Samsung Galaxy S2 variants

During trip back at Malaysia, I realize the Galaxy S2 variant there is i9100T. Which makes me wonder what are the difference.

[UPDATE, Jan 19] CyanogenMod wiki has a better list of SGS2 variants with support status comments.

After Googling around, I came to conclusion that all the variants have:

SAME hardware Specifications

and the DIFFERENCES are:
  • The I9100 supports 3G 900/2100Mhz and the I9100T supports 3G 850/2100Mhz 
  • The difference in SAR value, as shown in Samsung Website.
    GT-I9100P - 0.362 W/kg
    GT-I9100 - 0.338 W/kg
    GT-I9100M - 0.338 W/kg
    GT-I9100T - 0.285 W/kg
    GT-I9100G - 0.247 W/kg (different processor - OMAP SoC)

Quote from Samsung Website:
This phone meets European Union (EU) requirements concerning exposure to radio waves. Your mobile phone is a radio transmitter and receiver. It is designed and manufactured so as not to exceed the limits for exposure to radio-frequency (RF) energy, as recommended by the EU Council. These limits are part of comprehensive guidelines and establish permitted levels of RF energy for the general population. The guidelines were developed by independent scientific organizations through the periodic and thorough evaluation of scientific studies. The limits include a substantial safety margin designed to ensure the safety of all persons, regardless of age and health.

The exposure standard for mobile phones employs a unit of measurement known as SAR (Specific Absorption Rate). The SAR limit recommended by the EU Council is 2.0 W/kg.*

SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions with the phone transmitting at its highest certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual SAR level of the phone while operating can be well below the maximum value. This is because the phone is designed to operate at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a base station, the lower the power output of the phone.

Before a new model phone is available for sale to the public, compliance with the European R&TTE Directive must be shown. This directive includes as one of its essential requirements the protection of the health and safety of the user and any other person.

Generate GoDaddy SSL Certificate (.crt) for Azure Websites (.pfx)

Step 1: Getting GoDaddy SSL cert.
Let's say you have a domain name of You'll first need to generate the the .csr file for GoDaddy with the following command:

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout -out

This gives you 2 files: - This is the private key - This is the Certificate Signing Request

Copy the content of file to the SSL signing authority (GoDaddy).

Once approved, GoDaddy give you back a .zip file with the following 2 files:

18f1c77f369c0b59.crt - This is your cert
gd_bundle-g2-g1.crt - This is the GoDaddy Certificate Chain

Step 2: Convert a CERT/PEM certificate to a PFX certificate
openssl pkcs12 -export -out -inkey -in 18f1c77f369c0b59.crt

Step 3: Certificate to Upload to Azure.

Step 4: Assign SSL Bindings.

Step 5: Done!
