Best buy mobile has a non working unit. I was told no working units until release day. I bumped into Samsung rep at ATnT store and got to use a real one. I am completely convinced it is the best phone for me and negates the need to buy a tablet. Also I cut a piece of cardboard to the phones dimensions to see if it bothers me in different pockets. It does not.
I checked out the non working unit in Best Buy as well, and definitely pre-ordered it
Hey Wayno, I made a cardboard mockup weeks ago and have been checking the size. I have no problem with it. In the store, the actual unit felt large in my hand that is used to the sorry iphone. I have no problem with it. It fits mont pants, all cargo pants and suit jacket pockets.
the next question is how large it will feel with a case on it?
I will be getting
Just on a whim I just decided to stop into Best Buy today. There was an AT&T rep on the floor. She knew I had done my research. I asked if they had a demo or "dummy phone." To my amazement, she showed up with one and I got a chance to feel it in my hands. Not bad. It fits in my pocket just fine. I'm sold. I even asked about "voice dialing over bluetooth." She called a guy named "Victor." I said, "I hope you're not calling somebody at customer service -- they don't know anything about the phone. With a smirk she said, "No, I have my own special hookup." Victor confirmed that the Galaxy Note had voice dial over bluetooth. Who knows if he is telling the truth, but I was impressed that she didn't bat an eye at my specific question.
