This past week seems to be all about what's to happen this coming August and September, which look to be eventful months. Samsung began teasing its Galaxy S II for its US debut in August, while a white version was announced for the UK around the same time. Motorola confirmed that its Droid Bionic will launch in September and also arriving then is its 4G LTE upgrade for Motorola XOOM 3G customers. And of course the other major event that seems increasingly more certain to be in September is Apple's iPhone 5 launch. Continue after the cut for the full list and video roundup.
