Apple and Samsung have been at each other's throats - going at it through courtrooms and supply chain disruptions over allegations that Samsung is blatantly ripping off Apple products.
The tech battle should heat up even more as Apple is set to finally unveil the iPhone 5 at a press conference tomorrow, September 12. Samsung recently revealed their own Galaxy Note 2 smartphone that is set to go on sale after the iPhone 5, and will have the distinction of offering more carrier options.

While I originally speculated that the Galaxy Note 2 would only be available through AT&T in the beginning (with a later, subsequent T-Mobile launch), recent reports around the internet point that the Galaxy Note 2 should be available through the four major U.S. carriers AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
The iPhone 5, however, will only be hitting AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon, with T-Mobile customers losing out on the phone.
The iPhone 5 should be officially launched on September 21. Samsung has given no details on the pricing or release date for the Galaxy Note 2 in the United States except that stateside customers will see the handset by the end of 2012.
Keep in mind, that the two phones are not exactly direct head-to-head competitors.
The Galaxy Note 2 will come with a giant 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen, Android 4.1 Ice Cream Sandwich, and will heavily feature the S Pen stylus. Samsung is also touting the Galaxy Note 2's multitasking abilities and its creative, "digital notepad" aspect.
The iPhone 5, on the other hand, will feature a larger screen than previous iPhones, but at 4 inches, it will still be smaller than the Galaxy Note 2. It will also be thinner than previous iPhones will be running Apple's iOS 6.
Which one of these two devices has you more excited? The iPhone 5, or the Galaxy Note 2?
