Did I want it for what it is right now, not what it might become? .
I honestly don't understand this preoccupation with getting free upgrades.
Maybe phone OEM's started something that too many people now feel entitled to? I can understand the need for updates to fix bugs and software glitches, but this idea that I'm entitled to a free software upgrades is a little baffling to me?
I know what I'm saying is not popular, but the way I see it is that I purchased a device to suit my current needs and when those needs change I will purchase another device that's available on the market to address those needs.
When I purchased the Galaxy Note I knew it was the device for me based on its current hardware and software offerings. If they never change this current device I'm okay with that, because it works for me now.
However, if the Note 2 comes out and has a feature set that is better at meeting my needs then I'll purchase that one. If the feature set is not really improving the experience or is minimal then I'll likely pass.
Like the sentence above states: I purchased the Note for what it is today, and did not spend one minute hoping, wishing, and praying for an upgrade. To do so and then spend my time fussing and cussing when an upgrade doesn't happen in my timeframe, seems a bit strange.
I would say buy the car, house, TV, computer or phone that meets your needs today. When the time comes that your needs change then shop for, and buy the product, along with its upgrades, that serves those future needs.
Galaxy Note! Phone. Tablet. Planner. Notepad. eReader. The only device I need!
