Samsung Galaxy S2 Release Date: Delayed Launch Sparks Exodus of AT&T Customers

AT&T has angered customers by delaying the launch of the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S2, which was scheduled to be released on Sept 18.

The Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch has already been released by Sprint last Friday. However, AT&T customers have been left angry with the postponed release of the new device, and the network is already losing customers to Sprint due to the delay.

Eric Echter commented on Betanews, "I have jumped ship from ATT to Sprint. I am tired of being told 'no release date yet' by AT&T reps.”

He added: “To be honest, the family plan I have now from Sprint far exceeds what AT&T can offer. On top of that, I got $250 credit for port-ins from AT&T (available through Oct 1). Sprint actually seems to care about my business also!! Loving the Galaxy S II (Epic Touch 4 G) on my new Sprint package!!"

However AT&T is expected to offer the first GSM Samsung Galaxy S2 variant in the future.

Apparently, its version of the phone is the thinnest smartphone by Samsung with a 4.3 inch display and weighs only 116 g.

It runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and features a 8MP rear camera with flash with HD video recording in 1080p. It also has a front-facing 2MP camera, 1 GB RAM, with an option of 16 or 32 GB internal memory.
