There is a thin line between a smartphone and a tablet and Samsung Galaxy Note has crossed it.

Samsung  after it’s huge success with  Android smartphones  has now launched yet another addition to it’s showcase.  Samsung Galaxy Note, a smart mobile handset with a combination of smartphone functionality along with a tablet viewing experience. You no longer required to carry any other devices like mobile, tablet PC, digital camera, pen, notepad & other stationary stuff if you have Samsung Galaxy Note in hand.


The new flagship phone from Samsung features:

  • 5.3-inch,  1280 x 800 WXGA, Super AMOLED HD display
  • 1.4 GHz Exynos Dual-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 and 2 megapixel rear and front facing cameras with HD 1080p Video recording

It has an internal memory of 16GB/32GB (two different variants) and in addition it supports an external memory card of upto 32GB.

Samsung Galaxy Note runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has the  proprietary TouchWiz interface from Samsung.  Samsung has gone all out by including a suite a apps designed specifically to work with the stylus. Galaxy Note also ports a S-pen(stylus) which is used to capture, crop & annotate. For example, you can draw pictures,  create presentations  and many more using the S pen.
S Memo allows users to take notes and record audio at the same time while S Planner is a hybrid calendar and to-do list with some advanced functionality.
