I've been trying to decide what phone to get next and since the S2 has been taking so long I'm thinking about get the Raider. So should I get the Raider now or wait for the S2?
What do you think?

so far everyone thats popped on here with the raider has liked it. Its actually starting to get me thinking of jumping off the list as well. again the only thing that the galaxy s has is NFC. The big advantage the Raider has, its out now and not coming soon in a maybe sorta soon way.
NFC is a key component of Android 4.0 allowing instant transfer between phones. Many merchants are set up for NFC in the Vancouver area already. I consider it a must have for my next phone.
What companies are set up for it? All I've read is there are some companies doing trial runs, so a few stores within the source chain are giving it a try? Sending info thru a bump like process virtually has zero importance to me, I just don't see where it would be all that valuable in that respect. As for the google wallet aspect, I absolutely love that and can't wait for wide spread acceptance, but I can guarantee that by the time that happens I will have new phone, but that's me. As far as I see NFC in it's current level with ICS will be more of cool thing to play around with and not overly valuable, unless there is an aspect I'm missing. Once the walmarts and macdonalds of the worlds are actively using this technology it won't be an aspect that will sway me one way or the other, as soon as that happens though, I will be upgrading, if I haven't already, to the lastest super phone.
