AT&T Galaxy Note LTE hits stores Feb 19 for $300

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note will hit stores from February 19 priced at $299.99 with a new, two year agreement, the carrier has announced, though online pre-order customers can get the LTE smartphone up to two days early. Officially launched at CES earlier this month, the AT&T Galaxy Note keeps the 5.3-inch 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED HD display and digital stylus of its GSM counterpart, but throws in 4G networking.

There's also an 8-megapixel main camera with 1080p Full HD video recording, and a front-facing camera for video calls. Inside lurks Qualcomm's dual-core Snapdragon 1.5GHz processor along with HSPA+ for when you're outside of AT&T's growing LTE network, plus WiFi b/g/n and GPS.

AT&T will also be offering a range of official Galaxy Note accessories with the smartphone, including the Desktop Dock, the Spare Battery Charging System and a Protective Flip Cover Case (in multiple colors including tan, black, pink, red, white and blue). There'll also be the Galaxy Note S Pen Holder Kit, making the stylus fatter and easier to hold.

Pre-orders will begin at AT&T's online store from February 5, with deliveries from February 17. That will be followed by in-store availability on February 19. The AT&T Galaxy Note will be available in carbon blue and ceramic white.
