It'll proablably be a couple of hundred bucks less if the 5.3", 1280x800, dual core Note makes its way to the US but at say $700-800, that's a lot. I don't see a lot of carriers would be interested in this. The market for this would be even less.
It makes sense if Samsung can release the note as a Wi-Fi only version. Price it for around $300, I think there could be a lot of interested parties. I know I would be one of them.
