Verizon Wireless has confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that it will not offer the Samsung Galaxy S II. Samsung is expected to introduce the S II to the U.S. market at an event scheduled for August 29 in New York City. It will launch the S II with AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile, but not Verizon. "We have an extensive portfolio that offers customers a great variety of devices, including the Samsung Droid Charge," said Brenda Raney, a Verizon Wireless spokeswoman, to the Journal. The S II was first announced in February at the Mobile World Congress event, and has already sold more than 5 million units across Asia, Australia, and Europe. The Galaxy S II measures 8.49mm, and it uses the latest Super AMOLED plus display technology for its 4.27-inch display. It has quad-band GSM/EDGE and quad-band HSPA at 21Mbps, Bluetooth 3.0 HS, GPS, Wi-Fi, and FM with RDS radios, and a dual-core 1GHz processor. The S II's main camera captures 8 megapixels, full 1080p HD video and has auto-focus and a flash. The secondary camera has 2 megapixels. Media can be shared via DLNA, an the S II will come with either 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage, in addition to a slot for microSD cards up to 32GB. The S II runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Sales dates and prices are expected to be announced on August 29.
