Samsung Galaxy Note: Neither a Phone nor a Tablet

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.

We’ll let you know as soon as this beast is available in the market. Until then answer this riddle. What has a 5.3 inch display, is not a tablet, can place calls, but again, it can’t be called a phone. Don’t think so hard!!

Sony Announces Reader Wi-Fi, Enters E-Reader Arena

Sony recently unveiled it’s first tablets, code-named S1 and S2, which were launched earlier today at IFA. Along with that, they also. to everyone’s surprise, announced a Sony E-book Reader to compete with the likes of Kindle and Nook Color. The Reader Wi-fi from Sony, as it’s known, has been credited as the lightest e-book reader on the planet running on the Android operating system.

That’s not the only thing that would make you buy one, as it also looks magnificently beautiful and has a multi-touch screen. And although, it’s only 6 inches in size with E-Ink Pearl display and not a color one, it’s still quite a gadget. Basically, the function of an e-book reader is to open PDF files and replace your regular fat and allergy causing paper books.

Reader Wi-Fi handles a wide range of digital formats, including the popular EPUB eBook standard plus PDF and TXT documents. View your collection of digital photos on screen, or plug in a pair of headphones and listen to stored music tracks while you’re reading. The front cover image of your current title or a favourite photo can be displayed as a screensaver when Reader is in standby.

Speaking of PDF files, the Reader Wi-Fi can connect to any public library in US, UK or Canada that has an e-book collection and download them for free. There’s inbuilt storage of 1.3GB to store that Harry Potter collection, which can be expanded to 32GB via a microSD card. The battery is just like other e-book readers, 2-3 weeks with Wi-Fi and 3-4 weeks without Wi-Fi depending on how much of an e-book reader you are.

You can expect this, if you’re in the US or Europe, some time in October for a decent price of $149. And yes, it comes in black, white and red, for all those who want to look a little cool while reading an e-book.
