Hey great news for anyone who gets this phone. Personally I think the Samsung Prime looks like a better choice, but to each is own!

More like weeks. October's the latest guess. I'm sure more will leak out about it in the next few weeks.

Now that it's been rooted, we just need the bootloader unlocked.

There has been no confirmation if this phone is a Global phone. Is it?

Android Central posted a dummy phone compared to the TBolt, Droid Charge, and Revolution. The Bionic actually has a screen size exactly the same as the TBolt, Height and Width. I still think the SGS2 has the edge.

we get it Rory, you like the Galaxy S II more now shut up. some of us still want LTE on a phone supposedly with great battery life and the next most powerful processor next to Exynos. there's fair trade offs here.

The Bionic has a GSM/WCDMA radio. It's a world phone.

That came out in the FCC filing.
