Love it. Loved the Note but this is snappier, easier in the hand and much better battery life.

yeah, what I'm debating about now is whether I should carry a small phone and a large tablet, or instead an all-in-one large phone such as the Galaxy Note 2. Can't decide between the 2 choices.

I am doing the first currently though and I'm finding that it's inconvenient to lug around the tablet in a separate bag. But I'm comparing that against lugging around a big phone and I can't decide which is worse!! :)

Called my local Dick Smith, didnt have it there as they were a smaller store but directed me to others nearby that did.

Il be off scope it out tomorrow night!
there price of $999 is pretty dam reasonable I thought!

Called Noel leeming & yeah, not yet. The lady said theres no stock in any store as it hasnt been released to them by Samsung yet, no date given either.

Been hounding Telecom & Vodafone.... still getting the brushoff with 'very soon'
2Degrees never respond to any queries about it.

I want it on a good plan, hopefully free or chunky discount

Pineappleexpress.... Well yeah I realise that all I need is another Telcos sim card..... That's nothing to do with it! I'm waiting to see what the best phone/plan offer vf have on the note 2, till then I wait...


comments for others...

Spoke to someone at Vodafone tonight, the note2 came into stock today.
Pretty stupid it comes into stock & they make no sound of it at all... Considering how popular this phone is & will be.

For those of you with this phone, this video may interest you. It shows how you can use the smartphone as your PC.

We sure have come a long way since the first smartphone.
