Samsung-Galaxy-S2

At Samsung, size clearly does matter. The South Korean company has just released a new promotional video for the release of the Galaxy S II in the USA, with one theme: big.

Boasting about how the smartphone is already big in Europe and Asia, the video ends with a shot of the Statue of Liberty with the slogan "and soon, it'll be big in America."

The video fuels previous speculation over a potential State-side debut for the Galaxy S II on August 29th, as the company has arranged a product announcement in New York for that date.

Hopefully, by this time next week, we'll have all the information on the US release of the Galaxy S II, but until then you can sit back and drool over this video in the hope that you'll be able to get your hands on the device before the month's out.

    No keyboard, GTFO. If there was a good keyboard alternative to my EVO right now with next gen hardware I would so drop kick this phone into a lake somewhere....OK not really but I would sell it to a friend who is more impressed with size then functionality. I can type rings around vboarders.

    The end of the video shows the US version of the Galaxy SII, the one with 4 Android buttons, not the one with the touchpad. How the heck do the Europeans use that thing anyway?

    Over all, the device for the US looks more rounded around the edges than the European version. Maybe we'll get a nicer one after all to make up for that very very long delay. Here's hoping, yay for next Monday!

    The middle thing is not a touchpad, it's just a button for Home. There are 2 soft buttons on either side so in effect we only miss out on one button. No big deal really.

    The shape of the US one looks more rounded too, more like the original Galaxy S.

      Good pick up. You're quite right. Mine is a lot squarer than the one in at the end of the video.

    I hope it's enhanced over the European/Asian version, we've waited long enough. A little more CPU, a little more memory, improvements somewhere, something, anything. I actually love the Touchpad on my G2, I use it for scrolling and sliding up and down, etc. same (but not as good) as on a Blackberry bold. I'm a bit disappointed the U.S version won't have a D-Pad/Trackpad. It's good for gaming to, like for Tetris. I'm already going to end up giving up a keyboard, now my D-Pad as well? pfft

    If you look at the S2 at the end of the video, it has a date on the home screen of Fri 9/9……..Release?

    We waited to long for the S2, so I would hope he would pep it up a bit to make it worth the wait. Plus it wouldnt be a 6 month old phone if it was a little better. Like super amoled plus hd (720p)
