The title says it all, folks. Samsung Mobile USA on Facebook posted a rather peculiar status update saying that they think the best things often come in four. Random post or vague foresight? We’re betting on the latter. My first though was to be skeptical – this could just be a “reminder” for the 4G-enabled Tab 10.1.

The problem with that theory is that the context doesn’t fit. The ellipsis at the end of the status suggests secrecy and teasing. Also, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with 4G LTE has already been made official. It’s unusual for a company to post a “reminder” about something they’ve revealed and not be clear about what they’re talking about.

Instead, We’re hoping this is a hint that the Samsung Galaxy S II is nearly ready to drop and has been picked up by all four major carriers in the United States. While we don’t expect all four carriers to release theirs at the same time, we shouldn’t go any further than September without all of the big 4 carrying it. We’re just hoping Samsung’s ready to announce something soon. [Samsung Mobile USA FacebookThanks George!]

In directly related news, Verizon is expected to be the first carrier of the device and they’re said to get it near mid August.

[Update]: Looks like I should have stuck to my initial skepticism – another status message from Samsung has been posted. It was only the 4G LTE Tab 10.1. Garrr! I really wish they wouldn’t space incomplete messages so far apart. There’s still hope that there’s some double meaning in here… right? [Samsung Mobile USA Facebook]
