The Galaxy Note II is currently selling like hotcakes with over 5 million units sold so far which is a remarkable feat for a device of its caliber. While the device is available since more than a month now on a global level, the handset didn’t quite make an appearance on all the American carriers. But the country’s top carrier, Verizon will now see the tablet arrive on its shelves starting from tomorrow. Users who have pre-ordered the device already will receive an email confirmation about the shipment of their order as pre orders have already begun shipping to the customers. The expected arrival device of the device is slated for as early as tomorrow. If you’re a new customer however, you can place the order tomorrow for $299.99 on a two year contract or $699.99 if you cannot have yourself shackled with carrier obligations. It is being reported that some Verizon stores will only get 2 units per store, so you might want to hurry up if you plan on buying the device from a store tomorrow.
The phablet has arrived a little late to scene frankly, with AT&T’s version already available in the market. But given the kind of consumer share Verizon has, there would be quite a few out there who were probably waiting for the device’s release on their beloved network. The phablet is available for purchase in the same Marble White and Titanium Gray variants with only one storage option available at the moment (16GB).
The smartphone shares the same specs as its international twin, but with the added 4G LTE feature which is crucial in the American market. The device also packs a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display, a 1.6 GHz quad core Exynos 4412 Quad chipset, 2GB of RAM, 3,100 mAh battery, an 8MP rear camera along with a 1.9MP front facing shooter and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which until last month was the latest version of Android. The phone/tablet also comes with a microSD card slot which can handle cards of up to 64GB, so the internal storage shouldn’t bother the users much. Speaking about bothering users, well the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 comes with a weird Verizon logo on the home button, as you can see from the pictures. So if that is something you can live with, go ahead and place the order. I’m guessing Samsung didn’t permit Verizon to place its logo anywhere near the bezel area, hence settling with the home button. Are you one of those users eagerly waiting for the device’s arrival on the country’s largest network?
