This week is jam packed with tech launches, including Samsung's much-anticipated Galaxy Note 2 phablet. International markets have already received the Galaxy Note 2, but Samsung has waited until tomorrow to bring the handset to the United States. Carriers are slowly disclosing release dates, with AT&T finally saying that the Galaxy Note 2 will be available November 9 for $299.99
The carrier is one of the last ones to release official pricing and a release date. The only one that has't given this information is Verizon.
Website Phandroid reports that T-Mobile is planning on carrying the Galaxy Note 2 on October 24, for $299.99 as well. This would make T-Mobile the first carrier to begin offering the Galaxy Note 2.
Sprint will be the next, releasing the phone on October 25 for $299.99.
U.S. Cellular started taking pre-orders earlier this month, stating that the device will ship for the same price eat the end of October.
The silence on Verizon's part may hurt the company, with many Galaxy Note 2 fans asking for Verizon to release some information and assurance. The Big Red should have a release date and price tomorrow, after Samsung holds its October 24 launch event in New York City.
The Galaxy Note 2 sits somewhere between a regular smartphone and small tablet with its massive 5.55-inch HD Super AMOLED display. The Galaxy Note 2 comes with a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 4G LTE, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and the S Pen stylus right out of the box, making this one of the most powerful handsets the United States will see for a while.
