The Galaxy Note 2 announcements just keep coming, as Sprint announced Tuesday it will step up to the plate to deliver Samsung's phablet.
Sprint will start selling the Note 2 Oct. 25 at $299 for the 16GB model on a two-year contract.
Style conscious early adopters should like they fact that they'll have a choice between the phablet in marble white or titanium gray.
The under-$300 price appears to be right around where most carriers are settling, though U.S. Cellular is differing slightly by offering the new handset for $299 after a $100 mail-in rebate.
Competitors AT&T and T-Mobile have also made their own Galaxy Note 2 announcements recently. Both carriers were oddly quiet on a specific date though, instead favoring to simply say the device will arrive "in the coming weeks."
Galaxy Note 2 debut
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is as impressive as it is large, featuring a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display making it larger than the average smartphone but smaller than a 7-inch tablet. Hence the affectionate term, "phablet."
It also comes with the Note's signature S-Pen stylus, an 8-megapixel camera and NFC connectivity.
Sprint also noted the Galaxy Note 2 is eligible for Sprint Professional Grade, which provides enhanced security and active sync capabilities to business users.
There's no pre-order for the Samasung Galaxy Note 2 with Sprint, so subscribers hoping to pick up the king-size smartphone before Halloween should mark their calendars for the Thursday before.
