James tweeted from his @KingJames account a picture of his custom Galaxy Note II with the simple message: "I got mine first."
The smartphone-tablet hybrid, or phablet, is being sold by U.S. carriers for $300 with a two-year contract, with Sprint taking the lead by starting sales today, Oct. 25. AT&T and Verizon start sales in November, and it's not clear yet when T-Mobile will start selling the Android 4.1 device, which boasts a 5.5-inch screen and that first became available in South Korea. Galaxy Note II has a quad-core 1.6GHz processor.
James isn't the only big shot promoting the Galaxy Note II. Samsung had singer Kanye West perform at its New York City press event for the product.
