News and Rumors

UK to get Galaxy S 2 May 1

It has been interesting to see the release process for the Galaxy line of devices from Samsung, releasing first in the UK and other overseas destinations (excluding Japan and China which seem to get all the cool toys first). Samsung has announced today that they are keeping in that tradition by reporting via press release that they will be releasing the Galaxy S 2 on May 1st in the UK. Successor to the very popular line of Galaxy handsets, the S 2 brings with it more processing power via a dual core processor, plus an upgrade to the Super AMOLED screens, called Super AMOLED Plus. As far as the flavor of Android, we know it is Gingerbread, but it is sure to be “touchwiz-ed” out.

    With the exception of music, I don’t see how the Amazon infrastructure would be very well suited for phone size. Maybe it’s a personal thing, but I don’t like watching movies or reading on something 4″ in size. 7″ is a minimum really, and even that’s pushing it for something like movie streaming.

    Not interested. If the Kindle Fire is anything to go off of, this will be a low budget device with limited functionality.
