Samsung Galaxy S II

Verizon Android lovers, get ready. The Samsung Galaxy S II will be coming to the Big Red network in July, a Verizon spokeswoman has told Computerworld, although no release date has been set just yet. A previous leak claimed that Verizon's Galaxy S II will come to market under the name "Samsung Galaxy S 2 Function," but that moniker has yet to be made official.

Ever since the Galaxy S II made its debut at MWC in February, anticipation for the device's arrival on U.S. carriers has been pretty high. We recently heard that Sprint's model, which may be known as the "Samsung Galaxy S 2 Within," could be coming in late July, a rumor which seems to gain a bit more credence with today's news. However, when Computerworld asked Sprint about today's news, an official for the carrier declined to comment. AT&T couldn't be reached for a comment on the matter. We should be learning more about Verizon's Galaxy S II launch in the coming weeks, so be sure to stay tuned!

UPDATE: False alarm, folks. According to This is my next, a Verizon spokesperson has confirmed that it'll actually be the LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, not the Galaxy S II, that'll be launching next month.
