US Cellular finally snags its version of the Samsung Galaxy S II - priced at $229.99
Call it a long time in the making, but US Cellular customers will no doubt be excited to know that the venerable Samsung Galaxy S II will be coming very soon! Snagging its own version of the beloved premier Android smartphone, it seems that this one will be similar to the original GSM model, as it retains that spiffy 1.2GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos C210 processor.

Today, US Cellular and Samsung Mobile announced the upcoming availability of the Samsung Galaxy S II, which will be sold for $229.99 with a 2-year contract after a $100 mail-in-rebate. At that price point, it easily supplants all others and establishes itself as the highest priced smartphone available on the carrier’s lineup – though, it’s undoubtedly justified. Given that no confirmed date has been attached to its availability, it’ll give prospective owners some time to start saving up cash for the eventual purchase.

There’s no arguing that the Samsung Galaxy S II will be making noise on US Cellular’s lineup, especially when it’ll be flaunting a 4.5” Super AMOLED Plus display – thus, keeping it in line to some of the recent variants of the handset we’ve been seeing. Rounding out its specs sheet, it features an 8-megapixel auto-focus rear camera, 16GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, Swype keyboard, 3G connectivity, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Yes, we know already about the frustrations about seeing yet another Gingerbread device in an Ice Cream World, but hey, that’s just the way it is.

Well, that’s just about all there is to know about the upcoming smartphone. Although it might be perceived as a late arrival, especially when the handset has been around for almost a year now overseas, we’re still certain that customers will snag on the opportunity of picking one up when it launches.
