We saw the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 arrive in the US and go live for pre-order on Verizon Wireless and AT&T around the same time, but as we noted last month the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 had been 3 weeks behind the AT&T launch. We noticed a little red circle promoted on Verizon’s model, which stated the Galaxy Note 2 would ship by Nov 27, in just over a week now, although this has created a lot of frustration for Verizon buyers that feel a little impatient watching other networks have stock for a number of weeks.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 not Verizon’s focus — it is clear that the Galaxy Note 2 has a release date on Verizon in the coming days, but it’s just as clear that this handset is not the focus of Verizon’s marketing efforts right now. You can see this by going to the official Verizon Website and look for the Galaxy Note 2; it is not right in front of your eyes and takes a search. At the time of writing you’ll notice the HTC Droid DNA being heavily promoted, and also the iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia Windows Phone, HTC Rezound, and also the Motorola DROID RAZR HD.
Are you going to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 on Verizon, and if so how has the wait been for you? If you want to read the full Galaxy Note 2 user manual right now, you can do so on the official Samsung website here. The image above is from the Verizon website and shows a Titanium Gray Galaxy Note 2 with a clear ship date, so it couldn’t be clearer for potential buyers to see when the handset is expected to arrive, after you’ve found it on their online shop that is. You can expect Verizon to start promoting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 more in the coming days as we near its shipping date, well we hope this is the case anyway. The current price is just under $300 for a 2-year contract, although the DROID DNA and DROID RAZR HD are priced at just under $200.
Bottom-line: You can expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to ship on the 27th of this month, although the in-store release date will likely be a couple of days later. The Verizon Galaxy Note 2 will also come with a branded logo on the button, and we’ve recently seen this land at Best Buy stores in preparation for the launch.
