    I'm still trying to find this out myself. My wife wants one. I like the phone also but it is a little too big for me. Also from what I hear there should be a Note 2 by the end of the year.

    I have a Epic Touch right now, but would love something just a little bit bigger... Especially since I've been recently addicted to the Kindle app :) I wonder if I get one on ebay and root it can I activate it on Sprint?

    Rumors, but not a single confirmation or real sign of it.

    Nope. It's only available for GSM networks right now. If you want to use it like it's a WiFi only tablet, go ahead.

    Mark my words, Sprint will not get the current Galaxy Note, but will get the 2nd generation of it. Now when that will be or the name it will carry is anyones guess, but I think Dec 2012-Feb 2013 is my theory and dare I say it, Galaxy Nexus Note for the name. :D

    At this point I don't think it would be good for Sprint to get the first Note. I have heard rumors that the Note 2 will be out in Dec. If that is true, Sprint should wait. But who knows with Sprint? Sprint should have skipped this last Nexus and went for the next one. I like the thought of a Galaxy Nexus Note. That would be a killer device!

    A Nexus Note would be unbelievable.

    Don't tease me like that... That'd be my dream come true! Especially if they upped the size to 6 or 7 inches. :eek::D;)

    Yeah, I love my Note, but I don't think I would, if it was much larger than it is.

    Yea, I think the Note is pushing it on the size factor. Personally, its way too big for me, but I can see how some may like it. Anything more and I wouldnt even consider it for a daily "phone."

    That would be a tablet with a phone on it. For me that would be too big.

    5.3 is definitely the limit I would go.

    Absolutely! I rarely use my phone for actual phone calls & when I do I use a headset anyway. So yeah! I'd love a 7" or even a 10" tablet that had phone call capability.

    In-fact, this is kind of what I'm waiting for. I'll probably keep my Evo3D until something like this comes out. Either a Galaxy Note 2 or a new 7" or 10" HD resolution tablet that has text and calls capability.

    So here's a question we haven't discussed. What do you think Sprint and Sammy will do to differentiate their GS3 from the EVO? The Epic got a keyboard, the Epic Touch got a larger screen.

    The current EVO and GS3 are going to be almost the same internally. You think anything will change? Larger screen? Bigger MP camera? Stylus support ala Note?

    I don't think they need to do anything to differentiate the two. Internally, yes they are similar, but externally they appear quite different. I really hope Sprint does not change the GS3 much. If they do, a kickstand and a dedicated camera button would be nice. lol. Of course that would would make it too much like the LTEvo.

    The EL TEvo is an HTC. The GS3 is a Samsung. They're extremely different because one company makes quality phones and the other one makes... It doesn't matter how much they change the GS3. It will still be a Samsung and I would never ever seriously consider another Samsung phone ever again.
