Aaron does an early video review of the Samsung Galaxy S 2, the newest member of the Galaxy series of Android smartphones. Announced at the "Samsung Unpacked" event, the phone is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor and offers a 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling, and is in a package that's just over 4 ounces.
Sadly, there's no pricing or other launch information available at this time, other than Samsung's comment that the device will not be available in the United States at launch. Before you get upset, keep in mind that this is Samsung's typical launch strategy - launch in Europe, Asia, and other markets, followed by a North American launch months later.
Say what you will about Samsung and the Android 2.2 snafu, but the device is hot. Like the upcoming Samsung 4G LTE phone on Verizon, the Galaxy S 2's screen is beautiful, and it's incredibly peppy.
