90% of the time I will probably not have a SIM card in it. I will most likely use it as a general gaming device, and Android "tinkering" device. I would try to flash jelly bean onto it etc... I have very little experience with Android other than I really disliked it compared to my iPhone (I have all Apple products and favorite apps of mine just aren't on Android). The original Note is going down in price and I'm wondering/hoping if having one will satisfy my Android curiosity without sacrificing my iPhone 5. I don't have any upgrades and don't want to spend $700 on a Note 2, but $300 on last year's model is more reasonable.
