Samsung Note is nice device, I bought a Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket for my girlfriend (xmas gift) and I still using my TBolt (Thunderbolt) rooted running MIUI ICS ROM. I really wanted Note and Verizon doesn't offer. :(

I have 2 Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1 tablets, Both are rooted and running Task650 ROM.

I'm running a Nexus One and have no plans to change any time soon. Since most of the developers use this phone it gets lots of love with software releases such as Cyanogenmod.

As for Crapple products, I absolutely hate the company. I use to have to support some of the iphone/Ipad users here at my job and holy shit does crapple make it a pain in the ass to do what should be easy. Having to use itunes to transfer files, video files have to be exactly the perfect size and codec, what a pain in the ass.

They could fix this really easy but just allowing you to plug it into your computer, have it show up as a drive like every other device in the world and read/write to it. Problem solved. Oh, linking devices to certain computers... more ridiculous bullshit. I weaseled out of having to support these products thankfully. IT admin nightmare to deal with.

If I want to add a picture to a device I want to plug it into USB and drag/drop what I want into a folder, not some retarded dumbed down interface that complicates my life and only works with certain linked devices.

Only think I like about crapple is they have great MS Exchange server active sync support.

A phone 6" long x 3.5" is huge, a bit like sticking a ipad to your ear reminds me a bit of my first phone some 15 years ago, needing one being a sub contract carpenter, a uniden that was like a 3 x 2 x 8 timber and the weight of a brick that size with a massive 7 hour standby time that i later added an external power source, wow how times have changed and we still winge that these devices cant do more, got to admit that my lg optimus p970 black is much more than a phone but doesn't wake me up in the mornig like all my previous ones could without leaving it on all night

Got a good new ol' desire for a very good price on ebay :)
rooted it 2 hours after opened the box and "S-offed" it in a raw ^^
I now use the runnymede ROM 3.0.4 from sebastien15 (gingerbread + sense 3.5) from the Sensation XL with snq kernel. Everything works like a charm, smooth and fast like a stock 2.1 UI AND with X2SDX script I got 1.6Gb place for my apps (If I ever need it ;) )
The sound is actually reaaaally good (I use it mostly as a mp3 player and I'm quite "audiophile") *if used with the "dspmanager.apk" and real good Headphones (Xears XE200PRO ebony for me)
Android rocks and the Xda-developers forum is the right place to learn. Something like here. Full of motivated people who NEVER will do what's written on the box ;) or at least not without knowing what does that mean ^^
Happy to see here people sharing the same "way to think" :mrgreen:
Gruß,
H.
PS: would be great in the future to get an app for the forum. I know that a lot of people don't really like the though but an app like the XDA would be awesome :) I'm also waiting someone to design any CA compatible app ;)

Due to some development work I'm doing on the side with a friend, I decided to move to android last month..... found a Captivate S on craigslist for cheap and bought it. rooted it and installed CM7.... used it a while and bluetooth was wonky and it ate battery like nothing else. Then apps started to crash.... restored but it just wasn't cutting it, so I went to MIUI.us..... and I love it. Battery lasts a long time, bluetooth works.

Kinda looking for a new android phone now.... looking a little at the LG Thrill (3D display and camera). Not sure if I want to jump ship in Jan when my contract runs out, or if I want to switch. Right now I have "unlimited" data, so I don't know if I want to give that up, althought I don't use more than a 2Gig right now.

As far as the forum app, tapatalk supports phpbb, the admin's need to install the module.

Wooooot!!! My new phone arrived. :-)

I was worried it would be cumbersomely large. It's actually just perfect! I'm super super super happy with it! Woot!!! Fits effortlessly into my pockets, feels perfect in my hands (I do have giant hands), and it's SOOOOO nice to type on, I can just fly on this keyboard, and it doesn't feel like my fingers are making a stretch at all, it's more like they are getting to type without feeling cramped up.

I'm very very very very happy with it! $750 well spent. All ready makes my Evo 4g feel like a crude primitive device.

In 20mins or so it should be rooted and hacked, and I will start trying out various custom ROM's to see what I like best on this beast.

Those pictures on my screen make it look like the text is unreadable garbled mess, but the screen is 1280x800 resolution (higher resolution than most laptop screens and many computer monitors), and it's perfectly clean and clear and readable in person. The photo just can't replicate the screen without being huge, and from a better camera than my Evo's.

Oatnet- my laptop has resolution envy too. :-) And contrast envy. It seems insane a tiny mobile disply can have such inky dark blacks, and have such a vivid color pallet. looks perfect from way off angle still, and even stayed totally usable in direct sunlight with glare today earlier.

Im all hacked and on my 2nd ROM and 3rd kernal today. Over clocked dynamically, saves power when idle, goes to dual 1.6ghz cores when working. Which is something it spends roughly zero time doing now, because the new OS is totally de-bloated and streamlined.

Im am really really happy with it. My 4.3in screen evo feels like a clumsy childs toy to try to type and browse with now, and just yesterday i was loving it. Lol

Here is the galaxy note shipping from amazon prime for $636 shipping included...641 with next day air delivery.

I bought mine from amazon and converted my existing iphone unlimited data contract to the note. Amazingly the at@t store did the conversion for me and swapped out the data card for free.

Luke,

I have the Dell Streak. It's pretty similar to the note in terms of size. I love it. Yes, it's big and everyone makes fun of me and random people say "is that a PHONE?" but it's perfect and it fits right in my pocket.

My next phone is probably going to be the Note.

Right on, I had often considered the streak when it released.

I couldn't be happier with the Note, it's absolutely everything I had hoped it could be and more. Perfectly suits me as a phone, the size has never been a bit of an issue yet, I hardly notice it in my pocket. If I wasn't a huge guy with huge hands I could see where it could potentially become an issue though.
