Earlier today, we reported that Samsung's Galaxy Note II will be arriving on all major US carriers, but so far it's only US Cellular that has opened its mouth about pricing and availability. If you're eligible for an upgrade soon, mark your calendars for late-October and set aside $300.
You can actually pre-order the phone right now on US Cellular's website, with the Titanium 16GB version currently showing up. Plus, if you preorder it, you get the $100 rebate instantly, whereas going into the store on release day will have you waiting a few weeks for the mail-in rebate.
We're hoping we hear from Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile soon as far as their plans for the Galaxy Note II. Since US Cellular doesn't quite have the established and reputable 4G network of other carriers, we're curious as to when other service providers will unleash the new phone to diehard 4G users on carriers that have respectable 4G networks. So far, it's rumored that AT&T will get the Galaxy Note II on October 21. We can only except other carriers will be the same.
The Galaxy Note II features a 5.5-inch 1280x720 HD Super AMOLED display, a quad-core Samsung Exynos processor clocked at 1.6 GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and an 8 MP rear camera with a 1.9 MP front-facing camera, all powered by a whopping 3,100 mAh battery.
