In just a few days we'll be covering the Samsung Galaxy S II event in New York City, and expect to have some hands-on time with Samsung's latest and greatest as specced for AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint.

    I'll be renewing my T-Mobile contract soon, I'm so glad to see Samsung Galaxy S II listed as a potential phone :)

    Apple is suing Samsung for making an iPhone look a like. I have my Samsung Galaxy S sitting in front of me, and I have to admit it looks like an iPhone 3GS from the front. This new phone though looks just like the iPhone 4. Does Samsung really want to get sued again?

    I love it! I hope they make an exact clone, but a clone that you can hold any way you like. Now that Steve Jobs isn't around to tell us we are holding it wrong, we will need some amazing and magical AI that can adjust for us retards holding a phone incorrectly.

    Yes, I'm replying to my own comment. I just thought of something.

    Isn't Apple's lawsuit without merit because their phones must be held a certain way and Samsung's phones do not do that. They chose to use their own patent that says you can hold a phone any way you want.

    It's not just like the Iphone; you can hold it any way you wish.

    Apple lost in court on the ripped-off design issue.

    Great job, big V! I've been waiting on this phone - now I'm going to sign up with someone else instead to get it. Way to take choice out of your customer's hands and drive them away!

    Don't bail just yet. Focus on the message. They're going to be absent of the event. That doesn't mean they won't get an SGSII device.
