Samsung Galaxy S II will be launched to the stratosphere on July 15th, just to prove a point

The Samsung Galaxy S II will be tied to a space balloon and sent to the stratosphere as part of the promotional festivities for the handset in Japan, proving once again that Samsung is all-out marketing its finest example of cell phone making. Our own editor Basil Kronfli was literally hanging off a cliff while trying to unbox the dual-core goodness as part of an Extreme Unboxing event in the Snowdonia mountain range in Wales, so we know extreme marketing when we see it.
This, however, takes the Galaxy S II promotion to a whole new level, many miles above ground, and it will be broadcasted live on Ustream, plus it will be showing tweets and messages live. Google tried something similar with the Nexus S, excusing itself it was for scientific purposes instead of pure unaltered fun, so we might be having some pictures from the Galaxy S II, while floating 20 miles above ground next month as well.
- Display 4.3" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 4 Dual, Dual-core, 1200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1650 mAh(9.00h 3G talk time)

There better be some multitasking going on here. My upgrade is coming up and it's going to be the LG Thrill (HTC Holidy maybe) or the SGS 2.
