i dont care what form the GS2 comes in america, it just needs to hurry up and get here. The folks at XDA will make sure we get to "choose" our OS if we wanted too. lol. As long as the internals are the same between the android and windows version i dont think it will take them too long to be able to pull windows off and put android on or vice versa.

I could easily be persuaded to buy the WP7 GSII instead of an HTC dual core WP7 phone. I wonder which will come to Sprint first?

I am honestly about to jump up and down. All 4 devices are big displays, high resolution, and without a keyboard. There has to be at least one of them going to Sprint. Verizon and Sprint only got a device each for round one, but you do save the best for last, right? :p

Hey that Samsung Windows Phone 7 is a SEXY little beast. If it's a WP7 Galaxy S II that will be one heck of a phone. I want to hear more about THAT phone! It looked incredible!

Hell yeah! Can I get that with a 4G LTE radio for Verizon tomorrow? LOL

It'll be funny to see the working results of the top level hardware of the sg2 crippled with the w7 system

Im sure you have never really used a WP7, untill then you should stick to commenting on android specific posts.

@ TOM..... nice i agree WP7 is pretty awesome im sticking with android tho but WP7 is def a contender

You know W7 is becoming mainstream and respected when people start trolling just to toss around insults. Microsoft thanks you for your efforts, andro....

If I were you I'd wait till AFTER the holidays, unless the Arrive is cool with you. WP7 will have BEAST phones by end of this year/beginning of next year!
21. Dj21o (Posts: 437; Member since: 19 May 2011)
Oh I plan on one of these being my next device for sure. Screw the Arrive lol.

A WP7 SGSII would really help WP7 take off. I like the idea that in the future we might get to see manufacturers embracing the idea of the user choosing their preferred OS on their phones.

It would also help compare OS to OS running on the same exact hardware!
Although, come to think of it didn't the Galaxy S for Sprint have WiMax 4G and a front facing camera that the Galaxy S on other carriers didn't? not exactly the same specs, so much for isolating OS performance...
28. Forsaken77 (Posts: 553; Member since: 09 Jun 2011)
Yes it did.... the Epic 4G it was called. But when all 4 of the original Galaxy-S phones came out... the Epic was not 4G capable. It was a good 8 months later that they re-released it with 4G and the front camera. So they were equal in the beginning.

I hope mango has support for every tile to be a live tile. I used a focus for 4 months and had to get an android. I love wp7 os its very smart how common apps are built into the os but I couldn't stand looking at the non live tiles all one boreing color on the screen. Ms just needs to add some type of live function for each tile to make the ui look fun especially if their going to leave out backgrounds.
25. yougotkilled1 (Posts: 167; Member since: 27 Apr 2011)
^ I agree. It is quite boring without any live tile animation, but some people are able to look passed that. Mango should be an update for WP7 to really look forward to. I know I'm looking forward to it!
26. IEatApples (Posts: 66; Member since: 06 Jul 2011)
I will probably get another wp7 when mango and dual core hits the market. I think I remember hearing that more live tile support is coming on mango.
