T-Mobile's Galaxy S II Announced With HSPA+ 42 Support, October 12 Launch

T-Mobile announced a pair of handsets today capable of supporting their growing HSPA+ 42Mbps network, tapping them both with an October 12th arrival. One you already know about – the HTC Amaze 4G.  The other?  Well you already knew about it as well.  After moths of anticipation, the Samsung Galaxy S II hits T-Mobile in but a few short weeks.

We’re really digging the final specifications for T-Mobile’s version which include a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 Processor, Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread and NFC support.  Mix in Samsung’s Media Hub, YouTube, and T-Mobile TV as well as DLNA compatibility and HDMI output and you can see why movie and television fans would be all over this.  

The Samsung Galaxy S II arrives in T-Mobile stores on October 12th with a $229.99 price tag, after a $50 mail-in-rebate card with a two-year service agreement.  Like they did with the Amaze 4G, T-Mobile says you gotta pay for them Mbp’s.

    If only samsung’s galaxy phones didn’t have crappy hardware (See GPS issues on most of the Galaxy line) I would be somewhat excited. I’ll likely try the HTC Amaze out of these two phones.

      Then maybe you should buy an actual GPS device.

        I have an actual GPS device, however having to keep two devices on my person because Samsung gives people defective products is not acceptable.

    I need that galaxy s II. Put this nexus s to rest.

    This is great news but what will be the actual throughput?  Hoping that they open it up more as my Sensation is only getting about 5MB no where near its capability.  With that said, it currently suits my needs, just want the bragging rights over those my counterparts on Verizon and AT&T.
