Skyrocket Forums Added
A tad late but always worth pointing out if you are not the kind of people who scroll all the way to the end of the forum’s list. Late last week, we decided that the AT&T SGS 2 variant known as the Skyrocket was different enough from the original AT&T SGS2 that rather than having it as a separate sub-section, it would have its own forum. The differences go all the way down to the core of the device as the original SGS2 sports an Exynos 1.2 GHz dual core processor, whereas the Skyrocket is loaded with a 1.5 GHz dual score Snapdragon. On top of that, it boasts a larger screen at 4.5 inches, which makes it match its T-Mobile brother, the Hercules and it comes loaded with Android 2.3.5, which is still not the latest but it is closer than 2.3.4 is. Last but not least, the device is loaded with 4G capabilities, so now you can take advantage of AT&T’s high speed LTE data. The device keeps the beauty of the original SGS2 and basically adds more power to it.
If you already have one or are thinking about getting one, check out some of the most recent developments, which we will talk about shortly.
You can find the Skyrocket’s home on xda right here.
