    After the Galaxy Nexus, what Samsung phones may appear on T-Mobile or Verizon with an Exynos processor, and roughly when are they expected to ship? T-Mobile will likely only support an Exynos-based phone if Exynos is updated to support HSPA+ 42. So does that mean waiting for a 4212-based phone? Sounds like TouchWiz 3.0 + Exynos-based phones are the only ones that support UI hardware acceleration using the GPU, along with NEON instructions, to minimize UI lag, while stock Android may not get something similar until Jellybean, which I suspect will be long after 4212-based phones arrive. May have to resort to getting the Spring Galaxy S 2 Epic Touch if the wait will be too long, though would rather have T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network reliability.

    I am excited about the HD resolution screen, 1280×720 and Super Amoled on top.

    If t-mo gets this phone, which looks likely, does anyone think it would have wifi calling added?  Or would this violate the pure android experience metaphor?

    The only thing I wish Google added to ICS is the ability to change icons so I wouldn’t have to use ADW. I love the Minimal Text Icon app on my homescreen. Nice clean look and people really are wowed by how unique my phone looks. T-Mo better get this phone! 

    Off the subject but has anyone else had the Vibrant randomly take screen shots out of the blue? Once in a while I press the home button to exit an app and it will take a screen shot instead. I can’t figure out how to do on purpose and from what I know it isn’t even supposed to be able to do it all.
