When my Inspire 4G contract expires, I'll be getting this or the next in the Galaxy S line.

Android 2.3 is Gingerbread. 3.0 is Honeycomb, and designed for tablets.

At this point it is still unsure as we have no US info so far. However, the international version that is already out in the UK and South Korea is 100% compatible with AT&T's bands including 3G and 4G. You can buy one overseas and have it shipped here and it will work, no unlocking necessary.

As with the original Galaxy S, if Verizon and/or Sprint pick this model up they will be sure to add support for CDMA bands, so no worries. Just wait for announcement.

So far the only info we have is Q3 this year after a release in Canada. However, as usual that can all change.

Is it Q3 calendar year? If so that should line up with my 2 year renewal very well.

Heard somewhere they'd be available in the states by June. Anyways, this will most likely be my next phone.

Probably, but I cant be too sure.
Apparently Nvidia took out the NEON set and went with a FPU which ARM gave all the manufactures the option to choose, Neon, or the less powerful FPU. Nvidia chose the FPU because according to them, the 30% die space of the NEON does not make sense.
according to anandtech

While all Cortex A8 designs incorporated ARM’s SIMD engine called NEON, A9 gives you the option of integrating either a SIMD engine (ARM’s Media Processing Engine, aka NEON) or a non-vector floating point unit (VFPv3-D16). NVIDIA chose not to include the A9’s MPE and instead opted for the FPU. Unlike the A8’s FPU, in the A9 the FPU is fully pipelined - so performance is much improved. The A9’s FPU however is still not as quick at math as the optional SIMD MPE. NVIDIA claims implementing MPE would incur a 30% die penalty for a performance improvement that impacts only a minimal amount of code. It admits that at some point integrating a SIMD engine makes sense, just not yet.

I just remembered that tegra 2 cant play High profile 1080p. It can play regular main profile 1080p though according to people on xda
