We've practically been counting down the days until Samsung's Galaxy S II event, which was originally scheduled for Monday, August 29, but now it looks like we'll have to add at least one more day to the count. Thanks to Hurricane Irene, New York City has been declared in a state of emergency and over 250,000 people have been evacuated, thus forcing Sammy to postpone the event at least one day, to Tuesday, August 30th.

Of course, we've been waiting this long... I guess one more day isn't going to hurt anyone.

    It seems like all kinds and sorts of manufacturers are being held back by something or another. One day won't hurt...

    one day wont hurt. Its the months and months ive been waiting. Then the other day i hear it wont be out for verizon. Now im pissed i have a nexus one the doesnt work half the time and i was ready to go to verizon as soon as the s2 was out. Now im stuck with the cheap and grim bionic.

      U should be prepared to be hurt by Verizons high prices and Sammy's lack of updates...not to mention their capacitive buttons blow..had a sgs1 on both tmo and sprint...and I'm done with them

    Check my comment on the SGSII post about not coming to Verizon, I wondered how the hurricane would affect this event and BAM! nailed it. But this sucks. Hopefully only pushed off one day. If there's massive devastation and damage, it could be postponed weeks. Hope I didn't just nail it...
