    Was just on the Orange site and saw that the Galaxy Note is listed as coming soon. So i called Orange and they told me that it should be out as soon as a fortnight or so..
    Too bad I can't upgrade(3months early) till Jan 2012. I'm really liking what i've seen/read about this phone.
    Any others opinions appreciated and are welcome.

    Same as yourself, I can't upgrade till Jan 2012. There are a few handsets coming out at the moment I like the look of, The Note, The Galaxy Nexus, The (rumoured) HTC Edge. We'll just have to see what's available when we're eligible for an upgrade (I'm sure there'll be a few handsets with similar spec to the Galaxy Note). :)

    Having just broken my N8 and seen the Note in action I am keen to buy one even though my renewal is also January 2012. The Note will be available for upgraders soon & for a charge Orange will do an early upgrade: waiting for the figures

    Yeah - he quite likes it... I had a bit of a play and thought it was perhaps a little too large. He used to have a DHD (as I do) and he said that he couldn't believe how small my phone felt in his hand now!

    I'm in the process of deciding if I need a tablet. I only really reach for my phone at the moment when adverts come on the telly or I have to pause the TV while her indoors nips to the loo or something. I quickly fire up facebook or feedly or something and then I'm done. The note might serve as a tab, thus negating the need to invest in one :D

    That is fair enough... although it is quite nice, I'm not a fan... found that it felt too "plasticky" for me!

    So, I recieved an email telling me that they were now in stock, I called them and lo and behold, they are not :mad:
    What I don't get is that I could physically nip into Phones 4 U and get a phone on Orange, and all it would cost me would be my Desire handset and a bunch of useless loyalty bonuses....... Why can't Orange just send me one, the kit is obviously out there.
    I seem to remember the same bollox when I got the desire. Very quick to sign you up and get you committed but very slow to provide the hardware. Don't even get me started on ensuring that the contract you end up with is the one that you agreed on the phone!!
    Any idea from Orange when it will be sending out its ICS update or will I get mugged off again like I did with the desire. Android 2.3 is available if I root but not via Orange who promised it and then decided that they were not going to bother with the Desire.
    Don't fancy getting teh Note only to find the Galaxy Note S appears and basically consigns my Note to the bin.... much like the desire.
    Excellent phone but only if you root :(

    Neither can my mate... he did put it down for long enough for me to have a little go a couple of weekends ago and I have to say I was impressed, but don't think I'm gonna go for one... just didn't feel solid enough for me!

    Just picked up a 32GB Acer A500 tablet though, so I've got plenty to be messing with for now!! :D
