Samsung unveils Galaxy Note II Developer Edition for Verizon
Samsung now has on display on its website a 16GB Galaxy Note II Developer Edition. For those that are wondering, yes, this device does have all the Verizon branding that has earned scorn from many.
It is not unusual for manufacturers offer “developer editions” of Android devices which have easily unlockable bootloaders. However, those devices are usually available at about the time as they are released through their relative carriers. With the root method available, this device may not seem relevant, especially since you can get a subsidized device from the carrier.
You cannot purchase this developer device quite yet, but if you are the type of person that does not want to deal with third-party hacks, and you do not worry about paying full price for gear, this Galaxy Note II will be right up your alley.

In my opinion, I think Verizon is horrible and I am not talking about their reception. They just sap the joy out of buying phones, but it do not matter to me I am on AT&T and before you say well they get poor reception........well too bad it do not apply to me I get full connection and I live in Brooklyn, NY.......plus AT&T have a better phone selection
