    [Rumor] Samsung Galaxy SII Having Trouble Getting Adopted by US Carriers


    In a strange twist of fate, one of the most hotly anticipated, and hottest selling smartphones (in Japan), the Samsung Galaxy SII, is being held back from U.S. consumers right now. The Galaxy SII, which already sold more than 3 million units in Japan in just two months, is being held up by tougher than usual negotiations with carriers. It appears that the different carriers are weighing their options with all the strong competition from new HTC and Motorola phones. This has dragged out contract negotiations with Samsung to bring the "flagship" device to the States. It seems almost inconceivable that the device would be in this position, but a crowded field of advanced smartphones keeps pushing the U.S. release of this amazing phone further and further back. With the Motorola Droid Bionic about to hit stores next month, and a potential new iPhone from Apple likely coming in the fall, will it be "too little, too late" for the Galaxy SII?

    Not that interested in the Galaxy S2 anymore. Maybe if it released this month, but with the bionic coming, Id rather go for that.
    HTC Incredible>Droid2>DroidX>HTC Thunderbolt>Back to Droid X>Droid 3>Prime?

    Ugh. Eligible for early upgrade, + I got my verizon deposit back... Was so excited when I saw this phone for the first time 4 days ago (been on the road for work the past 3 months =P)


    This is like stealing candy from a baby, before its even in the babys hands!

    Now I'm afraid to upgrade to anything, my luck Ill get a new phone and something 5 times better will come out the day after I can no longer return the phone.

    I got a feeling its the lawsuit that causing the delay.

    Someone made a good point. Would a carrier want to deal with the headache of having to remove them from stores almost as soon as it gets it if Apple gets its way?

    Even if its not delayed totally, any type of delay is a win for Apple if this is cuz of the lawsuit.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
