The Galaxy S II is coming in the next few weeks to 3 of America's top four networks. The best model appears to be on Sprint's network (left), but all sound pretty nice.
Verizon is left out of the GS II party -- for now

Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (SEO:005930) scored a sales hit with its Galaxy S smartphone, powered by Google Inc.'s (GOOG) industry-leading Android operating system.  Now the phone's successor -- the Galaxy S II -- has been officially announced for three of the U.S.'s top four carriers.

The release comes just days after the official Samsung announcement of a larger-screen Galaxy S II variant and just weeks after pictures of the upcoming models leaked to PocketNow.

As rumored, the phone will launch on AT&T, Inc. (T) [press release], Sprint Nextel Corp. (S) [press release, spec sheet], and Deutsche Telekom AG's (ETR:DTE) T-Mobile USA [press release] -- America's second, third, and fourth largest networks, respectively.  Noticeably absent from the party is Verizon Communications, Inc. (VZ), America's largest wireless network.

Moving on to the phones themselves, you'll notice some slight differences in the various models, which can be seen below:

The Sprint version arguably sounds the best with a true 4G modem, larger screen, and exclusive larger battery.  It also is arriving the first.

All three of the phones will start off running Google's latest Android operation system, Gingerbread, and will eventually receive an update to Ice Cream Sandwich -- a new release of Android that's coming this fall.

Samsung brags that the new phone is the world's "thinnest 4G phone" (8.89 mm).  Sounds about right.  If you're in the market for an Android, you'll definitely want to check these out as they're some of the best  the market has to offer.

That's you right?

It was actually a thoughtful comment... I voted you up, since I hadn't left a comment & could still vote...
Do you represent the typical consumer population? Oh wait, you're a geek. Well, this figures :) Sure for basement dwelling geeks Android is a cool toy - see ma, I can flash my ROM!

Maintaining security has nothing to do with being a "geek". I admit being a geek/technology enthusiast helps, but if you don't maintain security you're endangering yourself financially.

Nah, I like Dead Space on my Playbook better, thank you.

Which is also on Android (Xperia Play exclusive, sadly, for now... but not due to HW constraints). :)

Thank you for proving my point!

Yeah that was a post about prosthetics, not cybernetics but whatever

"I admit being a geek/technology enthusiast helps" <<== Thank you for proving my point!

Now, Jason, could you please stop lying about RIM like you did here:

I posted a bunch of critique there debunking your lies, hopefully you will manage your Android zealotry bias better in your future posts here. Good luck with that, Jason.
