Announced back in September last year, the Samsung Galaxy Note is quite a unique Samsung device since it's a mix between a smartphone and a tablet. Officially seen as a smartphone, it comes quite close to a tablet, thanks to its huge 5.3" HD Super AMOLED display. It's powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core CPU, the Galaxy Note is running on Android 2.3/Gingerbread and supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as quadband UMTS/HSDPA+/HSUPA at 850/900/1900/2100 MHz, Bluetooth 3.0+HS, WiFi b/g/n, aGPS and Russian GLONASS. It comes with a 8 megapixel autofocus camera with supporting flash LED on the back and a front-facing 2 megapixel camera for video telephony.
The Samsung Galaxy Note comes with an advanced pen-input technology, called the S Pen; it combines with Galaxy Note's full touch screen and introduces a unique user experience. Taking full advantage of the large display, Galaxy Note users are be able to multi-task, create and consume more, with fewer interruptions, while on the go. The incorporated digital S Pen can be used for accurate sketching and artwork, while superior handwriting recognition allows ideas to be freely captured and shared with other devices without the need to perform any additional digitization; handwritten text is accurately converted into digital characters.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is available with 16 GB or 32 GB internal memory, which can be expanded with microSD memory cards and measures 146.85 x 82.95 x 9.65 mm, including the 2.500 mAh Li-ion battery.
It's available since late last year across Europe and a U.S. launch is expected anytime in Q1-2012.
