The future looks bright for Samsung and their upcoming Galaxy Note 2 launch, and when we look back it’s easy to see why consumers love the original model, which went exclusive on AT&T. Shock could be one word used to describe what the other carriers might have thought after seeing the success of Galaxy Note, and we’re sure T-Mobile will be happy to receive the large smartphone this month, but what about the carrier choice for Galaxy Note 2?
Breaking a contract for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 — some people want the smartphone so bad they’ll break their contract for it, although it is hoped the Galaxy Note 2 will launch on more than just AT&T. Samsung need a better strategy to meet demand with the second offering, and we’re hearing from a number of PR readers that really want the Galaxy Note 2 on Sprint and Verizon.
Some delay expected for multiple carriers — there is a good chance we’ll see AT&T receive the Galaxy Note 2 first at launch, although you can also count on a staggered release for each carrier. We know the Galaxy Note 2 is being revealed on August 29, thanks to a Samsung rep, although Samsung need to be clear with the release date for each carrier to stop people jumping ship if they have to wait too long. Most people will wait until their eligible for an upgrade, and certainly not much longer than this if there aren’t any clear launch dates.
Are you desperate to see the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 launch on Sprint and Verizon? Something that is extremely favorable with Sprint is their 4G LTE network, and when it comes to Verizon you’ll find the biggest 4G network, so this is just one reason why a lot of consumers are requesting the Galaxy Note 2 for other networks. Then you have the different coverage for each area of the United States, and AT&T will not do for a lot of people, which gives even more weight to other carriers being needed.
There needs to be balance when it comes to the different carrier launches, and some people have voiced fears that the dates could be too staggered like with the Galaxy S3, so let’s hope the gaps are just a couple of weeks apart at the most.
