While the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Samsung's new 5.5-inch phablet, has launched in other parts of the world, it's not going to land in the United States until October 24th or later. That is when Samsung will be unveiling the device, which improves on the original Galaxy Note in a number of ways, to the American public.

With its 4G LTE speeds, quad-core processor, improved S-Pen stylus, massive display, and Galaxy S III inspired design, the Galaxy Note 2 and its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system are a force to be reckoned with.

This is a device that is perfect for those that want an extremely portable device that is part tablet and part phone. With its massive display and quick data speeds, this is a truly unique device and one of the best left on the table for 2012.


The Galaxy Note 2 is coming to AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular and Verizon and it's expected to retail for $299.99 on-contract.

  1. Looking forward to the LG’s Nexus smartphone. I’ve never had faith in their devices but hopefully the combination with Google will make them do better this time. Although the 8GB storage doesn’t sound good for a top-class device.

  2. I’m making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I’m my own boss. This is what I do, Fox70.comCHECK IT OUT

  3. What about the Asus padfone 2, it boasts really great features, display, processor and enhanceability, and it uses METAL, not plastic. It looks great, and will function great, its my next device compared to the mediocre phones displayed on top,.Yes, HTC is releasing an over the top 5 inch display phone, but in my opinion its a bit too big and it doesn’t even look good. I first wanted the LG optimus G, than the lg nexus came along and i thought i wanted that, but it just isn’t worth it to me as a long term phone. Motorola may have the best overall android setup but i’m on a Motorola boycott, so fuck’em, and finally the Samsung galaxy note 2, way too big plus i hate amoled screens, very dull looking. See you later, ASUS is calling me…
