    That is just going to fragment the OS more.

    I really don't see how. We'll be seeing 1080p honeycomb tablets soon enough. Google TVs will run a variant of Ice-cream similar to the tablet version and we will have the mobile OS as well.

    Simple, isn't it.

    From the video, the UI is completely unsuitable for large displays, even at 1080p. Imagine trying to type on that...

    I purely like the multitouch screen of that size. This was a tech demo, not a product.
    No 32" screen should run Gingerbread/Froyo.

    If it shouldn't run gingerbread or 3.x versions, won't that lead to fragmentation?

    I didn't say it shouldn't run Honeycomb.
    Just chances are that Icecream (the Android defrager) will be out long before we see commercial iterations of these screens.

    Such a large screen shouldn't run the phone variant of the OS, that's just sense.

    Do you really think the tablet version could cover 9" screen and 30+" screens?

    It would need a different UI, of course.
    But apps would need very minimal differences if we assume the same resolution.

    Android? or TouchWiz2.0?

    I like Android 2.3.3 which I got on my phone. Still waiting for 2.3.4 to get from O2.
    I like it, not as difficult as people like to say.

    TOuchWiz2.0. I like it, it's hard to hate it. But it's real solid and I'm very happy.

    My basic advice, Blackberries or iPhones for women and really fashiony people. Android for men (Who enjoy messing about and learning about their phones). I spent days just messing about with my phone, settings, the way it worked, make sure its the way I LIKE IT.

    Great to hear since I'm hoping to get the S2 this week

    Thanks a lot

    Blackberries are for teenagers who simply get them for bbm and constantly need to chat to their mates even if their asleep. The phone itself isn't that good but is great for email of course.
