GeorgeZ: Wow, since when does dpr report on cell phones? Especially the new super-high-end GN is a little disappointment camera-wise: only 5MP and no camera button. I know, 12MP isn't necessary (even if Nokia showed with the N8 it can be done well) but 5 is not a lot today. And the Galaxs S II has a very good 8MP sensor. And no real flash either....So photography-wise I'm not so thrilled, all the rest is tops, but should not be relevant on this page.
Feel free to send me lots of hate mail ... but I want to see smartphone camera coverage on DPReview ... I got into photography because of my iPhone ... so whatever phone I'll be using in the future, it has to have a kick-ass camera !!!
BBnose: Steve Jobs said "I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong," "I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this."Jobs left the words in anger in his biography.
So, how can we still buy the stolen product " Android "! No! At lease I can't.
just wanted to say ... in a sense Jobs was exactly like Edison ... Edison took already existing ideas and made it work ... Edison invented a lot less than he is credited for ...
abolit: Hey, Samsung ! Don't you think it's time to stop sniffing apple's ass and come up with something new? Apple will always be ahead because it does it first and it does it right. Please stop replicating iphone. Thanks!
@Doak ... Face recognition is already in Cydia store. The problem is that any face recognition can be easily fooled by a photo. It isn't a retina scan. And guess what, sandboxing has it's purpose.
You guys know very little about Jobs, Apple, NextSTEP ... Get your asses on Wikipedia before you diss Jobs. Apple Newton platform preceded Palm by a decade. GUI is an invention and Apple was the first one with a product on the market. And while Jobs did not invent GUI (Xerox did), Edison did not invent lightbulb, but his design was used for over 100 years.

Because Apple is a US company,looking to dominate the market
(globally as well as domestically)
Simple as that.
(Blackberry is Canadian, HTC Chinese, Samsung South Korean etc)
Considering Samsung's history of bullying suppliers (domestic and foreign) and opportunistic technology acquisitions (read "theft") not just in telecom and no respect for IP of design ... To me it is the ultimate in corporate scum.
Oh and let me remind you how Samsung put iPhone icons on Android phone. Blasphemy I tell ya.
Samsung never contributed anything to the world. It acquired bunch of patents through outsourcing deals ... from microwaves to telecom technology. Technologies based on research at western universities. Now Samsung is throwing it's weight around Biotech industry ... next thing you know fandroids will be saying how Samsung invented cure for cancer. And lets not forget how does Samsung treat their suppliers in Korea. I still wonder why does google keep partnering with Samsung?
Frankly if this was a Motorola-Google phone I'd seriously consider it.
