The Samsung Galaxy S II, said to be the Android smartphone that gives Steve Jobs cold night sweats and nightmares, is arriving in Canada tomorrow, July 14. It is going on a trip to near-space on Friday, July 15. Its processor has been successfully overclocked from the stock and measly 1.2 GHz to 1.5 GHz and beyond by those who currently own it. It has been selling around the world at a mind-boggling rate of 1 handset every 1.5 seconds.
The Samsung Galaxy S II, indeed, is a most sought-after Android smartphone. It has done all of that–and a little bit more–except one thing: arrive in the United States. Will it ever? And if ever, when?
According to reports, “slow” talks with major U.S. mobile carriers have caused the delay. Still, anticipation for the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S II on U.S. soil has remained high, especially with rumors circulating last month about its coming to various U.S. carriers in July.
It’s almost mid-July, and not one of the U.S. carriers has made any sound about any Galaxy S II arriving. Is it still coming to town?
There is a very real possibility that the world’s favorite Android smartphone will skip the United States. Here are some speculations about why Americans will be deprived of the pleasure of the lovely and powerful Samsung Galaxy S II:
But, then again, these are speculations. Call it baseless rumor-mongering, if you like. The silence about the Samsung Galaxy S II’s arrival in the U.S. has been driving us crazy. It’s eerie–very few leaks, if at all, have been made regarding such an ironically hot-selling Android phone. Please, with all your might, pray that these speculations are wrong.
Are you still going to wait for the Samsung Galaxy S II like a faithful and devoted lover? Or do you think it’s time to abandon all hope?
