Rumor: Galaxy Note to be sold by AT&T in US?

Samsung's Galaxy Note is a strange hybrid: it's either a small tablet or a really big smartphone depending on how you look at it. Now a new rumor claims that the Galaxy Note will finally be sold here in the US; SamMobile.com reports via unnamed sources that the Galaxy Note will be sold via AT&T sometime in the first half of 2012.

The rumor also claims that the US version of the Galaxy Note will have a feature that is currently not in the version that is on sale for European users; an NFC chip. You can check out Neowin's own review of the current version of the Galaxy Note, which was written up back in September.

As a reminder, the Galaxy Not has a 5.3" Super AMOLED HD display, support for either HSPA or LTE-based wireless networks, Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" on-board, an eight megapixel camera, 16 or 32 GB of storage, a 1.4 GHz processor and more. It's possible that any US version could have some other differences in hardware than the current version, so it should be interesting to see how the Galaxy Note is received here in the US whenever it is launched.

Maybe for you. It would make a nice phone actually. That si what headsets are for. Fits nice in a coat pocket.

Also, the measurement is diagonal. The HTC Titan is 4.7" in size. The Note isn't that much bigger.

no no AT&T... you got it all wrong.
your customers want the Galaxy NEXUS... not the Galaxy NOTE


THIS !!!! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I would like to see an App eco system take off to make full use of the Digital Pen. I can imagine an App in the medical professional for physicians to write out their scripts and shorthand on it.

this looks great but 5.3 inch's thats getting a bit crazy for a phone ..
I just got an HTC Evo View tablet; getting this phone may make having a tablet pointless (and even more portable). I can't wait to try it out at my local AT&T store!!

Ive been using this phone for about 2 weeks now, feels big.. but awesome at the same time..

Heres a little stopmotion video a friend of mine posted about it..
Its nice to see good creativity rather than the usual ones.. hope you guys like it..
