Samsung Galaxy S II coming to Vodafone in July, prices to be announced closer to launch

Well how about that, just like the original Galaxy S, Samsung is pushing the Galaxy S II out to every major carrier in Australia starting with Optus and sub-carriers to follow. Vodafone has made no mention of the Galaxy S II thus far, however at the Samsung media event taking place now, they mentioned that it is going to all carriers between June and July, with Vodafone obviously being one of the “all carriers”. Samsung also said that Vodafone and Telstra will be releasing their pricing to the public closer to their own launch dates. The quicker more Australian’s can get their hands on the Galaxy S II, the better!

I havent seen any internal docs that say anything about the SGS2 on Voda, apart from being informed by my bosses that it’ll be July (something to do with network upgrades en masse i’d suspect – and possibly the exclusivity of Vodafone India having the handset early)

If i see something i’ll be sure to post, but all the information I’ve seen is what you guys seen now 🙂

This isn’t what I would call surprising considering the carriers that the Samsung Galaxy was on. That being said, I think it will be interesting to see how competitive the pricing becomes. 

Australia still has a somewhat astronomical proportion of iPhone users (last I saw around 70% of the smartphone market was composed of iPhones) and the carriers will be happy with that so I don’t see any company trying to break the bank; yet I’d love to see the carriers treat this phone seriously in the pricing department.

AWESOME, being the uni student that i am, i have been waiting since my contract ended in november for this phone to come to voda (i’d ratehr have a few dropped calls here and there than go to say telstra and go hungry :P)

finally getting rid of my cm7 gt540, many more hacking projects/potential to come from this!
