After months of delays, the Galaxy S II, Samsung’s next-gen Android beast, has caused a lot of buzz.
The Good Buzz: It’s selling like hotcakes. At least in South Korea and Europe, where it’s available. Samsung recently announced it sold 3 million units in just 55 days. Early
reviews have been extremely positive too. Not bad for a phone that isn’t even available in the U.S. yet.
The Bad Buzz: It’s not available in the U.S. yet. The Galaxy S II was supposed to launch in the States in March. It’s now July, and there are few signs it’s coming soon. There’s also that whole legal matter where Apple is accusing Samsung of stealing its phone and tablet designs.
Thanks to a leak, we know that it will launch on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon under the names Attain, Within, and Function, respectively. Still, there’s no official announcement from Samsung or the carriers on when U.S. Android fans can finally buy one.
