    It seems like it would be in Samsung's best interest to leak some kind of information before the Bionic hits shelves. There are a ton of original Droids up for new phones and the Bionic is going to get many of them if there's no other choice.
    Heck my X is up for NE2 and unless some glimmer of hope for the S2 shows up soon I may end up going with the Bionic myself - as much as I want a S2.

    Wouldn't surprise me if the Function rolled out before or shortly after the Bionic dropped.

    There's a lot of Bionic buzz around an August launch... seems difficult to believe that the Function would suddenly arrive. Let's hope it happens.

    How can NE2 be up on the X already? It's only a year old?

    They better get the function through the fcc then if they want to release it close to the bionic. I mean that is one big step that once that happens usually a release isnt too far out( barring any major issues that are discovered)

    I thought a version of the GS2 went through the FCC months ago?

    VZW has always given me the early upgrade credit deal about a year before the formal NE2 should apply. I could get a Droid 3 now with a contract extension for $149 with my corporate discount. I dunno - it's not 2 years and maybe it's more once the full 2 years hits - but they apply it early I guess and I'll be using it for either a Bionic or S2 (hopefully a S2).

    Well not so much for T-Mobile, unless you're content with 2G data speeds. AT&T would be the network to activate an unlocked GSM version of the SGS2 if you were willing to plunk down the cash for an unbranded one.

    Regarding FCC clearance, yeah that was Samsung sending through the stock international version of the device. Each US specific carrier model will see their own individual passes through the FCC.

    Looks like the Samsung GS2 will be launching next month Samsung sets Galaxy S II's US rollout for August - The Economic Times but unknown to which US carriers. Looks like Sprint maybe the first.
