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.
