u sir, are crazy!

I'm waiting on the Nexus - but it might be a fast hand-me-down when the Note hits US soil - Has there been any indication as to when it might be released in the US and which carriers?

Based on the antennas on-board it looks to be an AT&T phone. Too bad they'll bloat the phone up with crapware and latency.

If this ever comes to Sprint, I'll upgrade for sure.

Yep. I will be passing on the Nexus just to get this one.

BigBear says:

Can somebody explain to me why US carriers haven't posted official release dates on either this phone or the Galaxy Nexus/Nexus Prime? Why does it seem the rest of the phone companies in the world get their act together and not US carriers?

Is it because there are 4 main US carriers vying for phones exclusively for or branded on their system with their add-ons. Does it have something to do with phone manufacturers themselves? Any one have insight?

Who cares about the phone. I want the light up usb cable.

ChillFactorz says:

LoL! You had me on Amazon trying to find one, couldn't find one!

jflexe99 says:

Still not 100% that this phone is coming to the US main providers. Just the Galaxy Tab. If it does, AT&T I believe would surely get it, seeing how the radios work with theirs anyway.

I too want to hold out and see, but for how long? Hell...could come out in December, could in March...Seems like all the kickass phones we have to wait for months after Europe gets them.

HTC Vivid is pretty tempting....As well as the GS2 Skyrocket

ChillFactorz says:

We already know that the European versions of Samsung devices are physically different, thus creating a delay in manufacturing and releasing. Add to this our carrier's input and customization, this makes for a significant delay in product delay. The Nexus device might be an exception due the same physical design. I am also interested in the G-Note mTab* too. I'm just thinking it will be a while, for a US release, early 2012. Just a hunch

*(Mini Tablet, with the lowercase letter followed by capital T-a-b. A slap in Apple's face, just try to sue.)

ronhoney says:

It totally perturbs me that my European brethren are getting this before the USA.....BUT, hopefully this will drive down the price IF/WHEN released in the USA.

GNE!!! (Galaxy Note Envy)

Kisziszi says:

... and the network, the whole mobile system is far beyond what you have here ...

Synycalwon says:

Holy phablets Batman, is that a phone up to your ear or a slablet? ;)

yungtris says:

n25philly says:

Seriously? Slovenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Serbia and we don't even know for sure if this will be released in the US yet. WTF can't anyone on the US side get their act together. I want this phone so bad, but I keep going with a barely working Galaxy S phone because they just aren't happy unless they play these BS games. Why do some companies hate money?

Kisziszi says:


There is No Pannon(not Panon) in Hungary, the name was changed many years ago to Telenor ...

Sh3ngLong says:

I hope it doesn't take ~9 months to reach the US like they did with the SII's.

hfm says:

I'm still waiting for the galaxy nexus. I think that's about as large a device as I can comfortably fit in my front pocket. The note just looks like it would be too large to do that with comfortably in all my pants.

"Lithuania (Nov. 14) - Omnitel, LMT, EMT". Correction - LMT and EMT not Lithuania, but Latvia and Estonia.
