Verizon customers start petition for Samsung GALAXY Note

Verizon customers start petition for Samsung GALAXY Note
Last month, before the Samsung GALAXY Note LTE appeared on the Super Bowl telecast and was launched via AT&T, speculation centered on a version on the phablet for Verizon. This model for Big Red was called the Samsung GALAXY Journal. But to the chagrin of Verizon customers, there has been no word since then about the phone with the 5.3 inch screen getting launched on Big Red. So some Verizon customers decided to take matters into their own hands and have started a petition drive.

Those behind the petition are aiming for 5,000 signatures to let Big Red know that its customers really, really want this phone. Currently, there is a long way to go with 350 names signed on to the petition. Need to hear the specs again? The Samsung GALAXY Note has a 5.3 inch Super AMOLED display with resolution of 800 x 1280. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8660. 1GB of RAM is aboard with an 8MP rear-facing camera capturing video in 1080p. The 2MP shooter up front takes self-portraits and allows you to video chat. 16GB (or 32GB) of native storage is available. Android 2.3 is installed although an update to Android 4.0 is coming soon. AT&T and Best Buy are asking $299.99 for the phone, with a signed two-year contract.

If you are a Verizon customer and want the guys in the suits at the carrier to hear your wish for the Samsung GALAXY Note loud and clear, you can fill out the petition on line by clicking on the link.

Size queens; rather hold my phone with two hands and still struggle (like a regular visit to the urinal). You have my sympathy on the bottle-necking. I managed to gorge 35GB on Verizon last month; last Gig' was just as fast as the first.

35gigs!? Your the reason carriers drop unlimited data. We should start a petition to throttle your account.

Verizon throttles the same as AT&T does. 35GB? What the heck for? I hardly use that much on my landline in a month

The nexus is admittedly a great phone but the note brings expandable storage, higher resolution (lower pixel density), and the S pen. I mostly use my phone for movies, games, and the web. I personally am leaving verizon for the Note.

hm i suppose.. the main reason i would not get a note is because it is pentile.. i know the nexus is too, and it really bugs me-- especially on screens as large as those

That's not even a fair comparison. The nexus isn't that great of a phone at all.

It's not like Verizon can get it anytime soon anyway. The Galaxy Note is exclusively for AT&T for at least a quarter.

I don't know if it's exclusive, I haven't heard them say it was. But, I do agree that even with this petition, you would be too late in getting the device. By the time it goes through all the hurdles it takes to get it to the market, the Galaxy Note 2 will be out. So, maybe this petition would be useful for the Note 2, but not the Note for right now.

Does anyone know if the Note has microSD functionality; I infer from the article that there is no microSD slot??

Most android phones have an SD slot. Just assume it has one. BTW this phone has 32gb SD slot

I realize this was not the original question but how about the Galaxy Nexus for at&t. (subsidized that is:-)

I still think Verizon might get it, but maybe higher specs. Near 1080 screen, better body.

I just went to have a look at the Note in person, and all I could think while holding it was. "Wow! This mother f*cker is HUGE!!!" For a bit, I wasn't sure I wanted it anymore. But after a few minutes it got a lot more comfortable. Now, I'm sure...I WANT IT ON VZW! Where's that petition?!?
