We've seen a lot of news surrounding Samsung's Galaxy Note II in the past 24 hours, from T-Mobile's official launch all the way down to Lebron James' custom Note II cover. We've got one more piece of news before the day's done though – pre-orders for the Note II's AT&T and Verizon variants have just gone live.

Those looking to grab the AT&T-connected Note II will need to shell out an unsurprising $299.99 with 2-year activation, and can expect their devices to ship out on November 6th, just in time for the network's November 9th launch date.

We've been patiently waiting for US carriers to start announcing the availability of their respective Galaxy Note II variants. While Sprint was the first to step up to the plate, AT&T has now committed to something that you can pencil in on your calendar: pre-orders begin on October 25th, with November 9th as the confirmed launch date.

Much like the other variants that we already know about, AT&T's Note II will hit the wallet fairly hard at $300, which is of course the subsidized price and requires a two-year agreement.

This morning, AT&T VP Brad Burns released a statement regarding the upcoming Softbank purchase of Sprint, and it carefully treads the line between "passive aggressive displeasure" and "seriously FCC, if this goes through, we're buying like a million carriers":

Softbank's acquisition of Sprint and the control it gains over Clearwire will give one of Japan's largest wireless companies control of significantly more U.S. wireless spectrum than any other company. We expect that fact and others will be fully explored in the regulatory review process.

When it comes to the newest generation of phones, "budget" is closer to "flagship" than ever before. Two months ago, I reviewed the free-on-contract Pantech Marauder and came away highly impressed. Ron, too, reviewed the $100 Motorola Razr M and said "This is what budget phones are like now? Where do I sign up?" The old budget formula of taking last-gen hardware and slapping it in a cheap chassis has given way to current-gen hardware in a better chassis - not to mention that the optimizations and polish of Android 4.0 make the experience better than ever on virtually any level of hardware.

Back in late September, Motorola updated its ICS rollout timeline, highlighting that several updates had been delayed, one of which was the Atrix 2. Then, much to the surprise of basically everyone, Moto released details and a soak test of the Atrix 2's Android 4.0 update just three days later. Silly Moto.

According to the official AT&T blog, the update is ready for that masses and should be rolling out to users now.

There are two types of people in this world: those who stick with the same carrier for decades at a time, and those who jump from one to another in order get the best phones. If you fall into the latter category, now may be the time to head over to AT&T, because the HTC One X just dropped to a penny at Amazon Wireless.

Sure, HTC may have already announced the One X+ with AT&T as its exclusive provider here in the States, but that doesn't take away from what a solid device the original One X is right now.

Thinking of getting a new phone on AT&T just to see what it's all about? If you don't dig it, you have a month to return it, right? Unfortunately... no. Not after tomorrow, anyway; AT&T is dropping its device return policy from 30 days to 14, basically cutting the return window in half.

So what happens if you want return your device after the 14 day window? You'll owe AT&T a full ETF (early termination fee) for your remaining contract (read: all of it).

The Galaxy Camera, which Samsung initially unveiled in Berlin back in August, is now confirmed to be on its way to AT&T. Unfortunately, the carrier hasn't offered up any details on when it will arrive or how much it will cost. The camera is no slouch, with a 4.7" 308ppi display, a quad-core processor, 4G connectivity, and, of course, a giant camera. That kind of hardware doesn't come cheap.

There's also the issue of data plan connectivity.

Well, the long-awaited (and rumored) HTC One X+ is official. HTC took the wraps off this not-so-secret handset earlier this morning, stating that it would be available in several different regions. Now, AT&T has announced that it will be the exclusive carrier of the device here in the US, and it will hit stores "in the coming months."

For those who may not have caught the news this morning, the One X+ is essentially the same as its predecessor on the outside, but is an entirely different beast on the inside:

  • 4.7" 1280x720 display
  • 1.7GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 64GB internal storage
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.6MP front camera
  • LTE
  • 2100mAh battery
  • Android 4.1 with Sense 4+

Also announced by AT&T today is the HTC One VX, a nice mid-range smartphone with decent specs:

  • 4.5" qHD Super LCD2
  • 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB storage, microSD card slot
  • 5MP rear shooter, VGA front camera
  • Android 4.0 (will be upgraded to 4.1 "shortly after launch")

Much like the One X+, there's no certain date when the VX will be released.

The Atrix HD is probably the best Motorola smartphone on AT&T right now. If you happen to fancy Moto's hardware and are in the market for a new phone on Big Blue, you're in luck: it's now basically free from Amazon Wireless for new contract and upgrading customers.

Specs:

  • 4.5" ColorBoost display with Gorilla Glass
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, 2MP front camera
  • Android 4.0

This deal is good for both the white and black versions of the device, so pick your favorite, hit the appropriate link below, and enjoy your new phone.
