Well what do you know – that thing Samsung said the Galaxy Note won’t come to the U.S. may prove false after all. Or as we said it – that probably won’t happen this year. However, now that the smartphone-tablet has cleared the FCC hurdle, it’s officially ready to be sold on the U.S. soil. What’s more, the version of the device FCC engineers had to play with sings along AT&T’s 3G/4G bands — yep, it’s HSPA+ compatible.
But… it’s also important to add just because some phone gets a clearance from the Federal Communications Commission, that doesn’t mean Americans will get to buy it soon. Quite the contrary, we’ve seen quite a few devices getting FCC’s seal of approval that were never introduced in North America.
My guess is that the Korean company is doing all the paperwork now and will most likely launch the Galaxy Note at some point early next year. Now that I’m thinking about it, they could easily do it right from the floor of the CES in Las Vegas…
