AT&T will offer the Galaxy Nexus, too. But why call it Galaxy Nexus when you can have your own name – Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, which [name] sounds much easier to remember. Say what? Don’t be fooled by the name change, this bad boy is Galaxy Nexus to the bone with the addition of LTE radio (just like Verizon’s version) and Samsung’s TouchWIZ UI running on top of Android Gingerbread (rather than Ice Cream Sandwich).
In other words, it rocks a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 4.65-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD screen and all other goodies you would expect from a high-end device.
As for the availability information, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD will start selling “in the coming months.” If anyone has idea what that means, feel free to share the wisdom – comments form is all yours.
The price is also a mystery, though it’s fair to argue AT&T can’t be asking more than Verizon, right?
In any case, it’s good to see more operators joining the Nexus party. The hope is that now that you can get the same device from multiple providers, the prices will drop and that’s a good thing.
