Take this for what it's worth since you're hearing it from me, and not an official link. I understand I could be completely making this up, but I only come here to hopefully give you, my fellow BH2 owners out there something to look forward to. While in TMobile today, I was chatting with the manager who helped me decide on the BH2. It just so happened that his Samsung rep had just left and gave him some good news.

Originally, I thought he had told me the BH2 would be going from 1.5 to 2.x, however, the BH2 has two upcoming changes.
First, we will be getting a minor change to fix the battery issues. The battery indicator will be more accurate, and they will be adjusting some software issues to increase the battery life. Great news. This should be very soon since the reps recently got the email.
Second, and no later than two months away, we will be getting 1.6. Not 2.0 or 2.1. 1.6 is apparently the most stable Android software out there at the moment, which is why 2.1 is still a ways out. Don't expect to ever see 2.0 on your BH2 because 2.0 is terrible software and Tmobile has no intentions of pushing that on their phones. 2.1 will most likely come after 1.6.
This is according to a Samsung rep who received an email from his superiors. Take it for what it's worth, but I am looking forward to the BH2 future. Now BH2 owners will have the best Android phone with stable software. Can't wait!
