With Sprint's version of Samsung's Galaxy S II already in stores, AT&T is also nearing the launch of its own version of the phone.

Samsung's latest Galaxy phone will hit AT&T on October 2nd for $199 with a two contact.  That price point isn't too big of a surprise considering that it's in line with the price of both Sprint's version of the phone and Android smartphones in general. No complaints there.

In case you forgot, the Galaxy S II comes equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos processor, a 4.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen, and 16GB of storage. So it's a pretty good phone, all told.

Now the big question is, where's T-Mobile's version of the Galaxy S II? The company has been pretty sparse on the details so far, only going as far to announce a vague "fall" release date. Hopefully T-Mobile subscribers won't be left out for too much longer.

    No, the big question is, how much is the phone without a contract?

      @angrykeyboarder Nobody buys phones without a contract in the US.

        @ldo17 I wouldn't say nobody. My last contract expired in 2002, and I have bought several phones since that time.
