The Samsung Galaxy Note is surely the leader in the phablet market. A long time ago when full touch screen devices were on their rise to prominence the oversized paradigm reared its ugly face to the disappointment of many. The Dell Streak was one of the more notable early entries into the space and unfortunately it did not last too long. That said it did however please a select group of end users that maybe we should be calling “trend setters” now? Since then the world has moved forward and smart phone screen sizes just keep getting larger. The one standout however and the device that redefined the sector is the Samsung Galaxy Note and its now on its second generation and luckily for Sprint customers the device will be on sale in just a few days.
The Galaxy Note II made its international debut just a few weeks ago toward the end of last month. Its announcement confirmed its future existence on America’s top carriers and that statement is coming into fruition. Sprint has been on a launching spree with devices like the LG Optimus G, the Galaxy Victory 4G and the Photon 4G and by the looks of it the Galaxy Note II will make the carriers available line up just that stronger moving into the holiday season. The Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note II will as expected come with 4G LTE connectivity and a price point that just a bit more than the standard smart phone.
