So, who is right and who is wrong?
Can someone confirm that Samsung doesn't support firmware update for their phones or not?

Samsung doesn't upgrade firmwares.
Samsung products have Durability Issues.
Samsung faces a lot of cases and suites in their products.
Samsung suppress consumers rights to own durable products.
Shou Ji, 03 Sep 2008Not true. Samsung always upgrade firmware their product, especially smartphone device.Oh, really! Happy to hear that. :)
However, I still cannot find a firmware update in download session of Samsung website.
What is the process of updating firmware? I mean, via PC suite or just download from the website?
etoile, 02 Sep 2008I heard that Samsung never support firmware update for their phones except Omnia. It is TRUE???? Not true. Samsung always upgrade firmware their product, especially smartphone device.

I didn't expect you (uh huh) to actually "reply". In fact, I didn't specify anyone in particular, did not intend to target anyone too. That was based on my observation in general but looks like you ate chilis and felt hot yourself. Just too bad. It's OK, go on, I'm sure you'll "reply" again but I won't waste time responding. You already called me coward, arrogant or stupid for keeping quiet & humble but using these offensive words already betrayed your personality to everyone reading here. I suggest you take sometime off from any website forums, chill up somewhere, watch some movies (non-violent ones) or workout in a gym to stabilize your mind. You have too much anger in you and try to accept that there's no perfection in life. Your angle of approach in things you see in life is certainly detrimental to you or your health in years to come. Just a thought - for your benefits. Cheer up friend!!
Ordered the 16gb version on o2 from e2save.com today (part of Carphonewarehouse).Will be with me tomorrow by 1pm. Can't wait to replace my tired N95.

OK i respect your point but lets get things right okay!!!
.the Nokia n85 has the best display ever put in a phone its called amoled unlike the display of the innov8(LCD)the n85 display outmatches it in nearly every single way, brighter better refresh rate etc., and 30% more power efficient.
.About the battery the nokia n85 has better battery life then the innov8 because it uses a more a efficient display gsmarena can even approve that!
.OK now the light sensor the innov8 might have a light sensor but because it ain't stated anywhere on gsmarena i thought it never had one.
.Now the innov8 definitely does NOT have music buttons, dual slide, dual flash, gaming buttons, navi wheel,FM transmitter, 28 hours of music playback, software updating, HSCSD, UPnP technology.
I said this once and I'm going to say it again
THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU PURCHASE THE INNOV8!!
Thank you for reading.

I hear CPW will get the 16GB ver on O2 next week so I am waiting till then to see if that is the case.
Visted CPW on the way home from work and they have them in stock, but only on Orange. I got the Sales Rep to show me as they weren't on display. Quite impressed with the size, not as big as I imagined definitely slimmer than the N95 and maybe a tad longer. I'm definitely swaying towards purchasing this on O2 from mobiles.co.uk rather than wait for the new Nokia's.

i prefer the Nokia n85 for many reasons over the Samsung innov8!
i mean the n85 looks far better its got a better display better battery, smaller size thinner, music buttons, dual slide, dual flash, gaming buttons, navi wheel, micro usb charging, ambient light sensor, louder speakers, better keypad (that's all i can think of at the moment), and its a made by Nokia so it offers much more possibilities.
and best of all its over 300 euros
SO THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU PURCHASE THE INNOV8!!
PS. all the innov8 offers is basically a 8mega pixel camera without a decent xenon flash so its just ridiculous. you could buy the nokia n85 which has a very good camera and a 12mega pixel digital camera and it will still be cheaper then buying the innov8.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2008i would say its betters looking then n95 a little bigger in lenth but thinneralso feels alot more solid then n95 and screen seems to have a glass cover unlike n95 i broke my screen twice on it so hope this one is better
