According to a report, Verizon Wireless, the biggest wireless carrier in the U.S, is going to pair up with what will also happen to be the biggest smart-phone in the world, Samsung's behemoth of a phone, the Galaxy Note 2.

This marks the first time that Verizon will offer a Galaxy Note device. The line of devices is fairly peculiar among smartphones, and immediately noticed for one feature – the giant 5.3” screen. In fact, some have made the facetious (or maybe not-so-facetious) remark that the Galaxy Note is not a giant smartphone, but a miniature tablet.

The newer version of the device goes a step further in this resemblance by adding 0.2” to the screen size. The Galaxy Note 2 will reportedly boast 4G LTE data, and a quad-core Exynos processor. While a quad-core processor won’t double the performance of a smartphone, as is often erroneously thought, it still isn’t a bad spec to have under your belt.

Still, Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 might have been a more logical choice for the device, as it is a more LTE friendly processor. It is also used in Samsung’s own wildly popular Galaxy S III, and other high-performance Android devices.

Verizon is known for its terrific coverage, as evidenced by their famous “Can you hear me now?” commercials. It also claims the title of “America’s Fastest 4G Network”.

While the Galaxy Note 2 will be available on all major American carriers, the pairing can appreciated: America’s biggest carrier married to an equally titanic phone.
