FCC welcomes Sprint variant of the Samsung GALAXY Note II and more
Over the weekend, we told you that the FCC had received a visit from the Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile versions of the Samsung GALAXY Note II. Not to be outdone, the Sprint variant of the phone caught up with the others and has also enjoyed a plate of Oreos and a glass of milk with the Feds. The SPH-L900, as the phablet is known as in certain high class circles, should be officially introduced to a screaming mob sedate contingent of the media on October 24th.

Accompanying the SPH-L900 to the FCC's office was a pair of Samsung tablets. The SPH-P500 and SCH-i915 would appear to be 4G LTE versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) for Sprint and Verizon respectively. Interestingly, someone ran the Verizon version of the tablet on GLBenchmark and listed it as having the popular Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 under the hood. Earlier versions of the tablet had the TI OMAP 4430 running the show.

U.I love PhoneArena's optomiSm for this device, 'sedate contingent' indeed!? If this were about a mApless, purple picture-taking, light-leaking, scuffed and bruiSed out-of-the-box iDud PhoneArena would be giDDy with elAted iJoy, incApAble of containing their diarrhetic release.

Thank you!! My sentiments exactly!! I once proposed that they changed the web address to iphonearena and I get a warning for stating validity in the biased reviews and one sided reports. They called it troling... :-/

Don't feel bad, I've been called an iTroll many times by iPhoneArena.

Yes! I can't tell you how many times I can't see what I'm selecting on the right side of the screen because my hand is covering up the screen. How hard would it be to make a lefthanded OS?

I would rather have a Tab 2 with a Snapdragon than a TI OMAP. In my opinion, OMAP processors are just as bad if no worse than Tegra processors.

OMAP are great single core processors but right now an S4 Pro is the new hotness!

Sprint & Samsung, PLEASE take my $$$. Countdown to Nov 15 (hopefully the maximum wait time): 43 days.
