All the consolodated questions so far. I don't really have time to edit them, to eliminate duplicates, but any of the Guides/Mods can help and edit my post:

What size screen? Different screen size for different carriers?

Flexible screen or no?

Ram? CPU?

Plastic body? Metal body?

Will they have different high end and low end models?

Can I have one for free since I own 4 different Samsung devices?

I'm not a big fan of TouchWiz - especially more than ever with what I consider to be borderline invasive features (SmartStay, S-Voice, etc.) --but it would be interesting to see if it is running anything new or different software wise, any new features, etc?

The rumor of a camera button interested me. If it has one, how does it feel, how well does it work, is it 2-stage, etc? (though I just had a fun idea, how about the S-Pen button act like a remote for the camera and can control the shutter action, letting you wirelessly click your photos)

Something to float by the Samsung rep. Will there be subsequent offerings of the Note 3 with other options or carrier differences that should be available to all? (thinking like the stupid new ATT Galaxy S4 "Active", The "Zoom" variant, or different colors) --durn beat by ovrrdrive!

Is reception the same as a S4 or better?

Will Samsung finally offer wrapped text?

Will carriers offer different versions at first release?
Needing one with gorrilla glass if available.

- Snapdragon 800 ?

- Overall size of the new phone, same footprint no bigger than the N2, but larger screen by .02" ?
- Design matching that of the S4 ? Or a radically whole new style ?
- Is the Note 3 thinner and lighter than the Note2 ?

And whats with the rumors of different sized Note 3's ? Will the main U.S. version be 5.7" screen ? But new rumors suggest each carrier will get their own different size, one carrier 6", one a 5.7", one a 5.5". Sort of like back when the U.S. carriers got the Galaxy S2, they each got different sized and shaped phones, I hope that's not the case.

to Ed-

My "wonders"-

Battery size and life, is it removable/upgradeable?

Is the screen to big to do things one-handed? (This was almost an issue with my GNex)

Will it work with a docking station?

Size comparison to Note 2 (and overall physical dimension measurements, if possible)

Screen size confirmation

Love the G-Note series!
