    Read an interesting comment in a thread on the forum below :

    http://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/zg4dm/htcs_5inch_phablet_makes_an_appearance_in/

    From "dreadnaughtfearnot" -

    VZW will still be releasing the LG, along with the Note II. expect to see all 3 phablets in the lineup. Which IMO is not a great idea for inventory purposes, but it is happening.

    I am employed by one of the companies involved in a position high enough up the proper chain to be "in the know". VZW announced the LG Intuition a couple of days ago, and it actually went on sale today: http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/store/controller? item=phoneFirst&action=viewPhoneDetail&selectedPhoneId=5951 I have used both the Intuition and Note II on Verizon's network, but admittedly have no hands on experience with the HTC. Expect the Note II in the 4th Quarter. A VZW version of it has been planned since the original Note launch, when Verizon opted to pass and instead pick up a second edition if the original sold well. On an Intuition VS Note II basis, while the Note II will almost certainly launch at a higher price point (at least it is planned to) the Intuition feels like a poor copy. While it runs ICS very well and the UI feels fluid, it lacks any "phablet" specific wow features. In short, it is a large phone with a stylus, and has a much smaller battery. The Note II will run 4.1 and has a bevy of useful features specifically for the stylus and multitasking. It also feels much better in the hand. I completely understand if you don't feel my information is credible, and no hard feelings. No I am not willing to state my exact company and position. Just trying to offer up a little bit of information.

    I got excited when I read the title of the thread. I opened the thread expecting to see a picture of the note and maybe an eta on when vzw will sell it. Then became very disappointed when I read that you were talking about the LG. Booo!

    READ THE COMMENT ABOVE from someone who supposedly is "in the know." He says Verizon *IS* getting the Note 2 !!!! Let's hope he's right, because that's the one I want !!!!
