If you are lucky enough to live near a Fry's Electronics store and are still waiting to pull the trigger on a Galaxy Note.... I was in Fry's last Thursday and they had the Note, in-stock price of $199.99, plus they were giving away $25 gift cards for purchasing. Needless to say, I took the plunge. At this point, I absolutely LOVE my Note. Everything else, even the new HTC 4.8" phone looked small by comparison. I had a Galaxy Captivate and after spending an hour with the Note, even my 4" Captivate looked tiny. Then when I compared it to my wife's IPhone....I could hardly read it. Ha Ha
I know other places sell the note for $189-$199, but those are all mail order. I still prefer to make my major purchases in a fixed location in case problems occur.

I agree with you on two points.
1. I prefer to buy big purchases in a brick and mortar store for much of the same reason you mentioned.
2. After using the Note for just a few days the size becomes the new norm, and every other device seems so small in comparison.
I wish you the best with your new Note. Enjoy!
Galaxy Note! Phone. Tablet. Planner. Notepad. eReader. The only device I need!

Re: Fry's Electronics
I love being able to go into a store and go hands-on with hardware. Went into Fry's last week and picked up a 16 GB USB stick that is low-profile for $9. It is half the size of my Cruzer physically, when opened, and a third halfway folded, which makes it less likely to get knocked out of my trucks' stereo, where I have a five-day jukebox loaded up, with 9the gig of space left to add on.
Feeling a live phone is great, because pics don't replace touch very well. Same goes for computers and other mobile devices. (Also got a better deal on a Plantronics Voyager Pro+ Bluetooth, better than Amazon prices).
