    Ok, the LG Intuition debuts today online and in stores on the 10th. Aside from the boxy shape and nowhere to store the pen (which is DUMB), it looks and sounds really great.

    But now I'm wondering about THIS ONE and wonder if I should hold out.

    Any thoughts ????

    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 !!!!

    Agreed. I thought the same thing. Absolutely terrible thread title. The Intuition is not the Verizon version of the Note.

    Sorry. I should have said "competitor" maybe ?? I meant to say that it's the first "PHABLET" by VZN, but since I saw that, I've seen all this other promising news, because I think the Intuition looks and sounds HORRIBLE and I can't understand why VZN would push it out right before allegedly introducing and HTC Phablet and the Note 2.

    If the VZW gets the Note 2, I will pay full retail for it, and my (currently) brand new Droid 4 will have to resort to some, as yet undetermined, secondary duty.

    Yeah I'm with u. Thankfully I've been WAITING to use my upgrade discount on that stupid Note, if it ever GETS HERE !!!!! Grrrrrr...... For now, I'm limping along on my sluggish, glitchy Droid Pro.
