While this is still certainly just a rumor, it provides hope for all those drooling over the tablet/phone hybrid. It's possible that Samsung released it on AT&T while working on the CDMA for the device to be released on Verizon and Sprint. Verizon and Sprint can gauge how it sells on AT&T before they release it. Maybe this is another of Sprint's LTE devices to be rolled out in 2012.

LOL. The name is lame. But the Epic 4G Touch is a lame name too.

 

Maybe the Sprint version will be called the Epic LTE slab-o-phone?

I remember that about the Evo when it came out. It was substantially larger than anything else before it. I remember everyone was aghast when they saw it the first time. It was massive.

 

Now, my sons Evo next to my E4GT, it looks kind of small.

The videos ove at Mobile Tech Review on the Note are impressive to say the least. Yeah it does look big, but they said the same about the EVO 4G, Photon 4G etc when they came out. I am waiting to see this device in person to determine if it looks bad holding up to your face making a call. lol Still the stylus and bigger screen is something I like.

I was just told a few minutes ago by a buddy over in AF about this. This couldn't have come at a better time, I was going to get the AT&T one this Thursday as a b'day present and if this is true then I rather wait for the Sprint version, whether 4G or not. (But I doubt it won't be 3G only, most likely 4G LTE if they do get it.)

 

As I mentioned over in you tube, i wonder if anyone remembers when the iphone appeared in a similar ad and how long thereafter the device was actually available. It would be cool to compare and come up with a similar timeframe (if this is indeed the Note)

 

man, if sprint gets this qbking is going to hack the living daylights out of it. I think I am about to cry as excited as i am lol

I did a quick search on google to see if i could find out how longer it took for the iPhone to become available after sprint did something like this but no info that i could find. If anyone else can find something I'd love to see it. However log it takes I want one!, I doubt it will be 3G since the note is LTE over at AT&T so why wouldn't it be on Sprints shinny new LTE network?

Because it hasn't been tested in Sprint's LTE testing lab.

Assuming a 90 day exclusivity on AT&T we still have until the middle of May until Sprint can launch it. Plenty of time for testing before a possible launch. This could be a flagship device and sprint would be making a huge mistake to make it 3G only.

That's not quite how testing schedules work. Especially on a device that has never been on CDMA. An accelerated lab schedule for a device that already runs on a similar network would be more like 30 to 45 days. But given this device has never been in a network like Sprints, it would likely be longer. And then, after testing, the quickest it could get to market is another 30 days. They don't start final assembly plans until after lab testing.

Its conceivable that Sprint has had their hands on the device since February just waiting for the agreement with AT&T to run out. Robert would know more but either way i'm foaming at the mouth hoping that this device drops soon.

I do hope the Note comes to Sprint sooner than later. We have seen the LTE Lab/FIT device reports and schedule through September. So it would have had to be a new decision, and then be slotted to get into the LTE labs. However, if it was not a LTE device, then it wouldn't go through the LTE lab and FIT testing.

 

I think the Note is a very exciting device. However, I don't put much hope in a LTE Note hitting Sprint soon. And further, I think by the time it could get to market, the Note will be too old. Might as well try for the first round of the next GSIII based Note. If I am wrong, I will still be very happy! :)

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
