i think the problem is that AT&T has not said ANYTHING. Other than the 2 or 3 reps that I have spoken with who seem not to even know what I am talking about when I ask about the new Galaxy S2. These reps aren't acting secretive, they act like I am the first person to even mention that the phone is coming to AT&T. It is the most baffling experience! The only other phone that receives this kind of secrecy is the iPhone.
Speaking of the iPhone, Samsung should be the most upset about the delay of the phone's release. As many others have said, AT&T is going to get the contract whether customers buy the Galaxy or the iPhone. The closer the release date of the iPhone gets, the easier many people are going to find it to wait and pass the Galaxy over. For those who are android or nothing, the Nexus Prime will be out in November at the latest. I can't understand why Samsung isn't raking AT&T over the coals and putting all the blame on them, UNLESS the problem is with Samsung.
It makes no sense to delay this hyped up phone so much that it competes with the holiday phones coming out this year or the beasts that are on the horizon for next year. Phone companies are going to have to realize that these 2 year contracts far outlast the technology of the devices that are being manufactured these days.
I was wholly on board for the Galaxy S2 on Sept 18. As it gets closer to Oct. 21 (iPhone) and to the release of Ice Cream Sandwich (Nexus Prime release will coincide with this), I am close to relinquishing my seat on the bandwagon.
