    Samsung has officially announced today that they will introduce the US Galaxy SII variants on 8/29.

    What does this mean for a release...sometime in September hopefully???

    Most likely. As long as it's 31+ days from the photon launch

    Yeah early September for Sprint is still likely in my opinion. It makes me wonder though if Sprint will still announce their release in their normal 2-3 week prior or wait for Samsung's official announcement. I was expecting an announcement from Sprint sometime during the week of 8/22.

    I figured the week of 8/22 as well.

    Perhaps these will already be stocked on all carriers so Samsung can flood the market before the Apple phone drops.

    I give up trying to figure these manufacturers and their thinking out

    The newest rumors report a release date of 9/9, but after all the recent news of Samsung's new Super Amoled HD displays, I'm wondering if I will just wait for more news on the Nexus Prime.

    My eyes aren't good enough for the current displays. Why would I want more pixels to make my text smaller, when its good enough for.me now?

    I really want to check this phone out...I just don't like Sprint/Samsung's track record with software updates.

    Has me kinda worried.

    Everyone always complains about updates and touchwiz. I would love to get 2.3 on my Epic but I bought the phone for Android and the keyboard not 2.3. I think that Samsung has learned from the past and has up there game with updates. I hope lol. If anyone wants a phone for mainly updates i would suggest to wait for the Nexus coming out later this year.

    Wish I had a dollar for every time I read that. Don't count on a change from Samsung. They move on and forget their old phones. Buy it if you like it now, but realize you're stuck with it just as it is for a long time.

    I think the biggest question right now is, will this event even take place?

    This hurricane is heading straight towards NYC. Will be interesting to see if Samsung postpones the event.

    All depends on how the storms power is when its really here. Waters right now are cooling down so it may loose its power... i hope they still have it but it hope more that the storm dies out and just becomes pain then a devastation. Good luck to everyone here on the east coast ...
