Invitations have just arrived for a media event to be hosted by Samsung on August 29th in NYC. The guest of honor? Why that would be the Samsung Galaxy S II. The agenda? The US launch of the highly-anticipated device that has been available in other parts of the world for a few months now. It looks like we will miss the August launch Samsung’s JK Shin promised (unless you count an announcement in the final days of August as a launch), but the good news is a September release seems more than likely. The private event for members of the press and media will introduce us to the US carrier variants of the Galaxy S II, and we’ll be on the scene bringing all the live coverage you could crave.
