If you've been thinking about making the move to the phablet world, but don't want to spend $299 on the Galaxy Note 3, you can pick up the Sprint Galaxy Note 2 for $99.99.

Samsung deserves credit for making phablets mainstream. When critics said the original Galaxy Note was too large for consumers and predicted weak sales, Samsung proved them wrong and sold millions of the first-generation Note. It later followed up with the Galaxy Note 2, which proved to be an even bigger success than the original phablet. Now the company just launched the Galaxy Note 3, which will go on sale in October for $299.99.

If you don't want to spend $300 on the Galaxy Note 3, but want most of its functionality and features, Amazon is offering the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for $99.99 when signing a new 2-year contract.

The Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 2 features a 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED Plus display with a 1280 x 720 resolution and a pixel density of 267 pixels per inch (ppi). It currently runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but is upgradable out of the box to Android 4.1.2 and is expected to receive an over the air (OTA) update to Android 4.3. The device is powered by a 1.6 GHz Samsung Exynos quad-core processor and includes 16GB of internal storage, as well as 2GB of RAM.

It packs an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and HD recording and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. The phablet includes enhanced S Pen functionality and allows you to use the stylus to write in a more natural way. Its wireless capabilities include a 4G LTE radio, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC, and built-in mobile hotspot functionality. Users will be able to add even more memory by using its microSD expansion slot, which supports up to 64GB microSD cards. The phablet packs a removable 3,100 mAh battery.

Amazon is offering the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for $99.99 when signing a new 2-year contract. The retailer is also throwing in free two-day shipping with the order.
