Beware Russian-Based Android Rumors

While the ink is barely dry on the articles regarding the Samsung Galaxy S launch, rumors have already surfaced about its successor, the Samsung Galaxy S2 (i9200).  The internet is bursting at the seams with obvious skepticism and Briefmobile has made a pretty convincing argument as to why we shouldn’t believe a word of this stuff.  The highlights include the unusually high processor speed of 2Ghz, the screen resolution, the naming convention, and most obviously, the picture.  Finally, it’s difficult to separate fact from fiction because of the language barrier.  Is the i9200 real? Perhaps, but I wouldn’t get excited about buying it just yet.

Does anyone believe the hype?  Or will all the skeptics eat their words come Q1 2011?
