Samsung's venerable Galaxy S lineup may appear a bit sedate in comparison to the Galaxy S II, but that doesn't mean the company is allowing its former champion to collect dust. As you recall, the 2011 Edition began sprouting along Russia's shores with an upgraded 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255T chip, 14.4Mbps HSPA+ radio and 1650mAh battery -- along with news it would be marketed as the Galaxy S Plus outside of The Federation. True to Sammy's word, the phone is now trekking across Eurasia, where it hopes to join the bicyclers of Holland as they dodge tourists and await net neutrality legislation. Absent any carrier commitments, this 2011 refresh will retail for €449, which could be tempting -- unless you're already pocketing a Galaxy S II, that is. Google's translation of the Dutch PR suggests a launch that's coming "soon," and you're invited to hop the break for some linguistic giggles.
