The Samsung Galaxy Note has passed through the FCC with AT&T bands

The Samsung Galaxy Note is somewhat of a hybrid device. It is a cross between a smartphone and a tablet which is similar to what Dell tried to accomplish with the original Streak. Not only does the Galaxy Note pack a whopping 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display (with an equally impressive 1280x800 resolution), it is powered by a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and 1GB of RAM.
Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the operating system of choice with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface riding on top of it. Samsung included two cameras on this monster-sized smartphone; an 8 megapixel camera on the back that is capable of recording video in 1080p HD and a front-facing 2 megapixel shooter. The Galaxy Note is very similar to the Samsung Galaxy SII just on a larger scale.
Not only does the Galaxy Note sport support for AT&T’s 3G bands, it should also be able to access “4G” speeds thanks to HSPA+. Now that it has passed through the FCC, it should only be a matter of time until this supersized device hits the states. Is anybody considering picking up the Samsung Galaxy Note once it becomes available?
- Display 5.3" 800 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 4, Dual-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 2500 mAh(13.50h 3G talk time)

That explains why their version of the SGSII has the 4.3" screen. It better differentiates it from the Note.

Well like it or not at&t usually always gets the best phones even tho there network ain't the greatest. Well actually it ain't that bad as many people make it to be. If u live in LA like me u are gonna wish u had at&t or Verizon for indor reception inside elevators, underground parking lots and highrise building. Because t-mobile and sprint usually crap out in all those places I'm not even gonna get into that cuz its pointless arguing. At&t and Verizon is the only way to go if ur in the LA area. Lol I remember a while back I decided to give t-mobile a try I got a g2x never making the same mistake twice! I didn't even get signal inside LA fitness gym lol how lame I saw people on metro pcs that went to the gym that wud be chatting away on there crappy metro pcs phones while I had no service on t-mobile. Thank god I have at&t now a Samsung infuse I now have full reception inside the Gym..

im Glad you finally got a phone that fits your needs! its kinda hard to imagine tmo not having good reception, i live here in phoenix and everywhere i travel in the metro area and inside buildings i always have perfect reception... actually i think all carriers here have good service including cricket (we dont have metro pcs) .. why would people be chatting away in the gym anyways shouldnt they be working out or doing an activity other than sitting there talking? jus wondering

Dude T-mobile sucks in phoneix! How can you say that?! Two of my friends have tmobile and they always have little to no respetion in buildings that acctually have concret walls. I on the other hand have verizon and have no problems in the same buildings. Plus if you try to go a little up north past carefree you reception goes bye bye again and a whole bunch of other places as well lol

Well I agree with LA gurl I also live in LA and been to 3 different La fitness gym's and in all of them I had no freaking service on my sensation 4G from t-mobile kinda ridiculous if u ask me I mean even freaking metro pcs works like she said. And well to do things like listen online radio stations while running on a thread mill u need to have reception and that was something I obviously couldn't do on my sensation cuz I had no service ..that's da answer to ur question what would people do with a phone while doing a workout.also to call I'm not one of those persons that talks on the phone at the gym but it would still be nice if T-Mobile could at least provide decent reception inside gyms in case for emergencies I mean if metro pcs, at&t and Verizon all work fine why can't t-mobile? O also there is no wifi in most LA gyms so us T-Mobile customers are screwed. With att and Verizon u don't need wifi cuz they actually work!

i still dont understand why you would want a phone so big. people might as well just buy a tablet and use that to call people.

Agreed. This thing is to big(thats what she said). I wear normal jeans and slacks. That being said what type of pants are you guys wearing that has pockets that can fit this monster(thats what she said)?

I wear slim fit jeans, and both the Infuse and SGSIIE4GT fit in my pockets (front and back) with plenty of room. Conversely, my OG EVO barely fits in my front pocket. It's more the thickness of the phone that causes problems for pocket fitment. The note is slightly thinner than the E4GT, and only a half-inch wider so most guys really shouldn't have any problem fitting it in their pockets.

I wear cargo pants and cargo shorts 99% of the time. I have NO problem with the size. People manage to carry their 10.2" tablets (plus a phone) around everywhere so this should be a treat. I can't figure out why people would carry around a tablet AND a phone. This solves my need for both.

Yes, I'd like a tablet that makes calls yet still fits in my pocket. It almost makes having both voice and data worth it (although, I'm still not going to pay $100 for both). But I won't be getting one if it's GSM. Still considering HTC flyer on UScellular instead, but I do fancy the note.
