Why? They want to pimp one phone at a time. People come into upgrade eligiblity constantly. By releasing a new Android phone every month or so, they can keep up the public awareness and get people to recontract.Droid Incredible (4/29/10) -> TBolt (4/9/11) -> GNex (4/1/2012) > Droid Maxx (9/13/13)

I also played with the vibrant yesterday, and I gotta tell ya, I wasn't impressed with the UI. The phone itself was fantastic and a joy to behold, beautiful screen, smooth gaming, but I don't know about it. It felt like it was trying to be an iPhone.

I personally enjoyed Samsung's live wallpapers. Better then Sense and Motos stupid red eye.
The icons and horizontally scrolling app drawer are a bit too iphoney but there is always root and roms for that. If you don't like the Ui and are to scared or non technical to root then buy another device.

i've always had very good luck with samsung phones i've owned in the past. i hope there isn't too much of a lag between this coming out and the droid 2 in august. i would like to get another "easily" or at least ready to root phone for verizon. plus the graphics processor and the screen seem to be better than motorola's latest so that will be a plus as well.
