Samsung Galaxy S 2 US Names Verizon Function, AT&T Attain, Sprint Within
I’m not too sure why the good old US of A has to be different from the rest of the world, but apparently when the Samsung Galaxy S 2 hits the US shores the Android smartphone will be having a name change for three of the US carriers.
Apparently the Verizon model of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread handset will be the Verizon Function, while the AT&T version will be the AT&T Attain and the Sprint model will be the Sprint Within, although of course this hasn’t been officially confirmed.
Not sure why the device simply couldn’t be called the Verizon Galaxy S 2, AT&T Galaxy S 2 and so on, perhaps the carriers feel that have to set themselves apart for all the rest in the world. T-Mobile isn’t on the list so perhaps they are not carrying the handset or haven’t yet decided on a suitable moniker.
Do you like this renaming of a smartphone or would you prefer a handset to be known by one name no matter which carrier it is on?
