This Day in Android: Galaxy S II announced for three U.S. carriers

Did any of you buy a Samsung Galaxy S II?



  1. I am a roughly 2 month old owner to this 1 year old phone and I LOVE IT!! Not that I need it but this phone is very impressive in my hand. Coworkers, family and friends all love my phone. All that matters is that I love it more. I am usually never one to buy phones that come out day 1 as I seem to get them a year after with the exception being the ill fated Cliq XT. Lesson learned from that was to continue on the 1 year later trend and as a result, I keep getting better and better mini computers aka phones. All the kinks are worked out by then, to me.

    My only concern is how this crApple ish will play out in regards to…

    I wish they’d try to touch my Pearl White baby!! *shakes fists at crApple*
