Samsung has announced that the successor to the Galaxy S will be unveiled at the MWC next month. It will ship with Gingerbread and a dual core. Fantasy: Samsung allows all Galaxy S owners to upgrade for a reduced fee due to their inability to provice a decent model of Froyo. Yes, I know I'm taking too much medication. I'm just sick of watching the greatest phone I've ever owned getting passed by again and again. Discounted like 80's spandex.

On a more serious note, how long does it typically take devices announced at MWC to make it into the market? Isn't Sprint pretty consistent in releasing new devices in the summer?
I still have a week to return my Epic, and I could possibly wait out a few months on my Pre if something could be released as early as March...

Now, if it'll be June before anything new hits on Sprint, then I wouldn't want to give up that much time of productive use....

By that time, certainly, our annual upgrades should be available...

I wouldn't give up on the Epic at this point. I have made the mistake of giving up on other phones in the past only to be surprized that the update that I impatiently waited for came and fixed all the issues that I was screaming about. I would inevitably regret getting rid of the device and would ironically be stuck with a device that also had issues and I would have to wait for the update on that phone. I would just wait it out. It will come and when it does, you will be happy.

For all of the folks who upgraded around the time the Epic launched I wouldn't even worry. If you're on the one year upgrade cycle you can hold out until then and buy whatever is the hotness around that time. Phone tech is really starting to explode faster than ever before and if you keep worrying about every new device you'll either waste money or live unsatisfied. I personally rooted and loaded a Froyo ROM, and made my Epic what I wanted it to be not what Samsung would like me to be content with.
