AT&T's version of the Samsung Galaxy S II revealed on Samsung's Facebook page

While it won't make Verizon customers any happier, for some strange reason, the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, the most eagerly awaited smartphone since, well, the Apple iPhone 3G, is pictured on Samsung Mobile's Singapore Facebook page. The AT&T Attain, with the carrier's branding clearly visible, is seen nestled into a desktop dock as if it were a common everyday sight. The pictures reveal both HDMI and 3.5mm audio jacks.
Not a word was said about the device on the site, and to be honest, it looks like the photographs were designed to show off the accessories to the phone. In fact, the caption for the picture doesn't even mention the AT&T Attain and merely says, "Samsung GALAXY S II Desktop Dock
ECR-D1A2BEGSTD RRP: $68".
Seeing is believing and it where there is smoke , there is fire. Two great sayings that apply in both the faulty Verizon email and this picture of the Attain. It would appear that the U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S II is very close to coming over Stateside. After all, there really is no way that AT&T or Samsung can claim that this is a misunderstanding.
For those of you thinking that the picture is that of the Samsung Infuse 4G, the power button is a bit different than the one on the 4.5 inch device which can be seen when you look at the second picture below

It will still be able to run on the LTE network when they get that up and running this summer. So will the Motorola Atrix and the HTC Inspire.

When the Atrix came out they said that it would be LTE compatible with a few minor updates. I think that no one really paid much attention to that though because they were focusing on the dual-core processor and lapdock.

This is the Samsung infuse and that dock is available at your local at&t store...galaxy s 2 has a push button for home. I say this as a galaxy s II owner and at&t employee.

Well done Sammy! Glad to see you ditched the hardware home key, even though it probably has more to do with the Apple suit than my personal preferences. The departure from the classic 4 cap/touch buttons was my only gripe about the gs2. A lot of people complained about them ditching the search button on the euro release as well. Now it's just up to AT&T to announce the damn thing so I can mark my calender. Since they know this will instantly make the short lived Infuse 4G obsolete, my bet is they they hold off until another carrier announces it so they can clear their inventory before having to cut prices.

Not only the Galaxy 2, but the LG Thrill, and two dual-core HTC offerings later in the year (Holiday and Lead) will put the Infuse and the HTC Inspire down several notches. (But, at least those two offerings will still be better then the "tier 2" smartphones like the Crossover or LG's Phoenix or Thrive.) What a fun choice.

***eats his shoe*** I stand corrected. If you actually look at the other images on the fbook gallery you can clearly see the home button on the retail packaging for this dock. Damn you for raising my hopes of a seamless/buttonless interface. Guess I'll have to live w/o the search button.

Just wanted to point this out: Look at picture #2, notice the side buttons on the stand. Look at picture #1, notice the side buttons on the stand are now gone. Or if you are viewing on Facebook, compare pics 3 to 4. My hopes are that the GS2 is around the corner like everyone else waiting for this phone, but noticing that these pics might have been photo-shopped hurts me deeply...
