    So what they are saying is that the Galaxy S II won't be on verizon... but the Galaxy S II LTE will be?

    Vigor over bionic if you can wait, for SURE... Still no word on the prime yet though? It only makes sense if you think about it... Why would they want two phones that are near identical, one is a bit better, and they cost the same?

    Go with the prime and leave the competition behind ;)

    I can see how you wouldn't want to carry the SGS2 and the Prime because of the similarities... but why would Verizon be the only ones to pick up on that? Might they be getting the prime first?

    Bummer, was looking forward to seeing how they would alter it. We still have the Prime to look out for, just wish we had more news on it.

    Whew - thought for a minute that VZW pooched it again. I am very curious to see what comes of this and how it stacks up to the Bionic.

    Looks like it's Bionic, Vigor, Prime, or bust. Doesn't bother me any.

    My contract with Verizon expires in December. Whatever's the best phone to come out between now and then is what I'm going to get.
