    Pocketnow, via a wireless accessories website, has apparently discovered the names of 3 of the carrier-branded versions of the Galaxy S 2 that will be coming stateside later this year. The device will be known as the Attain on AT&T, the Function on Verizon Wireless, and the Within on Sprint.

    Mysteriously absent is a T-Mobile version, suggesting either that the device won’t be coming to America’s pinkest carrier, or that it will be arriving in a different (QWERTY?) form-factor which does not fit the case being advertised on the source webpage. Either that, or they just don’t know the name of it, yet.

    Any word on when a Verizon release is expected? Definitely looks like the phone to replace my D1 now that the Bionic is MIA

    Yeah I'm on Galaxy (Function??????) watch. My D1 still holds it's own with ROM updates but is showing its weaknesses as well.

    If the Verizon version has global capabilities, I'll be all over it. Doesn't seem too likely though.

    Those are the worst names for phones that I have ever seen. I really, really hope that Samsung cares about these devices more than their silly names indicate.

    Most of the tech blogs and info i've read about this phone suggests it will be 3g only.

    No 4g = no sale for me.

    I've held off buying the tbolt and the charge because I want a dual-core 4g smartphone. The galaxy s2 is dead sexy and incredibly fast... but why buy a fast processor and settle for slow 3g service? I could understand if I didn't have 4g available in my area, but I live in metro detroit where there is a strong 4g presence

    From what i've read this phone will be coming in q3, around the same time that the Bionic is set to release. If the rumors are true and the galaxy s2 is 3g only, it will be an easy decision to go for the Bionic.

    If samsung manages to push this out with 4g, then it will be a *much* harder to pick between the two.

    I'm with you, sorta. I see little point in picking up Verizon's variant if it's 3G only. Why have all that power and only a paltry 3G connection? Problem is, there's no other option on the horizon as far as I'm concerned. I have no interest in the Bionic (maybe I would if they dump the pentile matrix for real qHD, but doubtful).

    Agree about the pentile screen pixel layout. I've used the ATRIX, and the effective resolution really sucks, you can see a texture on solid colors
