The Samsung Galaxy Note II has a 5.5-inch display and runs Jelly Bean. The phone/tablet has seen a slight delay getting into store shelves, but some carriers went live with online sales and promised shipment would arrive later this week. Even Samsung Canada noted on their Facebook page today that “We are working hard to get inventory to all of our carrier and retail partners, however in-store availability will be scarce until we get our full supply to stores over the next two weeks.”
Wind Mobile is one of the carriers who are on tap to launch the Galaxy Note II. We can now confirm that WIND will be taking off the “coming soon” stamp and officially launching on Thursday, November 1st. The price points you can expect to see are $399 on the WINDTab with the WIND40 plan, $599 on the WINDTab with the WIND25 plan, or $749 on a no-contract model. In addition, we’ve been informed that the Note II is only available to new customers who activate on the WindTab.
Update: Well, the Note II on WIND has not arrived yet. Like most carriers there’s some slight delay on shipments from Samsung. However, WIND now lists the pricing that we stated above. Check it here.
