The launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Note takes place November, 2011, a new version powered by Android 2.3 with Samsung’s TouchWiz 4.0 user interface. With its 5.3-inch size and it’s unusually large screen size, it is part smartphone, part tablet.
The HD quality screen can be operated by S Pen stylus or by touch and, despite its size, has a high pixel density of 285 pixels-per-inch making it one of the clearest screens you can read. The screen uses Super AMOLED which allows for brighter visuals and colours as well as more efficient power.
There are plenty of features including the memo feature which, when the screen is tapped will bring up a notepad where you can write reminders directly onto the screen and save. The note can be opened over any app that may also be open.
This feature is particularly useful for business users. There is an improved web browser feature allowing you to view full web pages. It contains 1GHz of RAM and is faster than the Galaxy Nexus with a 1.4GHz processor.
Two versions will be offered: one with 16GB and one with 32GB storage and a memory card featuring 2GB of storage is included with either. Also included is a 2 megapixel front facing camera and an 8 megapixel back facing camera. Video can be shot also at 1080p.
The Galaxy Note is perhaps a little big for recreational use, but will certainly benefit business users who require lots of screen space and plenty of features.
