While many in US are still waiting for the popular Samsung Galaxy S II to be officially announced here, Samsung is trying to get as much attention possible for the big event. This time, the Space Balloon project will carry the high tech cargo as high as 100,000 feet somewhere above Nevada and will send back some live streams with what it sees. In the process, Samsung will get priceless media coverage and prove how much more resistant their products is compared with everything else 😉
That being said, I have a feeling more press coverage is not necessarily what Galaxy S II needs. What it does need though is a way to convince the lazy US carriers to support it officially already, ideally for a reasonable price. It was already announced in Canada after all for around $170 with contract. Rumors have it that AT&T will get it in August under code name Attain, but we’ll believe it when we actually see it. And you can be sure we’ll review the AT&T version as soon as we can have it in our hands.
