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.

isn't better to wait for ICS phones gs2 seems a little dated?

No, ICS phones will not have the same battery life as the SGSII; therefore, get the SGSII because it will be supported by Cmod. Unless the new ICS phone is just a variant of the SGSII... then everyone can win.

All ICS is MIUI. Which personally looks like a *** iPhone. They think the patent wars are bad now? Hahaha wait until ICS hits the market. My advice, get a good hardware phone and put a custom ROM on it. Not to mention they are pushing ICS to compete with the iPhone, so I wouldn't really trust that it is going to be that stable.

GSII is already outdated. It's been out for over six months now while it's been pussyfooting in the US.

amazing that the monster SGS2 is outdated to you, but yet you want everyone to buy an iphone5 which will lack in specs compared to the SGS2 and iOS is so far behind that they thought it best to copy android directly.

it isn't outdated yet. If it comes out with 4G on all networks it will still be the fastest phone on the market.

According to Android terms, any phone over six months old is outdated. Lol, that's how inconsistency works on Android.

I would like to think this is true myself, but no one truly knows what Apple will be bringing to the table with the iPhone 5. It is all speculation and sadly the The_Miz has a point about the device already being outdated. Samsung really screwed the pooch big time by leaving the U.S., one of the largest consumers of mobile phones in the dark.

it wasnt samsung, it was the US carriers demanding things of samsung. You really think they left out their biggest market so long by choice? :)

I believe that the main reason it takes so long for technology to come to market in the US is the FCC. It takes them forever to clear products for safety requirement, the strictest out there I believe.F-ing government

wow iphone 5 specs.. are outdated,, you guys must own a DeLorean or something as nobody knows the specs for the iphone 5, and yes in Android land... the SGII will take a back seat to the Prime....

Still banking on this phone for maybe....I dont know, two months? Any longer and I'm done with it sorry. I want the phone. I've wanted it a long time ago. It's just needlessly taking forever to get to the states!!!
