So we received this interesting tip this morning from one of our Twitter followers. He said that he had heard from a friend of his who is an AT&T Core store manager that the Austin Texas market was getting ready to rollout 4G/LTE on AT&T and that because of that they weren’t getting the Samsung Galaxy S II.
A call to the MoPac store revealed that the tipper was correct. They don’t carry the Samsung Galaxy S II in store, they can order it for you. Then we called the West 5th street store in Austin. An associate that identified himself as a manager said that they are not carrying the Samsung Galaxy S II or the Motorola Atrix 2 because they are in his words “Planning an aggressive 4G/LTE rollout”.
As the conversation continued he said that they were getting a special version of the Samsung Galaxy S II next month when 4G/LTE launches in Austin Texas and a bunch of other markets. I told him that our contract ends around Thanksgiving (and it does) and he said that if I waited until that time I would be able to get the special version of the Samsung Galaxy S II.
So why is this rumor “qualified” for us find out after the break
