    The Samsung Galaxy S2 is going to be a great seller, I love that it comes with Android version 2.3 right out of the box, and has a dual core processor. The Samsung Galaxy S2 will go great with my employee Sling adapter that I recently got from DISH Network. With the Sling adapter, I can stream live and recorded TV to my Android device everywhere I have 3G coverage or WiFi. DISH is actually offering Sling adapters for free, if anyone is interested, you can find more information at http://bit.ly/iKbJ4Q.

    There is no need to repartition the device, or use the pit file. Doing so might brick your phone.
