Price Of Samsung Galaxy Note Dropped To £390

The Galaxy Note is now available from Amazon for less than £400. Prepaywizard is selling the phone tablet (or phablet) for only £389.95, a mere £20 more than the Samsung Galaxy S2.

The price cut comes ahead of the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S3 next week, which will push the Galaxy S2, the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy Nexus into mainstream territory. Given that the phone was originally on sale for nearly £600, it is indeed surprising to see that it now costs less than the two year old iPhone 4.

The phone is SIM free and unlocked and packs a dual core processor clocked at 1.4Ghz, a 5.29in 1,280 x 800 pixels Super AMOLED HD screen, a capacitive stylus pen called the S pen, an eight megapixel camera with full HD recording, a 2500mAh battery, Wi-Fi, microUSB, Bluetooth, a front facing camera, 16GB onboard storage, 1GB RAM and support for up to 64GB microSD cards which means that you can up its onboard capacity to 80GB.

Note that Amazon is selling the Dark Blue version of the handset. The N7000 runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread but will be upgradable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich by the end of the year.
