The rather handsome white edition of the Samsung Galaxy Note is available now, as Sammy’s half-tablet-half-smartphone surprise success story continues to defy claims it would struggle to appeal beyond a niche, techy audience.
The white re-spray of the phone is exclusive to the John Lewis in London’s Oxford Street initially, with the first 250 units bundled with a natty package of media content worth £250.
A more extensive release of the phone, whose centrepiece is a whopping 5.3-inch screen that some claim takes it into Trigger Happy TV-territory, is due in February, according to Pocket-Lint.
Also on board the handset is an eight-megapixel camera, a secondary two-megapixel snapper for video calls, Android 2.3 out of the box and a 1.4GHz dual core processor.
And distinguishing the Note from the smartphone rivals is stylus support for sketching and easy note-taking, meaning it effectively doubles as an old-fashioned Notebook.
At the time of writing, John Lewis had yet to release the price of the handset. However, going by the standard edition, you’re looking at an outlay of around £430.
