AT&T Galaxy S II kernel source code released already by Samsung

Let the hacking, modding and overclocking begin once this device is finally able to be purchased. Samsung has already released the kernel source code for the AT&T version of the Galaxy S II, even though the phone isn't even out yet. We sure wish other companies would do the same (hint HTC). While Samsung released the code for the Epic 4G Touch on launch day, they've gone a step further here and it's already available before the phone itself.

Is your Epic 4G Touch getting hot?

The Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch has just been released to the United States market and everyone and their mother appears to have purchase one. With this comes the possibility for every single tiny flaw in the hardware and/or the software to be uncovered - and of course that's what we want to do, and we want to find flaws as soon as possible so that the manufacturers and/or the carriers can alleviate concerns before they become explosive. Today's report comes from the wild streets of XDA where they say they're getting hot, hot, hot. Temperature-wise on their Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch units, that is, and with both temperatures listed and screenshots shot, we've gotta treat this one as a real concern with need for fix for certain!

Samsung Epic 4G Touch gets the iFixit teardown treatment

iFixit is back with another teardown of an extremely popular smartphone, that being the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch (aka SGSIIE4GT).

From Wi-Fi radios and internal flash storage and more here is where you get to see if the inside is as beautiful as the outside. Check out all the photos after the break.

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Review

Welcome to the United States, Galaxy S II, I see you've got the longest name in the history of smartphones here in your initial iteration! Don't worry, though, it's nothing to be afraid of - you're still the thinnest 4G device on any and every carrier you'll be on here in the states, and with this first launch on the WiMAX carrying carrier, you're round and lovely as well. The Epic 4G Touch has what many might call the most unique look to it of all the Galaxy S II devices out thus far, having a 4.5-inch display, the roundest edges in a Galaxy S II thus far, and almost spherical back corners with a textured battery cover. Four buttons at the bottom and it's lost its international single-center-button charm, will it add up to the legends we've heard of this device as it's been out for the past few months in Europe in Asia?

T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II will feature a 1.5 Ghz dual-core Qualcomm processor

Well folks, this has now been confirmed rather than just a rumor. If sources are correct the Samsung Galaxy S II headed to T-Mobile (aka Hercules) will feature the fastest CPU of all the U.S. Galaxy S II phones and will clock in at 1.5 GHz thanks to Qualcomm. We mentioned this last week but had no confirmation as to whether it would feature the same 1.2 GHz speed as the rest, or be faster.

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Benchmarks vs GSII Original vs SGSIIE4GT NYC

If there's one thing a software developer, a processor manufacturer, and/or a smartphone designer loves (or hates violently) it's a good benchmark. What we've got below is a set of benchmarks run on the brand new Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch right out of the box. These benchmark scores are compared then in brief to both the original Galaxy S II as reviewed by Chris Davies as well as the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch that we saw on the presentation block in NYC not two weeks ago! It's time for some bonus nitpicking to a degree that only your barber would be able to tell!

Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile sporting different dual-core processor

While all variants of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II are running on a 1.2 Ghz dual-core processor made in house by Samsung known as the Exynos SOC.

Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch Unboxing and Hands-on Video

While it's true that we did get to look at this device less than a couple weeks ago for a brief event set up for the release of all the Galaxy S II devices in the USA, we must also acknowledge the fact that before review units hit our hands, no software is final. Therefor let's have a look at the WiMAX version of Samsung's USA GSII effort, the Epic 4G Touch. This device takes the original international version of the Galaxy S II and bumps it up a few notches in several places, most noticeably in both its screen size and its user interface, Samsung's most user-friendly version of TouchWiz yet.

Samsung Galaxy S II AT&T Sign Up Page Live with Details

The team at AT&T are now officially ramping up their online attack for the Samsung Galaxy S II, posting this week their first sign-up page for email updates on the device, orange, black, and blue flying everywhere. Mostly orange though, of course, as AT&T has in recent months been pushing a massively orange-looking ad campaign to work in a rather aesthetically pleasing way with their heavily Blue and White globe logo. Look nice to you here? You betcha. It'd be rather tough to make this device look less than amazing, when you get down to it.
