    I am on Verizon and I've been drooling over the Galaxy S2 for what feels like a year. Anyone have anything new regrading the release date?

    Is there any conformation that it will be 4g? It seems hard to believe we'll see an LTE version, keeping the same form factor given how big all the LTE devices that are out now are.

    If they do manage that, it'll be the best phone on Verizon by a long shot, especially if they keep it unlocked.

    well after reading yesterday that they sent a few phones over to the Dev's at Cyanogenmod, I imagine that the phone will remain unlocked.

    I'll be incredibly disappointed if its not 4G though...

    Yeah I just read the same thing on Droid-life. Still no word on LTE though. I'm not going to get my hopes up on that front, like I said before, GS2 is about 1/4 the width of the current LTE phones. LTE GS2 in July just sounds too good to be true.

    Since it will be unlocked, I'm game if it has LTE. But I will wait to hear news regarding the Bionic's bootloader.

    It's a bit weird that we don't know the specs 5 weeks before the phone's release...

    If this phone has LTE, Id probably have to sell my Droid charge and get it. But even if not, I would still consider it. 4G is ALWAYS losing connection, and sometimes it leaves me without a connection at all. Sometimes I think it would be better to have a reliable 3g connection than a 4g connection that only works half the time.

    If it's both unlocked and has LTE while the Droid3 is locked (probably) and no LTE (definitely) I guess it's goodbye Motorola :)

    I'm going to get the GSII regardless of LTE...phone just sounds too cool to not try, and Samsung sending one to CyanogenMod really piqued my interest in this phone. I'll get it through Costco, and under their 90 day return policy swap it for a Bionic if it turns out that phone is interesting....but 4.3" screen on Samsung is already bigger than I really want, so the 4.5" Bionic is just sounding too big.

    People are speculating on weather that 4.5" screen on the Bionic is correct. Apparently, when you measure the two phones that were pictured next to one another in the leak, the Bionic is only .3" bigger than whatever phone is on the left. So if it is the defy, the Bionic would only have a 4" screen.
