Phablet. Phoneblet. Taphoneblet. Whatever it is, it certainly is something. Have you ever owned a tablet? How about a smartphone? Now, ask yourself – which one do you prefer? Truth is, the smartphone is as good as it gets. You certainly can’t bring your tablet everywhere, can you? Your smartphone though, on the other hand, goes everywhere with you like it’s attached to your body.
Anyway, I just thought you might all appreciate knowing that the Galaxy Note is on sale at Amazon for only $249.99. Not too shabby!
And, for those of you that don’t know, this device is absolutely epic. Here’s the specs:
5.3″ 800 x 1280 HD super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass
1GB of RAM
1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor
16GB of internal memory, expandable via microSD
8MP camera with 1080p HD video capability
2MP front-facing camera
802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
2,500 mAh battery
Android 2.3.6 with Samsung’s latest TouchWiz UX
There’s no doubt about it – if you are craving the best of both worlds, and want to have a device with tablet-like functionality, but still retain the portability of your smartphone, then look no further. Plus, with the stylus, who knows what you can do. Small phone lovers need not apply. Plus, this particularly sweet deal from Amazon is $50 less than you can find anywhere.
If you’re still not sold, then check out our review of the Galaxy Note! It’s for the International version, but the two are virtually identical, aside from the CPU and the GPS system. Our verdict? Big thumbs up.
