One of the best signs that a device is close to hitting the market is if we get to see it pass through the FCC. This time around we have one of our personal favorites, the Samsung Galaxy Note. The device was first announced back last year in Berlin and since its launch in Europe, it has been selling in great numbers, the only thing stopping it from bringing some more cash into the pockets of those at Samsung being the launch of the device in the US. But the Samsung Galaxy Note release date at AT&T seems to be approaching quickly!
Although we already knew that the half tablet, half smartphone, half gerbil (scratch the last part) device would be arriving on AT&T, it’s now as “official” as it gets.
Samsung Galaxy Note Release Date at AT&T
Even if we don’t have an official Samsung Galaxy Note release date, a mobile accessories manufacturer has recently spilled the beans (just before CES) that the device will hit shelves in “early” 2012 (End of January ? February ?).
The Samsung Galaxy Note passed through the FCC and we got to see 21Mbps UMTS/HSPA+ along with GSM 850/1900 bands as well as band 4 and 17 LTE radios. Not only that, but the Samsung Galaxy Note is also coming with support for NFC along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. There are only a few unknowns left surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note US version.
If you think that the US model will be identical to the international one, you’re in for a surprise. Aside from those changes that are inevitably coming to the US models of Samsung’s toys it seems that US Samsung Galaxy Note will come with another processor than the “normal” model.

For the time being pricing as well as a certain AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note release date are both still missing.
If you are looking to pick up a new device, the 5.3 inch Super AMOLED HD, the 1.5GHz dual-core processor, along with the tons of features (did you know about Note’s awesome S-Pen ?) should make the Samsung Galaxy Note one of your top devices to get in this period of the year.
