And the Samsung Galaxy S II news just keeps on rolling in.  Talk Android was present at Samsung’s launch event in New York and we were able to get a quick hands-on look at AT&T’s version of the popular Galaxy S II device.  And as you can imagine, the device is super thin (8.89 mm) with a beautiful and vibrant Super AMOLED Plus display.  However, unlike its brethren over at Sprint and T-Mobile, the device is only sporting a 4.3-inch screen.  This is most likely because its big brother, the Infuse 4G, already has a 4.5-inch touch display.  Nevertheless, the device is still impressive and is sure to be a must have handset or this year.  This is as close as you’re going to get to the original Galaxy S II released overseas.  Hit the break for the full list of specs and some hands-on shots of the device.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
