aabritt says:

curious as to why it was so secretive about what was being released and it lasted all of what 13 minutes total. a poster and a link would have suffice, lol...

Come on, guys, it wouldn't be showboating if they just put out a poster. This is the age where everybody has to have a spectacular fireworks show for the smallest achievements.

Not to say this is small, I actually kinda dig this phone.

A brand new higher-end phone.... with 2.1? Yeesh, that doesn't give much confidence in updating and staying current. Samsung just keeps on underwhelming.

Binged Again!!!! Arg....

fredmr85 says:

kind of disappointing this thing is getting so much publicity while at the same time the MyTouch 4G released a week ago and considered to be one of the top Android phones by most other sites hasn't even been fully reviewed here. I mean so what....Samsung, rather than give you a full touchscreen, decided to put a piece of plastic in the middle and create a second screen below it? If someone really wants a "ticker" that bad..why not just give the option to run it along the bottom of a larger screen so you have the option rather than a permanent waste of space?

Agreed with fred, this phone is a step down from previous galaxy s phones
