    Doesn’t it do LTE in the UK?

  • guitarist5122

    Wow, that’s super cheap. Did a quick conversion check on google and that comes to roughly $110 with a new plan agreement.

    • Brian Menius

      … but still $800 off-contract. It’s going to be painful.

      • Joshuahill

        Really painful

  • dara_parsavand

    The question from those in the US is why again are we waiting longer for US versions. Granted, it isn’t nearly as painful as when the SII was released, but still – given we are using a very similar version (maybe there are some crystals for frequencies that are different here, I’m not sure), why can’t we all get this great new phone at the same time? Is it the carrier’s fault again?

    • C-Law

      Crystals?

      • dara_parsavand

        Sorry I don’t know much about RF design. I meant whatever hardware is needed to do different frequencies. Crystals can be used as frequency sources but may or may not have anything to do with differentiating in the cell phone world. If the UK hardware is identical to US then it is someone being late with testing I suppose.

        Enjoy your phone UK users!

        • ffolkes

          I think the poster above you doesn’t realize crystals are really used in electronics…

          You are most likely correct, although I’m sure it’s an entire SoC that needs replacing, as the differences between GSM and CDMA are more than just changing an oscillation source.

          However I think it was already posted via FCC documents that the major carriers will be offering very different versions of the GN2 – like they did with the GS2.

      • supremekizzle

        Dark Crystals? O.O

    • ehBrY

      I think it might partially have to do with FCC approval.. Back in the days before 3G it used to take manufacturers as long as almost a year to get shipping to the US these days it has improved but I think it still can take up to 2 months

    • kev2684

      different carriers, different radios, cdma and gsm,

  • angeliq_supermodel

    It’s NOT available on o2… I’ve been trying to get one all day and they say it’s not available!

    • Annoyed User

      It is, try Phones4U.. But only if you want White.

  • Marc Barbieri

    Where can I get an unlocked version to use with Straight Talk?

    • ReverseRoxas

      Nowhere right now..

    Best phone of 2012
