Samsung Galaxy S II Not Coming To Verizon

According to both the Wall Street Journal and by Verizon spokesperson Brenda Raney, Verizon Wireless will not carry the Samsung Galaxy S II.

“We have an extensive portfolio that offers customers a great variety of devices, including the Samsung Droid Charge,” said Brenda Raney, a Verizon Wireless spokeswoman. She declined to elaborate.

Monday August 29th is set at New York’s Time Warner Center for the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S II and its release date sometime in September on AT&T. The WSJ believes that because they did not carry the phone on Verizon’s network that the device will have a hard time competing with the iPhone. However, Samsung’s choice to be on the AT&T network may do just that, the reason being that the device will be GSM which is compatible in more places of the world than that of CDMA on Verizon. The device will also appear on T-Mobile and Sprint.
