In the mean time I'll be picking up this Friday the Sprint Galaxy S 2:
Well isn't that cute! You pick up an alternative phone based entirely upon rumors. A phone that is pretty much crap too.
4.52" Super AMOLED Plus display
A display technology proven to limit the usability of the device installed in.
Ultra-thin (9.59mm) design
Pretty shallow if you ask me. Do you pick girl friends based on how thin they are.
Samsung Exynos 1.2GHz dual-core processor
Extra horse power to drive the Java ripoff virtual machine I see. In any event do you really think that Apple has remained stationary here with respect to processor design? Again you are comparing existing hardware with non existent specs.
Almost half of which goes to support the OS and the VM. Note I really hope that Apple isn't that stingy with RAM myself, as it is a big short coming on iOS devices. The problem is that the extra RAM on Android devices isn't really the advantage that many think it is.
16-32 GB flash memory
microSD, up to 32GB
1800 mAh battery
Wimax 4G radio
8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera, Geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, image stabilization
1080p HD video recording
Samsung Kies Air
Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi hotspot
NOVA 2 HD pre-loaded
AES-256 internal/external hardware encryption
Stereo FM radio with RDS
Sounds like someone gets their panties all wet over specs.
Hotspot controls up to eight devices
Optional USB Host kit for connection keyboards, cameras, printers and thumb drives
Actually this is one point I have to agree with. Apple really needs to work much harder on bringing random connectivity to iOS.
Optional HDMI adapter
Android 2.3 upgradable to 4.0
Well we will see about that upgrade. In any event Android and Samsung turn out a device that leaves you holding stolen property, I'm sure you feel good about that.
