    I think depending on specs if it is the only gs2 they get there will be alot of angry people who wanted a version closer to the international gs2.

    I HOPE so. I really missed the Epic on Sprint and have even thought of going back to them for that phone. I'd also like to leave to save some money since I lost my employee discount through Verizon and just not happy with their anti-consumer practices since this year, very limited and expensive tiered plans, killing NE2 program, reducing return period for phones, no more free overnight shipping for warranty replacement phones, etc.

    I'll be happy enough if its single-core, but if dual-core, all the better! I'm already stoked that if most likely will have LTE!

    I think its a shame that the majority of the market dislikes physical keyboards and wants anorexic phones. At least give us two versions, with and without a keyboard.

    LONG LIVE SLIDER PHONES! : )

    How did you lose your discount? I would look at it hopefully the slide is a little better than the original eepic. If its dual core it will be a huge seller.

    I was working at VZW up until last month in technical support at a call center. I was getting 50% off my calling plan. I lost it due to unfortunately being fired, for leaking information about the Droid 3 and new tiered data plans to blogs such as this. I regret my actions.

    If the rumors of a Galaxy SII slider with 4G are true, this is will be my phone over the Droid 3. It would presumably fix everything wrong with the D3: Screen, RAM, 4G, bootloader.

    as long as its a tight slider like the droid line, i would be down. if the slider is similar to the epic, i would probably pass. also would be concerned about the thickness of the phone. i would be surprised though if the GS2 was really a slider, lest they take sales away from the droid line

    I highly doubt this will be VZW's SGS2. My guess is it will be something along the lines of an "Epic 2", much like the one Sprint is rumored to be releasing along side their SGS2 variation (Within). VZW's goal is probably to get the slider fans a LTE phone on the network. Makes me wonder if VZW's SGS2 will have LTE though ... that may be saved for the Bionic as their flagship all touch LTE device for the next year.

    The Droid bionic is non slider how the gs2 is so what you are saying about taking sales from droid line is wrong. If that was the case they would and probably will go cheap on the gs2 like they did with the fascinate to try and get more sales for the bionic.

    I very much doubt this is the S2. This has some major differences, besides the keyboard, that would turn off most people anticipating the S2. Verizon can be very dumb, but I doubt they are going to make that particular mistake. I believe Verizon will get an actual version of the S2. That is the good news.

    The bad news is I'm wondering if the guy CK spoke to, the one that was saying it might come with LTE, was talking about this device instead? Could be possible since this is a Samsung device. LTE has been a major discussion point here since that feature is considered the deal breaker for most. Guess we will just have to keep waiting.

    True if it is released Sept or later and doesn't have lte I think it will be a fail in wake of the new nexus which rumors are slating for an Oct release.

    What makes you guys think Verizon will release the Nexus Prime? They won't. They didn't get the first two Nexus phones.

    Negative. A slider was not mentioned and that info would have been given. I wont say its not possible but I HIGHLY doubt it

    With this device on the horizon I think we will be hearing some info on S2 pretty soon.

    Insiders that's why people think it. They didn't get the first 3 iPhones either so why did they get the iphone 4? Its called demand they see how well the nexus line is selling.
