US Cellular's Samsung Galaxy S II may hit stores on March 1, according to an internal document sent to Android Central. The memo, titled "Samsung Galaxy S II Equipment Launch Announcement" is dated Feb. 20 -- the day before the regional carrier actually announced the device. The memo reads as follows:
The Device Launch Management team is pleased to announce the forthcoming launch of the Samsung Galaxy S II on March 1, 2012.
Samsung and US Cellular are proud to launch the Samsung Galaxy S II a high end 3G Android-powered device. Based upon the success of the Samsung Mesmerize, we have worked with Samsung and [are] now able to offer our customers another great 3G Samsung Galaxy product. Maintaining a strong 3G portfolio is critical to our device line-up and the Samsung Galaxy S II is a perfect fit.
All stores are expected to have the Galaxy S II by March 1, according to the memo, but it also sounds like some may see it sooner. As always, nothing's official until it's official -- we've seen these sorts of things change before. And there's no still mention of an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
