As if you weren’t convinced that Samsung’s almost-certainly-gigantic Galaxy Note was coming to AT&T, well… good luck refuting this. Just a day after an accessory vendor seemingly outed the truth,PocketNow has stumbled upon what appears to be the first legitimate press images for the Gingerbread-based handset. It’s going by SGH-I717 internally, and it’ll purportedly boast a 5.3-inch display (1,280 x 800), a 1.4GHz Exynos processor and a promise to get its user all kinds of stares. As for a release date? Betters might place a few bills on Valentine’s Day — we’ll let you peer some more and ponder why.
We’ll need to wait for the company’s earnings later this month for the final numbers, but Motorola has now provided some preliminary results for the fourth quarter of 2011 that indicate smartphones accounted for more than fifty percent of all the mobiles devices it shipped. Specifically, Motorola estimates that it shipped a total of 10.5 million devices in the quarter, 5.3 million of which are smartphones (there’s no further breakdown beyond that). That’s up from 4.8 million smartphones in the previous quarter, although the number of total mobile devices slipped from 11.6 million. The company also says it expects "modest profitability" with estimated sales of $3.4 billion for the quarter, and it reaffirmed that it expects Google’s $12.5 billion acquisition to close in "early 2012" if all goes as planned. Head on past the break for the press release.
