Just talked to a rep last night in Idaho ( best call center out there next to californias btw) and he said the same thing. I asked where he got the information from and he said he got it from callers that called in a few days ago or so. He also said he gets the best most up to date information from callers who call in with rumor info. Since it wasn't from a rumor site as I can't find any info on it, I'm wondering if this isn't a leak or.. is it a bunch of people messing with them? I don't know.. but to back up what you were told, I heard the same thing. I think he said June-September time frame, I guess 2nd quarter. THAT would be AMAZING! I'd wouldn't like an HTC one because for one thing Samsung has already the experience with this type of tablet/phone and have done such an outstanding job on it, and for another thing HTC phone radios are worse than Samsungs. I can't get a signal in my house on an HTC phone. So it's a no go. But for a Note I'd be willing to even just depend on Skype for calls to have the functionality of the sPen and everything else. Agree with you on the size of the HTC screen, assuming its true. That would suck missing out on the extra screen real estate.
I have a Droid 3 and have been SERIOUSLY considering leaving Verizon after 10+ years with them, having an unlimited data plan for AT&T, as in I was going to do this as soon as I had the money for the Note.. but this is keeping me around a bit more... May is also when the exclusivity agreement with AT&T ends for the Note so this is a possibility. They've had more than enough time to work on it.. the original Note came out like 7-8 months ago already. After the 2nd quarter though I think my patience will have run out.
