Galaxy Note II to launch in a week in Europe

Galaxy Note II to launch in a week in Europe
A fresh rumor goes that the Galaxy Note II, one of the hottest sequels of the year, will launch as soon as next week in Europe! According to SamMobile, by this time next week, users from two European countries will be able to enjoy the handset they were longing for - Germany and Italy. Other markets, like France, Netherlands and the U.K. will have to wait just a bit more, as they are said to be getting the Galaxy Note 2 in the very beginning of October. Here are the exact rumored release dates:

  • Germany: September 27
  • Italy: September 28
  • France: October 1-2
  • United Kingdom: October 1-2
  • Netherlands: October 1-2

As Note fans probably remember, the gigantic smartphone isn't expected to arrive at the U.S. until the end of October, which would be about a month later. Who do you think is to blame, the carriers or Samsung itself, for not coordinating its launches properly?

Hey it's better than the way they launched the Samsung Galaxy S II. The U.S. had to wait about half a year to get it. The Samsung Galaxy Note II will launch in the U.S. about 4 weeks later. It's really not that bad. Also it gives us some extra time to save some money for the phone. lol

Good to see note 2 just on time. Do you think an android fan would get the same reception when buying the first android device as did with iphone 5?
