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.

Via Computerworld, This is my next

Cole Tague
Cole Tague maybe i would rather have a t-mo version ( i can wish right) the hercules is cool but it's the same size as the infuse 4g and that it has a qualcomm cpu and not the exynos. what i like about it is the 42mbps hspa+

John Cunningham
John Cunningham FUCKING YES
Skylor Mitchell
Skylor Mitchell I would probably get it if I wasn't on a 2yr contract with Sprint, didn't like my Evo Shift, and could afford Verizon's plans and cost of phone (I'm sure the phone will cost between $250 and $400 on contract with how much the newer phones are costing).
Bader Alotaibi
Bader Alotaibi NO!!!
Nick Koval
Nick Koval Fo shizzel
Nathan Parks
Nathan Parks the problem with the US is that we have to wait so long after a phone is announced that by the time we actually get it, the next best thing is getting announced for europe. so we figure we might as well wait for the next phone. the excitement dies down by the time we get it
Chris Hagood
Chris Hagood If it had LTE, yes. If not, pass.

Ryan Clark
Ryan Clark Hell to the no!
Devon L Morton

Christopher Wesley
Christopher Wesley No. But if it came to Sprint the maybe
Josh Therezo

Markus Christopher Pesce
Markus Christopher Pesce P.P.S. It's coming to all four major US carriers... Be patient!
Mick de Raad
Mick de Raad If verizon was herr in Sweden, yeah sure. But reality seems so far. Besides, It's too expensive for me I think.
Daniel Frye
Daniel Frye No, but I would buy it if it were to come to Sprint.
Joanna Enrique Ramos
Joanna Enrique Ramos I hope it comes in tmobile i have the galaxyS 4g and is really one of the best android phones
Markus Christopher Pesce
Markus Christopher Pesce Ps... All you fucktards on other carriers saying "No, only if it comes to my carrier" are retarded! The question is to Verizon customers Jackass!
Aaron Horner
Aaron Horner As long as it was lte and has an unlocked bootloader.
Keith Harris
Keith Harris Nope. Only if it comes to Tmo
Mia Atuina
Mia Atuina No coz that means I would have to count my mins & be on a 2 yr contract! No thanks! I am happy with my no contract & unlimited mins! ;)
Zach Wagner
Zach Wagner Yep! It's so speedy it's almost like having it on sprint 4g hahahahaha
Kirk Ngo
Kirk Ngo if it has 4 g than yes if not then the new droid phone.
Brian K Andrews
Brian K Andrews If it were LTE, then YES... in a heartbeat! Att does NOT have the coverage that I need. Verizon has ALWAYS come through for me, (last 8 years now). I can ALWAYS make a call and have only had 4 dropped calls in over 8 years now. The LTE implementation is only going to SWEETEN the pot! :)
Calvin Hilltop
Calvin Hilltop T-mobile, or until Verizon gets less spotty 4G coverage
Markus Christopher Pesce
Markus Christopher Pesce Well duhhhh... What kinda question is that... Noooo, Verizon customers don't want the best android phone ever made... Who would want that?!?! lol
Jake List
Jake List Hell Yeah I would it's basically the super phone and I would pay as much as I have too to able to buy it
Mike Marchak
Mike Marchak I think this is such a hot phone and so good it should be open to all carriers.
Jim Eakins
Jim Eakins Hell yes
Blake Alexander Urbaniak
Blake Alexander Urbaniak Nope. If they keep using that RFS file system and making phones that look like kids toys (and OS skins that look like garbage), I'll never consider buying a Samsung phone.
Timothy Miller
Timothy Miller Hell yes
Dave Yaeck
Dave Yaeck My biggest concern with Samsung is Updates. I'm really trying to forgive an forget the 2.2 horror to as much as wanting the Tab 10.1 so bad I can taste it. If Samsung can step up their back end to match their front end they can be the biggest mobile device provider in the world.
Darryl Mouzone
Darryl Mouzone I'm not on Verizon so no. If it comes to AT&T though.......Muahahahahahahaha!!!!!!
