For the first time in 3 years, AT&T brings us a fully-functional, non-butchered flagship device and tags it with the standard $199.99. The crowd goes wild, the sales go through the roof, but something just isn’t the same… it needs to be butchered in some way or another. Samsung Skyrocket is released not even a month after Galaxy S2.
The new brother from retarded mother sports a less efficient CPU (even if rated at higher mHZ), fatter body, worse battery life. Why? To promote the non-existing LTE network aka the stuff of gods that goes beyond the throttled HSDPA+ (“4G”).
So what? Our superstar S2 becomes $50 cheaper, thus cheaper than the worse iPhone 4S and price-matched the new Skyrocket. $150 with a 2-year contract is a legal theft for device like S2, so go get yours before it gets discontinued!
