    RUMOR: Galaxy S II coming to Verizon July 21st?

    See the below link I found today, written today (so it's not from last month where the verizon rep misqouted the tablet release). I know it's coming to Bell in Canada on the 21st and originally thought they had their carriers wrong or it was a mistype, but they state Verizon a few times. Anyone know how reliable Headline News is? I've seen a few stories from them that people have talked about in the past, so I'm hoping they are legit. They don't give the reason or source as to why they believe it will be coming the 21st though.

    here's another site reporting the 21st and possibly 23rd for ATT. BTW - of note, the first link states it will be 4G.

    what worries me about those dates is that i set up a google alert for "samsung galaxy s2 verizon" and it seems every article i get is from "headline news" or "ibtimes." 2 places i've never heard of before.

    REALLY hoping its true though, i'm eligible for an update on july 28th and i was waffling between the gs2 or bionic... but 4g on the gs2 would be the icing for me

    Im with you. BTW - I had previously been searching using the keywords "Samsung Galaxy S 2 us" and most recently changed to "Samsung Galaxy S II us" and have been getting a lot more info/results using the 2nd one. You may want to revise/update yours.

    Agreed on both your points. I don't know if I should trust or not trust those sites and I'm already eligble for an upgrade from my OG Droid and have to make a decision soon as I'm in a love/hate relationship with my current phone. Fast sometimes, slow most times. Can't take it much longer. 4G SG2 would make my decision very easy.

    thanks jonnyc, just revised the alert.
    out of curiosity i did a whois on both those sites, ibtimes is registered in nyc (7 hanover square to be exact)

    but headline news is out of some insanely rural place in griffin, georgia. so... yeah.

    i wonder if headline news is in any way affiliated with headline news out of CNN. Doesn't seem like it, but don't know how they would be able to keep going without CNN telling them to cease and desist.

    i'm hearing the article isn't true at all... also, found out that the way headlinenews.net gets their information is from random press releases... in other words, anyone can send them an article, as long as its under 200 words and has no more than 1 photo and they'll post it as an "article." they optimize all posts for search engines so that when you search for a product you end up on their site... pretty much the most illegitimate way report on the news

    haha, awesome. How about IBT? They seem to be more legit than Headline News. I should send in a newsletter in 200 words why I hate them for getting my hopes up!

    International Business Times (IBT) is one of the least reliable sites out there. They just repost crazy Android rumors as if they are fact. They still report that the Bionic is going to be the old Etna model. I wish there was a way to get them off my Google News stream.
