Samsung Galaxy SII, AT&T, slide-out QWERTY keyboard
Aha! It seems my guesswork is not that bad, the rumored AT&T Smartphone that I blogged about yesterday is the AT&T’s version of Samsung Galaxy II, unlike the original Galaxy SII Smartphone, this one would be having a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
It seems that AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy SII Smartphone a.k.a. Samsung Attain would be hitting AT&T stores next month, the official date is not confirmed yet.
On the other hand Verizon, one of major competitors of AT&T in United States in also planning to launch Samsung Galaxy SII under the name of Samsung Function, it’s official that this Gingerbread Smartphone would be hitting Verizon Stores on 12th of August. Although, I am not sure whether it would be having a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
Several Leaked images of Samsung Attain has been blogged by Boy Genius Report and the images suggest the Smartphone is a replica of Samsung Galaxy SII in terms of configuration.
The leaked images suggest that Samsung Attain has model number SGH-I927 and runs on Android v2.3.4 Gingerbread. Although it would be heavier than Original Samsung Galaxy SII (with no slide-out QWERTY Keyboard) but still quite lighter than other Smartphones that accompany a slide-out QWERTY Keyboard.
The Hardware specs on Samsung Attain are exactly the same as on Original Samsung Galaxy SII, check them out:-
Samsung Attain Tech Specs
- Android OS v2.3.4 Gingerbread (as mentioned before)
- 1.2-GHz dual core processor (some rumors suggest it would be upgraded to 1.4GHz to take on iPhone 5)
- 1 GB of RAM
- 8-megapixel primary camera with dual LED flash
- 2-megapixel secondary camera

- Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
Reactions on this “new” slide-out Galaxy SII have been mixed, some love while some don’t. I don’t mind using Swype for typing messages and emails, and since I don’t do it often, I would prefer the Original Galaxy SII, what about you?
