    What do you guys think of Sammy's decision not to launch the Galaxy Note 5 in Europe?

    I THINK it's because they want to see the S6 Edge Plus make a strong appearance first. It will probably see a release later this year but I can only assume they want the Edge Plus to gain some traction before offering the "cheaper" Note 5.

    Great question though

    I'm baffled...I can't understand why Samsung would be doing this..CK is probably right..but ..it just seems like someone either has something up their sleeve or someone is drinking on the job...

    The way they handled the s5&s6e..idk...I'm kinda thinking someone is partaking too much..and they're putting soo many devices out..its like moto to of a few years back..

    That's a good theory. It could also be a supply side issue on some of the components. They are using their own 7420 chips, so by limiting the devices availability in some areas, it allows them to creatively manage that. Perhaps after a few months they will have rebuilt their supply of those chips and can sell the Note 5 in areas previously unavailable.
