    It will be a great out of the box phone hopefully. I hope we get some more details on it soon. It is worth waiting for, but I am getting impatient.

    At least with the delay, it makes it slightly more likely it may launch with LTE. Hopefully, but then again, 4G isn't fully stable yet in most areas.
    I'm glad to see that the camera on it isn't nearly as dull as Samsungs earlier phones.

    Hopefully they can use the Charge as a base to figure out how to put 4g in the S2.

    Also does anyone know if it will have hdmi mirroring via that micro usb/hdmi or just streaming of media?

    Just a pondering thought, since Samsung gave CM developer an S2 to play with assuming there going to leave bootloader unlocked but is Verizon going to allow this when/ if phone gets to Verizon.

    I am sure vzws variant will be much different than the one cm got, but I am guessing it will still be unlocked. The root exploit may be harder to find. I hope vzw doesn't decide to drop or delay the phone for this reason though. They already have the Charge, they could just tell samsung that they don't need the s2...hopefully not though.

    If anything, Samsung has always been very easy for devs to hack, so I wouldn't worry as much about the bootloader issue. And I'm pretty sure it has native HDMI mirroring, but not a hundred percent sure.

    I just hope Verizon doesn't stick with just the Charge, and deny us access to the Galaxy S2 "Function" model.

    Battery is fine on my rooted fascinate, but I know people have had problems with it. But the battery life on the Charge is suppose to be awesome, so hopefully that technology will carry over the the S2.

    My fascinate also gets very hot and often 100+ degrees. Can't wait to dump this phone. Love the screen and that's about it. But I read online that a Verizon executive said that a July release was a mistake and that they meant the galaxy 10.1 tab

    The Samsung Galaxy S2 also offers the Social Hub, Game Hub, Readers Hub and Music Hub for entertainment and multimedia. The Game Hub lets users download high quality games, providing 12 social network games and 13 premium games including Gameloft's Real Football 2011. Six-axis motion tracking (accelerometer + gyroscope) is naturally supported, like the original Galaxy S.
