Looks like the #1 Android manufacturer is wasting no time in bringing their 5.3-inch beast over to the US. According to BGR, rumors suggest that it will be launching February 18th, that’s under a month away. AT&T plans to launch this tablet/phone hybrid device for $299 on contract, remember it is an LTE device. I really hope Samsung packed in a huge battery for this device, we already know LTE is a battery hog, but with a massive 5.3-inch display it’ll be worse.
BGR is also reporting that 2 new, unannounced devices will be making their debut the very same day — the Samsung Rugby Smart and the AT&T Fusion. The Rugby Smart is reportedly a $99 entry-level HSPA+ phone, while the AT&T Fusion, for which no specs are offered, will apparently sell for $124.99.
All of this is of course unannounced at this point, but if the Galaxy Note is planned to launch in mid-February we should be hearing more rumors very soon about it. Don’t forget to check out our Hands-on with the AT&T Galaxy Note from CES earlier this month.
Are you excited to get your hands on this massive LTE device that is coming to AT&T? Let us know in the comments.

If the Galaxy Note had T-Mobile’s “4G” frequencies I would have already purchased it–I think the size is acceptable for a phone and usable as a tablet.
I think it is perfect size for lying down in bed and reading. Looks way too large to be used as a phone. Also, they shouldn’t have done the 90s sytlus pen and instead used the space for an even larger battery or maybe made the whole thing thinner. Serious stylus? Seriously!
Are you serious?? For one its a trademarked S pen sammy specific. It does about 200 more things than a “stylus”…….go watch some videos, read some articles and do some overall research before commenting with such a bonehead remark…..
I’ve waited since the Newton for this thing… finally, a pocket-phone/tablet/Tool… not a toy, but what a tool it should be… Can you imagine, signing the faxes, documents, and other docs on the fly? No portable printer without drivers, no asking your local “Wherever You Are At The Moment” “Can I email this to you so you can print it out for me”… Yep, finally, the “All in One Machine”.
PS: should have been released around 1986!
I wish all the larger phones had styli. They’re very useful for navigating crowded webpages and selecting text on documents, as well as writing notes. I would like to check it out!
