I wonder how many people would buy this phone with 2.1?

jonesdavide says:

There is no way I will buy a Samsung phone. What a mess.

Asterisk says:

What about 3G? It's so spotty in Atlanta - not even funny. Why not perfect 3G before moving onto bigger things. I'd definitely prefer better coverage over speed.

icebike says:

FAIL!

2.3 is the current release Samsung.

More evidence of hijinks if you ask me.

I might actually send back my MT4G for Vibrant 4G. I like the Vibrant's size and of course the screen. Also now that it has 2.2 I wouldn't mind if Sammy never updates to future OS. 2.2 is sufficient for what I do with my phone.

Will the sidekick 4g run Android OS?

peruboy63 says:

Both will be running 2.2

Count me out of Samsung's future products. I'd been warned about their "software support" but still bought a Captivate AND an Epic. GPS on both devices are terribly unreliably...will NOT lock so yes, it's useless. Will this new model have GPS fixed? Will it be upgraded to GingerBread? Shame on me for NOT listening to what other users have said. Bye bye Samsung!

I tend to roll my eyes at the "3g" and "4g" pissing contest. They're not standards like 10baseT or 100baseT. It's like infinityBand, which is really just 10gbps. The standard is HSPA+.

And of course Tmo still hasn't rolled out the 2.2 update.

I think we (Galaxy S) users should start writing tmobile and say "well the OTHER COMPANY has the same phone with 2.2, give me a reason not to jump".

Ha. Even if I was still on T Mobile. After learning of Samsung's policies. It'll be a cold day in hell when I buy anything of theirs ever again.

mykpfsu says:

Tmobile 4g, that makes me laugh.
Yes you can say there are not "standards", but LTE is beyond 3g and will get upgrade to true 4g, Tmobile ain't even on the right highway for 4g.

Simer03 says:

their speeds are faster than anyone right now, and they will be going to LTE when other carriers catch up which will be years from now.....i work for Tmobile, Verizon, and AT&T
