Verizon Launching Galaxy S II on August 12?
The Samsung Galaxy S II is becoming one of the most anticipated devices here in USA and we know a lot of people looking forward to its release. Although we recently heard Samsung indicate they expect to launch it in the U.S.A. sometime in August but they didn’t give us any specifics beyond that. Analyst Paul Mueller has a bit of additional info which might help clear things up, specifically as to who gets it first and when. According to his information, we can look for Verizon to offer the Galaxy S II come August 12th, a couple of weeks from now.
.“I’m not sure about the exact date, but I’ve been told that August 12 is a possibility. It will arrive first on Verizon and then the rest of the carriers within a month. Samsung will market this directly against the iPhone 5,”
We can see Samsung wanting to take the fight directly to Apple over their iPhone and expect it to do rather well. We’ve recently seen other variations of the Galaxy S II in AT&T’s sliding QWERTY Attain and Sprint’s touch-only Within. We’re just curious to see if Verizon’s version will be touch-only or feature a keyboard of its own. Of course, we’d be happy if we’re given a choice between both come launch.
