Is the Samsung Hercules US only?

I'd be quite interested in a 4.5in Samsung Galaxy S II!

Will be HSDPA++, or whatever you would call 42Mbps speeds. Only on T-Mobile network in US. Europe does not have necessary infrastructure yet.
T-Mobile runs it's 3G on 1700Mhz band, which does not exist in EU. Tricky question is whether 42Mbps is supported across all band or just 1700Mhz. When EU eventually upgrades to 42Mpbs would it work on 2100Mhz band?
Three UK runs on 2100Mhz, so this phone would work. Someone has to verify Vodafone and O2. I only have Atrix from US and it's world phone.

It's US only, night sure if an imported one would work in the UK, as I don't know what network it's on.

US T-Mobile Brand. Will work with in UK if unlocked and imported. Might not get 4G speeds in UK.

Definitely won't get 4G speeds, HSDPA+ isn't even 4G :p. But yes, T-Mobile USA phones do work in the UK, my mate has a Sidekick 4G which once he unlocked works fine on his 3 UK SIM card.
