this.
So the manufactor knows, if they only bring it to 2.2, they are as up to date as they can ever get.
What the hell are all you people talking about? You are angry because Google keeps updating the os and making it better? since when is this a bad thing ?LOL. It`s NOT googles fault that the manufacturers dont implement froyo to theyr phones, or they bring the updates very late.
Talking about the Htc Legen buyers for example, well, you ALWAYS buy a phone for the features and os it currently has. You don`t buy a phone if you don`t think it`s worthy of your money with it`s current os, apps ... You don`t buy it for the main reason that maybe in 6 months you will have froyo too. You always pay for the phone`s Present features.
So google keeps improving Android very fast. Android 2.1 and 2.2 are already great and fast . So i really don`t see any probplem here. You should be happy that they spend so much time and money for Android.
So stop bitching and buy yourself an Iphone if you like theyr company`s policy better ("improving" the os with little baby steps 1 year at a time - 2010 wallpapers, 2011 custom sms ringtones? ..) .
Wrong Move google.
Its like WIndows Mobile 7.. no originality.
common, make an android 3.0 with possibility of 3rd party UI, dont change anything just make it faster and more useful!!!!!!!!!!!
wow, Android codename is always "sweet"... cupcake, donut, eclair, froyo, gingerbread... maybe the sweeter codename for next Android is...lollipop. :D
the high end screen res is HD? wow great, say bye2 to that stupid iPhone..
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2010Mate I have to strongly disagree. Although I feel Android is a strong product I think it is a ... moreCompletely agree dude, you don't fork out a lot of money for a product that won't last.
Wow. This sucks... I wish it's just a rumor. It would be ugly having the same UI on every Android phone. No more Sony Ericsson or HTC UI. :( That's kinda lame. I just wish the new Android UI would be awesome.
