    Just as we thought might happen, because of hurricane Irene, the Samsung Press event in NYC to herald the launch of the Galaxy SII phones in the U.S. was postponed. It will now be tonight instead of last night. Furthermore, our flight to NYC was cancelled because of the hurricane, so we won't be there Live! at the event as we had intended. However, our great staff will still be covering any news that comes out of the event tonight.

    One of the primary things we are expecting to be announced is of course the official launch of the various versions of the SGS2 here in the States. Verizon may be "bowing out" in order to focus on the Samsung Nexus/Droid Prime, but of course the other three carriers will release their variants of the phone. We already have an idea of the names of these devices:
    • Sprint = Samsung Epic Touch 4G
    • AT&T = Samsung Attain
    • T-Mobile = Samsung Hercules
    We will keep you informed after the event.

    I just happen to have my only class of the day from 6pm to 7:15 :/ Just my luck. I guess I'll check everything out after it's over.

    I think the Samsung Galaxy SII and Bionic could have been HUGE if released around May or June.

    If either phone had been out three months ago, I can guaruntee that I would own one of them right now. Instead, I still have my D1 and I will likely never own either.

    I still think they will be popular/successful phones, but their impact will be greatly muted by the fact that the iPhone5 and other great Android devices are just around the corner.
