Earlier this month at CES AT&T announced six new LTE devices they would be launching on their network soon, including the first LTE Windows phone. But there was a device that was a bit more interesting to us, Android fan boys, the Samsung Galaxy Note which has been widely popular overseas. It is finally going to land in North America pretty soon. A Canadian carrier also announced they would be offering the LTE version of the device sometime in the near future as well, of course no specific launch dates have been given for either device.

The handset gained approval for its GSM/EDGE 850/1900 support in addition to WCDMA bands II and IV from the FCC. Aside from LTE connectivity, the Note is most known for its 5.3-inch 1280×800 display that blurs the line between tablet and smartphone. Inside waits a 1.4GHz dual-core CPU and 16GB of storage. This announcement was one of the biggest Android announcements at CES this year, and one of the most rumored ones. It was right up there with the Droid 4, that had been rumored for quite a few months.

Is a 5.3-inch device to big for you? Would you rather something smaller like a 4.3-inch or 4-inch? When do you think AT&T will officially release the device? Head down to the comments and let us know your thoughts.

    Having used and enjoyed the size of the 5″ Dell Streak for about 7 months, I look forward the larger more capable Galaxy Note. I would actually welcome a 6″ phone!

    I would love that size screen. Not too small but not too big.

    The galaxy note is simply brilliant i’ve had it for 2 weeks and can’t look at any other phone any more. It’s not too big definately its just right and it fits in trousers’ pockets.
