Looks like the British will be the first to experience the smartphone/tablet features of the Samsung Galaxy Note to be released in the U.K. this November via Clove.

U.K. phone retailer Clove has recently announced that stocks of the Samsung Galaxy Note will be reaching Clove stores in an unspecified date in late November.

The estimated price will be around GBP500 (US$788), excluding VAT.

For now, Clove accepts pre-orders for the smartphone/tablet hybrid device. You can place your order without getting charged, and a confirmation will be sent before Clove dispatches your order.

Just recently unveiled at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA 2011), the Samsung Galaxy Note runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread ands bears a 1.4 GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos processor, making it the fastest phone Samsung has ever made.

It sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

The smartphone also looks like a mini tablet because of its wider 5.3-inch WXGA screen. You can enjoy the features of a smartphone and a tablet in just one device.

The phone also includes its own stylus pen. With the pen, you can do a lot of interesting stuff, such as making scribbles, drawings, and editing photos. This can also be helpful in making side notes during reports, and can be your digital pocket notebook for important notes.

The Samsung Galaxy Note can be your smartphone, tablet, notebook, planner, and game console all packed into one single device.

Is the 5.3-inch form factor too small for a tablet? Too big for a smartphone? Or do you think it’s a perfect middle ground for a smartphone that can also be a tablet?
