Its a very good device. Really. I have I9000b variant, from Brazil, which cames with Digital TV reception.
I am really waiting for Cyanogen to make a custom ROM for it, because, honestly, Samsung messed up a few things in the software. I want plain vanilla android. I had that on my N1 (works like a charm) and have it on a HTC Magic. For now, only rooting and switching TouchWIZ for ADWLauncher (adw does not need root).

this product is the iphone clone, i just purchased it after having an iphone and im so dissapointed... I have always been a samsung fanatic but this one let me down, i just sold my iphone to go to this and its a good phone, but my iphone was better because it wouldnt lag.
Nice phone just 2 points:
1)The lack Adobe Flash built in (which will probably be corrected in future updates) can be worked around with Skyfire or Opera browsers.
2) I would EXPECT that a phone as good as this and priced over $ 600 U.S. to have a FLASH to go along with the camera !!! What are we supposed to do... only take pictures during the day !!
Come on Samsung ; give your head a shake !!
