AT&T’s latest Android Smartphone, the already world-renowned Samsung Galaxy S2, is now officially available for purchase online and attaching a price tag of $199, when taken alongside the usual two year service agreement. The S2 is the single most popular and highly sought after Smartphone release of Samsung to date, boasting a dual-core processor, Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread and 1GB of dedicated RAM.
The AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy S2 is slightly smaller than that already available on Sprint, known on the competing network as the Epic 4G Touch, because the Sprint version sports a slightly larger screen which measures in at 5.52 inches compared to AT&T’s 4.3 inches. AT&T users will also be able to benefit from NFC, which suggests that the device is likely to receive the Google Wallet application in the near future.
Buyers are advised to check online reports and availability before considering a purchase, as many brick and mortar stores are currently not offering the S2, while some third-party partners have some excellent offers. Needless to say, those carrying the S2 are also finding demand entirely outstripping supply, with some having cleared their inventories within 30 minutes of the store opening.
AT&T has followed Sprint to become the second US carrier to offer the S2, with T-Mobile next in line to do the same later this month by way of a similar device with a faster processor.
