However... even if it is *unveiled* in some near future, the international verson will come first in some time after that. And the US verson will be way behind the international release, especially since ATT Note is only a few months old.
Conclution: Im not going to wait for the Note 2... it will come when it will come.
Samsung is an Olympic Games sponsor and Beckham is the Samsung spokes person during the event. This is not to promote a new Note, rather to promote an Original Note Olympic bundle which includes some Olympic Games orientated apps and freebees.
