You know the spill by now: Samsung is pushing Jelly Beans to umpteen hundred Galaxy devices, yadda yadda yadda. Now, it's the Galaxy S II Skyrocket's turn. We haven't heard anything about this phone in some time, so to see this update make its way to the airwaves was quite a welcome surprise.

Like many of the Jelly Bean updates for other Galaxy devices, this one appears to be rolling out exclusively via Kies – at least for the time being.

We've got a bunch of deals for you folks today! To start things off right, refurbished Kindle Fires are currently available from eBay Daily Deals for a mere $140. The Amazon-branded slate, as you will no doubt recall, was one of the hottest selling Android-branded tablets prior to the advent of the Nexus 7. While both tablets are priced to ship, the Kindle Fire is the closest to impulse-buy we've ever seen it.

TheVerge has just learned that the previously-upcoming Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, an upmarket version of the Galaxy S II with LTE and a larger HD display, will not be released.

Previously announced at CES, the HD would have been the flagship Samsung device in AT&T's lineup. In light of the launch of the HTC One X, though, the HD was simply outgunned. Rumors prior to the launch of the Galaxy S III also indicated Samsung had moved up the release date of the next Galaxy in order to get a leg up on the competition (namely, HTC).

Last week, Samsung showed off the white variant of the T-Mobile Galaxy S II, which will be available sometime before the holidays. T-Mo isn't the only one getting a white GSII, though - Sammy just announced white version of the Galaxy S II Skyrocket on AT&T. The white Skyrocket will share the same specs as the black variant:

  • 4.5-inch 480x800 Super AMOLED Plus display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage, microSD card slot
  • 8MP rear shooter, 2MP front
  • Android 2.3.x with TouchWiz

The white Skyrocket will be available on December 4th and should be going for the same price as the exiting model.
