A Verizon spokesman confirmed in a telephone interview Friday that Verizon won't sell the Galaxy S II, noting that Verizon already has an extensive portfolio of Android smartphones that includes the Samsung Droid Charge.
Verizon has a wide portfolio of dual-core smartphones and several that run on its 4G LTE network. A leaked Verizon document released on the IGN website in early August indicated Verizon would be offering several new phones, including the Samsung Stratosphere. Some bloggers say the Stratosphere is actually Verizon's version of the Galaxy S II, although Verizon won't comment on that.
Next, there’s a version of the Galaxy Tab 8.9 with LTE, featuring a 1280 x 800 panel, 1.5GHz dual-core processor (presumably the same as the Galaxy S II’s), Android 3.2, and a 3-megapixel camera. Given another bit of very possibly legit information we got this morning, a Samsung Galaxy S II upgrade is on the way as well, this time with a slightly larger 4.5-inch display and 4G LTE capabilities.
Verizon is certainly on the list for future iPhone devices, so carrying a Samsung Galaxy S, perhaps the iPhone’s biggest competitor yet, may not be in the cards. This device is a 4.3-inch display having dual-core 4G LTE Android much in the same way the Galaxy S II is a 4.3-inch display having dual-core and possibly 4G LTE-having device of the future.
