The Samsung Galaxy S II won’t be considered a new device by any means, but that didn’t stop U.S. Cellular from offering the phone to its customers. U.S. Cellular didn’t give a specific release date, but the Galaxy S II will be sold for $229.99 on a two-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate.  Is that pricey? You bet it is.

Unfortunately, the Galaxy S II won’t benefit from U.S. Cellular’s 4G LTE network. That makes the $329 up front payment a lot harder to swallow.

The specs included in U.S. Cellular’s Galaxy S II are pretty standard. It has a 1.2Ghz dual-core Exnyos processor, Android 2.3, a 4.5 Super AMOLED Plus display, 16GB of internal storage and a 8-megapixel rear camera.

The Galaxy S II is expected to get updated to Ice Cream Sandwich within the next couple months or so. Perhaps U.S. Cellular customers won’t be left out.
