When Does a Mobile Phone Size Make it a Tablet ?
Launched in September 2011, many have yet to see this unique new powerhouse phone from Samsung,
About the same thickness and weight of the new iPhone 4S , but much bigger, with a spectacular quality screen, and specifications, the 1.4GHZ, Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000, is the first 5.3 in. mobile launched with mixed coverage and a bit ahead of its time.
This was partly due to the patent war between Apple and Samsung.
The result of this saw Samsung announcing, then removing than relaunching the Galaxy Note the from sale in different parts of the world.
Similar to many other Samsung phones like the S2, all but larger. This phone has a removable huge capacity 2500mAH battery
Warning: This is a little confusing as Samsung is known to do , there are now 2 models of the Galaxy Note, first announced during IFA 2011 in Berlin in September 2011,
It was released to the public starting with Germany in late October 2011, with other countries following shortly after that. On 18th November 2011, Samsung announced GT-N7003, a cheaper variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8255T ,a single core processor compared to GT-N7000 which is running Samsung Exynos 4210, a dual-core processor 1.4GHZ.
One of the great accessories for the Galaxy Note is that there are metal and different coloured back panels for the Galaxy Note if you prefer to avoid the standard plastic feel of this device, but will add more weight.
It will be especially interesting to see what the Android OS (IceCream Sandwich) looks like on this device
The Galaxy Note is Available Globally, and in Australia from Mobi City (online), Expansys, and Oz Digital (online and in Sydney, NSW) for around $770.
