Not surprisingly, it seems there is no limit to how big displays for our mobile devices can get. Enter the Samsung Galaxy Note, a massively proportioned 5.3 inch smartphone/mini-tablet, with specs to die for. When is it coming? How much will it cost? Why do you want it? It is set to arrive in the UK on November 1st, and will be heading to Asia shortly thereafter, and from the there, it should arrive in the US in time for the holidays. What makes this device special is the following:

  • 5.3″ HD Super AMOLED touchscreen WXGA (1280×800, 285ppi)
  • powered by a 1.4 Ghz dual core Exynos processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • Stylus support
  • Massive 2500 mAh battery

What is that tiny device next to the Galaxy Note?

What is that tiny device next to the Galaxy Note?

The Galaxy Note features the same display that is in the Galaxy Nexus, albeit a super-sized one. With its Super AMOLED display, everything is extremely bright and colors literally pop off the screen. Such is the experience with said displays, and consumers can’t seem to get enough. As it is currently the largest display ever put on a mobile device designed to be a smartphone, it’s likely to have as many lovers as it does haters, but folks – that’ the beauty of Android – anything goes!

Furthermore, The Galaxy Note comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board, and features the same 8MP camera with LED flash that is on the Galaxy S2, which takes excellent pictures and video. On front, ,there’s a 2MP camera for (narcissistic self portraits) video chat. Do you want? We certainly do.

Where to buy

Today, the Samsung Galaxy Note has just appeared on’s site, for the jaw dropping price of $899.99. Yes it’s a significant sum of money to pay – but judging from the demand for premium electronics these days – some will be happy to pay it. Realistically, once it goes on sale officially in the UK on November 1st, it will go down in price much closer to the $699.99 area.

Excited? What’s the perfect price for the Galaxy Note? We’ll be doing a full hands on video and review in the following week – so stay tuned!  Do you want?
