ATT-galaxy-s-ii-400

We've basically known all there is to know about the US versions of the Galaxy S II for a while now, just short of the release date and price for AT&T and T-Mobile.

You can scratch Ma Bell off that list now, though, as it just announced via Twitter that the long-awaited GSII will be available on October 2nd for $200 with a two-year agreement. I'm sure all AT&T customer have the spec list embedded deep into their memory banks in anticipation of this beauty, but just in case you've forgotten, here they are again:

  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter capable of 1080p video
  • 2MP ffc
  • 16GB internal storage
  • microSD slot
  • HDMI out
  • NFC
  • HSPA+
  • Android 2.3.4

Now that you have all the deets, who's going to be standing outside of that big blue storefront on October 2nd waiting for the doors to open and grab one of these?

    Finally. Unfortunately for Samsung, the competition has largely caught up and the iPhone 5 will be released shortly. They missed an opportunity to own the smartphone market in a way not seen since the original iPhone release.

      I DONT THINK SO

      Even though its been out for several months, the Galaxy S2 will still be better than the iPhone 5 and many new phones that will come out in the near future. A few months delay is not going to change anything when it was meant to be a great phone even 2 years down the line.

      That's how good and advanced the Galaxy S2 was made to be.

      Not to mention, if you're that worried about outdated tech, why even bother with an iPhone? They're always released with last year's tech. You make no sense.

      Im sure some of this had to do with all the litigation with apple.

      If this was apple's game plan, it worked. I hope the Galaxy Tab 7.7 gets here soon.

      Completely disagree. I've had both and prefer galaxy s 2

    I wonder if the GPS will be usable in the II. Certainly a deal-breaker for me if it is not.

    • Jon

      With millions sold already and barely any complaints about GPS, sounds like you have nothing to worry about.

    The AT&T version does not offer a LED Notification light, any special reason why not, also is there a software app that replicates the LED Notification Process?

    Am very worried about how the S-2 will perform on the AT&T Network, Great Phone and Lousey Network, its like Oil and Water, no matter how hard you shake them, they will never blend together. AT&T has a knack for wrecking great phones. Any Comments?

      NoLED acts like a replacement for a a LED light. While not a LED directly, it functions as a blinking on-screen icon in the form of the notification you recieved or missed, e.g. Gmail, SMS, Missed call, etc. It works extremely well on my Samsung Infuse 4G, and it has tons of customizable features.

      NoLED is an app in the Android Market that's totally free. Here the link: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.led.notify&feature=search_result
