Hope they release a Wave 3, but probably will be the Galaxy S2.

bah, between a Wave and a SGS2, the wave has no chance.. sorry peter. Bada seems nice but its going to be a good while before it catches on.. if at all.

I know that the Galaxy S2 has better specs than the wave. I do think though that the upcoming wave 3 will have the same specifiactions as the Galaxy S2.

Also the possibility it might be known as the Stratosphere on Verizon. Guess we'll find out in a few weeks.

It'd be great for Moto to have some competition on Verizon.

the Stratosphere is the Slider that's been leaked.

tack on another 2 weeks after that for release because the 2 1/2 weeks is just for the announcement. itll be at least a month from now before we actually see this phone if not later.

why you be hating on Samsung Gallito?
i hope they make a deal with skullcandy/Bose instead of snoop dogg... i prefer Lil' Wayne and Eminem.

lol that would be a perfect picture.

Obviously you didn't see new TW 4.0 on SGS2. It's completely different than older ones and looks even better than Sense to me.

jinwons you cant expect haters to actually do any kind of research or anything. I mean people still hate on Motorola for the Devour.

Not only has Samsung been using metal like back covers but they also use Gglass while others don't.

Plus Samsung's new UI is much more smooth and responsive than the other UIs. That's why so many people are drooling over the Galaxy S 2.

Agree with you on the good quality on Samsung phones. both my wave and wave 2 are made of metall and glass. And the bada UI is very smooth and fast.

I actually prefer the plastic builds. It has a gorrilla glass face and a lightweight body. Your going to put a case on it anyways so you will never feel those so called "premium" materials (that cost an extra $.05 on the phone.. wooo). Most cases are made out of plastics and rubbers anyways. So unless you just like a heavy phone as some do, your waisting your time worrying about if its plastic or aluminum.

I love poking that point to people that dis on samsung for using plastic while they praise apple for using.. glass.. lol... or HTC for using aluminum.
The plastic is more durable than both of those, and if your going to put a case on it, you will never notice the difference anyways.

So stoked. Was gonna hold out for a dual-core w/ slide out QWERTY but I don't know if I'll be able to resist.

It has to be "Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus" not the regular "Samsung Galaxy S2" to compete with A-5 which is coming out around the same time. what do you guys think?.

Is the WiFi on this phone Built-in?
So, say my bill can out to be $674.87 and figured, "The hell with that" ...pay $200.00 to terminate my contract, figure out how the hell to pay for what I owe...........and use my Optimus S, simply for games, Facebook..Will the WiFi still turn on?
