Sprint Android app mentions upcoming phones including the Samsung Galaxy S II
Sprint's Mobile IP Relay app in the Android Market is used by those with hearing problems to place relay calls using text messages on Android phones. The app is listed in the Android Market where Sprint lists the phones that support the relay calls. There are names on the list that you know like the HTC EVO 4G, the Kyocera Echo and the HTC EVO 3D just to name a few. And there are even some phones on the list that have not yet been launched on Sprint yet, such as the sizzling hot smartphone of the moment, the Samsung Galaxy S II.

No, the listing on the app doesn't tell us the launch date for the handset. It also doesn't tell us about where Sprint intends on pricing the phone. But it is the latest link we've seen in public between the carrier and the highly anticipated smartphone. The last time we saw Sprint and the Samsung Galaxy S II together in the same story was when we reported that the variant of the phone for the nation's third largest carrier will be called the Epic Touch 4G.

As we told you, Samsung plans on making a "major product announcement" on August 29th, at which time we should learn much more about the Samsung Galaxy S II. In the meantime, those that rely on Sprint's Mobile IP Relay app for communications will be happy to know that they will also be able to upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy S II without losing the ability to place relay calls using text.
