Verizon Galaxy Note 2 pre-order page live; November 27th for $300

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.

    I’m just going to tape the home button

    I knew Verizon would pull something like this. Charging an extra $50 full price from other carriers just to screw us on unlimited plans some more, releasing it a month late, and really with the damn home button? I agree with that Gizmodo article, Verizon really is an evil company run by evil people who forgot what it is to be friendly and care about others, and only care about money and screwing us and they put it right on the home button to remind us! http://m.gizmodo.com/5954713/ugh-verizon-plastered-its-logo-on-the-samsung-galaxy-note-ii-home-button

      They need to charge the extra $50 for the VZW symbol on that button.

  • deh2002

    I wonder why they are releasing it so late. Wonder if they may have cut a deal with apple to not sell it within a certain time of ip5 launch possibly.

    • Aslan Bollin

      The need that month to print their logo on all them home buttons….. XD

    • Go Hawkeyes

      They need the time to lock the bootloader.

      • RavenFox

        yup, all of the above.

  • jerry Joe johnson

    How many logos can Verizon pur on one phone? They’re already giving me the shaft, do I have to advertise it to the world everyday, too?

  • ffolkes

    Here’s a thought…what if the home button is actually mapped to bring up some sort of Verizon bloatware?

  • coreyk31

    Verizon always has more than one logo one on front and back. Just be glad they are getting the note2 at all.

  • Unorthodox

    I love that my RAZR has no non-Moto markings whatsoever. I wish there wasn’t that stupid FCC label either the one they had to put on the back due to irremovable battery.

  • Unorthodox

    I disagree with Gizmodo. It’s not a face tattoo, it’s a tramp-stamp.

  • GavinGG

    I have been waiting on this god like device for months now,… AND you’re telling me I have to wait a whole nother month for this…… This is bittersweet news. I could really care less bout the logo cause its not affecting the specs and hardware!!! Don’t want to stay with Sprint since I have a 50% discount with VZW, but it’s gonna be hard waiting for this. #pissed

    I don’t see what the big deal about the button is. If you don’t like it, get creative.

  • eric

    • RahjerDat

  • vicpatd
