Galaxy S II gets a pink makeover in Taiwan

Pink phones have gone out of the mainstream here in the US, at least as far as iPhones are concerned. Don't worry, you can still cover your iPhone in as much pink leather and "real" Swarovski crystals as you'd like at half a dozen carts at you local mall - you too, ladies. But as far as actual phones go, you're pretty much restricted to white or black these days. But if you live in Taiwan, you've got a new option if you like the Galaxy S II as much as we do: Samsung has released the pink version of the international phone in the market.

Android Community Yearly Wrap-Up: 2011

Galaxy S II GPS errors recognized by Vodafone

Whats been happening on these plagued Galaxy S II's is the GPS either takes too long to home in on your location or simply never does. Unlike some carriers Vodafone definitely took these complaints seriously.

Samsung Exynos 5250 running at 2GHz coming by Q2 next year

We've been dreaming about it, but not quite sure when we would see the first Android device clocked at 2GHz (officially of course). The Samsung Exynos chips running at 1.0GHz, 1.2GHz, and 1.5GHz have functioned amazingly well in their Galaxy S II line, and knowing we should see the 2.0GHz SoC in a future tablet is definitely good news. Samsung was very clear this SoC would be geared towards high-end tablets, but maybe we'll find it in a few smartphones too.
