Sounds amazing, I'll have a look although I doubtn't I could get a phone without a hardware keyboard.
Trust me mate I was the same (coming from a Motorola Milestone) and while I do miss it, you just get used to not having one. The Gingerbread keyboard is good, and you just need to practise.

2 questions.
Is the screen as responsive as an iphone? Does it have that 'instant stuck to your finger quality' that apple seem to have got so right

Do you know how many simultaneous touch position are supported? There are touch screen diagnostic apps that exercise the screen, the iphone was 4, my milestone only 2
Instantly responsive, stuck to finger.

As for multitouch points... is 10+ enough? http://domarmstrong.blogspot.com/201...uch-tests.html

Re: Samsung Galaxy S II i9100... new Android beast of a phone about to be released.

Is there a way to support two SIM cards in the phone through an adapter? It doesn't have to be active, I'm happy with manual switching (just, I don't want to have to carry 2 phones).

Yes, same ones as in use for other phones, requires cutting etc I think. You'll need to research them yourself though.

When is it coming Castro? I will have to take a quick trip upto Basel to have a play
It should be coming sometime this week In the end I decided to stick with Orange since they offered me an early upgrade, Swisscom was just too uncompetitive and inflexible for my liking.

Log into your account and check the 'My Offers' page. My contract ends mid-August so it was almost 3 months early.

Why? To see if you can order it with the Samsung Galaxy SII i9100?

If you want, I can do a market research.... need some sponsors though!

Orange says I have to wait until the start of August for an early upgrade

I guess it will put me in a good position to choose between this, the sensation and the new iPhone

Re: Samsung Galaxy S II i9100... new Android beast of a phone about to be released.

Absolutely no regrets, but 220 for the previous Galaxy S is an absolute bargain it suddenly makes the Orange San Fran look its price.

Also SGS2 on mobiles.co.uk is only 25 pounds per month for 24 months with a one off charge of 45 quid!
