You can pretty much google search any question that is not "technical".

Old? The phone dog article was posted an hour ago, and PC Mag published the article on 2/17, today. Anyways, fingers crossed.

Yes.. what is the significance of S? Developers and modders are really curious about this kinda stuff...</sarcasm>

Hey, SamsungJohn... if your message was appropriately tuned to this audience you'd be better received.

Actually, reading the PCMag article, it sounds like this was just said in Barcelona at Mobile World Congress. Probably answering a question during their keynote. Hopefully this guy has some knowledge of the actual process and isn't just saying what people want to hear.

We should all ask a ton of "appropriate" questions in that communicate with samsung thing. Like:

How come the phone is a greyish black?
Why did you choose to use a chrome trim?
Do you think the screen is pretty?

How about "Why won't Samsung let us Epic owners be great?"

Over reading? Maybe. it is just one article and a weak link. I read it pretty late and the mind can play tricks that late.

The Sybase Afaria program can run on Android devices with 2.0.1 or higher (Afaria Clients). They could certainly make that program available to our phones without even a froyo update and it wouldn't contradict anything in that press release.

That is true, i thought of that too, but my rational was that they would have separated the Galaxy S out from the SII if they were going to write the article and put the 2.3 disclaimer in. it seems to me that Sybase would have asked Samsung which phones it had/wanted to support the "New" Clients, which would require 2.3, and Samsung told them the S and SII.

You make very valid points as do some people replying to this article, but i also found it odd, if you would, that Samsung is releasing 4ish sub-Galaxy Phones with 2.2 .... food for thought.

Just give us AOSP for the device. I own it and Sprint should have no say in the matter. I realize this will never happen but it should. I am getting ready to switch to a nexus as this is the only way to eliminate the clash between carriers/mfgs. Google started something great with android its just sad that the carriers/mfgs don't see that yet and keep adding stuff to it and bogging it down with stuff we don't want. If we want that stuff we can add it ourselves, or is that too hard to understand?

I am the consumer here and I want what I want...plain and simple. Maybe the wrong place for this but its what I wanted to say...and this seemed like a good spot to throw it out there.
