    So yesterday I found out that on July 11th Sprint will be releasing its second 4G Android device... it will known as the Samsung Galaxy S Pro... it will be exactly like the Galaxy S, but it will pack a 5 row QWERTY keyboard... what's best is that it will have the "Hummingbird" processor as opposed to the "Snapdragon". As you may know snapdragon graphics are 22million triangles per second, iPhone 3gs 28mil, psp 32mil, and ps3 250mil.... now the Samsung will have a whopping 90 million triangles per second fillrate... I will definitely be returning my EVO before my 30 days is up... Sprint has a new policy where your eligibility for your upgrade will return to the state it was at b4 u made the purchase... its like the hero and moment all over again for me... when hero came out I bought it and I don't like it cuz it was too slow so they returned it for me because it was within the 30 days and gave me an MOMENT which was must faster.. but since I got the EVO on launch on the 4th, I must return it b4 the 4th of next month and go back to my moment for about a week... I am perfectly fine with that as long I will be getting this Humminbird SuperAMOLED beast of a phone... WHO'S IN WITH ME ON THIS ONE?

    It may not be the release date. It might be the announcement date. Keep in mind that EVO was announced long before it was released.

    Great to have more 4G options on Sprint either way.

    The videos I've seen comparing a TFT vs Super AMOLED are pretty compelling. I will wait to read more about the Galaxy and whether the issue I am having with the evo is resolved before making a final decision.

    Yea could you post your source on the release date. As for the phone itself, the galaxy looks great. I favor physical keyboards to software keyboards but i do not like landscape ones. I like my pre keyboard or blackberry keyboards. I also worried about touchwiz. I'm hearing bad reports on it. Is touchwiz similar to what the instinct had? If so, I am not a fan of it. As of right now, Imma stick to the Evo

    I've been patiently waiting for the Evo since my contract isn't up until August 1st. If this phone is out by then I'll have a tough choice to make, but since I don't like landscape physical keyboards too much, the turning point for me will be dimensions. If they squeeze that keyboard in there and make the thing thin and sleek and if it just plain looks/feels fantastic, then I'll give it heavy consideration. Having beefier internals will also help, but if it's bulky and ugly because of the keyboard then I'll make the sacrifice and stick with the Evo. Also is the screen 4" like the Galaxy S?

    Samsung makes great phones..(they dont update them to often) I had a Impression, for a non-smart phone it was a beast( the best of any non-smart, and even some smart)

    I dont think you will have to many problems with Samsung, their WiFi works great!

    Alot of people are feeling that the EVO is not performing well, some are just insulting others to cover that fact up.

    How is the Evo not performing? It is faster than either my Palm Pre or my friend's iPhone 3GS and faster than a nexus One I was playing with. I don't have any of the screen issues, battery issues, or wifi issues people have been reporting. It has been flawless for me.

    I think one concern about the Galaxy S Pro is how thick it will be with that side slider. The Evo is big but doesn't feel too big due to its thinness imo.

    True the Galaxy S Pro will be a little on the thick side, but most likely the phone won't weigh too much, considering the Galaxy S is super light to begin with.

    I would sacrifice the slight bulkiness for a faster CPU anyday... I am a gamer

    See this is the awesome part about being with Sprint. $70 unlimited everything except 450 minutes landline....big deal, I keep my EVO and later upgrade to the next gen phone since I will be eligible for upgrade again within a year. There is always going to be a better phone I really don't have any problems with the phone and I don't use them for gaming neither...thats what my Gaming computer is for
