Only problem is that Samsung have now gone and pulled the Froyo update (til November anyway). Still I'd rather have a properly functioning Froyo update than a rushed effort.

Btw does anyone know if the one click lag fix will work with Froyo?

But, software, and I mean all software in any of their devices, is crap. Incredibly clumsy user interfaces, even for "simple" devices like TV sets, MP3 players, anything. You name it.

Samsung is a greedy company, hungry for market share numbers, but nothing else. When they were a follower, they really tried hard. Once they got higher market shares, their behavior changed.

That´s also when I left that company after quite some time working for them - I know too much of the freaking negative stuff.

AMOLED is a great hardware solution though. If they only would be able to put the same energy and efforts into software... then maybe they could come a bit closer to the iPhone feeling. Even if they will definitely never ever reach this kind of level. Impossible. Not in a million years.

1) Dump your mobile phone division
2) Dump your useless R&D management system. I know you are not trying hard to correct it and truly want to abandon it, but then why are your trying to reinvent the wheel. It may work on your BADA os and make you rich--Definitely since the money from the fools taste great--but what you are foregoing is the millions you can make on android (SUCK THAT samsung fans).
3) Start working on redemption (get it out before the end of this year and redeem yourself you lousy liar company...!!!!).

Ok. Ofissial Finland has Froyo, BUT however its servers are down due some bugs on the update (example android market not found on phone) tough some people managed to download it.

To my broplemo... i didnt find option to install phone.
Now the plinking has stoped (maby due to latest kies)
but still the connection doesnt work.
Mass storage works.
next step unmount->mount->format, my sd memory after back up. Hope it works.
If not hmmm...
