    Yep - we're a week away from the actual Unpacked Event... but you can reserve your Note9 right now on the Shop Samsung app!

    So get a jump on the line: if the announcement doesn't impress you, cancel your reservation. Here's a screen shot of the app...

    Maybe not - from the choices of carriers, it looks like this is a US initiative right now.

    I strongly recommend, though, that anyone looking to reserve their Note9 select the 'UNLOCKED' version, rather than a carrier-branded phone. For some inexplicable reason, Samsung has caved to Verizon's demands that VZW devices get 'dumbed down' - with fewer, more simplified settings and pathetic carrier apps that replace the superior stock apps. As an example, the free 15GB Samsung Cloud is crippled on the Verizon Galaxy phones, replaced with the 5GB Verizon Cloud. I refuse to use it out of sheer principle.

    the Samsung 15GB cloud is crippled all around now as they will not allow you to upload your actual data anymore. Sort of defeats the purpose if you ask me.

    Oh, nice! Have you contacted Samsung to ask why? One would think that, if they were planning a replacement, they would provide that first...

    That's awesome news! I have the Bose Quiet Comfort 35s and they are phenomenal - so I look forward to comparing them to the AKGs. Whichever is better, I'll keep and sell the other one.

    No confirmation on the Galaxy Watch running Tizen or Wear OS... we'll see Thursday morning!

    39-1/2 hours to go!

    We're here to answer your questions and help you master your device. The Note9 is looking like a turbo version of the Note8: not many new features, but significant improvements to the existing ones. We'll see in 16 hours!

    Just watched unpacked and I don't believe they said when we can pre-order, did they? I just chatted with VZW on-line and they said they do not have the announcement yet for the dates.

    EDIT:

    Just saw on DroidLife.com that pre-orders will start tonight at 12:01 ET / 9:01 PT. However, looks like right now, only blue or purple will be available in the US at this time. WTF? Every phone I've had has been black. If I don't want to wait, looks like I'll get stuck with a blue phone with a nasty yellow S-Pen.
    Barf-o-rama!

    I know I can cover it up with a case, but I'm generally not a case guy, and nothing can hide the nasty yellow pen. Unless I explore my feminine side and get the purple lavender version. Ugg.

    Well, I'll be waiting for the black Note9 to be available. Maybe by then the price will drop!

    Hey, a guy can dream, right?

    Kinda sounds like Samsung is trying to sabotage themselves with those colors.

    I let Samsung have it, too. I sent them a flamespray email about the ridiculous decision to not offer pre-orders in black. Wow, it's only the most popular phone color in the world, probably by a factor of ten...

    I reserved a Note 9, and got a message on my Note 8 that my reservation was ready. When I clicked on the Notification, it opened the Samsung Store. it showed me the phone I reserved, and my Note 8 I am trading in. When I clicked to continue, the store stopped working, and I had to force close it. The Notification disappeared. I reopened the store, but everything was gone. Any way to get that back? Would love to get it shipped.

    My Shop Samsung app works great, and the Note9 is available in any color you want... as long as you want Blue or Lavender

    :p

    I got the typical non-response from Samsung this morning:

    Did Samsung seriously just not think that many people would be interested in a black phone???
