The phablet with a 5.3 inch screen is available starting today from AT&T and Best Buy for $299.99 with a signed 2-year contract; if you plan on buying it from a store, call ahead because some AT&T locations won't have their inventory until Monday...

Just got mine today upgrading from an old iphone 3G! So far, I love it. The thing is huge but fits in my front jeans pocket no problem. I think ATT dropped the ball on creating more buzz and launching the Note. Same with Evo-ninja, i was at an ATT store and the rep told me it's going to be available in 1-2 weeks! Double checking with another associate who did confirm it'll be in today. So today around noon, i went to a different store that was bigger, turns out I was the first one to get it!

went to the store to fool around with it. I must say the device is big and its not for everyone. But for a device so big its still quite thin and quite light. The super AMOLED display looks great on 5.3" of real estate. I am still on the fence on this device though. Because of the sheer size. But also the slew of other devices coming out. I think im just gonna sit and wait a while.

Picked mine up yesterday. Love this thing. The big screen is awesome. Also got a flip cover for it. Switched from an HTC EVO 4G on Sprint.

I saw it at a Best Buy in St. Louis and I must say that if ur a big man like me (6'7" 235lbs), this is the perfect phone for you. Im able to pick it up with one hand and work with it like it was nothing!! My only concern is the price. it worth more than the Kindle Fire and im not sure if I want to renew my AT&T contract paying $300 fpr a phone. My birthday is coming up so I could get it as a present!! anything can happen

Im still getting the phone tho!!!!!!! lol

Picked up my pre-ordered Gal. Note yesterday at BB. $50 discount and free case. Not sure it was worth the $50 for the 2 hour and 30 min. wait.
Good: Display,features,speed,S pen. Bonus was switching carriers to one that works in our country home. We have been on Sat. Intranet for 2 years. But AT&T is the only carrier out of all of them that works at our house!
Bad: This might not be an issue but when I woke up this morning I only had 7% on my battery. I had not loaded Juice Defender because I thought that 2.3.6 had it built in. Will watch it a little closer. The free case from BB was handsome, perhaps for an Executive. I am retired so would rather have a case that protects rather then impresses. I am very concerned about leaving Sprint. They had given me 11 free phones in that last 30 months, and their people service has been the best I have found in 20 years in mobile phones. But we never had good signal. I just hope AT&T is half as good for personal service.
Accessories: stuck in 32GB Speed 10 card, picked up the Juice port adapter that gives you a way to plug in an extra USB, SD and micro SD and has a power port. Meaning that you can take your portable power cell, and extra movies on cards or sticks and watch movies on a flight to say Australia. Found a nice gel cover and pre-ordered the Skinomi screen covers, which will work with the S Pen.So for about $100 we got an 11,000mah power cell, the input adapter, skins, case and the 32gB card on Amazon.
NO REGRETS so far, and this guy is a little large but in my hand with 3 finger extended can't be seen when I hold it to my ear, which I seldom do with a cell phone.
The speaker phone is great, used in Internationally yesterday on speaker and just like being in the same room.
If you want to learn how to use this phone check out Lisa's You Tube from Mobilethecreview.com, she is a wiz and was the final point of pushing me to this phone. Cheers....
