The Samsung Galaxy Note is an Android device with a 5.3 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a capacitive touch panel, and an active digitizer that allows you to take notes or make drawings with a digital pen. The little guy also features a 1.4 GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera, and weighs just 6 ounces.
Despite reports that the Galaxy Note might not make it to the US, this week it showed up at the FCC website. If you’re having a hard time figuring out whether to call the device a phone or a tablet, it looks like Samsung is referring to it as a “portable handset” in the FCC documents. So I guess it’s a phone.
Pahndroid also notes that the Galaxy Note appears to be designed to work with the 3G and 4G wireless networks operated by AT&T, so it looks like it may be available from that carrier soon. That doesn’t mean Samsung isn’t also shopping the Galaxy Note around to other carriers. Few device makers do as good a job as Samsung of making their phones and tablets are available from multiple major carriers.
There’s no word on the price or release date — and it’s still possible that the phone/tablet will never launch in the States. Sometimes companies pass devices through the FCC just to gain approval in case they later decide to launch a product.
I’m really looking forward to getting this device! This device is what will make me switch from iPhone to Android! My Galaxy Tab 7 was almost small enough for me to use as a phone with google voice, but alas, I need just a little smaller. This seams like it would be perfect! I’m a big guy, I need a big phone. If this does not come to the states, I’ll import and happily use it as a wifi tablet! It will fit in my Lab jacket at work so much more easily!
PLEASE BRING IT TO THE STATES, and if they dont, ill buy it out right, no contract… i willing to bet the frequency’s will work with at least 3g, maybe ill get lucky and get 4g… LTE? still to soon…..(a man can dream right) lets hope i dont have to drop 750 dollars, plus 50 for shipping, for a tabular phone.
