Galaxy Note with LTE released for Korea, US hopefully next

The Samsung Galaxy Note is probably one of the most anticipated, unique, and best Android devices of the year. It has a great 1280 x 800 5.3-inch display, powerful dual-core processor, and even a HTC Flyer-like capacitive stylus. As such, it has been incredibly frustrating to see almost the entire world get the device before a US release date is even hinted at. 

Today's news brings us both hope that the device will come to the US and frustration that it hasn't yet. Samsung just announced an LTE version of this mini tablet which will be coming to the company's home of South Korea sometime soon. Although not specifically stated, this also hints that here in the US we could potentially see an LTE Galaxy Note on the likes of Verizon and AT&T sometime soon.

Considering the crazy price of the Note if you want it right now, a carrier discount for the US would certainly be welcome. We already known the Note is headed for AT&T 3G, but getting LTE connectivity would just make the device better.

Hopefully this release means that a LTE enabled US Note is coming soon, whether it ends up being 3G or 4G, I simply can't wait for this phone/tablet to finally land in the US.

    Waiting for this phone is killing me. If I didn’t think the US version MIGHT have 4G, I think I would be importing one in time for Christmas. But if I pay the big money and then AT&T launches theirs and it is cheaper and faster, I will be distraught. This
    Will be my third 5″ phone. Hurry, Samsung! Mama wants a new phone!
