    Here is some good news for our Android readers in the UK. The Samsung Galaxy S II has been officially confirmed for a May 1st launch, and it will come with the 1.2GHz CPU that was previously rumored. Word on the streets still suggests that folks in the US will get it this month. There is also still no absolute confirmation which carrier will get it, but we will let you know as we find out more. Here's the full press release below:

    Man I wish we could get some kind of verification on this coming to Verizon. I'd be all over this phone.

    Nothing yet, still watching. I just find it incredibly hard to believe that it won't be. But not out of the question.

    the Stealth is actually the Droid Charge..which is the ugliest phone i think ive ever seen. if they released both 4G, i bet the charge wouldnt even compare in sales. its sooo much sleeker and better looking than the charge

    If this Phone does come to Verizon it will Probably be 4thQ. that is if they do it the same way as they did with the Galaxy s1. Verizon was the last to get it..

    Ya I agree I hate the shape of the stealth and am not considering it. I just dont understand why would verizon be last to get this phone? Largest and best carrier= last for new technology? Got thunderbolt late (htcevo4g), got fascinate late (galaxy s on every other carrier) got bionic late (atrix at and t)


    I just dont get why the largest and most reliable carrier cant get the best phones the soonest.

    They really are getting terrible about this. All the cutting edge phones are going to other carriers initially. It's maddening.

    VZW has always gotten phone technology last... but it seems to be worsening.
