Samsung Galaxy S II confirmed for July touch down at Verizon (UPDATE: It was a miscommunication)
An email from a Verizon spokeswomen to ComputerWorld confirms that Big Red will be launching the Samsung Galaxy S II sometime next month. The handset is considered one of the best if not the best smartphone currently available, and as we reported, is ultimately expected to launch on 3 of the top 4 U.S. carriers with only T-Mobile expected to be left out. The phone will be known as the Samsung Galaxy S II Function at Verizon. The email said that the phone would be released in July but added that there is no exact launch date just yet.

With a 1.2GHz dual-core processor making sure that the phone is humming, the Galaxy S II is equipped with a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus display. An 8MP camera around the back captures video at 1080p while a 2MP front facing camera is useful for self-portraits and video chats (remember when 2MP cameras were on the back of a handset?). Android 2.3.3 is pre-installed with TouchWiz on top.  With a sleek and slim body, the Samsung Galaxy S II has scored some amazing numbers on the Quadrant Benchmark test and videos of its super speedy browser have been a mainstay on YouTube for a couple of months.

The news that Verizon will be offering its version of the Samsung Galaxy S II is bound to electrify Big Red's customers. Although the phone will not be enabled for the LTE 4G network, it probably won't matter to potential buyers as the device has already proven itself to be speedy over 3G pipelines.

After all this, guess what? There was a miscommunication and the device actually coming out in July at Verizon is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, not the Samsung Galaxy S II. Apparently, someone at Verizon goofed. Nevermind!
