Posters featuring the AT&T branded Samsung GALAXY Note appear at CES

0. phoneArena posted on 08 Jan 2012, 15:52

As if we needed another sign that the 5.3 inch Samsung GALAXY Note is coming to AT&T, a series of posters appear in the Las Vegas Convention Center showing off the AT&T logo on the "phablet"; the lack of a 4G icon indicates the pix was photoshopped...

While LTE would be a plus, I don't think this device would necessarily need to have it. AT&T's LTE network is not going to be up to par with Verizon's until another year or two (their failed acquisition of T-Mobile put them behind on this). Also, even with LTE, you would probably experience the same speeds as HSPA+ due to network volume as well as the distance you are from the LTE tower and what not.

If the choice was Exynos or LTE, I would pick Exynos. Besides, the majority of the time that you are using your phone's internet will be within range of a wi-fi network. I mean you only get 2 GB a month.

The LTE in my area (Houston) is very good... I don't really care about the exynos chip..I have the sgskyrocket.. it fast enough with the other chip.. IMO

same here. I'm a Houstonian and the LTE is great in our area. Plus I go to college in San Antonio which is also LTE enabled.

I could care less if it had LTE in it. You win or lose either way. You junk the Exynos processor for LTE and settle on a Qualcomm, or keep the Exynos (a better processor in my opinion) and throw out LTE. In my market, Northern Virginia, we probably wont have LTE for a while, so Id prefer keeping the Exynos with an HSPA+ capability.

Yea even if you are in a LTE area its going to vary on speeds. However the processoring power is another story.

I have a question. I have considered getting a phone with an S3 but I've heard bad things about that processor. Is it's performance so poor because it only uses one core at a time, or its the OEM that doesn't give its device the best optimization between hardware and software, or is it something all together different? I want to know.

one core does not mean bad performance.. oses like wp7 use one core and perform very well

I agree with Dr Phil and Nightmare Geese. Whenever (and given their trackrecord that could be quite a while) AT&T's LTE system gets built out it may very well be better than Verizons, but that may be awhile. Until then HSPA is more than good enough. Ive got a Verizon Galaxy Tab 10.1 and a AT&T Iconia Tab 501 and theres not much measurable diference. Right now too much depends on signal strength and congestion
