    The OEM one will be released in September too (well, we all know how tentative dates from manufacturer’s go), why would we want to go aftermarket instead of OEM Samsung? People have been modifying their devices since it was released with the Palm TouchStone, so if they wait a little longer for OEM, I think it would be worth it…. unless Sammy decides to charge something ridiculous for it like they did with the GNex pogo dock!
