Not so fast! Looks like that upcoming Samsung QWERTY slider headed for AT&T isn’t the Galaxy S II, after all. BGR, who broke the story initially, has received a correction from one of their sources and is now reporting that the sexy slider is a different handset altogether. The confusion arose from the recycling of an old model number initially associated with the Galaxy S II. So AT&T subscribers will be getting the same slim, keyboard-free Galaxy S II headed to other carriers (though it may be slightly retooled), but now we must question where this QWERTY handset fits in. Will it still be partially based on the Galaxy S II spec sheet? Or will it be something a bit more mid-range? We wouldn’t mind AT&T offering this slider as an additional alternate to the S II if the hardware is right.
