Samsung Galaxy Note is coming to Verizon as the Galaxy Journal?

Well folks, it seems that we’ll be seeing that same mentality because the rumors point to the possibility of Big Red getting its own version of the ridiculously large smartphone in the Samsung GALAXY Note – yeah, the same one coming to AT&T officially. According to the rumors spewing around, Big Red is allegedly in the pipeline to carry a version that’s going to be dubbed as the Galaxy Journal. Frankly, it’s a fitting name when you take into account the kind of functionality you get with the S Pen.
Currently, it’s not certain if Big Red will indeed be getting it, but you really can’t count them out when they’re consistently getting some quality devices all the time. Moreover, it’s rather difficult to predict at this time whether Sprint will be getting in with this one as well – though, anything’s possibly when you think about the kind of aggressive approach Samsung has taken of late.
With 4G LTE support by the big three carriers in the country, it wouldn’t surprise us if Samsung simply decided to go forward and bring the device to Verizon and Sprint – especially when AT&T’s version is enabled for 4G LTE connectivity. As much as we’d love to get all giddy about this, we have to turn it down a notch and take it with a grain of salt at this point.
- Display 5.3" 800 x 1280 pixels

well i have been using s2 for a long 6 months and i dropped it for gnote European version and i feel they are very different and it is because the gnote feels much stable and the colors are not bright they are good and the over all feel has been great no heating problems what so ever and battery life is great over all and i feel its a great upgrade over s2 and mines on 2.3.6 gingerbread out of the box.

Meh. Galaxy note is A great phone, not My favorite though. I LOVE the Galaxy S II so much! I wish they'd just bring a 4.3" - 4.6" model to Verizon :/

I'm going to keep my nexus and buy a "Journel" as a tablet... lol jk Sounds like a good move on Verizons part though. Now if they will end that juvenile DROID line up.

Where's the line between phone and tablet? It's so blurred now.

I feel like this size (5.3) is the line. I mean really, anything bigger in size won't be fitting in regular pockets. This should be the line. And to be honest with me, that's fine. All I want is for screen to have an enormous amount of PPI. As long as that keeps getting higher, everything will be alright.

Does a specific line between phone and tablet need to exist? If the line does get drawn at some point. I think we need to see some edge to edge designed screens utilized to see where the road forks between the pair for good.

I like the fact that I can save the money and extra connection fees needed to have a good tablet on 3g or lte with what seems to be a pretty functional alternative. Can't wait to see this in stores so I can make a final decision.
