Featured: O2, Vodafone, And Three Get The Long Awaited Galaxy Note 2

October 1, 2012 - Written By Mike Stenger

Those of us here at Android Headlines have been pretty excited about the Galaxy Note 2 for some time. With a slightly larger display, better processor, and more goodies, it’s looking to become the best compromise between a smartphone and a tablet yet.

While those of us here in the United States aren’t quite as lucky, those in the UK can pick up the Galaxy Note 2 today from three different carriers, Vodafone, O2, and Three. O2 and Vodafone haven’t released pricing details yet, but Three has fortunately. The Note 2 will cost you just â‚¬69 with the purchase of their â‚¬34 or €36 per month service plan, or â‚¬499 if you go with their pay-as-you go plan.

To give you a brief recap of the specs, here they are:

  • 5.5″ HD Super AMOLED HD display
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection
  • 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • Up to 64GB of internal storage with microSD card support up to 64GB
  • 8 megapixel rear-facing camera
  • 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera
  • 3,100 mAh battery
  • HSPA+ compatible
  • S Pen functionality
  • Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean

It’s shaping up to be a rather impressive phone and we look forward to the Galaxy Note 2 making flight overseas here soon. Do you have an interest in the Note 2 or is it a bit too big for your taste?
