We received a tip from an Ausdroid reader letting us know that Allphones stores have begun to receive plastic dummy units of the Samsung Galaxy Note II. These units should be on display in stores today, so you can pick one up and get a feel for the size and shape of the device.
Notably, the device is yet to appear on the Allphones site, which would seem to indicate that they’re not quite ready to sell you one yet. We’re told that stock – Australian 4G units – is expected to arrive within the coming week.
If you’re thinking of buying a Galaxy Note II, you should check out our review of the device. We don’t know if Allphones will stick to Samsung’s local RRP of $899 for outright purchases or compete with online grey imported 3G and 4G units from Kogan and Mobicity.
