Will many consumers are waiting for the next iPhone to be released, there are many who prefer the Android platform. Luckily there are plenty of well specified handsets that are due for release on the platform, and in the US one such device is the Samsung Galaxy S II. The device is already available in Europe and has been a major success, but is one of the devices at the center of the legal battle with Apple. The Samsung Galaxy S II is set to be unveiled next week but maybe not on the Verizon network.
According to an article on Drippler.com the much anticipated handset may be missing from the Verizon lineup. Sources that are claiming to be familiar with the matter have told The Wall Street Journal all the other major carriers in the country will be getting the handset.
Verizon are allegedly not going to take the device, and Samsung’s Kim Titus has confirmed it will be revealed next week but wouldn’t give any information on carrier selection. Previously it was rumored that Verizon were going to be the first of the big four carriers to have the Samsung Galaxy S II.
The carrier may have decided to stick with the Samsung Droid Charge as it is compatible with Verizon’s LTE network, and may have the cheaper alternative the Galaxy R from Samsung. There is also the much delayed Motorola Droid Bionic to consider being another reason why Verizon may not be taking the Galaxy S II. It is set to be the first dual-core handset that is compatible with the 4G LTE network.
Many Verizon customers would at least like the choice of the Galaxy S II, and will be puzzled if the handset is not available on the network. The next few weeks are going to be exciting for customers of all the major carriers as a whole host of nice new handsets are released. Consumers will just have to decide what is best for them from the devices available, whether it’s the iPhone 5 or one of the great new Android devices being made available.
Will you be disappointed if the Samsung Galaxy S II doesn’t make it onto the Verizon network?
