14 November 2011 - Bridging the gap between phone and tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note is a 5.3-inch device that blurs the line between the two gadgets. Kwon Jae Hoon, Managing Director, Samsung Malaysia Electronics, puts it eloquently as such, “The Samsung GALAXY Note infuses artistic freedom of a paper notebook with state-of-the-art technology and services you can find in a Samsung’s smartphone, thus allowing users to freely create, edit and share their ideas. It is truly a ground-breaking technology, beautifully presented in a sleek and wonderful device.”
The device sports a 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED display, and despite its size, the Samsung Galaxy Note is only 9.65mm thick and a weighs a decent 178 grams. Running on the latest Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), it comes with a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and is LTE and HSPA+ enabled.
As with other devices in the Galaxy lineup, the Gingerbread-enhanced Samsung Galaxy Note comes skinned with TouchWiz on top, allowing for a total of seven home screens, and an interface known as 'S Pen', which when used in tandem with the stylus, allows users access to the S Planner and S Memo – the S Planner is a native calendar and to-do list app, from which users can drag and drop appointments and change time slots without having to open an entry. The S Memo on the other hand, is used for note-taking and accepts voice, photo, text and handwritten input.
To top it off, the Samsung Galaxy Note features a dual 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel camera that is capable of recording videos at full HD 1080p. Best of all, the device will boast a whooping 2500mAh battery that promises usage longevity like never before.
The Samsung Galaxy Note will be priced in Malaysia for RM 2,299 and is available now.
