Samsung Galaxy Note 2 specs

That's a big damn phablet. Not my cup of tea but I am glad Android gives users a choice.

And please tell me that is a super amoled + not just a super amoled 5.5" screen.

It's an HD samoled.... trust me, if it's anything like the gs3 screen (should be better), it won't make a difference.

"The display resolution is the same as very similar to the original Note, 1280 x 720 versus 1280 x 800 on the older model, and the technology employed is still Super AMOLED, though the Pentile subpixel arrangement has been tweaked a little. It's still not a perfect stripe of RGB pixels as you might get on LG's IPS displays or the laudable HTC One X, but it's somewhere closer to it than the standard Pentile. An improvement, in any case."

"..though the Pentile subpixel arrangement has been tweaked a little."

Not that it's a big deal, but I read the link and didn't see anywhere that says its non-Pentile. So how is a tweaked Pentile screen no longer pentile? or am I reading it wrong?

Real nice. Strange that its only HSPA+ 21.
I have an Evo V on the way. WiMax with a $40 plan works for me.
Would sure love a large screen for my 50+ eyes, though.

What are compelling upgrades from Note 1?

Aside from new software which one may be able to install on the original Note, I don't really see anything terribly compelling in terms of hardware. Yes, faster processor, more memory, etc. which are expected evolutionary increments. But nothing in the way of a radical new display. OTOH, if you need LTE, then this would be a no-brainer.

My thoughts exactly, LTE is the only new hook and I don't see this spreading to CDMA carriers anytime soon, of ever. It's like the At&t galaxy s2 (G Note) vs At&t galaxy s2 skyrocket (g note 2).

If this is like the big red S3 - it will be dual vs. quad core. I love love love my S3. Can hardly wait for my next new toy - this beast.

Unbelievable how Samsung has delivered. A PC on your phone, a phone on your PC.

Have it your way w/bluetooth earbud. BAZINGA !

No mention of palm rejection, pogo pins or inductive charging? I also wonder if the resolution decrease and size increase will bring forth more complaints about pentile since the ppi will be lower.

Who am I kidding -- I'll still buy it. :-)

Where are the supported bands? So much AWS speculation.. I just want to pickup a international one and use it on my T-Mo prepaid.

As an owner of the original Galaxy Note on At&T I hope AT&T doesn't disable the FM radio like they did on the original Galaxy Note. Also, if they have added a notification LED that would make it perfect.

AT&T somehow has it's name written all over this phone already and I hope it stays with AT&T. Once this is out in the US market, I'm pre-ordering like I did with my first GNote.
