    Its too early for a Note 2. I'm just getting used to my Note 1 with the recently updated ICS on it. Plus the new specs arent enough to warrent an upgrade this soon and lowering the res to 720p wtf? Keep the current 1280 x 800 res please dont dumb it down Samsung.

    The dual-core in the current Note is a little sluggish in my opinion. I have both the Note and GS3 and the GS3 is much snappier so updating the Note 2 with the quad-core warrants the upgrade alone in my opinion. I cannot wait for it to come out ;)

    SGS3 also has Jelly Bean which would make your note a lot more responsive.

    It's not too soon for a Galaxy Note 2 for me. I didn't buy the first version. So I say bring it on. It can't get here soon enough in the event that I decide to purchase it. :)

    But is it still sluggish with ICS? My gingerbread one is way too sluggish and decided to sell it (international model in the U.S.) because it will never get the ICS upgrade. Was going to buy the ATT version (even though I hate giving up my physical "home" button) but am on the fence now, waiting for more news on Note 2. However, even if it's announced the end of August, we probably won't see it in the U.S. until next year sometime (I'll never by another international model because they never get an OTA upgrade), so rather than be without a Note (I have the SGS 3 now and want my note back) until next year, I might get the ATT Note 1 right now, then think about upgrading next year.
