T-Mobile Galaxy SII Gets 1.5GHz Qualcomm Dual-core, Epic 4G Touch User Guide, Honeycomb ROM for Flyer [from AL]

Another big day in the world of non-Verizon Android news.  The T-Mobile Galaxy SII is going to be a BEAST even without the Exynos processor, Epic 4G Touch potential owners can learn all there is to learn about the device now, and we are starting to see Honeycomb ROMs for the HTC Flyer – and yes, now we want one.

To stay current on devices headed to carriers other than Verizon, be sure to subscribe to Android Life.

    Nice use of non-DDR2 ram. This effectively should run slower than the Vigor.

    I’ve only been in the Android world for about a year now, and realize that this site seems to focus a lot around Verizon and its products/services. However, Big Red seems to be consistently letting the customer base down by a whole slew of things (higher prices, no S2, tier pricing increases, extensive bloatware, CDMA, etc). SO – why the loyalty? If a massive wave of tech-savvy people were to shift to TMO or Sprint, their increase in revenues would allow them invest in their networks. Verizon’s 4G LTE may be fast, but who says the other carriers can’t do the same once a grip of people move over? Maybe then, and only then, will Verizon actually start listening to sites like this one…….

      Verizon’s network is the best, that won’t be changing anytime soon.  Still, many of us are fed up with Verizon’s bs, I’m ready to leave them, the only problem is none of the other carriers are any better for various reasons.

      Not knocking on ya, but the Droid-life site is really the Verizon Droid site. Hence ” droid-life.” Android life is for Android devices in general. Droid life became so popular due to the actual Droid

        Btw, I think there will be a slow shift back to the original Android life site now that all the carriers are really starting to expand their device lineup. Before the original Droid, it was a pretty weak community.

        • Android-life wasn’t even a site until well after this one so what do you mean our was a pretty weak community before the Droid ¹?

        I did not know that. Thanks! I’m not trying to put anyone down, I’m just curious. I just get bummed out when it really seems like we, as consumers, really only have VZN, ATT, TMO, and Sprint to choose from if we’re serious about cell coverage and abilities. And judging by most of the responses, VZN seems to be the ONLY one worth fighting for. Maybe a large-scale consumer shift would do the telecom industry some good.

      The only carrier that has a “true” unlimited in SPRINT, and we all know how sprints service is.  T-Mobile is unlimited, but they do throttle you down when you reach 2g’s  They put that in the disclosures.  What is so bad about CDMA honestly.  I dont know why that would be a bad thing.  Bloatware, well every carrier does that.  When AT&T started selling Android devices, they blocked any installs of .apk’s and forced you to use the market.  
      Hopefully the PRIME will live up to the hype and be the S2 for verizon.
      You pay more for the best service, best coverage overall.
      The building I work @ is an AT&T building, but yet verizon gets the best coverage in the building.

    Verizon Loyalist Jealous of all the GS II’s 🙁 They better have something really fracking good up their sleeves or I’m going to lose my mind.

      I honestly have no problem with the SGS II’s not landing on Verizon. The bionic is miles ahead of what people are making it out to be and Samsung appears to have something on the way for us that  should land by the end of the year. I’m pretty confident in the as they aren’t really the delay artists that Motorola has become.

        See I don’t like the Bionic at all, I went to the store and played with it for a good 10 minutes and was completely unimpressed. Yes it was snappy, but a few minutes web browsing and the screen instantly turned me off. Plus I despise Blur or whatever they call it now. If it was 6 months ago the Bionic may have been up there but I’ve been sitting on 2 upgrades for almost a year waiting for something worth buying and I’m still here tapping my foot.

    • Bionic

      yes its called the Samsung Prime.  It will be better than the SGS2

    • Thatsjared87

      I should just take one for the team and get the Bionic, because I know the day I buy it they’re going to announce the Samsung Nexus Prime Quad Core 5G for Verizon

    Is it possible for someone to make a full Honeycomb rom for phones with big screens like the thunderbolt, droid 3, bionic, and all the other fast phones with big screens? and with all the features and widgets of honeycomb. but of course changing the size and resolution of everything.

    • Kixofmyg0t

      Yeah it’s possible…..just don’t expect to be able to use ur phone afterwards. Honeycomb isnt a phone OS.
