White Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket arriving on AT&T just in time for the holidays
The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket was among the first LTE-enabled handsets on AT&T, and with its thin profile and dual-core chip, the only thing it was missing was... a white paint job. Well, at least that would have been nice and we can see how many would go for the white version. It seems that AT&T and Samsung also think this way, and the companies have announced that a white Skyrocket is landing on the carrier just in time for the holidays.

The pale Galaxy S II Skyrocket will arrive on the carrier on December 4th and is expected to retail for $249.99 with a contract, the same price as the original, dark version of the handset.

The Skyrocket features a 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen with resolution of 480x800 pixels. It’s powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p videos on the back. Most importantly, it rides AT&T's newly established LTE network spanning across 15 US metros.

with AT&T, having LTE is non sensical.. 2GB of data with 5-6mpbs will be out within a week or 2.. and we all know AT&T's overage pricings are.. good luck with your bill..

I don't understand the argument that because you have a faster data connection you use more data...

I use basically the same amount of data on my LTE connection than I did with 3G, it's just faster.

Yes, I use my mobile hotspot feature on my TB but that's billed separately.

^ The reason why I didn't go out and grab the skyrocket. Rather have the Exynos chip than LTE. That's just me though =P
