Samsung is bringing the Galaxy S II to the U.S. in three different flavors. Though the handset was first announced at Mobile World Congress in February, the U.S. variants all feature some notable differences when compared to the global version.
Putting all three through their paces, each of the variants has an identical version of TouchWiz on top of Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The displays were insanely impressive, as was the speed of the user interface and responsiveness of the devices.
Here is Phone Scoop's hands-on impression of each of the new handsets for AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.

Samsung Offering Beta Trial of Its Media Hub
Samsung today announced a new beta trial offering of its Media Hub movie and TV content store. The beta trial is available only to the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S II Android smartphone to start.
Unless there is an EPIC II coming out this is a fail on their marketing part.
And I would really like to see a higher resolution display. Especially for a screen as big as the Sprint's Epic.
And speaking of the Sprint's Epic - they dropped the physical keyboard?
I would suggest Samsung to offer the same phones, with higher resolutions, and physical, 5-line keyboards. Some of us just like real keyboards too much and aren't ready to give it up.
