Samsung Galaxy Note from AT&T launching on Feb 19 for $300By Shawn Knight
AT&T has announced that the Samsung Galaxy Note will be available for purchase starting February 19. Available in carbon blue and ceramic white, the Note will set buyers back $299.99 when purchased with a two-year service agreement.
"The Galaxy Note brings a new level of efficiency to busy customers who would normally rely on multiple devices," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. "This new breed of smartphone helps consumers accomplish more with a single device than ever before. The unique all-in-one experience can simplify daily life while tapping into AT&T's 4G LTE network to let customers work even faster."
The Samsung Galaxy Note for AT&T was first introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month. The hybrid phone includes a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor operating at 1.5GHz, a 5.3-inch 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED HD display, an 8MP rear-racing camera with 1080p HD video recording capability and a digital stylus known as the S Pen.
The phone is largely unchanged from the international version that has been available for a few months except for the addition of a 4G chip that works on AT&T's LTE network. Wi-Fi b/g/n and GPS also come standard.
AT&T's press release also points out several accessories that will be made available alongside the Galaxy Note LTE. These include a desktop dock, a spare battery charging system, a protective flip cover case available in multiple colors and an S Pen holder kit that allows for a more comfortable grip of the stylus when using.
Those anxious to get their hands on the massive smartphone can place a pre-order starting February 5 online or at any AT&T company-owned retail store. Pre-orders are expected to arrive by February 17, two days before the in-store launch.
