Verizon was the last US carrier to the party when it comes to announcing its Samsung Galaxy Note 2 pricing and availability details. Well, technically the carrier still hasn’t announced them but this handy pre-order page is all the confirmation we need. Big Red has confirmed it would be selling the device starting November 27th, and the asking price to walk away with one (after rebates, contract extensions and all of that jazz) is $300, just like all of the other carriers except T-Mobile ($370).

Those of you wanting to buy the device off-contract can look forward to a $700 price tag, something that seems to be the standard (again, save for T-Mobile’s $650 price point). The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will come with the 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor and 2GB of RAM which combine for a buttery smooth experience. Beyond that, the 5.5 inch HD display with a Wacom digitizer and Samsung’s S-Pen with 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity will attract many people.

Other specs for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 include an 8 megapixel 1080p HD video camera , a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, NFC, 16GB of internal storage, and Android 4.1 with TouchWiz sitting on top. Verizon’s version will have one peculiar difference compared to the other carriers on board: its logo will be on the home button. But it appears that’s the only “blemish” we can find in an otherwise amazing device.

Kevin Krause determined that this was one device that should definitely be ahead of your wishlist of Android phones this holiday season, and even though Verizon will be the last carrier to offer its version it’s still going to be worth the wait and price of admission. Head to the carrier’s website to get started.
