Verizon Customers Want the Galaxy Note, Petition Begins to Let Big Red Know



Prior to AT&T releasing the 4G LTE-capable Galaxy Note, a smartphone-tablet hybrid device with a large high resolution 5.3-inch display, on its network, there were rumors that Verizon Wireless may bring a Galaxy Note to its own network dubbed the Galaxy Journal. Since then, there hasn’t been word of a Note or Note variant for either Sprint or Verizon, but customers on Verizon who are eagerly awaiting the Note to arrive are beginning to petition Big Red to bring the Galaxy Note to its 4G LTE network.

Users interested in the Galaxy Note for Verizon could head on over here to view and sign the petition.

The aim of the petition is to gather 5,000 signatures, and even then it’s unclear if Verizon will even offer or support the Galaxy Note or Galaxy Journal on its network. Verizon and Samsung have been strong partners in the past, offering numerous models of Android smartphones, the Galaxy Nexus, and various Galaxy Tab tablets in recent years. The Note would be a nice addition to the carrier’s lineup, which so far has been very forward and progressive with the Android smartphones and tablets that it carries.

The Note is a polarizing device. At worst, it’s a huge smartphone that’s been deemed by some to be too big for comfortable use. At best, it’s an uber-portable tablet that comes with the bonus of having phone and voice call capabilities built-in. I’ve had users comment on the AT&T version of the Galaxy Note on the streets–some love the large, but still portable, display of the device–the high definition Super AMOLED display is a beauty to behold–while others have called it ‘unsexy to hold’ as a phone.

Whatever the case, rival AT&T is expressing a lot of confidence in the Galaxy Note. In my sit-down with representatives from AT&T, it appears that the carrier is promoting this as a mainstream smartphone rather than a niche offering, unlike with the 5-inch Dell Streak which seems to be ahead of its time when that device was released.

       No !
      It does fit perfectly in every normal pocket . And it’s the best mobile device now.
      The only “problem” is that people will not buy phones an tablets but only one device. That’s why are those BSs about Note

      You really shouldn’t carry it in your pocket anyway due to the radiation. It’s best in a holder away from the body. Even though it’s only a quarter inch differnce or so, that makes a huge difference for safety according to some studies. The note would be cool for surfing the web and that extra real estate space it gives over the smaller phones makes a big difference (imho). It would also be great for applications like Documents To Go where the extra space could be most helpful especially for excel programs.

    Fits perfectly in shirt and pants pockets. The only problem is that to operate it needs both hands. The rest are only goods news.

    Really a petition to get the phone? Verizon has gotten everything decent in the last year with the exception of the GS2.
