Between its Exynos 4 Quad, big, beautiful display, and unique S Pen stylus, there are a lot of reasons to be excited about the Samsung Galaxy Note II’s arrival. We’re expecting to get the full story on October 24, when it looks like Samsung will be holding a press event for the Note II. Earlier this month, we saw a leak out of T-Mobile suggest that the carrier intended to start sales of the phone on October 24, as well. We wondered if everyone involved would begin sales on the same day, in a coordinated effort, but now Sprint has weighed in with its own Note II announcement, and it’s got just a slightly different plan in mind.
Sprint will begin sales of the Galaxy Note II on October 25. This is going to be a bit of a pricy one, though, and even on-contract the Note II will sell for close to $300. We’re sure to see that start coming down quickly, especially with holiday deals on the horizon, but early adopters will still have to swallow that price tag.
There’s no word about any pre-orders, so sit tight for now if you’re hoping to snag a Note II later this month.
