Update from ComputerWorld: This story originally said that Verizon Wireless expected to make the Galaxy S II smartphone available sometime in July. After the story appeared, the Verizon spokeswoman quoted in the story said she was incorrect and meant that Samsung Galaxy Tab would appear in July. She didn’t comment on whether the carrier is making the smartphone available next month.
Mobile World Congress brought one of the most anticipated devices of the year, the Samsung Galaxy S II. The device’s popularity quickly gained momentum and reached the top of our wish lists, with some of the most groundbreaking specs of this year (at least for now).
This device will be among the best phones in the market, upon its release. Featuring specs like a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, front and rear cameras, a stunning Super AMOLED Plus display, and its amazing design, this device is sure to bring some good competition to other manufacturers. But when is it going to be released in the U.S.?
The Samsung Galaxy S II was first released in South Korea, but before today, we had no idea when it would be reaching the U.S. According to the guys at Droid-Life, a Verizon spokeswoman has stated that they are planning to have the Samsung Galaxy S II for sale by July (no specific date given), which is actually sooner than expected.
Though we wish we could have more details about the release date (and whether it will have 4G LTE connectivity or not), at least we know that the Samsung Galaxy S II is about to reach the U.S. There is also no word on the Samsung Galaxy S II versions for the other carriers, but we can assume that the competition won’t lag too much. For now, Verizon users can have something to look forward to until next month. Any Verizon users out there getting this?
