AT&T Samsung Galaxy S2 Forums Added
A couple of weeks ago, we announced that the new Galaxy S family of phones would have a nice, warm, and cozy spot here on xda. Well, it turns out that Sprint jumped ahead on the game and reserved their own cozy spot for their device, which has seen really active development ever since it was announced.
