    Samsung has given the official word now. The Galaxy Note II will launch on all 5 major U.S. carriers (including Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile & U.S. Cellular) by the middle of November. That means that some of the carriers might have it out earlier than that, but they will all at least have them for the Holidays. (Also, we have heard several reports that the bootloader will be locked on Verizon and maybe other carriers.) Here's the full press release,

    Also, this does seem to confirm that even the Verizon model will have the Exynos Quaddy! <Yes!>

    I really hope this doesn't surprise anyone... Seriously vzw doesn't care about how we feel it's "their" network. :dry:

    I'd still get it that's one sexy looking device and only slightly bigger than the SGS3 with a much larger screen. I absolutely love the s-pen idea as well.

    Still cannot figure out why VZ insists on locked bootloaders. The modding community is such a small percent of a percent of their user base that this stance is beyond unnecessary.

    I know it's huge (like the original Note), but has anyone used this primarily as their phone?

    I mean, how is it as far as putting it in a pocket, holding it in your hand, etc. I don't mind bigger phones (and was waiting for the Razr HD), but this seems cool as well.

    Thanks all...

    I know for a fact that they'll find a way to unlock the bootloader like on the S3. It should be pretty similar too if I'm not mistaken. THIS is my next phone. Get C10 on it and you're flying.

    I thought the Verizon GSIII bootloader was still locked but they bypass it by flashing custom recoveries and booting off the recovery. That's very different from unlocking the bootloader in my book.

    I have been sitting on 2 upgrades for this one. Can't wait. I want to go tell that VZW Rep that I was right & he was full of $h1t!

    It's kernel execution kexec.... though I did read they were actually flashing custom kernels not just bypassing it with kexec. who knows, either way we win.
