    We typically try to keep things Verizon-focused here on DroidForums, but this was interesting and strange enough news, that I wanted to share it here also. The tech site BGR supposedly have confirmed that the above image, and the additional images in the link below, are of a new variant of the Samsung Galaxy SII that is AT&T's version. This new variant obviously has a slide-out keyboard, which is a surprising thing to see, considering one of the selling points of the device was that it was so thin and light. Here's a quote from the BGR article,
    It seems odd to me that the AT&T version would be so much different that the original version, but I suppose stranger things have happened. There was no indication of pricing or availability yet, and I suppose we will just have to play "wait and see" to determine the veracity of this info. Take a look at the additional pics and let us know in this thread what you think.

    Here is a link to the rest of the pics: Additional AT&T SGH-I927 Samsung Galaxy SII with Slider Pics

    I know... right? I was thinking the same thing when I saw the pics... "Hmm... that looks like a Sprint phone."

    And... thank you sqchram! ;)

    Unless it's a slide like Asus, it doesn't work on a tablet, really. You need to have something that angles the screen.

    Droid Charge has a yellow theme and it's on VZ .

    I don't think this is a Galaxy SII phone , the screen has a backlight so it's LCD not AMOLED , this would be the first Galaxy 1 or 2 with an LCD
