PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Finally. Samsung has sent out the invites to a press event in London, May 3. This is going to be the launch of the successor to the highly successful Galaxy SII, and unlike with many other phone makers, very little is known about this new flagship device. As a very satisfied Galaxy SII/CM9 owner, I can't wait to see what Samsung has cooking for this one. It better shoot pink lazors.

Still no Stock Android, I assume?

Too bad it'll most probably be castrated by Samsung's TouchPiss UI again.

I played with the new HTC One X yesterday, and that inept Sense thing made everything look like a Windows/Gingerbread hybrid. Ugh!!

I wish Google would mandate all manufacturers to include some sort of "revert to stock" option, where you tick a box and reboot and the phone will do a jigglywhizz and revert everything to the standard Android build, removing OEM and carrier bloat in the process (preferably remove Carrier IQ or whatever spyware as well, but Google likes spying, so that's a longshot)

You satisfy the retarded carriers by shipping with a donkey UI, and you satisfy consumers by giving them the option to revert to stock.

It takes all of a minute to go the Market and install an alternative launcher. Please, enough with the whining.
