When Samsung first revealed the Galaxy Note at the IFA trade show in Berlin last year in our initial hands-on we referred to it as ’a tab-phone, a back-from-the-dead PDA or a digital etch-a-sketch?’
In reality it’s all of those things. The Samsung Galaxy Note is a phone for making calls, it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with access to email and calendar for organising the finite details of your life and it comes with a stylus. Except Samsung doesn’t want you to call it a stylus; instead it’s an S-Pen, which can be used for taking screenshots, making notes and drawings on the Samsung Galaxy Note’s huge screen.
Yes, the screen. The crowning glory of the Samsung Galaxy Note is the 5.3-inch screen, which is a generous size for browsing the internet and checking out pictures taken using the 8-megapixel camera, while Super AMOLED technology ensure a great contrast for playing back movies.
