Samsung Galaxy S II US release date set for August

Land of the free and home of the brave, America is, but sadly that doesn't include Samsung's latest brave flagship, the Galaxy S II. We've been waiting for the dual-core phone for months, but now the end of the waiting is near…

I totally agree!! This is total bs as far as I'm concerned. Phone Arena should really work on their titles a little better because they're extremely miss leading. When you go out and title an article "Samsung Galaxy S II US release date set for August" that implies that there is a release date set, which clearly there is not. All this article tells us is that we now have to sit around waiting for another month or maybe even a little longer because last time I checked there are 31 days in August, so who the hell really knows which day it will drop. This is pretty crappy of Samsung if you ask me. While the rest of the world gets to sit back and enjoy this little engineering marvel the rest of us in the US have to just sit back with our fingers crossed. That is total bs!! We can only hope that all this wait is for something special like an upgraded processor such as a 1.4GHz Dual Core. One can only hope....

Sammy really screwed us over stateside but I imagine it has to do with the carriers to some degree as well. Either way I just want to buy a different phone out of spite at this point. HTC step in at any time and make something worth drooling over for Verizon who incidentally has the worst phone lineup I've seen.

I agree about going with another device just out of spite right about now, but it's hard when AT&T doesn't have many options either. I would much rather be with Verizon and if there plans where a little more reasonable then I would switch in a heart beat! They have more to choose from then AT&T right now though. Anyways I am just keeping my fingers crossed that HTC drops something soon that will be just as good and I would much rather go that route myself seeing how their hardware just seems to be much better quality then that of Samsung and they seem to have a sleek elegance about their devices as well. Not to mention I am a big fan of the notification light since I used to be a BlackBerry user and it came in very handy.

No word on a T-mobile version, but the way things are headed you may as join AT&T seeing how its just a matter of time before the merger becomes finalized. :) Then again you could always go ahead and enjoy the new HTC Sensation, which is a pretty sweet device and its actually already available. :) If I had T-mobile I wouldn't sit around waiting for another month that's for sure. I would just go with the HTC, which has a pretty nice new and improved UI.

well jobby jobs will be kicked to the curb shortly and some blackberry crappy type of CEO will step in and tear the rotten apple to pieces as far as innovation and sales. So anyone who has apples stock, i would unload it before they make any shocking announcements, just saying. FYI the water cooler says, buy GOOG. eh emm. GOOD DAY FANBOYS!!!

It may just be a faulty set for you. Galaxy S II is the best phone out in the market and i doubt people are going to wait another month to buy one after Apple sued Samsung and made us wait even more.

I'm thinking because of fragmentation this phone will not come out soon enough before the Nexus 3 because of it's lack of carrier fragmentation for me to get it. I'll wait the extra month or 2 for the Nexus 3. US cellular carries are their own worst enemies.
