Put this under the ‘No one gives a damn category’. Samsung and Verizon today have unveiled the developer edition of the Galaxy Note 2 for the big Red network. Compared to the normal Galaxy Note 2 that is already selling on the big red’s network for the last few weeks, the “Developer Edition” only features an unlocked bootloader.
Apart from this, the “Developer Edition” packs the same specs as the normal version, which means that potential buyers would still get the same quad-core 1.6GHz Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, S-Pen, a mammoth 5.5-inch 720p Super-AMOLED HD screen, and Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.
The “Developer Edition” is aimed at..well..developers who are interested in tinkering around with their devices. The normal Galaxy Note 2 comes with a locked down bootloader that makes it tough for developers to tinker around with. The “Developer Edition” Galaxy Note 2 needs to be purchased at its full retail price directly from Verizon without any contract and it does not come with any warranty, which does not really make it that much more attractive, especially considering that the Galaxy Note 2 bootloader was just unlocked last week.
