Anyone hear anything?
There are a few posts here:

With some fairly good information. It looks like it's going to be Q3 2011. Hopefully.
you talking about the US release?
i use this page to see releases, it gets updated. i believe its still the Q3 for US.
Samsung Galaxy S2 Release Dates
Qtr 3 for AT&T
yep, you guys are in for a long wait if you want one subsidized.
Samsung is going to lose a lot of US business to other dual-core devices being pumped out before then.
Are there other dual core devices scheduled for U.S. release before then?
there have been a few released already.
Atrix 4G - AT$T
Droid X2 - Verizon
LG G2x - T-Mo
and there are rumors of the Droid 3 releasing in June with Tegra 2 in it but i find this hard to believe since the Droid 1/2 were equipped with a TI OMAP SoC. so i think it'll ship with the new TI OMAP4 (pure speculation).
the Evo3D also launches in June for Sprint. so come the end of June, there will be a dual-core choice for each main US carrier, with more on the way. this is why i say Samsung is gonna lose some business here. a few are gonna get tired of waiting for Q3, and even more so with no official US dates announced thus far.
edit: yep, forgot about the HTC Sensation 4G also for T-Mo
Not to mention htc's phones (sensation june 8th; evo3d one day)
I think the problem with us is that the us carriers demand customizations to be 'different' (this is often beyond just frequency) and that causes delays. Also after hardware changes; they often want to customize the software which adds more delays.
As a consumer we don't want the carries customization(s) (which usually make the device worse not better). We just want the device
exactly! this is where most of the delays come from, including software updates. another big reason why i've imported a SGS2
I fail to understand why Samsung can't at least say something, even if it's heavily hedged. "We're hoping for a [insert date] release, but we can't promise" would save them a good deal of business. Lots of people would wait if they just knew it was going to show up eventually. It is frustrating when the carriers pretend it doesn't exist.
You can get them in the US:
