Duck and cover -- Samsung announced this morning that its latest monster handset, the Galaxy Mega, will be arriving on our shores this month. The 6.3-inch monolith will be coming to AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular. Beyond that, availability information is one thing about this phone that's still on the small side -- as the company explains in a press release this morning (which you can find in all of its PRy glory below), "each carrier will announce their specific availability, colors and timing." We do know that it'll have Android 4.2.2 and a 1.7GHz dual core processor. Expect more info on the only smartphone visible from space to follow soon from each of the aforementioned carriers.

Update: As expected, the carrier announcements have begun trickling in. You can find Sprint's below. It adds...a little information to what we already knew, namely the fact that the Now Network will be offering up unlimited data with the handset.

My next phone will likely be the LG Optimus G Pro; 1.7ghz Snapdragon 600, 2 gigs RAM, storage up to 64 gig via microSD and 5.5" 1920 x 1080 (400 ppi). Currently a $99 upgrade from AT&T Next, but the Mega arrives Friday at $150 and may put downward pressure on the price of other phablets.

The LG OGP fits into my shirt pockets at 5.5" though I use a belt holster, and the new LG 5.5" hires 2560 x 1440 screen is the same size (coming new phablet?)

The 6.3" Samsung Galaxy Mega might be another thing entirely. Not interested in it though, it being a slower dual core and the image quality less sharp than the OGP.
