Sprint releases the Samsung Note 2

Reading time is around minutes.
Samsung Note 2

If you have been waiting for the Samsung Note 2, wait no more! Sprint and T-Mobile are now both offering the 16GB version of the Titanium Gray or White Note 2. Both of these providers technically have unlimited data, and they are both the only way to get the Note 2 at this time.

Unfamiliar with the new “Phablet” from Samsung? It has a 5.5 inch screen, a stylus with so many functions I can't discuss them all here, a 1.6 ghz quad, yes quad core processor, and 2 whole gigabytes of ram. All of this raw mobile computational power goes to good use, so you can watch a movie while using another app, such as email, or a word processing app.To top this all off, the phone ships with Android 4.1 Jellybean.

So, how much can you expect to pay for this iPhone/iPad Mini killer? If you sign up for a 2 year contract with Sprint, you get a hassle free $350 discount off the MSRP, which leaves you at $299.99. T-Mobile offers the device with only a $280 discount, $50 of which is a mail in rebate. Their final price is $369.99. Also keep in mind that if you intend to use this device heavily, T-Mobile's “Unlimited” data plans will throttle your speed after a certain amount of usage. Sprint doesn't do this, however.

Do you think the new 5.5-inch Note 2 will take off? Tell us in our Forum
