Why the F isn't 2.3 available 4 Galaxy since it launched on Samsung Nexus S already?

The Nexus S is built by Samsung.
It's running the same hardware that the Epic 4G does.
The Epic 4G was released FIVE months ago.
The Evo has had 2.2 available for months and even the Shift just launched with 2.2.

PLEASE tell me that Samsung is skipping right over 2.3 and going to 2.3 for the Epic.

If not, this is COMPLETE BULL$HIT.





And, NO, I don't want to flash, root, or customize my phone.
I spend over $100 a month for service and pay retail prices for phones.
My responsibility should end when I swipe my credit card.

what? you didn't read the samsung press release last week saying they were happy with the way the galaxy phones performed and there was no need to update them further and if consumers wanted a newer OS they should look into the newer phones coming out.

I hope that was sarcasm. If not, please point me to that press release. I will use it to get a refund of my Captivate so I can switch to Verizon.

it was sarcasm but then i found this, it affects the tmobile vibrant but you have to wonder if its going on with the other galaxy phones as well.

Samsung keeps up with it's long line of not upgrading phones!

I just talked to my Samsung rep the other day about an update to Froyo for the Vibrant and sounds like it won't happen until AFTER the new Vibrant comes out around June. I wouldn't be surprised if that is the case for all galaxy phones.

And that's the question I need hel with because I have to answer ASAP:

Does the Epic 4g's 4", SAMOLED, Hummingbird, and Front Facing Camera outweight the Evo SHift's potential software support from HTC and the DEV community ?????

Thanks.
