    There're actually more than 2. Just in the US, there're Tmo version has a biggest battery rating than the Sprint version. ATT version has the smallest screen.

    The one you shown above is the Asia version. I have seen it in Hong Kong. The one button makes the device even more closer resemble the look of iPhone. I guess they have to ditch that one button look in the US.

    In the US there are basically two versions of the SGS2. The Sprint version and the *original* AT&T version have slightly smaller batteries (different physical size and capacity), no NFC, and are slightly narrower. The T-Mobile version and the *new* AT&T version (Skyrocket) have the larger battery, NFC, and are wider. The T-Mobile version and the AT&T Skyrocket can use the same battery and case; and the Sprint and *original* AT&T versions can use the same battery and case.

    There is a thread about cases for the T-Mobile SGS2. Sorry, too lazy to post a link. :(

    Before the year is up I'm sure there will be another version out. I'm just guessing.

    When you're looking for a case just make sure it's either T-Mobile specific or for the "T-989" and you'll be fine for the size difference.

    This is actually the International (not just Asian) version.
