Samsung Galaxy S

The news of Wi-Fi Direct recently gave everyone hope that their device will be able to connect with others simply via a Wi-Fi connection. While the news was exciting, we didn't receive dates or specific device lists in order to estimate a time frame. 

Samsung's Galaxy S was caught on the Wi-Fi Alliance's Wi-Fi Direct certification listing; it is the first smartphone to receive the certification. 

No news on when this would be available to consumers, but this is a sign that we should see Wi-Fi Direct in action in the near future. Galaxy S users, you may be the lucky ones to try it first. [Wi-Fi Alliance via Engadget]

I read this yesterday. Hopefully it'll push with the next update... Also, I would love to see this tied to some sort of printing option which will make the phone a productivity power house !!!

I know they are not going to be GPS Certified! (I know everyone is tired of hearing that. I couldn't resist)

Why is it taking so long for froyo anyway?

cjbrigol says:

I'm guessing they can't fix the GPS issue and they're stalling as long as possible so they can sell galaxy tabs before they announce the error.

ScubaNitrox says:

I believe you are right! But, I hope you are not right!

Froyo brought issues? It's the cleanest release I've ever seen.

Did he actually say 2-31-2011? I hope he was just joking or did Obama pass a new law saying February has 31 days now?
