Samsung Galaxy Note

First of all, before I begin anything, I would like to give my props to Androidguys.com for the photo above. I was looking at this phone to upgrade to when I I finally upgrade from my Motorola Defy, which is still in pretty good condition. Nothing is wrong with it but if push comes to shove, I am looking at something like this. Its a cross between a smartphone and a tablet. Its a bit unwieldy but I like the large screen real estate.

In any case, according to Samsung:

GALAXY Note is a new type of smartphone, borne of insight and innovation. It is the ultimate on-the-go device which consolidates core benefits of diverse mobile devices while maintaining smartphone portability. Equipped with a 5.3″ large HD SUPER AMOLED screen, it minimizes your screen transition and scrolling with the embedded S Pen for convenience during operation. To do all this, consumers need to carry multiple devices as each device has unique benefits that work best in different situations. Therefore, consumers constantly need to switch between devices. Even for consumers with multiple smart devices, they still carry around a notepad for writing down ideas. There is an emerging desire for a primary device for on-the-go use that could consolidate the core tasks of multiple devices as well as recreate the ease and simplicity of using a pen and paper. The GALAXY Note is a primary device that will minimise the need to switch to other devices while on-the-go and open up the potential of your mobile experience.

It sure has. Imagine looking at your emails and other stuff. It just looks marvellous. But I suppose its biggest selling point is also its bugbear…the size. I know I cannot put this in my pocket! It is gonna bulge out like crazy. Specs-wise, from Samsung’s website:
