Samsung Galaxy S II: reborn in white

Samsung Galaxy S II: reborn in whiteThere appears to be a resuscitation policy in mobile-land: if you want to double the shelf life of a product, whiten it up!

The white iPhone 4 and white BlackBerry Bold are a couple of names that spring to mind, and now the white Galaxy S II is about to land.

Not that Samsung's favourite handset is getting on - indeed, it's only been out a few months. But eager to keep sales high (as we reported yesterday, Samsung has passed the five million mark in 85 days), the South Koreans have decided to remould the S2 in white. And it'll be available next month.

The news comes not courtesy of Samsung itself, but instead eminates from online retailer Clove, which has put up a placeholder page claiming the Galaxy S II White will be for sale SIM-free from August 15th, with a price tag of £492.

With no picture to go on, we're having to make some assumptions here, but odds are it will be exactly the same form factor as the current S II but with a white faceplate, Home button and rear.

That is, of course, providing Samsung doesn't follow Apple's example and promise a white phone only to then take 10 months to actually deliver it. In that case, we've plenty of time to save up.

Oh snap! I knew this was going to happen.

I was holding out, holding out, holding out (in the hope of getting a white SGS2)... and then weeks after I buy it, they announce a white one! :(

Well it's pretty obvious what you need to do now - learn from Apple owners. Sell yours on Ebay for half the price (with everyone else doing the same) and quickly run to the store and grab a white one. :p

its such an outstanding phone, the best I have ever had.. so I can forgive them this time and stick with black.

Once you go black, you never go back!

You just missed one on eBay for £270... ended 20 minutes ago.

iPhone 4's might be under £250 very soon. If Apple releases iPhone 5 and 4S, it possible that 4S will be in £300 range. Expect to see old ones for £250.
