Availability Details Emerge For The Samsung Galaxy Note

The popular phone tablet dubbed “phablet” by some was recently launched over the weekend in Germany and Samsung has provided a few more details as to who’s getting the monster 5.3-inch device next.  Check out the list below and if your carrier is on it, go celebrate.  Because though some find the device to be in a confusing market and target a confusing demographic, I”ve seen nothing but positive feedback regarding the monstrous handset and all of its features.  And with the occasional “damn, that thing is big” most people are giving it a warm welcome.  Personally, if that device makes its way into the US on any of the four major carriers, I can’t be held responsible for how I will act :)  Expect the device to launch across the UK and Europe on a number of carriers between now and Nov 25th.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    Hi there!

    Just a quick note: In Hungary there used to be a Carrier Pannon, but it was changed to Telenor.

    Otherwise, it’s great news! :)
