That's still at least more than $200 on top of iPhone 4 prices. But if someone's will to spend over $900 on a phone....

"you can overclock to probably up to 2GHz but for it to be stable you need to up the voltage"

i wonder how many people are going to try that and brick their $900 phone
cool video..but fail for not mentioning how much battery life is affected.

It's hard to guage because it's such a powerful phone, and it's not available here.

If I were to guess, it'll last you a day easy. Also, it depends how you use the thing.

using google currency converter, the purchase price in korea comes to 755CAD.

here its 2 year specific plan contract, a 55$ plan will make the phone about 220$ CAD. and you pay it monthly so 10$ more every month to pay off the hardware.

fuckkkk im on the waitlist, suppose to come friday.

and samsung has bad customer support overseas, but in korea i think its pretty good. already a couple updates were released.

and im guessing the battery life will be better over there since it prbbly wont have NFC and DMB feature.

Nothing has been released for Canada, and very minimal information has been released for the US. By minimal I mean only their names have been released, and a silicone case which will be shared by all 3 carriers in the US.

^Any source? Or just pure speculation?

Does Samsung have any say on how much carriers charge for subsidized phones?

If so, it'd be pretty dangerous for Samsung to allow any carrier to price it that high, considering you can get an iPhone for less than half of that price on the same 3 year plan.

I know it's apples and oranges, but if you offered the average person the two phones at those two prices, I would bet that they would choose the iPhone.

Judging by Samsung's apparent strategy with the original SGS, they want as many people as possible holding a SGS2. It won't happen at that price.

anything over $200 on a 3 yr contract is too much..the majority of the public's going to compare it with the <150 price of getting an ip4...that's why i don't get how they are expecting to sell the arc/play @ 250
