    Not at Best Buy or VZW stores yet.
    You may find one on diaplay at a T-Mobile, Sprint, or US Cellular store in your area as they have been selling them for about a week now.

    They actually fixed that issue fully for the SGS3. I've had one for a good while now and it completely blows the doors off of all of their previous offerings as far as radio quality goes. So as far as I'm concerned the Samsung stigma(horrible radios) is gone.

    Well there is another article on the front page about the DNA. Two things disappoint. The first is that it is a 'droid' branded device which implies a certain amount of exclusiveness to Verizon, that is bad news for me since I am a month away from going to sprint. The bad news for the rest is that it is labeled as having a non removable battery. I hope it has a maxx like battery and not a rezound like battery....

    Went to the Sprint store; got my hands on the Note 2 for a while. Very comfortable. I was surprised how comfy it was compared to VZW's GNex. The screen did not detect the S Pen very well - maybe I just didn't know how to use it or maybe it was a floor model failure. The screen was really crisp despite not being LCD. Definitely a phone to look forward to, imho.

    The non-removable battery thing still bugs me. I don't get why a company like Google/Motorola/HTC/Apple want to take that and SD cards away from people.

    The Original note was awesome like that too. Shame it never came to Verizon but I have my money burning a hole in my pocket waiting for the Note2

    Sorry about that, had to plug in...

    As I was saying, are you implying that battery life on the Rezound leaves something to be desired?

    My pre-order GS3 radio is very good even on original software. Very close and sometimes better than my Droid Razr Maxx and Rezound.

    Probably a bad comparison but I compared my Verizon Rezound with a friends AT&T SG3 sitting side by side and my Rezound was about 20 DBMS better. Like any phone geek I get the itch to update yearly and would love to put the Note 2 through its paces but I don't want to give up the Rezound's killer radio.

    You should certainly go toe to toe on the same network. But the SGS3 probably has the best radios of any Samsung offering to date. I'll update you in 10 days when I pickup the Note2

    You try the new radios yet? I see a bit more improvement with them as well

    Question 2: Can the camera shutter sound be turned off? It can't on the Sprint version - I've heard that's typical of Sprint phones, though.

    Question 3: If you don't LIKE your Note 2, will you clean it up and give it to me ... free of charge? Please?

    1) The bendable LED screen hasn't been created yet. They've done the bendable LCD, though.

    2) You can shut off any shutter sound by rooting(even if you don't run a custom ROM, you can delete/change the shutter sound)

    3) Suuuure, can you leave a million dollars on my doorstep? Preferably in unmarked non-sequential bills.

    2) wanna know if it can be done without rooting. I will ask again once you have the phone.

    3) I will FedEx the money to you tomorrow.
