    The link for samsung kies is of older version. If we install and try to update it first asks to update Kies and then proceed to firmware upgrade. I have installed, re installed Kies several times in last 24 hrs as it just stops at Preparing firmware update components and does not proceed further. Lucky you who were able to get GingerBread with Kies.

    Updated to gingerbread. (2.3.5).
    Better performance and responsiveness increased… don’t know y?
    Swype gets a beautiful update and is now more fun to use.
    dont see any major improvement in user interface.
    But colour scheme of notification bar is all change and looks better.
    I hope samsung release the touchwiz 4.0 for Galaxy SL.
    Which will make using this phone more better.

    I updated my phone. GTalk and Skype video call doesn’t work. Performance is better. Couldn’t find the promised improved keypad. If anyone could see the changed keypad please report.

    1 day using 2.3.5
    Better performance, better battery backup , Very Few changes in user interface though the notifications bar is cool with green highlights. Need more improvements. Also the screen animations seem more or less inspired from I-phone . Still can do better.

    when I connect to KIES the message occurs that your phone does not support the update?
    why is it so?

    I have updated my phone last night and found one issue: try to disable data network using power off button .. after 45mins-1hr enable it again using power off button n see it wont enable n wont show gprs E on the top status bar.. need to restart ur phone everytime.. use POWER OFF BUTTON to enable/disable

    – gtalk video chat doesnt work even though its 2.3.5
    – Battery backup is better than froyo
    – vertical scroll will highlight blue color if its end of list
    – Main page will horizontally take you to the first page (screens scroll circularly)

    If i find any other change will update, please share your feedback too
