    ** Unofficial Release Install at Own Risk **

    Should be pretty good. Sounds like this was tagged with gold candidate code. Known Fixes and Issues below on next post. My 8900 has been pretty good with .144 so will see how this goes. Been pretty happy with 8900 all around so far.

    This is great information -- where did you get the release notes, and how come we can't get them for all OS updates?

    It's just you. A lot of the problems listed, you'll never encounter. That said, all devices have bugs. Especially new ones.

    Its good to see they are fixing these bugs quickly. I might not have come across them, but the phone isn't even released in the US officially and they are working overtime to iron the kinks out.

    Currently running .133 and am impressed at the battery changes and speed differences.

    Can't wait to upgrade to this

    I agree they do have bugs, just trying to justify money well spent on a product that is suppost to perform. Good to know that some of these won't be encountered rather could possibly happen, but not likely. thanks for your reply, I feel better about spending the money and getting the 8900 and it being up to expectation.
