    Well, the Telus Facsinate 3G+ or whatever got a Gingerbread update. Why not us?

    Seriously. Aren't they basically the same phone on a different network? Or do they actually have different hardware?

    No, the Telus Fascinate is a GSM version, basically like the Vibrant for T-Mobile. Not like our Fascinate at all

    The EC09 leak showed they are working on it, but I think we won't hear anything about it until the SGSII is out...

    The EH09 leak/build for the Mesmerize is working on the Fascinate (with EC09 radio), so I would have to assume that it's coming soon.

    I'm using the powerwashed gb rom now & loving it. An occasional screen freeze is the only problem I have encountered so far.

    They say we're getting it but won't say when. They keep saying "stay tuned". IMO, it implies it could be soon.

    No SGS2 on Verizon so you will have to switch carriers if you want it.

    Where's the logic in the largest carrier not providing the best selling android phone on earth?

    Kind of confirms the rumors of Verizon getting the Nexus Prime (or Droid Prime or whatever they are going to name it), so obviously Verizon felt no need to get SGS2 if they are going to get the next Nexus phone. Stupid thinking in my opinion as not everyone may want a Nexus AOSP phone. I would think having both options would be in Verizon's best interest, but I'm no business or marketing genius.

    It could be that they're anticipating offering both of the top-tier phones, the Prime and iPhone5, so don't need to fill the livery with another mid-range option.

    Don't really know what their ROI has been with mid-range offerings to date, but it could be that they don't have much demand for that segment. Probably a case of extremes, where they sell many low-end and many high-end, but not much in between...

    I would hardly call the SGS2 a mid-range phone

    even if gbread drops, it will take three or more updates before it works how it should. It took err..3 or more releases for them to get Froyo working as it should on this phone.. and my feelings that Froyo to Gbread is much weaker update than Eclair to Froyo I think are still valid. I am not dying to get Gbread, but I couldn't wait to get Froyo. Thats why I even exist in this forum.

    The Nexus Prime and SGII are and will be very nice handsets, however, I still have a year until upgrade. I am banking that my next handset will have a quad core 2+ GHZ processor, Super AMOLED + screen, and 4g standard. May just be wishful thinking, but hey who knows..
