The gigantic Samsung Galaxy Note II is available for preorder from Verizon and AT&T starting today. The ship date for the phone is listed as November 27th for Verizon, and much sooner for AT&T. That means that in just over a month you can have your hands on your very own Note II, as long as you are a Verizon or AT&T customer.
Both Verizon and AT&T are selling the device for $299 with a 2-year agreement. Verizon is selling the behemoth for $699.99 without a contract, and AT&T is selling it for $649.99. The phone is available in Pearl White and Titanium Grey from most US carriers.
The Samsung Galaxy Note II is one of the few phablets available on the market. It features a 5.5-inch touchscreen that blurs the line between smartphone and tablet. While the phone is a little on the expensive side, when you consider how much bigger it is than its competition, it's not so bad. To go along with that, the phone is packed with high-end features that make it worth the higher price tag.
What are those high-end features? Well the Note II has quad-core 1.6GHz with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and support for expandable memory. It comes with an 8MP camera on the rear of the phone and a 1.9MP camera on the front. It comes with Jelly Bean 4.1 installed out of the box. If you've been waiting for this extra large phone to hit the market, now is the time get your preorder in and guarantee that you'll have one come launch day. Verizon's Note II will apparently "ship by" November 27th according to their website, while AT&T pre-orders should start arriving for buyers on November 9th.
