Well even i heard it that they have shortage of super AMOLED thats why they r unable to produce sgs now. But that problem can be resolved soon. And as you said by jan end. I wil recommend you to buy sgs instead of nexus s. Rest is your wish.
melvin, 05 Jan 2011hello! samsung galaxy s is much powerful than n8? Or any other mobiles salling in the market... moreThe Nokia N8 is not a good phone, it's the same as 5800, you barely feel any difference. Galaxy S is much better, it's video quality is also better than N8's 12mp camera.
Is it true that this phone discontinue?
I ask several vendor in my country (Indonesia) and they all says the same thing. But when i check at the internet it's still Available. 6 month is to short to discontinue a great phone!!!

You can reply me @ my yahoo mail....email@example.com...
Thak you very much.
dont bother buying the galaxy if you wish to have continous problems, this is my 3rd one, and again i have had to send it off to repair after exchanging it twice. its screen goes black when i move to a different application, and when i swithch the phone on it flashes the samsung sign, then turns itself off and repeadtely does it over and over again until you remove the battery, its crap dont waste your time on it, it was rushed by samsung to compete with apple, i have never been so disappointed in my whole life.

You can update the other countries firmware but you have to hack yr kies(Change Product code) but it's more complex and not always safe.
So as we are not tech savye i suggest just wait for the official update one..
I don't know about yr product code but in UK for XEU they already got 2.2.1. which is far stable and fast than 2.2

Both the phones go neck to neck.

As the hardware is same, the update released in any country should work fine on this phone right?!
