Could the ship date for Samsung's Galaxy S II i9100 be moved up to March? So says UK eTailer Clove, who has apparently had pre-orders open for some time now, with prices at £510 and £590 for the 16GB and 32GB versions. Surprisingly, it turns out they're not the only one with open doors - Mobile City Online is taking pre-orders for the i1900 as well, charging $700 with free shipping, with a ship date of Q1 2011 (which would be by the end of March). While Mobile City doesn't say whether that's the 16GB or 32GB version, Clove's prices would suggest that it's likely the 16GB.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like any larger retailers have pre-orders or product listings up yet, so take all of this with a grain of salt. Update: UK eTailer Play.com also has it up for pre-order (for £600) with a release date of March 31. Certainly adds a little credibility. (Thanks, Rich!)

Need a reminder of what the S II is packin'?

  • 1 GHz dual-core Exynos processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16/32 GB internal storage, mSD slot

  • 8MP camera with LED flash in back, 2MP front-facing

Mobile City provides a very thorough spec list, if you should need any more details.

    What about for the states? When can we order it??!!!

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Mobile City IS in the States :)

      • Cesar

        Oh you are right but it is imported from the uk....

        • Aaron Gingrich

          It's the i9100 -the international version.

        • Cesar

          Will there be a difference from the us version? Im hopping the us version would be a little cheaper...

        • Aaron Gingrich

          I would assume so, and it should be a little cheaper since it won't be imported from the UK (or, you know, a lot cheaper on contract).

        • Cesar

          Lol yes a lot cheaper in contact... Have you heard or read anything about a us release?

        • Aaron Gingrich

          I haven't heard anything as far as I can remember (hard to keep track!), but I'm sure it's coming.

        • Cesar

          Im sure it is hard to keep track. I just hope it comes soon lol...

        • dragonithe

          Maybe it's a bit more expensive if you import it from the uk, but then you don't have the carriers bloatware holding updates up.

  • Rich

    It's also up for sale from play.com with estimated release date of 31st March so it all seems legit! I'm undecided if I should order now or wait until I can get it from 3 on contract...

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Thanks Rich, updated the post with the new information!

    • Cesar

      is that legit on play.com? Its 599£ how much would that be in $? I've never heard of play.com...

      • Aaron Gingrich

        Yeah, Play.com is a pretty big eTailer. Both Mobile City and Clove are cheaper -Mobile City is, again, $700, Clove comes out to $950, and Play is about $965.

        • Cesar

          Damn id rather pay 700 than 900 lol. I'm already in 600 on my nexus s I can return it and put in 100 more and buy it from city. Should I go for it? Or wait what do you guys think?

    • Cesar

      I think if you got the money buy it cash. You won't have to extend your contract. If you don't have the cash then it would be better to get it subsidized with a two year contact...

  • Jim McP

    IS this a straight Google Android Phone?? Or does it have a Samsung UI??

    • Aaron Gingrich

      It runs TouchWiz 4.0 (Samsung's UI).

  • Cesar

    Will this work on tmo's 4g?

  • http://www.myrecipebookspace.com Alec5216

    Please come to AT&T soon! Please!!

  • Rich

    Sadly Play.com have changed the release date to 6 May!

    Clove are sticking to their guns, but it really looks like we will have to wait a little longer! :(

  • Pong

    When is Canada/US release date?

  • mark fulwider

    OMG! Samsung... NO 4G? what? why spend money on this phone when every great phone in the next six months, including an upgrade to this one ... will have 4G... i just can not believe Samsung was this stupid...
