For those eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note in the shelves of AT&T, the phone / tablet hybrid with 4G LTE support has already been launched by the carrier earlier today. Prior to its release, the Samsung Galaxy Note has already been reported to come with a hefty price tag and true enough, AT&T is asking for $299.99 for the phone / tablet hybrid with the requisite two-year agreement that will tie you down with the carrier for the next two years.
If you happen to have the hots for the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Note but still is undecided due to its rather hefty price tag, you might want to check out the deal that Amazon Wireless has for the device. That being said, the wireless arm of retail giant Amazon is already offering the Samsung Galaxy Note at a much cheaper price point of just $249.99 giving you a savings of 50 bucks compared to getting it directly from the carrier. Of course, the same conditions apply with a new two-year agreement with AT&T as part of the package.

And if you want to know what the Samsung Galaxy Note from AT&T has to offer, we suggest that you go through the specs sheet of the device to get enlightened and that is up next.
The Samsung Galaxy Note was announced by AT&T at CES 2012 and is now available in the shelves of the carrier for mass consumption. The device is a bit massive given its 5.3-inch display and its frame has dimensions of 146.8 x 83 x 9.7 mm and is understandably hefty at its catch weight of 178 grams.
Under the hood, the version of the Samsung Galaxy Note from AT&T eschews the proprietary Exynos chipset of Samsung but instead packs a QualComm MSM8660 SnapDragon chipset to keep things under control internally. Furthermore, the device relies on a dual-core Scorpion processor to deliver 1.5 GHz of computing power while its full gigabyte of RAM acts as a support system to the processor. As for its storage space, the Samsung Galaxy Note comes with an internal memory pegged at 16GB and is still expandable up to 32 GB by making use of the handset’s dedicated memory expansion slot.
In terms of its display, massive is one word that aptly describes the Samsung Galaxy Note’s screen. The display has a diagonal of 5.3 inches and is of the SuperAMOLED variant with a WXGA resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The device also comes outfitted with a very impressive camera department that will let you do away with your trusty point and shoot. That being said, your Kodak moments are easily captured using the rear 8MP shooter of the device while your video calls are handled by its front-facing 2MP snapper.
All in all, the Samsung Galaxy Note from AT&T is one capable device and its price point is expected to go down in time but should you want to be an early adopter of the device, then Amazon Wireless is te price to be. Buy the Samsung Galaxy Note starting at $249.
