Galaxy Note Arrives At AT&T On Feb 19
The Samsung Galaxy Note will start hitting AT&T shelves on February 19th! Pricing looks like it will be $300 US with a two year contract, which sounds more like a phone coming to Verizon Wireless sadly. Different to the Euro black model, US market will get it on two color options: Ceramic white and Carbon blue. Like all of the other Galaxy phones, the US model has four control keys below the display instead of the two touch keys and the physical home button on the international model. The insides are also different, equipped with a 1.5GHz, dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660 Snapdragon processor instead of the Exynos processor in the international version.
The Note comes with a lot of accessories including:
Protective Flip Cover Case
Pen Holder Kit

I got the chance to play with the Euro version and the size didn’t feel as big as you might think, the over all speed is impressive, but I think the one thing Samsung improve is the external build quality.
What do you think of it?

Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
