Samsung's Galaxy Note II is finally available on AT&T and it will run you $299.99 with a new two-year contract. That price point is a bit expensive — especially when a Nexus 4 is the same price unlocked — but if we had to choose right now, right this second, we'd have no problem saying Samsung's Galaxy Note II is the indisputable winner of Android smartphones in 2012. Its size isn't for everyone, but its software implementation, screen and hardware combine to make a truly incredible package. The Note II has already made a pretty big impression around the world, and now it's time for the 5.5-inch device to overtake consumers here in the U.S. It'll be very interesting to see how it fares against devices like the iPhone 5, Lumia 920,  HTC Windows Phone 8X and even Samsung's own Galaxy S III.
