The HW version in the video was a very early revision. S2 will have wifi. With S2 you won't have to go back to the store and get new devices because such and such doesn't work right. SurePress/TruePress has be refined and polished. It works much much better than the original and typing is so much faster. Much.
The SW you saw in the video was very very early. S2 uses 5.1 and the version in the video was .9. Obviously one of the very first builds made for this device. S2 is now up to and past 18.104.22.168, so you can imagine how the SW dev has progressed. This device will be right when its released. :)

Thanks Crucial for the update. Good to hear for all those planning on picking this up.
Did anyone notice kevins video has been pulled off youtube for a "copyright claim by Research In Motion" lol i dont think they wanted us to see it yet :P
I'm sure RIM enjoys the BB fan base but they also need to keep their edge so that the Apple Toy Company doesn't have time to tweak anything before their launch.
Also the OS is older and accelerometer sucked on it :DQuote:

I watched the video. It still took just as long to rotate to landscape. That is a very bad sign.
I found the leaked video to a benefit to those who want to see that RIM is focused on enhancing their touch screens. Apple has ways of dealing with their leaks and/or lost devices and so we never see these "incremental" upgrades until they are ready.
RIM is on the right track, it will a great device.
