Samsung takes a note

Consumer electronics giant Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note, which bridges the world of the mobile phone and tablet with its 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display and 9.65mm thick case.

The Samsung Galaxy Note was launched at Berlin’s IFA consumer electronics event, whilst following in the same lines as the Dell Streak tablet – only with a pen interface, for drawing on the screen.

This is combined with the market’s largest HD Super AMOLED display, with the S Pen, where consumers are able to freely capture and create ideas on the largest screen seen in a mobile phone with 180-degree viewing angle.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note arrives with a Super AMOLED 5.3-inch 1280x800 285ppi display, with a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, 16 or 32GB of internal memory and support for 32GB microSD cards, with a front-facing 2 megapixel camera and a rear-facing 8MP variant.

This tablet also has HSPA+ 21Mbps and WIFI capabilities, with the over the air Samsung Kies, running from the Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 OS and the TouchWiz UI plus the ChatON mobile communication service from Samsung.

No prices have been announced as yet to the Samsung Galaxy Note, although there’s a video that highlights the features of the device and can be seen below.
