Posters featuring the AT&T branded Samsung GALAXY Note appear at CES
With the Las Vegas Convention Center being transformed for next week's CES, posters have already been put up for display including some of the Samsung GALAXY Note. If you look at the top of the device, you will see the AT&T logo giving us another confirmation of where the device will be launched-at least originally-in the states.
You might notice the lack of a 4G icon on the unit, which could indicate that the picture of the GALAXY Note used on the display was photoshopped. But that doesn't take away from the fact that these are legitimate Samsung posters. So yes, the Samsung GALAXY Note is coming to AT&T. What about a version for Sprint? So far that is just conjecture.

Yer, what he said... I still think a 6 inch slab of screen will be my personal sweet spot. F@#! yer I want one.

I'm getting this... only if it has LTE 4G

While LTE would be a plus, I don't think this device would necessarily need to have it. AT&T's LTE network is not going to be up to par with Verizon's until another year or two (their failed acquisition of T-Mobile put them behind on this). Also, even with LTE, you would probably experience the same speeds as HSPA+ due to network volume as well as the distance you are from the LTE tower and what not.
If the choice was Exynos or LTE, I would pick Exynos. Besides, the majority of the time that you are using your phone's internet will be within range of a wi-fi network. I mean you only get 2 GB a month.

The LTE in my area (Houston) is very good... I don't really care about the exynos chip..I have the sgskyrocket.. it fast enough with the other chip.. IMO

same here. I'm a Houstonian and the LTE is great in our area. Plus I go to college in San Antonio which is also LTE enabled.

I could care less if it had LTE in it. You win or lose either way. You junk the Exynos processor for LTE and settle on a Qualcomm, or keep the Exynos (a better processor in my opinion) and throw out LTE. In my market, Northern Virginia, we probably wont have LTE for a while, so Id prefer keeping the Exynos with an HSPA+ capability.

Yea even if you are in a LTE area its going to vary on speeds. However the processoring power is another story.

I have a question. I have considered getting a phone with an S3 but I've heard bad things about that processor. Is it's performance so poor because it only uses one core at a time, or its the OEM that doesn't give its device the best optimization between hardware and software, or is it something all together different? I want to know.

one core does not mean bad performance.. oses like wp7 use one core and perform very well

I agree with Dr Phil and Nightmare Geese. Whenever (and given their trackrecord that could be quite a while) AT&T's LTE system gets built out it may very well be better than Verizons, but that may be awhile. Until then HSPA is more than good enough. Ive got a Verizon Galaxy Tab 10.1 and a AT&T Iconia Tab 501 and theres not much measurable diference. Right now too much depends on signal strength and congestion
