    It seems like it took forever just for the Samsung Galaxy SII to get to the US, but after waiting so long, it is here! I have already ordered one and now I am just waiting for it to get here! I love streaming movies and shows to my phone, and since the GSII has a dual-core processor and 4G, I think it will have no problems streaming and downloading. The app that I use for streaming is the DISH Remote Access app. I love this app because it lets me stream recorded shows from my 922 SlingLoaded receiver to my phone anywhere I am! I can even stream live TV if I choose! As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have had the opportunity to use the app for a long time, and I think it is going to be awesome on the Galaxy SII!
