Samsung Galaxy Note

Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Note is headed to the US in 2012. The Note is an Android device that’s a bit of a cross between a phone and a tablet. It can make phone calls, but it has a relatively large 5.3 inch display and also comes with a digital pen for writing or drawing on the display.

Samsung has already shipped a million Galaxy Notes in Europe and Asia. It’s not clear how many customers have actually bought the device, but it’s a safe bet that Samsung wouldn’t be introducing the Note in the States if it wasn’t doing well in other markets.

The Galaxy Note has a 1280 x 800 pixel Super AMOLED display with 285 pixels per inch. It has a 1.4 GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system with Samsung’s TouchWiz software running on top, as well as custom software called S Pen which is designed to work with the stylus.

  1. TMobile – add this to your line with 4G please.

    The pen is mightier than the finger.

  2. I love my Note. It’s fast enough on H+ in Baltimore, MD (US). I will not regret getting the international version over the US version at all. Especially since there is speculation that the US version will loose the physical button, get the snapdragon processor, and get LTE on ATT. The Snapdragon is needed because of LTE, it’s much slower and LTE is going to murder that great battery life. Plus I like my physical button, makes it easier to power up.

  3. Does the stylus have special features? For example, mouse hover support for the browser. Would be better if it had Windows 8 but something like that is more than a year away. I might settle for ICS though.

    1. For me, I can’t get excited about Windows 8 on ARM since it’s too far off and there are too many unknowns like will major 3rd party software vendors target both ARM and x86.

      I’ll take a 6″ version of the Note with ICS though.
