    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.
