At the time, it was believed that the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 would ship by Nov. 27, an estimate that turned out to almost accurate.
Verizon promised Wedneday that customers who pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 through the carrier will receive an email alert when their device has shipped.

Galaxy Note 2: 5 million served
Verizon's Galaxy Note 2 is available in "marble white" or "titanium grey" for $299.99 with a two-year contract from the carrier.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has been dubbed a "phablet" (why not "tablone?") due to its massive, gorgeous 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display.
The Note 2 has also earned recognition for its advanced and responsive S-Pen stylus.
So far 5 million Galaxy Note 2s have been sold worldwide, with 2 million of those sales taking place between the end of October and the end of November.
That's just further proof that Samsung has been killing it lately - not that any was needed, since the Galaxy S3 recently hit the 30 million sales milestone.
Haters gonna hate
Verizon customers looking forward to the Galaxy Note 2 beware: the carrier has shamelessly stamped its logo in multiple places on the smartphone, including directly over the otherwise unadorned home button.
Verizon may be releasing the Galaxy Note 2 at the perfect time, though, as the phablet recently garnered some publicity when it was featured front-and-center at the American Music Awards.
Whether that publicity will translate to sales remains to be seen.
