AT&T Will Begin Selling Samsung Galaxy Note II for $299 on November 9th

The much-anticipated follow up to Samsung's monsterous Galaxy Note smartphone - the Samsung Galaxy Note II - will be available for purchase through AT&T beginning November 9th. Along with a 5.5-inch screen, the smartphone comes with quite a hefty price tag at $299 with a two-year contract.

The Galaxy Note II will be available both in-store and online on November 9th, but pre-orders start on Thursday. It is the first phone on the AT&T network to feature a quad-core processor.

The Samsung Galaxy Note II uses a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos™ processor with powerful graphics capabilities. The Galaxy Note II is thinner and narrower than the first Galaxy Note, and it improves upon the original with longer battery life, as well as enhancements to the S Pen™.

The Galaxy Note II will run on AT&T's 4G LTE network. It will ship running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) on its 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED™ display. The 8-megapixel camera allows users to easily share their photos with friends through Share Shot, while S Beam™ lets you quickly share videos, pictures, maps and more with other Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S® III devices.
