Who Let This Happen?

As being an old phone dog myself and being in the wireless industry for a better portion of my adult life... I remember when 99.9% of cell phones were "candy bar" style and Motorola attempted to claim that the flip form and factor was their patent ... The absurdity of this claim was laughed out of litigation and was never taken seriously by the courts.... And now this happens?

Why Apple winning is good news for Android

1) Handset makers who are actually innovating get more attention. Aside from Samsung, every other handset manufacturer is suffering, yet they're the ones spending a lot of money on R&D to distinguish themselves.

2) Samsung will have to improve the quality of their devices, as it's no longer acceptable to make creaky cheap plastic knockoffs of the iPhone, slap on a iOS-mixed-with-typical-Samsung-bad-taste skin, and call it 'obvious.'

2) Android, which has already been veering away from iOS for a couple years now in terms of UI conventions, now has to remain fully committed to its own course (which I think it will be much stronger for.) Think about how much better 'Holo' apps looks now than the cruddy ones we saw back 2 years ago.

Running out of memory/deleting/moving to SDcard

I have downloaded several programs from the market and the phone works great, but I am running out of memory. (in the phone) Is there any way to move programs I use infrequently to the SD card and run them from there?

Also, I don't use twitter so twinkdroid and some other programs could go, but twinkdroid doesn't show up in my installed programs list, (maybe because it is a widget?) How can I delete these things to give me more space?

Samsung Galaxy Prevail

When I first bought the Galaxy Prevail I thought, "great, is has everything I need at such a good price!" Until.......a few days ago, when it started to re-boot over and over. It would turn off and on even when I am trying to make a call. It is getting really frustrating. I tried calling the Boost Call Care for tech advise and all I heard was "to re-boost or add money."
I went to their website and called the number they have posted for technical support...and got the same How can I get in touch with a real human being that can tell me how to fix the problem?
This on and off business really sucks! Mad

GPS Issues?

Can the author (or anyone else) comment on GPS performance? This has been a fatal flaw on most of the Samsung Galaxy S devices, but perhaps not on this one since it has little in common with the others.

Opinion from a authorized dealer

As a authorized dealer I am happy to have a Galaxy S.
Now as a Boost Customer.

Why the frak did Boost want a casterated version of this phone? 2MP camera 117MB onboard storage. No 4G 800Mhz CPU. What the hell..... Sprint need to understand that while Boost isnt the Premier brand Boost customers will pay up to 400 for a good phone.. eg i1. If you build it they will come. (Field of dreams)
