Samsung Galaxy S II Begins Arriving In T-Mobile Stores In Preparation For Launch

For those of you counting down the minutes and the seconds to the Samsung Galaxy S II pre-order perhaps this image will let you know that T-Mobile is ready and waiting. T-Mobile corporate stores across this great land are beginning to receive their inventory of the Galaxy S II and we’re being told some stores are expecting shipments of 50 plus devices.

Does that indicate that T-Mobile is preparing for a very big launch of are they just playing it safe? Either way, your chance to buy your very own Galaxy S II is almost upon you so I hope you and your credit card are ready.

    All that power in the phone, and still poor sound quality by t-mobile.

    Nexus Prime specs: “A new batch of rumored specs have surfaced over on GSM Arena, and these seem to be more in line with what we’d expect of a new Nexus. According to an anonymous Google employee, that 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display mentioned above is just about the only spec to make the final cut. The processor, however, is more likely to be a dual-core 1.5GHz Exynos (that’s right) with an accompanying dual-core PowerVR SGX543MP2 graphics chip. That rear facing camera? Try 8 megapixels with a newly beefed up sensor. The handset should also ship with a girthy 2,050mAh battery fully capable of juicing this apparent LTE / CDMA / GSM Android monster. WiFi a/b/g/n, NFC”

    I don’t see T-Mobiles selling strategy with the two new phones coming out. Both of which will cost you at least $300 up front, that’s way too much, especially for a company losing its customer base faster than ever. I am a full time student and a part time worker, $300 upfront is more than I ever want to spend on a new phone.

    Hopefully the Nexus Prime doesnt wait too long to appear at Best Buy for T-Mobile, allowing people to bypass the mail in rebate shenanigans.

      Nexus Prime is only exclusive  to Verizon wireless

      • Evan Carter

        Has the iPhone 5 rumor not taught you anything? If anything it will be a timed exclusive.

    take it with a grain of salt.

    i walked into my local corporate store and asked if they had a dummy unit i could fondle and when this was coming out, either the 10th or 12th.  they didn’t have a dummy unit, but i DID get to fondle the real thing pretty much right out of the box unpowered.  if felt pretty good in my hand and it pretty much took up the same amount of space as my vibrant.  i don’t think the screen size and by proxy phone size is going to be much of an issue.

    i also was told that they were planning on releasing on the 12th.  the store had 40 units just to make sure that stores had them and they were expecting another shipment in next week.  unless there is a change in plans between now and then, (more than likely leaked here first!) the device will drop officially when they said it would release.  no word on pricing on the device without a contract, they don’t even know yet but expect it near the $500 mark.

    also props to david.  the associate i was talking with said that they got most of their news from tmonews when it comes to devices and policies from t-mobile.

    Did you guys see that video of the
    Telus sgs2 version? unfortunately that version was ok but had a noticeable lag that the other versions with exynos didn’t have

  • Davenycept

    I thought it was suppose to have quadrant scores on the 3000′s+..the telus version was only 2200..I know there’s not setting but still..it seems like a sensation overclocked.. hopefully tmobile will get some the bugs out

  • SJ

    For those who care  there is an interesting article about Tmobile’s current struggles on the Bloomberg website.  It discusses the pricing strategy and why Tmoblie cannot be more aggressive right now, and also quotes analysts who think Tmobile will end up losing about 1.2 million post paid customers this year as people don’t want to sign a 2 year contract with a  company in so much turmoil that may not even exist

    • Calvin

      Talk about a depressing article…

      • SJ

        Unfortunately, Tmobile doesnt seem to be doing much to change that.  As a current customer whose contract expired several months ago and who probably will not be with Tmobile much longer, Ive been extremely disappointed with the service and total apathy.  You’d think you’d get some kind of communications from Tmobile when your contract is up like I did in the past….Thanking you for business, offering you incentive to renew contract and stay.  NADA.  Meanwhile service has gone down…Employees Ive dealt with have been incompetent at best and rude at worst…Marketing seems off their game…and seems to be no efforts in trying to keep existing customers.  Everything is for newbies.  It makes no sense.  People are either going to go for the high end, super-fast phones or iPhones on other networks, or go for the cheap Androids on prepaid unlimited plans.  That leaves Tmobile with nothing.  Not competing on quality, reputation or price.  (And if you like Tmobile coverage, you can get their service (at least for now) with several resellers at a fraction of the price)

          Yeah… I echo your comments in quadrophonic stereo. Been with T-mobile for 2 years, contract is up, had @Home service too. If they don’t have iPhones by 10/16, which they won’t, I am NOT signing another 2-yr sentence of below par Mickey mouse phones and service. No incentive to stay.

      Those losses were anticipated and the contract between the parties addresses them. In fact, AT&T publicly stated that it expected by the time the deal closed T-Mobile will have lost 8 to 10 million subscribers (including those who would not switch to AT&T).

    I remember when I discovered TMoNews back in May 2009, or somewhere thereabouts.

    I recall when the Touch Pro2 was debuting in August 2009 and there was all the talk about it. There were some pictures posted in here of someone who had taken some pics inside a store. The concept was similar to this shot and talk.

    What an exciting time this must be for those of you waiting to get your SGS II. If I was getting one I would take that pic of boxes stacked and make it my wallpaper for the week. :)

  • thebigdawg

    I have been with T-Mobile since I was a beta customer on the Omnipoint network.  Leaving for AT&T and the iPhone 4S!

    With all these comments about not wanting to get on a phone on T-Mobile with everyone else bailing, look at the upside… The more people that bail and go to another network, the more bandnwidth that is available to everyone else that stays…  Just a thought.  I’ll be picking up my SGSII next Wednesday.

  • Eric Filarski

    Thanks for 7 years T-Mobile but Sprints had me for the last 2+ weeks and not 1 issue.  and my SGS2 is amazing.
