Samsung Galaxy S II sign-up page closer to being live for U.S. fans
A lot of information about the U.S. iteration of the Samsung Galaxy S II has been released over the last few days. We have passed along what apparently are pictures of the AT&T version of the phone, the Samsung Galaxy Attain, complete with a side sliding QWERTY. We also showed you a prototype of the same model sans the QWERTY, and another picture of what could be the version of the phone for Sprint.

Another sign that we are getting close to the U.S. launch of the hottest smartphone on the planet is Samsung's U.S. web site. Search for the Galaxy S II on the Korean manufacturer's web site, and instead of being told that no such phone exists, you are sent to a placekeeper page for the Galaxy S II sign-up site. Unfortunately, the sign-up page is not yet live.  But soon, you will be able to register your email address with Samsung and get the word when the handset becomes available for your carrier (assuming you are not a T-Mobile customer). Note that the placeholder page has the first image of the Galaxy II on the Korean manufacturer's U.S. site. Does that picture of the Samsung Galaxy S II look like the AT&T or Sprint models to you?

Well since AT&T got screwed with a keyboard version, I would say that looks like a Sprint phone to me. :)

How did AT&T NOT screw up is the question. You have a 4.3" screen and you want a keyboard? The Epic was a monster with a 4" screen and I gave it up because of the keyboard. 1. The buttons didn't hit for me half of the time. And 2, the mechanism was completely loose within 3-6 months. I replaced mine because I thought it was a defective. So yeah, I want one WITHOUT A KEYBOARD. :)

A physical keyboard is a plus! Faster typing, and much better for playing games on. (especially for emulators!)

Dj, they are releasing one with and without a keyboard. And I cannot believe you'd switch carriers just because it had a keyboard.

I would, actually I take that back, I would NOT buy that phone if it had a physical keyboard. No thanks to bulk and no thanks to 20th century typing. But then again I don't have AT&T&T-mobile. But if I did, I'd wait for the Nexus 3 if the SGS2 had a keyboard.

Noooo I have Sprint, had it for 7+ years now. And I didn't see anyone else have the "luck" (if that's what you want to call it) of having a keyboard... AT&T got boned IMO.

I am praying dearly that the Sprint version doesn't have that huge ugly button in the middle. 4 capacitive buttons, please!

+1, but it wouldn't stop me at all from getting the phone lmao.

Haha this is true. I'm trying to decide wether to hold out till the next Nexus or snatch this up in the next couple months.

I honestly think this phone will dominate for a while. Super Amoled screen (brighter than LED), fastest processor to date (gives better battery life, without root), all touch, 4.3" screen, Samsung UI (Swype w/ Samsung is love for me) including the TouchWiz 4.0, 8mp camera, 2.0 camera in front, it will be the biggest phone to sell in all of Android. If I were you bro, get this lol.

meh why reply this has nothing to do with the icrap. I hope its true all the carriers get a keyboard and a keyboardless version of this phone. Glad I skipped out on the evo 3d the 3d was just so lame

Agreed. I have a coworker, sitting next to me right now, who has that phone. The screen sucks, colors are crap compared to an AMOLED+ screen, hell even the regular Super AMOLED screens were and are better than most phones today.

Some of you guys must be remedial. Theres literally an article that states at&t can be looking at two versions of the phone, one with a physical keyboard and one without...
