Samsung’s Galaxy Note II may still be a new Android, but it’s already a big hit with customers. We’ve heard some impressive sales figures, including the recent update that the Note II has already sold some five million units. That’s all the more impressive when you consider that the Note II hasn’t even finished rolling-out yet, and there are still millions of potential buyers who have yet to get the opportunity to purchase the handset. While we’ve already seen the phone hit a number of US carriers, Verizon’s been lagging behind; that’s all about to change, as the carrier has just announced plans to begin Note II sales tomorrow.
Starting tomorrow, Verizon will have the Note II available online and at its retail locations. The 5.5-inch giant carries a bit of a premium price tag, and on-contract Note II sales at Verizon will still set you back close to $300.
If you’ve liked what you’ve seen of the Note II so far and have been thinking about grabbing the Verizon version once it arrives, keep in mind that unlike the other carrier-badged editions, Verizon’s branding is a bit more obtrusive; it won’t matter to many users, but some may find the Verizon-logoed home button to be a little tacky.
