Accessory vendor accidentally outs AT&T Galaxy Note; retracts it the next day


The Samsung Galaxy Note is one of the most popular imported devices right now. There’s already a ton of hype surrounding the quasi-tablet in the US, and with an official release right around the corner, the noise is bound to get louder.

Through various leaks and FCC filings, we’ve come to learn that the Note should be coming to AT&T along with maybe Sprint. Just yesterday, the AT&T Galaxy Note was confirmed for release by accessory manufacturer Anymode in a CES related email. Today, that information was retracted.

At this point, we’re positive the Galaxy Note is coming to AT&T. So when Anymode announced they’d been selected as the OEM accessory vendor for the AT&T Note, nobody was really taken by surprise. Except for maybe AT&T. We have no idea what happened after Anymode accidentally beat Ma Bell to her own announcement, but we don’t imagine it was pretty because today, Anymode has retracted their original statement.

The January 5, 2012 CES Media Alert titled “Anymode Introduces First Accessories for Samsung Galaxy Note” contained inaccurate information pertaining to AT&T and the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note.

The information was not provided by Anymode, AT&T or Samsung , nor did Anymode, AT&T or Samsung approve it.

The issuing party apologizes for the publishing of the inaccurate information and any inconvenience it may have caused.Anymodevia Email

The retraction doesn’t change the fact that the Note should be announced during the AT&T Dev Summit this CES, or that it should release sometime in February, but Anymode had to do it.

Is it still kinda funny? Yes. Even more so considering another AT&T Galaxy Note press render was leaked on the same day? Absolutely.

    I will get it if it has a healthy dev community like my Captivate does. I’m still hoping, wishing, waiting for the GNex announcement from AT&T though.

    I think this is going to be a winner for AT&T

    Using Note on AT&T with SIM from iPhone 4. Works great; Note has already become my favorite smartphone, and I have the Galaxy Nexus. Taking nothing away from the Nexus, it is certainly a fine device with great LTE speeds, but prefer Note.

    HSPA+ on the Note is fast, LTE should be fantastic. If you have any interest in larger screen devices, check out the Note before purchssing a competitor.

    Wishing T-Mobile would jump on this…

      Plus one on the tmo

        Tmo gets all the nice HTC phones; Let us AT&T peeps have this one.

        I think everyone saw this one coming to AT&T though, cant say im surprised, but i am cheesin’ 😃

    The Note would be great if it had not this fake HD screen with pentile #%&*. Also when it will be finally here with Sammys usual unusual delay on one or possibly two carriers all will turn their eyes to quad-core processors and other cool novelties.

      The Tab 7.7 has a SAMOLED Plus. *drool*

    So here is my dilemma, I just got the Skyrocket a month and a half ago. I have grown very accustomed to this thing they call LTE. I really don’t want Yi know if the Note has LTE, if it does why am I to do. Dammit this constant stream of Samsung devices is a double edged sword huh???

    • Dustin Earley

      It should have LTE when it comes to AT&T.
