Is the Samsung Galaxy NOTE coming to Sprint? I love this phone and I would like to get it ASAP. I currently have an EVO 4G and my contract has been available for a new upgrade since Sep of 2011. The EVO is a great phone and was truly a ground breaking device when it was released. I came to Sprint and replaced my ATT iPhone just to get the EVO. It has served me well and I have been so happy with it. But I am now ready for something distinctly new and with better capabilities than my EVO. IMHO the iPhone is just on par with my EVO and the Nexus Prime is nice since it has ics, but again not ground breaking. The NOTE on the other hand is a ground breaking device and worth getting at any "reasonable" price. It introduces a new device market -- ie the phone/tablet hybrid. I am definitely in the demographic. With this device, I would no longer required carrying both my EVO and my Samsung Tab around at the same time. I can leave my Tab for home use and use the NOTE for everthing on the road. The Note opens us up to a new world. Sprint, help me to take part in it.
Yes, I know. I could always go back to ATT and get the NOTE, but frankly, I like how Sprint has listened to customer requests, maintained unlimited data plans and significantly improved customer service over past years. So you will have to forgive me for wanting to remain loyal to Sprint even though my "precious" is soon being offered at ATT. I am willing to wait a couple of monthes in hopes that Sprint will get the Galaxy NOTE also. <fingers crossed>
Sprint -- I want my NOTE !!! pretty please with Ice Cream Sandwich on top
I dont think this is going to happen. If you want it bad enough you might find yourself going back to AT&T and getting one on their LTE network.
Ever since I have saw this phone I wondered this question. How big will phones get until they are no longer a phone and are considered a tablet? Its like old cell phones were big. Then the trend was the smaller the better. Now the trend seems to be going to tablet sized.
Either way it is a sweet phone. I am also thinking of going to AT&T for that phone on their LTE network.
Well... Sprint is introducing its LTE network mid-2012, so if they did the the NOTE they could put it out on that network. In fact, at CES, Sprint spoke about how they are driving everthing to LTE going forward. See the article from this morning here --> http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2398768,00.asp So I am just hoping that Sprint plans to come out with the NOTE on the LTE network in mid-2012 and they are just waiting until 2Q12 to make the announcement. If we dont hear a NOTE on Sprint announcement by April then the NOTE will probably never come to Sprint. So I am holding out until April before considering going to ATT to get my "precious."
I guess this should also depend on your location. Sprint is starting the LTE roll out in mid 2012. I do not believe its suppose to be done until the end of 2013. I have worked alot of construction and contract jobs and have never seen any of them finish on schedule either.
Depending on your area you might get LTE by mid to end 2012. But then you might not also get it until 2013 to maybe even 2014. Even if Sprint gets the Galaxy Note (Which I still doubt it), I will only get it if it is an LTE phone and I have LTE in my area. I am not falling for this "it is coming" BS. It must be here, active, reliable.
So I guess we'll see in a couple months. I might also switch to AT&T and have that phone for 2 years and then switch back to Sprint. I would assume in 2 years they will have the network up to par with the rest of the carriers. I dont care about Sprints "unlimited data". I prefere quality over quantity anyday.
Would you switch to ATT to get the Galaxy Note?
Hmmm tough question.
Life will be easier if Sprint gets the Note. Ive been waiting for this. I wont by a tablet b/c you cant make calls. Makes no sense to have two similar items which perform basically the same functions. The Evo does everything a tablet does just smaller. The note is a step in the tablet/phone merge. They will.
So Sprint listen to the world, the community, your users - Galaxy Note. Secure the deal we know you can. : )
Well it looks like we are going to see it in this first half
I just have to sell my Photon and get it out of contract.
The more I read about the Note, the more I like it. Not to happy about Touch Wiz, but the Mobile Tech review does show that its not as bad. Still, I haven't had a Samsung in ages. Went from Samsung to HTC to Motorola. And this might be the one to get me back. Although I do love my Photon, but their locked bootloader issue is a pain. So I just might get this on my second line until the update to the Photon.
According to a report, Sprint could announce getting the Galaxy Journal at MWC in a few weeks (Earliest). The downside if not at MWC it may be in May of 2012 at CTIA. Making it late Summer season before we see the Samsung Journal on Sprint's shelves. Read more here.
