Samsung Galaxy Note Being Cleared Ahead Of Galaxy S3 Launch?

Amazon has discounted the Galaxy Note to just over £400, leaving us to believe that Samsung is getting ready for the new Galaxy S3 by clearing out existing stocks of that phone and the Galaxy Nexus both of which can be found for around £400 and are superior to the Galaxy S2 - which costs just under £400.

The SIM-free phone - which retails for £408 at Amazon - comes with a free 360 Mobile one month pre-paid SIM card. It packs a massive 5.29-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1,280 by 800 pixels resolution and Pentile technology, one which matches the likes of the much bigger Galaxy Tab 10.1.

There's a dual core processor clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a massive 2500mAh battery, an eight megapixel camera plus a front facing one, a capacitive stylus plus a slew of Enterprise features like hardware encryption, Microsoft Exchange Activesync, Cisco WebEx, Anyconnect compatibility and more.

The phone runs on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread with Samsung's own TouchWiz user interface on top. It does however have a clear path to Ice Cream Sandwich
