Samsung Galaxy Note II for Verizon hands-on -- Engadget. Note to SWMBO. My birthday is coming up in a few days. Christmas is coming in a few weeks. Not so subtle gift idea: Verzion branded Samsung Galaxy Note II. This puppy has a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display at 1,280 x 720 resolution (WOW). It has a 3,100mAh battery (long and strong) and a quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.6GHz (faster than angels). It brings back the stylus that I grew to love with my first Palm handheld computer. It should be out by the end of November; but, certainly before Christmas. It will likely be expensive, even on contract. Enough said.
