In an odd turn of events, Samsung announcement for Samsung Galaxy S II will not including Verizon Wireless (VZW). Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney has also confirmed the announcement and can’t help but wonder why. There are rumors that perhaps Samsung is bringing Samsung Stratosphere, a QWERTY-slider along the same lines as the Epic 4G, as well as the Nexus Prime to Verizon instead. Maybe Google’s takeover of Motorola had some effect. Whose to say, but looks like VZW is out one potentially nice phone. Oh well, at least there is the Droid Bionic. VIVA LA BIONIC!
