AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket comes in white December 4th

There's only three phones that use AT&T's 4G LTE network so far: the upcoming LG Nitro HD, the HTC Vivid, and the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. You can get any of them in any color you want, so long as you want black. But come December 4th, you'll have at least one more choice, as the Skyrocket follows its Galaxy S II predecessors in offering an arctic white option.

The Skyrocket soundly beat its launch partner the HTC Vivid in our head-to-head review, making it the best choice for anyone looking for LTE speeds on AT&T. That's not to say that the Vivid is without its charms, but the Skyrocket's brighter screen, better battery life and screaming 1.5Ghz dual-core processor make it one of the best phones available for AT&T right now. That might change when the LG Nitro HD lands, also on December 4th, sporing a gorgeous 720p IPS display - we'll see.

The white version of the Galaxy S II Skyrocket is otherwise identical to its more somber progenitor, and will come in at the same $249.99 price tag. If you're tempted by the glossy new facade, make sure to check out our extensive review. Don't need LTE? You can save a few bucks on T-Mobile with a white version of the original Galaxy S II.

    Hmmm…I wonder how many people will be standing in line in the night and getting pepper sprayed for this Skyrocket? I know I won’t be one of them!

    I
    have a white Galaxy SII Skyrocket coming in the mail, and I hope it is as great
    as they say. Being able to use the LTE network is going to be fantastic because
    downloads and streams are instant! I know AT&T recently released LTE
    service where I live. LTE definitely helps with streaming, which is what I do
    often. I like using the DISH Remote Access app from my employer DISH Network to
    stream live TV and recorded shows from my Sling Adapter-connected receiver to
    my phone anywhere I am. Working for DISH and using the app, I’ve had a lot of
    time to use the app, and now that I have an LTE phone on the way, I will stream
    even faster!
