Here's a question which we should be looking at ~ the said 2GB ROM and how 1.8GB is mentioned to be left over for users to store Applications.
This is ROM.. Read Only Memory!
ROM is used to store the initial program that runs when the phone is powered on or otherwise begins execution (a process known as bootstrapping).
All computer related hardware requires some form of mutable memory to record changes in its state as it executes. However, it can not be modified easily and once the Operating System files and other stored data is shipped on the ROM it's only other use is for distributing firmware changes.
Therefore, how is it people are talking of being able to access the 1.8GB of ROM on the Galaxy S i9000 and use it to store applications?
ROM and writing applications to it just don't go together hand in hand.

I work for a mobile company Samsung demo'd this phone and the Samsung Wave both quit similar and very good, im waiting for the samsung galaxy s to be released although the wave has hit the shelves i think they both have the same 5mp HD cam, not sure though but if it is the same you can get a good idea on the quality on youtube.

Anonymous, 28 May 2010A LOT of people FAIL to realize that 99.999% of the Galaxy S buyers DONT care about the camera.simply don't bother to put a camera there then.

Anonymous, 27 May 2010And if you think that buying a new phone is the proper solution, I am Loling at you.I'm not saying buying a new phone is proper solution, accept N97 was failure. But world not stopped by this. Do you know more than 50% of N97 users are happy with it. But I feel pity for rest. Thats why Nokia is giving N8 to such a low price. Nokia rules again.

[deleted post]What about Sprint's Samsung Moment, which got 2.1 upgrade? And about the video, it's showing the N97 using the latest firmware, not N8/N900

Anonymous, 27 May 2010Good comparison. Two points though: - S^3 can't be outdated, it hasn't been released yet! ... moreThats the problem with Symbian^3 it hasnt been released yet and it looks dated, Symbian^3 looks and feels like Symbian^1, probably Symbian^4 will redeem it!

Here's my (unbiased opinion) on the latest phones...
... moreGood comparison. Two points though:
- S^3 can't be outdated, it hasn't been released yet!
- HTC Desire is an all-rounder, but.. what's with the fugly pink spot
in the camera?? I really don't get it why all their phones have it. You'd think they'd get rid of it by now. So I put minus the camera for Desire.
