Talk about not knowing the difference between speed and top speed and this new device from Samsung falls under the same category. A device that’s neither a mobile phone nor a tablet device. Kind of the same situation we had with the Samsung Galaxy Tab. Samsung unveiled a new device at IFA today, the Galaxy Note, which is literally too huge to be called a phone, but it is one.
The Samsung Galaxy Note has a super huge 5.3 inch Super AMOLED display with a 1280 x 800 resolution that makes photos, notes and everything else look real good. The big screen isn’t the only thing that’s awesome with this device. The Note brings a new interface known as S Pen, that uses a Stylus to draw and store things directly from your homescreen. It’s integrated with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI and consists of apps such as a Planner, a To-Do list and Memos that can be used as a piece of paper. Also, developers can develop apps for the S Pen interface since Samsung has decided to let the SDK out.
Interesting, don’t you think? Well, for a phone with a 5.3 inch it’s just normal. Now let’s have a look at the basic specifications of the Galaxy Note. It has the similar processor as the Galaxy S II, the dual-core 1.4GHz processor and an 8 megapixel camera at the back. In spite of it’s huge size, the phone is extremely thin and considerably light as well. There’s no word on the pricing or availability yet, but Samsung is in talks with the Carriers to get it out in the open as soon as possible. We hope the same. Now, just relax and watch this video of the Samsung Galaxy Note, which should leave you with your mouth open for about 4 seconds.
