Big News: Report says 5.5 inch Samsung GALAXY Note II coming to Verizon

Verizon customers did not have a shot at the Samsung GALAXY Note and when the sequel was announced, it wasn't clear if Big Red would be getting the son of phablet; a leaked screenshot shows the SCH-i605 which is said to be Verizon's version of the Samsung GALAXY Note II...

Yeah, but which one's the stove? And, does the microwave come with the integrated toaster?

OH MY GOD!!!! FINALLY! Finally Verizon pulls their heads out of their asses and has some truly amazing phones come out this year, Motorola screwed up their smartphone line up after the OG DROID but is making a good come back with the Razor HD MAXX and Samsung is having a truly phoenominal year with the GS3 and now the note coming to Verizon is awesome! I was so pissed when Verizon felt they were too good for the Note so now that they are basically admitting defeat in agreeing to carry the Note 2 truly makes my day! I was going to get the GS3 but now I will wait patiently for the Note 2! :)

you guys have just got to realize that Verizon burst shoots their major releases into the Holiday season while everybody else spreads them throughout the year.

The Droid X was good. Didn't hear good things about the Droid 2 though. They screwed up for half a year with the X2 and Droid 3.

Since the Razr/Maxx they've been doing quite well, quality wise. Wish they released a strong lineup on the other carriers, but that probably won't happen until Verizon drops the voodoo curse they have on them.

as an owner of most of those phones I'll tell you the Droid 2 was a'ight but the Droid 3...I LOVED my Droid 3, fantastic phone it was for me. even now owning a Razr I still miss it. the only phone you mentioned that I think was bad is the X2. totally trash move from Motorola but I kind of get it. they wanted to get something out there to compete quick since they were behind on their work with LTE implementation at the time so they put out Verizon's first dual-core phone.

You'll probably get a lot of "yeses" on that one, as well as the other way around.

What do you like about your iPhone? What don't you like?

Yes, you most likely will like Android better. Unless you already have a preconceived idea that you won't. Give it a fair try, use it for about a week, you'll see how much more it can do and with a lot more fun in the process. If you don't like it, just return it, it's easy. You'll like it though. Get a good brand though, not something cheap and unknown.

"By end of the year" means that it could come out any time between now and Dec 31. As of right now, the Galay Note 2 is a bit a head of the time with its specs, but if it doesn't come out until end of the year it might be behind a version of Android. It doesn't really matter to me when it comes out though because I'm considering it as my next device.

Resilience would grab me even more. Adding a case to this already oversized load just so it can survive drops? Bah. Let me know when Moto makes the thing.

The first question about the Samsung Galaxy Note II : Who carries it?

ANS: Just about everyone. At least 5 US carriers, so far.

The next big question now remains:

Which of the carriers which will have the Note 2 will cripple it the LEAST? And BLOATWare is a form of crippling.

But you can disable the bloatware since ICS.

Samsung is a joke. How hard is it to publish carries and release dates? I am no fan of Apple but at least they treat their customers with a little respect. Apple: announce new phone, announce pre-order, announce release date. All done within a day of announcement. I am not quite sure what Samsung is trying to do with this mystery announcement. Maybe the Note 2 is far from ready and they should not have announced it so early???
