1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Geek.com sounds pretty sure of themselves that this will have a slideout keyboard:

    "Last year, the Samsung Galaxy S phone on Verizon caused quite a bit of controversy for Big Red, as it was one of the first Verizon phones to come with Bing, instead of Google, pre-loaded for many of its services. Controversy aside the Samsung Fascinate was a great phone that sold well for Verizon. This go around, however, Verizon decided they wanted their Galaxy phone to be a little different. Similar to Sprint’s Epic 4G last year, Verizon’s Galaxy S2 phone will have a massive slide out QWERTY keyboard and come with LTE onboard. There’s no mention or leak of a release date, but the Fascinate was the last of the Galaxy S devices to launch last year."

    I think they're wrong about this. I thought this was already reported over a month ago and then quickly debunked stating that Epic 4G clone phone was not going to be a variant of the GSII.

    That Samsung announcement on the 29th can't come soon enough. I'm sick of the speculation and I need some concrete answers on the GSII or else it's Bionic time for me.

    I agree, all the rumors and speculation is getting pretty obnoxious and unnerving, I'd not mind if the SII came with a slider, but only if it remains thin (say a bit thinner than my OG Droid) including LTE. I don't want to sacrifice aesthetics and weight for some keys to tap on, really.

    At any rate I need something solid so I can make a decision soon because my poor Droid has just about had it...=-/

    I really hope it doesn't! It just makes the phone heavier and plus, i like the rectangle look better!
