iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Samsung Galaxy Note Available From £30.64

T-Mobile has put another promising smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note, on preorder for £30.64 per month on a two year contract with a £49.99 upfront cost.

As with the Galaxy Nexus deal we previously reported about, this one is available from BuyMobilePhones and comes with the same allowance (900 minutes, 500 texts, 500MB data, unlimited web and email access).

The Galaxy Note has the biggest screen on the market at 5.3 inches (bigger than the Dell Streak) and Samsung has painstakingly worked towards reducing the thickness of the surrounding bezel.

The phone comes with a dual core SoC clocked at 1.4GHz (almost certainly a new Exynos SoC), 1GB RAM, an HD Super AMOLED display with a 1280x800 pixel resolution (higher than other HD displays) with Gorilla glass on top, an eight megapixel camera and a stylus pen that allows users to jot down notes quickly.

Surprisingly, it comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but we suspect that an Ice Cream Sandwich update is not far too far off.

There are a few notable differences between the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Nexus S; the screen size, the resolution, the processor speed, the fact that the Note comes with a stylus and a microSD card slot.
