U.S. Cellular announced on Wednesday that it will offer the Samsung Galaxy Note II for $299 starting Oct. 26. That wraps up the device’s five carrier plateau, with availability also on T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. Folks looking to partake in the phablet sensation can still pre-order the device up until tomorrow, after which the handset will obviously be up for sale in-store.
We reviewed an unlocked version of the 5.5-inch handset, and came to the conclusion that it’s the best Android smartphone money can buy, even in spite of its unruly size. In addition to its enormous screen, the device will come equipped with a 1.6GHz quad-core CPU, 3100mAh battery, 8-megapixel camera and 2GB of RAM. Oh, and Jelly Bean is on board straight away, meaning you won’t have to sit around and wait for Google’s latest and best OS.
