AT&T Galaxy Note arrives February 19 for $299


Previously announced at CES, AT&T has now provided a launch date for the Samsung Galaxy Note. Customers who pre-order the Galaxy Note, starting February 5, at att.com/galaxynote will receive the device by February 17. For those who wish to purchase at retail stores, it will be available February 19.

As expected, the AT&T Galaxy Note will retail for $299 with a 2-year agreement and require a minimum monthly data package (starting at $20/mo). The February 5th pre-order date also happens to be on the same day as Super Bowl XLVI, which Samsung has announced they will debut a new commercial. Coincidence?

“The Galaxy Note brings a new level of efficiency to busy customers who would normally rely on multiple devices,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president, Devices, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “This new breed of smartphone helps consumers accomplish more with a single device than ever before. The unique all-in-one experience can simplify daily life while tapping into AT&T’s 4G LTE network to let customers work even faster.”

Highlights of the Galaxy Note include the world’s first 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen (1280×800), dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S3 processor, 1 GB RAM, the highly advanced input tool called S-Pen, and support for AT&T’s 4G LTE network.

The Galaxy Note has already surpassed 1 million units sold overseas and we recently got to spend some hands-on time with the device at CES. If you are on AT&T, let us know if you are considering picking up this device when it launches.
