We have some intriguing news this morning, regarding the Samsung Galaxy SII superphone. A Los Angeles industry analyst named Paul Mueller claims that he believes Verizon will get the first iteration of the Galaxy SII before the other carriers, and that it will come as early as August 12th. Here's a quote from Mr. Mueller,Regardless of whether Mr. Mueller's prediction about Verizon comes true, this date is entirely possible since it does coincide with earlier statements made by Samsung Mobile President, Shin Jong-Kyun indicating that Samsung's flagship phone will arrive in the U.S. in August.“I’m not sure about the exact date, but I’ve been told that August 12 is a possibility. It will arrive first on Verizon and then the rest of the carriers within a month. Samsung will market this directly against the iPhone 5,”
On a separate note, Earlier rumors suggested the names for the different variants of the Galaxy SII for each carrier, and it bears repeating. The supposed names will be, The Attain (AT&T), The Within (Sprint) and the Function (Verizon). If earlier rumors about the Droid Bionic getting pushed back to September turn out to be true, then the "SGS2/Samsung Function" will actually arrive before the Bionic, further complicating the decision making process for many folks.
