    That phone sounds orgasmic, and it double the power of my D2G! Still, no keyboard,

    And I just got my SGS not long ago :( On that end I don't think its that worthwhile an upgrade... though that is an immensely sexy phone...

    Best screen I've ever seen and fastest phone I've ever used. Definitely a worthy upgrade to my i9000.
  9. Funny how the design is almost exactly similar to the iphone...Coincidence. :)

    Not really. The screen is almost 1 inch bigger, the device is thinner and it has 3 buttons at the bottom.

    Unless apple has patented curved corners(well they THINK they did) on a device then there's no similarities other than it being a candy bar phone with a speaker over the screen.
  11. Looks like Samsung has another winner on their hands!

    I think the design is more similar to their older phone, the F480. this just seems like a larger more scaled up version of that.

    The front looks similar (Most touch screen smarts do) but the similarities pretty much end there.

    Besides, I don't think apple has patented "Large screen with button at the bottom".

    "The device's new Live Panel allows you to aggregate web, social networking, and app content to a single customizable home screen."

    Exactly, Samsung has managed to grow WP's 'Hubs' on this device, not a bad copy thgouh ;)
