AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note arrives at the FCC with LTE love intact
We all know that AT&T is bound to get the Samsung Galaxy Note with LTE support in tow, but we’re still in the dark in regards to an actual release date for the massive sized smartphone. Although we’ve already seen the Samsung Galaxy Note over at the FCC back last month, it didn’t carry the love for the carrier’s 4G LTE network – though, it was specified to run on its 2G and 3G frequencies.

Well folks, we’re seeing the handset making an appearance yet again over at the big house, but this time around, we see it packing support for 21Mbps UMTS/HSPA+, GSM 850/1900, and most importantly, LTE on the 700MHz band 17 and the 1700MHz AWS band. Knowing those specifics, this is clearly the device that AT&T has been touting since it officially made its debut during CES.

Now that it has graduated and received its certification, it’s simply one step closer to becoming a reality – so we can expect this baby to hopefully launch sometime soon. Beyond that, the last piece to the puzzle is none other than pricing, which we hope to follow in similar fashion to other AT&T 4G LTE smartphones of late.

This is the phone/tablet im waiting come on AT&T release it soon my pockets are burning for this bad boy and wait till ICS hits it wow is all i can say.This will be my final and last phone (hopefully).This is the phablet of my dreams i never thought anyone could make a perfect phone i was wrong.Samsung is KING OF PHONES i was htc for a while but they have terrible battery life I had the skyrocket and loved it only reason i took it back was to try the Galaxy Nexus which i was not impressed with at all the camera is terrible and the speaker is too weak so i returned it.I hope if AT&T does get the galaxy nexus they improve the camera and speaker on it if not its a waste of money imo.I just hope the release this baby in white when it does come out instead of waiting a month after everyone have bought the black one to release it.

How about BLAH, we don't care about LTE until AT&T stops gouging us on data plans and stops tiering and throttling us to death?? How about we are not interested in high speed wallet robbers ?

yes they are. I just switched to verizon because they were throttling my wife and I at a combined 6 gigs. I called to complain and they said if i wanted faster speeds th at i should buy a tiered plan. So we switched that same day.

DellStreak at 5" is (was) the KING as far as big screen phones. I still love mine, but the thought of a bit more screen area and 4G is all it would take for me to make the big switch.

Here's the only downside to both phones:

I had a Nokia N95 which had Bose Speakers. The sound quality was amazing, of course. Spoiled me rotten. The Dell Streak 5 speakers are crap already, so imagine hearing Dell's speakers AFTER owning an N95...

Well, in most reviews I've seen of the Note, the speakers are rated as "below average"...

Why in the fugg would anyone short change a superior product in the area of speakers???????????

What mindgroup makes that decision?

Either way -- still drooling for the Note. Crap speakers or otherwise.
