Are they any good?
Do they live up to the hype?
Where is the cheapest place to get an unlocked phone

In a similar vein I am looking at this phone but I have a particular niche use and I was wondering if anyone could comment about suitability.
I commute and I want to work more easily than I do now. Currently I use my laptop and tether through my android phone (barnacle). However, it is often annoying to try and use my laptop (it can be cramped, takes a while to boot, battery life, etc, etc) but I don't want to add complexity to my life by carrying my laptop, a phone and a tablet. So the Note sounds appealing. However my biggest need is to be able to open word documents and pdfs and to review them, making changes to the text and crucially adding reviewer comments/notes. I am happy to do this via handwriting or text typing, whichever is faster. How realistic is it to use the Note for this?
Anyone know where I can get a hands-on in London?
There are a number of office suites compatible with the Note but it comes with Polaris built in and I have to say is one of the best to do what you are seeking. There is also an app available through Samsung App Store that allows annotation to PDF files using the S-Pen.
With it's large screen, it does make it easy to work on than a phone. Obviously a laptop is better but as you point out it isn't so portable.
I think Carphone Warehouse is your best bet to see one in action.
