    Even though we can't really replicate this here in the States yet, the Samsung Galaxy SII got some over-clocking action from the folks at XDA Developers. They not only managed to get the beast up to 1.5GHz, but they posted the instructions and the Kernel to share with the Android community. Amazingly, when over-clocked to a stable 1.5GHz, the flagship device achieved a phenomenal 4062 quadrant score! For those lucky members that happen to live in a place where they can get the dream-device, below is a video of the overclock, and the instructions for ratcheting it up.

    To each his own. I can't stand having a keyboard I never use, making my phone thick and IMO the X is an ugly device with its hump back and hard buttons on the front. To me the GS2 looks fantastic.

    My droid 2 is not all that thick its perfect size and I would die if I had to type out texts on a phone with no keyboard or do all my terminal commands on one that would be horrid I use ssh a to and wouldent be able to on a on screen keyboard. But do you diagree that I should at least get the option to have a phone with that much power on a phone with a keyboard?

    Sure, and it's only a matter of time before one arrives. Might not be from Samsung but I expect the Droid 3 to be right up there in terms of power.

    It will. I could never go back to a phone with a keyboard. Waste of space imo.

    I agree after switching to the X I could never go back to a keyboard and have more weight and more moving parts.. I am so looking forward to the DroidX2 .. I have seen videos that show 3d Capable video..

    I'm in the camp that thought I had to have a physical keyboard. Turns out I just needed a phone with a decent touch screen. I hate resistive screen right now. Capacitive ftw...After I got my Droid 1 I barely used the slide out keyboard.

    One thing I do miss the slide out keyboard for is playing emulators..yea I think there will be a decent phone with a slide out keyboard thats as powerful as this coming soon, probably from Motorola.

    This GS 2 is looking like a monster phone more n more. I did want the Fascinate and almost switched to a family plan so I could have that and my X. I might do that this time on Verizon or whatever carrier I will be on. I dont think I can choose just one phone this go round...lol

    This is such a SWEET phone, it's exactly what I've been waiting for. But, from what I'm hearing from the internet it's not going to be a 4G Verizon phone. We'll see.

    As far as a keyboard is concerned, I said goodbye to physical keyboards years ago. I used the Sprint Mogul, then the iP****, and then I switched to a D1. I never used the keyboard after having an iP**** because I preferred the screen keyboard even on my Droid. There's a reason keyboards are becoming more and more rare. As people transition to soft keyboards they are realizing that they don't need or miss physical keyboards. But to each his own.

    I just realized if Samsung does with the GS 2 like it did with the GS 1, there might be a keyboard version of the GS 2, but probably not on Verizon.
