We know that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 phablet is heading to various markets in the following months, including the U.S., and we also know that no less than five carriers will get the device this year in the States, but we don’t have any release dates for either Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or U.S. Cellular.
