THIS is why you won't have the Note II until WELL after black Friday and everyone else. A phone that existed only as speculation and blurry images that could have been something else WILL be available on VZW before the Note II. BECAUSE it's a stupid Droid.

THIS is why I am on T-Mo to get my wife her Note II. And I get one as a side benefit of ditching VZW completely. Our existing device will sell for close enough to the cancellation fee to make me plenty happy. Side benefit, my HSPA+ on TMo isn't really much slower than LTE and I will have LTE-Advanced here next year and 20x20 LTE here eventually that VZW may never have.
