I would have normally blamed AT&T for the slowness of bringing the highly successful follow up to the Samsung Galaxy S to market, appropriately called the Galaxy S II. AT&T after a very slow Android Start, does in fact have a strong green guy army right now. The large 4.5” screen Infuse and HTC Inspire are very nice devices with some high end specs if you like that sort of thing to push them over on customers. not to mention that AT&T already had a measure of success with their own version of the Galaxy S device by Sammie coined the Captivate. AT&T wasn’t alone with their own version of the GS either. Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile all had their own version of one of the most widely adopted device by all carriers that we have ever seen.
So why hasn’t AT&T brought a device into the fold that sold more than 3 million devices overseas in just 55 days and sold 5 million in just three months? Well, it isn’t just AT&T, none of the US Carriers are feeling the SGS2 love. For some reason, Samsung has taken their sweet time bringing this Android beast to the US Market. Today however, we have some good news from the FCC, that there is yet still some light at the end of the tunnel that we may yet see the SGS2 this summer.
So keep the faith Galaxy S 2 fans, the 4.3” Super AMOLED screen sporting a 8 megapixel camera and blazing fast dual core 1.2GHz Cortex A9 processor may become reality yet. Also, watch for a slide out QWERTY keyboard version from Samsung as well.
