Only problem? Samsung. They've never been amazing with firmware updates. Their app drawer is also really, really ugly.

"Successor" seems a bit of an exaggeration, too, considering this uses a 1 GHz Snapdragon anyway. It's the same generation. I'd consider a device a "successor" if it's the next step up--1.5 GHz processor at the very least.

I'm impressed they have xvid/divx playback in there. I imagine it won't be long until we get that on our nexus one.

That's true. I'm eagerly awaiting the next batch of processors, but who knows when that will be?

In the mean time, this has me salivating.

LOL, the exact same thing I thought when I saw it say Samsung.

While I am impressed at all the support for various files, they couldn't force that hideous UI on me.

N1: 59.8 x 119 x 11.5 millimetres, 130 grams (battery included)
From: http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=specs&i...us_htc_passion

S: 64.2 x 122.4 x 9.9mm, 118g

Thinner and lighter. Width and height are just barely larger, which is impressive considering the extra 0.3" on the screen size.
