The Galaxy Note Edge to be available in Japan first, pre-orders up
The Galaxy Note Edge is definitely going to be the leprechaun of flagships in the following few months. Packing just as much punch under the hood, sans a smaller battery, as the Galaxy Note 4, the Edge's unique curved screen turns tech-heads around, and quite a lot of people are interested in at least trying it out, if not owning it.

Unfortunately for those, who like to own devices on the edge of technology, Sammy has announced the Note Edge to be a limited edition concept device, and that it plans to only sell small numbers in undisclosed regions.

Well, it seems like the first market to get a batch of the unique phablet is Japan (surprisingly – not South Korea, where Samsung's based). In an official press release, Sammy has announced that the Edge will be available through carriers KDDI and NTT DoCoMo and that pre-orders are up, with the actual devices about to hit store shelves some time before October ends.

When the Note Edge will hit western markets remains a matter to speculate on. Some analysts have predicted that Samsung will only ship 1 million units of the curved phone until the end of this year, which has led to rumors that it may not even make it to the US until some time in 2015. Of course, nothing is set in stone.

Exactly why I just went ahead and ordered the Note 4 im not going to play the waiting game. That plus the 200 dollars instant rebate from Best Buy sealed it for me. Ill wait and see with The Edge.
