  1. Hi, Yes, The Samsung Galaxy S2 looks great. I’m thinking of swapping from the HTC Desire S because it is incompatible with Speedtouch, which is my router. I’m not sure whether its because it uses Android technology. Has anyone else had the same problem with Speed touch and if so, is the Samsung Galaxy S2 ok with Speedtouch instead?
    Thanks Guys…

  2. Just bought one really awesome, but will take a few days to get used to it as its so different to my previous one.
