    I don't care if the function comes out in December, I will still wait on it. I was super excited for the bionic but I think its time for me to switch from Motorola, especially after seeing those benchmark scores from the SG2. Has it been confirmed that the function will have the exact same specs?

    There is no function yet. Verizon hasn't leaked any info on the possible variant. The only way that we know verizon may get it is because samsung said it wanted to release it as the function on vzw. No word if vzw has accepted the variant or if it is in development. Verizon could hold this off for a long time, but who knows.

    One article mentioned the S2 has been made available on the Verizon network in Puerto Rico, I believe. I'll check for the article. Would be great to see it hit here.

    This is really odd that the Bionic seems to be set to come out in about a month and we've heard diddly squat about the Verizon version of the GSII. I was really hoping they would be launching around the same time so I could have at least compared the two and made a decision but at this point it looks like I'm going with the Bionic because I won't be able to wait any longer. Sadly I probably would have gone with the GSII. I guess there's always hope in the off chance of a stealth launch within the month.

    I'm also surprised that we still don't know if it will have an LTE radio in it. It would be sad if it didn't. Then it would be like a Samsung version of a DX2.

    Don't suppose that the S2 could have been rebranded as the Plato in the roadmap? Maybe someone in marketing caught on that Function is not so great a name?

    Hopefully, because the function is nowhere to be seen on vzws roadmap. I am not going to wait much longer though. I will see how Droid 3 and bionic turn out and then I will make my decision. I have had my eye set on the inc2 also. I am not playing the waiting game much longer.
