Samsung broke one of the biggest rules of presenting a device: Give a price and a release date. Samsung, I am disappointed. However, all is not lost. A source speaking to BGR claims that the device will be released on AT&T on October 21st. Let’s hope this is true, because I absolutely can’t wait to get my hands on one. And if Samsung plays their cards right (like they did with the Galaxy S III), we will see the Note II on every major carrier and even regional carriers.
As far as release dates, when Samsung states a release date in this manner its usually accurate and due to the recent lawsuit, they have to wrap this up so count on this one. The release date was negotiated in the lawsuit as it shouldve been released but Apple opposed it being released at that time due to the iphone 5. The only issue that could come into play is pre-orders. Sometimes pre-order releases can hurt supply availability in the stores so pre-order early when it becones available.
