It was around this time last year that Samsung announced the original Galaxy S. Ever since then I’ve laid awake at night wondering just what the S stood for. I’ve even awaken in a cold sweat after dreaming about it. Finally I decided to ask you, dear Techcessorites, what it could possibly mean. And you said:
“Samsung, dummy! Samsung Galaxy Samsung.”
“The S stands for Slap. Remember back in the day when people would challenge you to a duel with a slap? Well, imagine doing it with your phone. Going around slapping people in the face like wappap! Let’s duel!”
“It probably stands for scientology. Tom Cruise is a scientologist. Tom Cruise is from another galaxy. Think about it!”
Well, Jeneva, I did think about it. And I came to the conclusion you’re all totally crazy. With the announcement of the Galaxy S’ successor, the “creatively” titled Galaxy S II, I’m starting the think the S simply stands for sexy. Because this phone is very attractive and one of the few I’d consider making sexy time with (don’t judge).
The original Galaxy S was pretty thin, but the Galaxy S II has clearly taken Kate Moss’ motto to heart. At 8.49mm thick it’s the thinnest smartphone ever. Inside all that thinness is a dual core 1GHz chip developed by Samsung powering Android 2.3 (the delicious Gingerbread). The speedy little chip coupled with Android allows for fast web browsing, true multi-tasking, a responsive 3D user interface (called TouchWiz 4.0) and improved 3D (no Avatar) graphics for games and videos. The Galaxy S II also includes access to Samsung’s four new content and entertainment hubs, seamlessly integrated to provide instant access to music, games, e-reading and social networking services.
Other than that you’ve got a very sexual 4.27-inch 800 x 480 Super AMOLED Plus display, an 8 megapixel camera in back with 1080p video capture and a 2 megapixel cam up front for all your video conferencing needs. Not quite sure when this phone will land or for how much, but the original was announced in March and released in June so I’d expect to start seeing these around then.
