Samsung Galaxy S II - U.S. Cellular

The Samsung Galaxy S II has officially launched on the U.S. Cellular network.

Announced just a few weeks ago, the extremely popular Samsung Galaxy S II has now been officially released by the nation’s sixth largest wireless carrier.  It’s available online today, and beginning March 1 in the carrier’s retail stores.  It is priced at $229.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate.

While it’s great to see this phone making it to so many carriers, we do have to say this one does appear to come with a heck of a lot of bloatware.  Amongst the listed pre-installed apps?  Zappos.  Yeah, we’re puzzled by that one as well.  Just in case you need to buy shoes the moment you activate this phone?
