Why the hoopla?
Plenty of people have already moved on to Samsung’s Galaxy S III this year, but the Samsung Galaxy S II, released stateside late last year, showed some nice staying power.
With its big screen and powerful innards, the Android smartphone won enough awards and critical praise to make itself a viable alternative to the iPhone.
Although the Galaxy S II launched in May 2011, U.S. carriers didn’t pick it up until September and October — an eternity if you’re a tech enthusiast jonesing for an upgrade. Carriers, please, don’t let this one slip into the holiday 2012 launch window. People need new phones in the summer, too.
