Samsung GALAXY Note is rumored to be priced in between the Galaxy S and Galaxy S II
As US consumers continue to wonder if the gargantuan Samsung GALAXY Note will be headed stateside, others around the world loacted in areas where it’s expected to become available are more concerned about its potential pricing.

Already, Samsung is surely saturating the market with a ton of offerings, and seeing that the Samsung Galaxy S II is just launching in the US, it begs the question how it’ll fit in terms of pricing. According to mobile guru Eldar Murtazin, the Samsung GALAXY Note is going to be priced right in the middle between the original Samsung Galaxy S and the current flagship Samsung Galaxy S II.

Although it’s still speculation at this point, it’s believed that Samsung is going to be underpricing the handset in order to establish a totally new market for these leviathan smartphones. And of course, it goes to show that Samsung is serious with its AMOLED display development, and should get plenty of treatment of some sort.

Taking its size out of the equation, the Samsung GALAXY Note is still one dreamy smartphone packing some even better hardware under the hood. So if it’s going to be priced squarely in the middle of Samsung’s two most popular Galaxy S smartphones, it might seem to be alluring enough for some people to pick up.

I don't think most carriers will accept Xbox-Live Achievement Points.

This is my dream smartphone. It's perfect-- in everything. Some people are worried about its size but they shouldn't be. After all, they said the exact same things about the iPhone and the HTC HD2, but they were wrong. The way to determine whether a display size is "phone" or "tablet", draw it to scale on a sheet of paper, cut it out, and hold it in one hand. If you can reach all four corners with your thumb, then it's "phone." I think most people would appreciate a display this big and hi-res; the only reason why the Galaxy Note won't overtake other lesser-screened devices is some people keep saying "It's too big." It's not. Try it. You'll see:)

I will buy this as soon it arrives to the UK. Better deal than the HTC Flyer: small enough to carry and does phone calls

I'm stoked about this phone. I usually upgrade as soon as my upgrade date hits, but I will have to hold out for this one. I love it's size. It's just right to keep in my purse but I can more easily browse the web and read Kindle books. Something that is just too obnoxious to bother with on my dinky Torch.

I still think its even too big for me. Hopefully it drops on Tmobile and i get a chance to play with it. If the hercules is really coming with the snapdragon instead of the eyxnos, I may just take this phone instead. I can deal with the size in my pockets as I'm not a woman and i dont wear skin tight clothing. lol. Hardware is more important than size (as long as its all 4+inches that is..lol)

If that happens, everyone will buy this. The only thing that gets in the way in buying the SGS II is the hefty price tag.

Actually, Dell started this Phoneblet thing with the Streak5. Samsung just made it sleeker, managing to increase screen size a bit while decreasing phone's overall size.

Samsung is going overboard with the screen size, keeping below 5" would have been perfect in my opinion..
