Good news, America. The Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-I9100T) recently cleared the FCC. Although there's been no official word yet from either Samsung or AT&T, it's suspected that AT&T may be the carrier to bring this top-notch Android smartphone home. Testing suggests that the Galaxy S II will support AT&T's 850/1900MHz 3G bands, though at CNET we've been using an unlocked version with an AT&T SIM card and receiving HSPA+ speeds (review on its way--check back soon!)
The Galaxy S II has a lot going for it, like a dual-core 1GHz processor, a dazzling 4.27-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It also has quite good cameras--8-megapixel on the back and 2-megapixel on the front--and HD everything; 1080p, no less. This is a handset to keep your eye on, and if the rumors are true, we're looking forward to AT&T punching up its rather lackluster lineup.
