    Much to the chagrin of many Sprint and Verizon customers, the Samsung Galaxy Note appeared at CES 2012, but is coming to AT&T first. Luckily, the device will be coming to other carriers later on in the year, including Sprint and Verizon. Los Angeles Industry Analyst Paul Mueller indicated that the device will come to Sprint and Verizon but probably under a different name.

    Mueller said, "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."

    So can anyone see using this as a phone, or is it too big?

    Yes! I am there! :cool-b: I know people think it is too big but for me it is perfect. I carry around a phone, a tablet and rarely use my phone for calls as I text and email most of the time. This is good news for me as I did not want to move to AT&T. I am enjoying my Bionic though, fortunate not to have any problems with it.

    It's not too big for me. I don't do much talking, and of that most is on speaker phone. Very intriguing but don't think I'll dump the GNex for it :)

    Pretty awesome device. I wonder if they give the option for voice and data or just data.

    I like my nexus and could see myself picking one of these up. I really wish someone would pack the hardware of the nexus in a 3.8inch device. Cant help but think our kids are going to be laughing their arses off at us. Kind of the way we do at Zack Morris and Gordon Gecko with there brick phones. Can't help but wonder if these 4 to 6 inch phones are going to be the brick phones of the future.

    I'm just waiting for the "I was talking on my Note when I dropped it and the screen cracked" posts. Lol. The nexus is even a tad over sized for me and I don't have small hands.

    I guess this would be fitting for someone who spends very little time actually on the phone every week.

    I would love this phone. I talk maybe for 30 minutes a month on my current phone, everything else is done through email now. However, with quad core phones around the corner I don't know if I want to use my upgrade on this.

    Not really.

    Though, I wonder when in the year it'll get released, and will it have GB or ICS when it launches on Sprint/Verizon.

    It's way too big. In fact, Im beginning to think that my Thunderbolt is too big. I wish they'd make more 4 inch phones. That's the perfect size, IMO. ALMOST makes me think about getting a Droid 4.

    I also think that it is the best size - not perfect, but the best compromise of all the sizes. I like the size of my Inc2. The perfect size would be a 3 inch screen that automatically changes to a 7 inch when I press the tablet mode button. :D

    This makes me very very happy. I'm not a big talker on my phone as it is. Wonder when it will drop. My upgrade is in March and I'm hoping that the Galaxy S3 will come to Verizon, but if it doesn't, I think this phone will be for me easily.

    Somewhere on this amazing ball of creation!
    The bigger the better! :D I always thought 4.3" was too small! :biggrin: Choices... I'm really happy with my Nexus, the note still has buttons and most likely a locked bootloader! (I'm trying to reassure myself here!). ;) If it didn't have buttons it would be amazing.

    Why don't you buy a tablet then?

    Or, you could just buy a 60 inch flat screen TV and carry that around in your pocket if you want.

    Haha

    i thought the droid incredible was when i had the og droid. i upgraded to the gnex at first and while it is huge you get used to it. the other day i saw my friend's droid incredible and it seriously looked like a toy compared to the gnex...thats how small it was.

    i just took out my og droid from storage as i was writing this post and this thing is so small too! im just so accustomed to the size of the gnex. i feel it's the perfect size for me. so i think with the galaxy note, the ppl that have reservations on getting the phablet will get used to its shear size when they use it on a daily basis.
