After my earlier post about the availability of the Galaxy Note 2 AP sets, I came back from lunch to find that Samsung Mobile Malaysia has hinted that the Note 2 will be reaching next week!
Therefore, I would advice those looking to get the Galaxy Note 2 to wait for the official announcement and release. After that, we should get an idea as to the official pricing and the AP prices may also see a slight drop. With the Galaxy Note previously, Samsung launched it together with the telco companies like Maxis, DiGi and Celcom. They may do a similar thing (possibly next weekend). Watch out for the announcement.
Should a Note 2 be in my consideration for new phones? I have stated that it is a little too big for jeans pocket but I must admit that the 2GB RAM is tempting. However, the price is likely to be the main criteria that drives me away from a Note 2. In all likely hood, an S3 is the most likely.
