In case you’ve been holding off from buying a Samsung Galaxy S II in the USA and you saw that controversial anti Apple commercial for the phone, now it’s the time to get one. AT&T will start selling the white Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket this Sunday, following the black version of the Rocket.

The handset comes with a 4.5 inch Super AMOLED Plus Display, a 1.5GHz dual core processor, both of these features being an upgrade in comparison to the European version, that packed a 1.2GHz dual core Exynos CPU and 4.3 inch display. Another addition is the 4G LTE connectivity on AT&T, that certainly wasn’t available in Europe. The handset will cost $250 with a 2 year contract on AT&T, although the carrier has yet to confirm the offer.

However, with the Galaxy Nexus coming on the 8th, I’d advise you to stay put and have a go at that 720p Ice Cream Sandwich beauty. At least test it before you buy it and compare it to the Galaxy s II. the choice is yours and if you really want the fresh Android, I guess ROMs will also bring it to the Galaxy S II sooner or later…

    just got my Galaxy SII Skyrocket and it is fantastic so far! Being able to use
    the LTE network is fantastic because it downloads and streams everything
    instantly! My Skyrocket often reaches speeds of about 18 mbps where I live. AT&T’s
    LTE network definitely helps with streaming, which is what I do often. I like
    using the DISH Remote Access app from my employer DISH Network to stream live
    TV and recorded shows from my Sling Adapter-connected receiver to my phone
    anywhere I am. Working for DISH and using the app, I’ve had a lot of time to
    use the app, and now that there is LTE available, I can stream faster!
