Samsung Galaxy S II Launching July 21 For Bell in Canada

Oh Canada, today I wish you were MY native land! We reported not long ago that the super slick speedy sexy Samsung Galaxy S II would be arriving in the great white north on no less than 3 carriers this month. Those of you using Bell can now circle your calendars for July 21st. The sheer power and drool worthy stats of the Samsung Galaxy S II are well known at this point. A 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 4.3" Super AMOLED+ screen, and plenty of other more geeky details make it the top of the line. It has been a bit delayed making it out to all corners of the world though. Canada is one of the later countries to be getting the beast, with Bell getting it not too far from 3 months after the initial launch. Here in the U.S. it still isn't official we'll see the phone. With rumors of carriers losing interest and an ongoing lawsuite from Apple trying to block the sale of several Samsung devices in the U.S. it could be awhile. For those in Canada enjoy your awesome new phone at the end of this month. I will continue to begrudge you, while I try and move on and look forward to a new Nexus to distract myself. [via Twitter]
