Yea, the slim factor of the Galaxy S2 is a tough value prop for Samsung to hold up..
Just look at the size of the board:
It's TINY.. you can see why no duplicate silicon is such an issue
Compare it to the board of a Droid Charge:
Lots of space and three separate chips.. the VIA baseband, the Hummingbird AP, and the Samsung CMC2200
It's huge by comparison..
