Telstra's Samsung Galaxy S II Android smartphone
Telstra has revealed it will announce the launch date for the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S II Android smartphone this Thursday 30 July.
Detailed on Telstra's official Twitter account, Telstra will be the last telco in Australia to launch the Galaxy S II. The phone originally launched on Optus at the beginning of this month, and was then made available through Vodafone about a week later.
Telstra has not announced its pricing plans for the Galaxy S II, but the nation's largest telco is expected to price the phone higher than both of its rivals. Optus offers the Galaxy S II on a range of plans, starting at $0 on Optus’ $79 cap over 24 months, while Vodafone has the device for $0 on its $65 infinite plan over 24 months.
Samsung officially launched the Galaxy S II in Australia last month and described it as "the biggest mobile phone launch for Samsung this year." The news of the Galaxy S II's imminent launch on Telstra follows the announcement that HTC's flagship smartphone of 2011, the HTC Sensation, will also launch exclusively through Telstra in July.
