Proving once again that it has no shame, Verizon introduced its variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (SGN2) today with its logo on the home button.
While not a deal breaker the button branding is tacky and the fact that none of the other carriers felt it necessary to do something similar says a lot.
The official Galaxy Note 2 press conference is this evening and launch details are expected to be announced then. Look for the Verizon SGN2 to be released on November 15th with a $299.99 on contract price.
It looks now like the official release date for Verizon will be Thursday, November 29th. That's a full month later than T-Mobile and Sprint, and over two weeks later than AT&T. The reasoning for the delay is unknown, but it's probably to give the RAZR HD/MAXX HD more time on the market without major competition.
The good news is this gives those that pre-ordered plenty of time to cancel their orders if the HTC DNA or LG Nexus 4 end up being better options, or if they finally decide to leave Verizon because they're sick of being treated like second class citizens.
