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

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...

btw, does anyone know the price that this will coming our at? I think that if the LG Spectrum is coming out with a $199 price, every phone after that should follow including this one. Especially if it won't be coming with ICS.

I would be more happy if the galaxy nexus is called a nexus prime and it sports 1.5ghz snapdragon and a 8mp camera straight from gs2 . Never mind that has passed

The current CPU is better than Qualcomm's CPU and even if you could replace the camera with the one from the GSII, you wouldn't notice any difference. Megapixels don't mean anything for cameras that don't have a sensitive enough sensor.

In low lighting yes there is a difference

I know I'm a bit late on writing about this but honestly, this is not a phone that should come to Verizon. IT IS A PHONE THAT MUST TO COME TO VERIZON! The key word here is MUST! Damn it, this is the phone of phones. I don't give a s**t about ICS. I care about this phone coming to VZW. This phone is the phone of phones. This phone eats other phones. Please Please Please VZW, DO NOT SCREW THIS UP!

I agree. I have AT&T and im looking forward to use my upgrade eligibility to get the Note. If you read my post about this article, I knew that this would happen!! Theres NO way that Verizon will let a phone like this only be exclusive to AT&T. There have been alot of ads about this phone and from what im hearing sales have been good. this is a great phone for me because im a big man and I need a big phone. With the addition of LTE just added to my hometown of St. Louis, getting the phone makes it a whole lot better! One more thing.....i hope that you get it because we can compare the AT&T and Verizon versions of the phone. That would be nice to see

Jeradiah3, I agree 1000% brother. I am curious to know how well does AT&T work in your area? I really want the note for the same reasons you want the note. I was even thinking about jumping ship to get it. But where I work at in NYC, I work on an island and the reality is VZW and AT&T are the only 2 that work. VZW working slightly a bit better. Not much. Just a bit. I mean when you think about it, it took VZW almost a year and a half to get the iphone so anything can happen.

I have no complaints about the AT&T Service here in STL.................my only problem is the phone i currently have. I have the Inspire 4G and its becoming less and appealing to keep for the long haul. Ive had this phone for almost a year and im tired of it: the HTC Sense force closes and resets that happens when I dont ask for it, Facebook App continues to force close & does so often that I downloaded FriendCaster. Im 6'7" 235lbs so the screen is already to small to view videos from ESPN, NetFlix, or HuluPlus so im gonna wait till im eligible to get the Note You cant go wrong with either AT&T or Verizon WildManFan!! the problem with verizon is WHEN will they have it and are you willing to wait if the rumors are true

Jerediah3, I really, really appreciate the honesty and understanding brother. Your 6'7? If I had your height, I'd rule the world! Interesting you said that about the Inspire 4g. I have heard about some ongoing issues with this phone from a co-worker as well as a friend of mine. My LG Revolution has the same problem. It freezes, and force closes too. They are supposed to come up with an Android update but it hasn't come around to me yet. Where I work is the only reason why I have VZW, which essentially is the best service. AT&T is only edged out slightly by VZW. The 4G eats up battery like crazy. My contract with VZW is over in September. I have been with VZW for 10 years since the Bell Atlantic days so I am going to give them till years end. If I don't see them get the Note/Journal, then I'm leaving and going to AT&T. On a side note, did you hear that on change.org, there is a petition from Verizon customers who are demanding the Note? I signed it. It was supposed to have 5,000 signatures but now they are aiming for 10,000 which I think is a bit much. Nevertheless, let just pray on this one that VZW does get the Note/Journal.

Samsung isnt going to do what Apple did and only let AT&T sell the original iPhone, 3G and 3GS!! They have a Verizon version of the Note. Id give it no more than a year

Great advice man. I really appreciate it. Lets just hope that VZW will really step up and show that it is exactly what it says it is: #1.
