Delayed by Hurricane Irene, the Samsung Galaxy S2 is now officially announced for the United States.
The Samsung Galaxy S2 is now officially coming the United States on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. There is no hard release date yet for all carriers. Sprint is apparently first with the launch of the Galaxy S2 on September 16. AT&T and T-Mobile say that they will start selling the Galaxy S2 in the coming weeks. At least the Galaxy S II did not get new funky names on each carrier as was previously rumored. Only Sprint had to call their Galaxy S2 model Epic 4G Touch.
