Default Galaxy S II LTE

currently have a x10 xperia and it looks like the x10 isnt getting any newer than android 2.3, so i'm looking to upgrade.
any opinions on the Galaxy s2 lte? i'm with rogers and don't think anyone knows when the HD model is coming out and i dont want to wait.
also, i definitely want an android phone, so please dont tell me i should look at an iphone or blackberry,
i bought a BB bold 9780 for my brother and dont like it.
i used an iphone 4 for a bit and dont like the desktop icons only crap..
i want widgets.. :P
thanks.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus IMO, but if not the S2 LTE is still a great phone. If you still want some use out of your X10, try to root it and use a custom rom on it.

Galaxy Nexus is an awesome device, but the S2 LTE is also a solid phone.
But if price isn't an issue, Nexus all the way in my opinion.

It's been available for a couple weeks not, but it's out of stock EVERYWHERE so it's hard to get your hands on one.
