    Hmm, it seems amazing, but the size is a little too big, maybe it's a tablet phone or call "phablet", :D

    Here's crossing fingers the Verizon model won't have that logo on the front as the Sprint one doesn't. But, we are talking about Verizon here....

    Ah the beauty of it. I can't remember the last time i anticipated a gadget so much. It genuinely feels like some thing new. Can't wait.

    I honestly do not believe there is any Verizon logo on the Verizon Note 2. One can clearly see (if you zoom in on the image) that there is a film on the front of the device.

    Completely agree. B/c if that pic you are speaking of is any indication of reality then the back & menu buttons are going to be in morse code.

    I agree with you guys. I can't see verizon putting a logo on the button. Just doesn't look right at all.

    I seriously am curious if the note 2 is much more comfortable to hold than the original. None of the hands-on vids seems to harp on it being more or less confortable to hold.

    Next couple months are gonna go painfully slow waiting for the official release.

    Something similar happened right before the S3 launch. Verizon's commercials about a week prior to the launch showed the S3 w/ their branding on it. This needless to say got everyone up in arms, however once folks got their S3's in hand it just never happened. Below is a pic of the S3 that never was ( thank goodness ) except for commerical advertisement purposes. If they didn't brand the S3 why would they brand the Note 2 ? Just saying...

    OMG I think your psychic. I JUST finished reading this right before you posted. I'm so addicted to any news regarding release that I'm constantly googling to see if there's anything new. This was the first that came up in my search...more than likely since it's dated 9/21 and all other info is old.

    I did exactly the same with the original evo and photon.

    Been doing it, this year, with note 2 and optimus g/eclipse and padfone 2.

    Supposedly that was the international phone, not the sprint version. I was watching the video here.

    Yeah, he says it's the international version on the video, but I have a feeling he assumed that just because there's no branding or it's possible the sprint folks could not officially say it's the sprint version. If you look at the 1:45-1:46 mark (& later on in the video), you'll clearly see the sprint zone app.

    So, my suspicion is that the only change on the sprint version is the sprint cdma radios and lte radio. ts might have been right also that the note 2 just might be a world phone (just hope, if it is, it'll have an unlocked sim). If this ends up being a world phone with unlocked sim, I won't even care if they offer the higher memory versions.

    Check out the icons on this one. I saw this article before the Examiner. 2nd column 4th row is Sprint Zone.

    I thought I was reading myself here for a second! Haha I've just set up a google alert now on my gmail. But to be honest, even then I'm still googling just in case it misses anything. Not long at all now.

    Although something on the samsung websites would be nice. Like, a countdown or list of the official dates we now know or something. All seems very low key.

    I want this phone very badly, but when I see pictures of people with it in their pockets I back off. I don't wear tight clothes, but either way it might be too big for a front pocket.

    Something I picked up on in the video.. "Sprint says it's coming this fall. LONG before the holidays."

    The use of the word long has me feeling in my bones Oct 21 as I think TS predicted.
