Announced by AT&T way back in June, at the same time with the Galaxy Note (which is already available), the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD will not see the light of day on US soil.
According to The Verge, Ryan Bidan (Samsung’s VP of marketing) said that plans to launch the Skyrocket HD have been scrapped because it “didn’t make sense in light of the Galaxy S III announcement.” This likely means the S III will be out on AT&T at some point, although Bidan didn’t confirm that.
The new Galaxy S III is expected to be released in the US starting June, with LTE connectivity on board, so we’ll probably hear soon if it’s headed to AT&T or not.
