New ad shows that the Samsung Galaxy S II won't leave you in the cold
The latest commercial for the Samsung Galaxy S II shows off a feature called "Voice Talk" that will allow users to send a text without using their hands. The ad highlights how handy this feature could be if you are caught in the Antartica or in Green Bay during the NFL playoffs, and you need to pass along the word to your buddy Nanuk that you are stranded.

Before the Samsung Galaxy S II, you would have to struggle with numb, useless fingers. But the handset allows you to open the text application, dictate the message, and send it all by using your voice.

As we have reported, the device is set to launch in the U.K. on May 1st. While at the current time there is no word on a U.S. release for the Samsung Galaxy S II, it is expected that the Korean based manufacturer will not leave the States out in the uh...cold.

After Samsung fiasco of installation Froyo on Fascinate, Samsung can forget about selling that one to me. F. it...I had to root me Fascinate to get a Froyo on it. Samsung most defiantly will leave you out in the cold.

FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS BUY SAMSUNG!!!

Dude, you're in America and yet you don't know that it's the carriers' fault that handsets are getting very late OS updates? The original Samsung Galaxy S without any carrier crap is already receiving it's Gingerbread update. Yes, Samsung pulled it off earlier this week but they are resuming the updates as we speak today.

The facinate sucked there's no doubt about it but samsung has really improved. There other phones were good that just messed up by putting the worst galaxy on the biggest carrier (verizon). Almost any droid was better than it. I do like their interface that's over android though. I do think they have the best tablets, but I will only either get The Bionic(now Targa) or this phone if it comes to the US. Those will be the best phones of 2011 hands down

The bionic is going to be powered by the Tegra 2 if I'm not mistaken, witch is an amazing chip-set. But don't be fooled Samsung is not falling behind, they're S II is gonna have the powerhouse Eynox (http://phandroid.com/2011/03/04/samsung-exynos-4210-galaxy-s-ii-chipset-rocks-in-3d-gaming-showcase/ ) hands down the best chip-set on the market right now.

Tegra 2 vs Eynox both are killer at multitasking with they're Dual Cores, both are great at gaming. Actually some of the S II might be shipping with Tegra 2 according to a leak saying that Samsung wont be able to produce enough of they're chip-sets to accommodate all of the pre-oders and release phones.
