Lately, it looks as though Sprint is exerting a lot of effort to ensure that its subscribers could get their hands on the hottest smartphones that are currently available in the market today. Though the wireless provider was a bit delayed in picking up on the popularity of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus among our smartphone-crazed brethren, Sprint’s recent announcement of the addition of the HTC EVO 4G LTE to its lineup of Android-powered smartphones is news received warmly by Android fanboys all over US shores. The addition of the handset also served to take away some attention from the HTC One X which is supposed to be headed AT&T’s way. If things pan put though, not only the current Google flagship handset and the new superphone from HTC are making its away over to Sprint.
Buy the AT&T Galaxy Note starting at $249.
We are trying very hard to control our excitement as of the moment but we are rather hoping that one of the high-profile handsets, the Samsung Galaxy Note, has that possibility in ending up in the stable of Sprint because the phablet showed its mug in the website of the wireless provider. It wasn’t prominently displayed though and you still need to mouse over a certain thumbnail somewhere in the website but once you do, the Samsung Galaxy Note pops right at you. We are trying very hard not to put too much meaning with the sudden appearance of the phablet in the website of the carrier but it looks like Sprint is making use of an image of the Samsung Galaxy Note. The phablet doesn’t have any carrier branding though and its image shows the phablet sporting the four-button configuration found in the AT&T variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Sprint for its part looks to be building up on its stable of LTE-packing handsets with its 4G LTE network about to get lit up later this year and the Samsung Galaxy Note surely is one of the best handsets there is in the market today. We’re not sure if the sudden appearance of the phablet on the Sprint website is the fault of some lazy graphics artist using a generic image of the Samsung Galaxy Note but the addition of the phablet to lineup of Sprint will definitely strengthen its LTE handset base. We also have the specs sheet of the Samsung Galaxy Note below to give you an idea of what it brings to the table.
The Samsung Galaxy Note shot to popularity with its massive display and S-Pen stylus for pen input and note-taking support. It is pure power under the hood with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz and a full gigabyte of RAM giving the phablet a smooth and snappy performance. Storage space on the phablet is pegged at 16GB which is also expandable should it get depleted but the standout feature of the device is its gigantic 5.3-inch SuperAMOLED display with a 1280 x 800 resolution. Its camera department is equally capable with an 8MP main shooter at its back panel complemented by a 2MP webcam out front. Buy the AT&T Galaxy Note starting at $249.
