Samsung Galaxy S (Captivate) will never see the official release. AT&T will make sure of that.

Negative comments are negative.

Meh, it isn't really much better...had it on my droid for a while now, and I am thinking of going back to Froyo because the custom interfaces are more polished and it uses the battery less. The only advantage is Netflix...and you need to be rooted to get that, and if you are rooted, you can already get 2.3 anyway.
