I am hoping that will be the case as well.
Sprint (and everyone else) announces the Note 2 on Oct 24th. Start pre-selling for two weeks. Gets deployed in stores on Nov 11th. And then on Black Friday, BAM Amazon/Sprint/BestBuy sell it for 150.00

Then and only then will I say screw the 32/64 version and get the 16. lol

Although I am really wanting the 32/64 one.

and I agree with Dan, if a black friday sale goes with the Note, Sprint will make a killing.

The only problem with Black Friday specials is they're usually limited to stock on hand. I believe the rumors about the $50 GS3 are only for brick and mortar stores with that stipulation. Of course, as drex pointed out, that doesn't mean other places can't or won't price match.

If the Note 2 has a special Black Friday deal, my only concern about the Best Buy price match is that they require whichever store has it, to actually have it in stock.

Crossing my fingers and toes that there's some sort of special on Black Friday because everything is pointing towards my pre-ordering the Note 2.

but if Sprint is having a black friday special ... then you should be able to order it on their website.. even if back order.. they will send it to you.

i would rather NOT go out to stores and fight the crazy crowd... early in the morning too!

right?

Well, Best Buy is my only option (uber gift cards to spend), so hopefully the sale will be all day, which means I can go to Best Buy in the afternoon and just have them match...that's assuming best case scenario and the Note 2 gets a deal also.

Just when it seems like I've made up my mind, an article comes out that makes me pause and slow my decision down:
http://phandroid.com/?p=109306

I'd actually consider getting a new plan from another provider, if this didn't make it to sprint, just to have this and the note 2. Then again, maybe I'll just take my buy back from best buy for my photon and buy an unlocked padfone without activation.

padfone is very cool phone.. and innovative.

it has a lot of cool factor..
but not sure if i am buying the usefulness of it.

would it not be more useful to have 2 working devices? a phone and tablet.
the padfone.. you can only use 1 or the other. but you still have to carry around both.

hhhmm.....

Depends on how it's priced. If it were 50 more than the galaxy note 2, at a subsidized price... much better than paying double to have 2 devices. For me, it'd be the convenience of having files stored on a single device, so i won't need to be sure the files are on 2 devices.

so, what happens to the cloud when ur on a road trip or business trip and don't have signal? lol... or even better, ur on the road and the signal pops in and out. No more cloud... lol

I like the cloud, but will never rely on it. Here's another fail. All the cloud drives I use (Google drive, dropbox) are blocked by my work.

I feel you. Was just messing with you. This is the reason I couldn't ever have a device without expendable storage. Relying solely on the cloud would never work for me.

Somehow, I shoulda known u were...lol. That's the big sell for Google, but it's too bad their big sell is dependent on providers being able to have connection everywhere. I think that's why Google is trying to expand google fiber. I could easily see them selling, "if your provider can't get you online, Google Fiber can." They'll start having wireless routers that'll allow google Fiber customers to connect to wifi, while out and see about. Time Warner kinda does it already.

One of these days (probably in a galaxy far far away) The manufacturers will just make wifi phones and have plug in radio adapters that get attached to the usb port. the adapter would have the radios for your carrier as well as a sim slot etc. The moment you connect it to the wifi phone, you get charged by the carrier. Unplug it and switch to another plug in radio adapter (for overseas) and the device can be used anywhere with anyone you choose. Be it Sprint, verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, O2, or even Googles Fiber.

If they kept the RAZR name, it would almost certainly be a Verizon exclusive (in the US at least), since that particular branding for Android phones hasn't been seen anywhere in the US but Verizon. I'm actually a little surprised Big Red allowed their pet lapdog to make an international RAZR.

I seen the clock, it does say 12:03 constantly however this commercial isn't for the states. I highly doubt that date is for the us launch. I'm hoping it hits this month. Consider my Sprint phone is for business, this device would be perfect for me and my company

Though some of the specs for the new lg phones look impressive, i have had a couple bad experiences with lg devices, the last 2 actually. I just don't care for lg anymore. I feel they should stick to making refrigerators.

I would consider an LG Nexus, but I'm not a fan of LG's software myself. The leaked pics of the possible prototype look... interesting. Not sure about the disco ball back.

Lg nexus is already dead for me. Non-removable battery, no micro sd slot, only up to 16gb version available.

The regular Optimus g is looking more appealing with the release stating it might have a microsd slot, but at least it comes with 32gb of internal storage.

My choice is almost set on the note 2 though. Too much potential support to ignore.

Though i think the new lg optimus had some nice specs, i am still set on the note 2. Look at the software side of things. Lg doesn't have the best track record with software. Samsung, they seem to focus a lot on software lately. The note 2 isn't just hardware, but the features embedded into the software is what really fleshes out the device. I haven't seen enough of the lg to even give it any thought. Samsung, they have been showing the note 2 off left and right

There's been coverage of the Optimus G, but not as much as the Note 2 more recently. In fact, there were really early leaks of the "eclipse" as it was called early on. Thing that scares me the most about the Optimus G is that it could end up like the Photon. Great device with monster specs, but lack of US sales creating a disconnect for necessary support.

here's some stuff:
Bold 4G LTE Lineup from Sprint Gains Four New Powerhouse Devices

"These four new 4G LTE additions will be available this fall and will provide customers powerful devices that fit their lifestyles:
-Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is the first tablet to combine the benefits of Sprint 3G and 4G LTE with a vivid 10.1-inch touchscreen display, Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
-LG Optimus G features an advanced 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, making it a dream device for photo lovers who are ready to leave their point-and-shoot at home and just carry their smartphone.
-LG Mach makes 4G LTE accessible as an inexpensive yet sleek smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard and Sprint ID.
-Sprint Plug-in-Connect Tri-Mode USB brings Sprint 3G/4G/4G LTE directly to a laptop through a USB connection."

No exact dates.. says "this fall."

Rumor has it that in addition to LG; HTC, Samsung and Sony are coming out with a new Nexus. I've not owned a Nexus device and definitely interested. But, the OEMs are doing a better job of keeping up with software update, right? So one of the main reason for owning a Nexus is no longer a major deal. On the other hand, the Note 2 has a pretty major skin on top of Android, so software updates for it might take a bit more work.

So, I'm now torn between the new Nexus and the Note 2. The point will be mute, of course, if Sprint does not release the Nexus prior to the holidays. I just can't wait beyond that.

Negative. Those updates come directly from Google themselves. Faster than any OEM update you'll ever see. Not to mention, it's pure AOSP.

Agreed. Even though the US CDMA Nexus's take a little longer than international versions for updates.. they are still much faster than OEM's.

I kind of like the back actually. But with non-removable battery and rumored 8 and 16gb options, this phone is a no go for me.

And still the only phones in the US running Jellybean*, as far as I know. Even the Optimus G is shipping with ICS. Foo on that.

As for the LG Nexus, I'm waiting for official word from Google on specs before I write it off for lack of memory/sd card/removable battery. Some or all of these things seem possible (even likely), but until we get the official word they're just rumors. The Optimus G announcement does seem to suggest that Sprint won't be getting an LG Nexus this holiday season, so unless there are multiple Nexus phones looks like I won't be upgrading until the Spring.

That is, if the Note 2 doesn't totally wow me when I check it out in person. May have to break my pledge to only go Nexus from here on out if it does.


*Not counting custom ROMs, of course!

Being that i use my phone for business, it seems that the note 2 is my best bet. I just hope it ships October 24

I don't disagree. Updates do come faster to the Nexus line, and the software/hardware combination is supposed to work better together. I'm just saying the OEMs are getting better at releasing updates. Obviously, they will never be as fast as direct from Google.

I wonder if the LG Optimus Nexus will sell for $299 from the Google Play store (without activation I mean)

I'm tempted to sell the GS3 for this phone, pending reviews of course

Doubt the Optimus Nexus is available for Sprint activation, considering the actual lg optimus g was announced.

http://phandroid.com/?p=109456

But, considering Sprint kept the entire Korean version intact, along with no microsd slot, it's no longer an option for me. Loved the form factor, but no extra storage slot is such a deal breaker for me, even more than removable battery.

Even though the Optimus G has dropped on my list, the dark horse choice is still the asus padfone, for me, which I'm even considering purchasing off contract:

I thought there's some kind of Google/LG announcement next month? Maybe there is still an LG Nexus version coming to Sprint, in addition to the LG OEM version.

Yeah, there is, but no reason to believe the Nexus device ia going to be available for Sprint. Most Nexus phones sold through the play store are unlocked world phones. And att or t-mobile are only providers that can activate unlocked gsm phones.

Given that the rumors claim the LG Nexus will have an appalling amount of internal storage and no LTE radio, I'm betting on multiple Nexus phones even more now. The LG phone, if the rumors are true, would be a good, cheap, unlocked "international" version that Google could sell for a song on the Play Store, much like the 8gb Nexus 7. However, US customers are going to want a phone with more storage and LTE support. That points to other Nexus phones, such as the rumored Galaxy Nexus 2 and the Sony Xperia Nexus.

Will Sprint get any of them? Good question. I suspect they will, eventually, but again I think it won't be until the spring. But maybe I'll be surprised, and we'll see a Sprint Nexus phone for the holidays.

I'm anxious to see how the LG Optimus G (Nexus) feels in hand... in terms of build quality.

I have the GS3 now, and it's just a little too cheap and plastic feeling for me. I hear the LG has a nice build, and the back is glass... which is a lot more luxurious and better than plastic IMO
