Samsung Galaxy Note II, Pre-orders Galore

The Samsung Galaxy Note II comes packing a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display at 1,280 x 720, 3,100mAh battery and a quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor.

…it offers best-in-market performance, an S Pen experience that blows its predecessor out of the water, a solid OS in Jelly Bean and plenty of other features that will make this a tempting offer to even the most petite-handed individual. To do so in a package that’s actually thinner and narrower than the first Note is a tremendous accomplishment, and one that’ll be hard to match. Get ready to have your cake and eat it too.


Today is the last day to pre-order the Note II with US Cellular.  According to the website the $299.99 is exclusive for pre-orders.  We are unsure of the price online and in stores beginning tomorrow, Friday 10/26/12.  The Note II will only be available in titanium gray and with 16GB internal storage, and will cost $299.99 with a two-year commitment or $800 without.

Pre-orders are also live on AT&T and Verizon as of today and  Sprint should be allowing pre-orders today as well.
