    I'd wait for the vigor or revolution 2. Better phones that are slated for release about a month later. Not to mention there is no guarantee the sgs2 will have lte on verizon.
    Don't like HTC at all. Revolution 2 will be a great device but I'm pretty much set on the GS2.

    I don't like LG Phones. I'd consider the Vigor, but HTC is pretty flat imo...I'll give the Bionic an obligatory look, but if the SGS II has LTE its probably going to be my next phone unless I hear something to convince me of the Prime's release.

    I played with a friends Nexus S and it was fantastic...

    I REALLY like that phone. It's light but it feels GREAT in hand in my opinion.

    As much as I would LOVE to have the Nexus Prime, I don't think there is any way that I can wait that long. I have had this upgrade credit since December 16th of last year and I have waited pretty much as long as possible. I am trying to just ignore all of the phones that will come out past October because at this point I really need to just find a phone to purchase and stop waiting for the next great thing.

    Also, remember the Iphone is rumored to come out in September or October. So I expect the carriers would want to release the GSII's a few weeks before the big "Iphone Day."

    Or will release it after. I mean it doesn't really matter because the iphone will sell a ton and those who like android wont buy the iphone but verizon could release them the same day but that would make too much sense.

    I honestly wouldn't count on it but there is always that possibility especially as the event draws closer.

    A Motorola Fan Boy and getting enthused on the SGII I have been looking at some of the OE SGII accessories and goodness! I just may have to eat crow on the Bionic side and have the SGII for desert.

    I have no use for WebbTop and was not going to discriminate because of it, but looking at the accessories the Sammy has I am finding myself ignoring the Bionic.
    That Car cradle is right up my application alley, and the extended battery case that does not require removing the OE battery and still fits in the dock & cradle is pretty slick. I can see that saving my bacon on long surveillance details away from a charging source.
    The desktop dock is pretty sweet too. I don't think I'll need the sound horn though.

    As the Bionic delays kept coming I was losing the excitement, but now I cannot wait for the Sammy announcement on the 29th.

    Yeah but since it seems that each carrier will change their version of the sgs2 those accessories will change and be limited as each carrier changes their version.

    @CK No, I was going on positive remarks and from others & the press until now and have been really digging recently, lurking UK forums and such getting more and more enthused as I read.

    @d-backs1 Yeh, that goes without saying. I hope Verizon gets it and doesn't do too much neutering.

    It sounds like battery life is OK on the unit. It seems Sammy has a customizable power managemet app that helps also.

    No,,,, I have pretty much been aware of the SGII being a capable unit overseas but wearing the blinders for the Bionic only.
    I don't know what happened to Moto but its looking like it could cost them some loyalty in the market place.

    Everyone hopes verizon doesnt do that but if they do I will just wait and see if any of the rumored upcoming phones pan out. It is sad how the carriers at times ruin these phones. Why can't they just let the phones be? lol

    Well........... If Sammy announces the release in the US on the 29th to Verizon....... will Verizon have to camp on the phone for a month or so, or perhaps are they testing it now?

    All the hype about it releasing the same time as the bionic in early Sept does not jive with Verizon's known extensive testing periods.

    I'm sure if the release is anytime within the next month or so they have been testing them for awhile.

    Kind of strange that the Verizon version hasn't passed through the FCC yet, and everyone thinking they will release it first. Probably doesn't mean anything. I would just think it would be the other way around.

    It's because their version is the slider which did pass through the fcc.

    I hope not, I have no use for a slider. I have not used my OG Droid keyboard in so long I'm afraid to open it.

    Do you have info we don't? No Samsung CDMA/LTE phone has passed through the FCC as far as I know, slider or otherwise.

    Hello all... I've been camping out in the Idaho wilderness for the past week. I figured by the time I got back to civilization there would be some news about the GS2. Sadly, not much has changed.

    However, unless I missed something the VZW vapor slider has not passed through the FCC. It was leaked via photo and for all we know it's a test phone.

    This is incorrect. Nobody has seen anything pass through the FCC in regards to Verizon's version.

    Is it unheard of for an announcement and a launch to occur on the same day? :crosses fingers:
    I dont believe in this launching day. So far it has always been delayed. Samsung always better delays to be sure it will work well. Not always all sw versions work, but Samsung does its best.

    From the FP: http://www.androidcentral.com/samsun...ks-galaxy-s-ii



    Looks like that "launching in August in the US" line was a bit premature. But at least we're finally getting an announcement. Hopefully, there'll be some VZW news in there too!

    Edit: lol had to update the img link because Phil decided to blur out the location and time of the event. Don't think it's really that secret as it's in a public store (Samsung Experience at 6pm). Also, BGR has it unblurred as well.
    So excited!
