I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. You do know the GSII has been in Australia for a while now right?

    1. Not for those people on telstra waiting for an official release.

      1. What about those on Optus or Vodafone? It’s in the country through national carriers so it’s in the country.

  2. Hurry up Samsung! Send the Galaxy S II to our American friends so they can have as much fun as we are having! (Also we need more custom roms :))

  3. fuuuudddggeee you us carriers…just bring it over..god….

  4. ridiculous. I’m struggling to figure why I SHOULDN’T wait for the nexus prime at this point. Why would I want a 3-4 month old phone? Samsung (or the US carriers) really messed up big time.

    1. Yeah, by the time we get it over here, they’re going to be announcing the Galaxy S 3 a few months later. Ugh =/

  5. So Samsung gave SGS II’s to some devs but has yet to release it to the states. Something is very fishy about this scenario. I have a feeling that many problems with Sammy are carrier based. Why would a company give a phone to devs and then not let that phone loose in that region?

  6. anyone NOT belive the Apple Court cases and carrier specific alterations are what really screwed us over and its not specifically Samsungs fault?
