The FedEx man brought me a lovely little gift yesterday: The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II. This is the last stateside arrival of the Galaxy S II family. The review will take a bit to get out the door, so until then I figured I'd whet your appetite with some initial impressions.
First of all, this thing is big. Really big. I have to say though, I love the design of it. It feels sturdy and very well made. Like Samsung really knows what they're doing. The plastic back has a wonderful texture to it that almost makes it feel like leather.

T-Mobile has had quite a day today, first announcing their impending release of the Galaxy S II, then announcing the HTC Amaze 4G, formerly known around the rumor mill as the HTC Ruby.
It appears that one of the device's major claims to fame is its camera. The Amaze boasts a backside illuminated sensor, in addition to software enhancements including SmartShot and PerfectPics, allowing you to take the best shot every time, and organize your photos easily.
If you haven't been keeping up with the HTC Ruby's rumors lately, here are some of the specs it's bringing to the table:
4.3" qHD super LCD display
Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 dual-core processor at 1.5GHz
16GB Internal storage
Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread (With Sense 3.5)
The HTC Amaze 4G is expected to drop on the same date as the Galaxy S II - October 12th, with pre-orders available at T-Mobile.com starting October 10th.
