Samsung Galaxy S - US Release Date


Recommended Posts


I just pre-ordered the Epic 4G version from Sprint and I'll be picking it up the day of release on Tuesday August 31. I wasn't able to find any "deals," however Radio Shack will offer to buy your old phone so that took a good $100 off of the price for me.

Before you serious start to use it, a few things you need to be told of:


- Froyo (android 2.2) is coming. Dont get to the tweaking and lagfixing and gps fixing just yet, wait for Froyo;

- Install LauncherPro Plus. Its a homescreenreplacement. Free version is great, but the Plus version is better, and got scrollable widgets. And the dev guy is just asking a few bucks, he's doing it all by himself as a full job. Very great updates and buzzing community.

- Get all your extras from ebay, and dont get yourself ripped in the stores, paying the full price.


But thats just my two cents. :D
