Wait till you hear the latest rumor circling the interwebs right now.. I know it’s definitely got me excited! According to the Examiner, the highly controversial Samsung Galaxy Note is heading to both Sprint and Verizon after it makes it self at known with AT&T. Industry analyst, Paul Mueller, told the Examiner that the device will be available only any one of the big three carriers in 2012. Mueller claims ”It will possibly be called the Galaxy Journal. But it is certainly coming to both Sprint and Verizon during the first half of the year.”
Some of you may hate the thought of this device because of its massive 5.3-inch screen. To be honest, when it was first announced in 2011 I was a bit skeptical myself, but after seeing it in person at this years CES, I fell in love. There is something to be said about having that much screen so readily available (yes, it does fit comfortably in my pocket) instead of always relying on toting around a 7 0r 10-inch tablet. Don’t get me wrong, the Note will never replace the joy of using a tablet, but for those like myself who use the web and multimedia all day on their phones — this is a great portable compromise.
Hate it as much as you want, but unless you have personally held one in your hand and have tinkered with its usefulness, you should refrain from bashing it until you have. If this rumor holds any truth, and is indeed heading to Verizon, then, well… anybody want to buy a Galaxy Nexus?
What about you? Do you have any interest in Samsung’s 5.3-inch phablet?
