Part-tablet, part-smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note is all brilliant.
The Android-powered Galaxy Note teams the portability of a smartphone with the larger screen dimensions of a tablet. With a 5.3-inch, impossibly vibrant SuperAMOLED display, tons of apps, stylus control and much, more more, it's got everything you need.
Vibrant displays are a hallmark of the best Galaxy phones. And the Galaxy Note is no exception, thanks to a screen that features cutting-edge Super AMOLED technology and delivers pin-sharp images and graphics. Fashioned from robust Gorilla Glass, it's also tough enough to take a knocking and keep on rocking.
Better still, because the Note's screen is a whopping 5.3-inches it's perfect for the kind of functions you'd ordinarily have to buy a dedicated tablet for. Not least thanks to its note taking application that records drawings, text, pictures you input with the stylus included. And it's even capable of converting voice recordings - making the Note a brilliant business tool.
What's more, because the Note is powered by Android it's fantastic for apps. Just take yourself to the Android Market and you'll have a choice of hundreds of thousands of titles, including practical tools and fun games. You'll also get some terrific Google apps pre-installed to get you started.
And the Note is no slouch as a cameraphone either. The on board eight megapixel camera with LED flash, face and smile detection and autofocus is terrific for capturing life's spontaneous moments and records 1080p@30fps too. Plus there's a secondary two megapixel camera at the front too for video calling.
Other features of the Galaxy Note include expandable memory of up to 32GB via microSD card support to give you ample room for music, movies and apps, a document editor (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF) for when you're working on the move, a media player, web browser and push email. You'll also get Google Maps pre-installed, which combines with a digital compass and GPS support to make the Galaxy Note a great route-finding device.
