I actually got to play with the Galaxy Note a couple of times thanks to Art Samaniego of Manila Bulletin. I had my apprehensions when it was first announced with a 5.3″ display and a stylus. Immediate comparisons with the Dell Streak and innuendos immediately started. However, after holding the device itself and playing around with it, I was pretty impressed. The size is still a concern especially for those with smaller hands but the stylus was a non-issue since it is optional when using the Galaxy Note.
Now, Samsung is starting hype for the device as it is starting pre-orders for the Galaxy Note on its website starting, well, today. Just register on their site and you can get as much as PhP2,000 off from the SRP plus a few freebies including a flip cover and a free 45-day subscription to the Philippine Daily Inquirer. For those of you planning to get a Smart Plan, you can get the Galaxy Note free with Plan 2000 and get the first month free as well as a flip cover.
Samsung, one of this generation’s leading pioneers in technology, has come up with its most revolutionary product to date as it announces yet another amazing addition to its Galaxy series—the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Fully equipped to change the face of communication as we know it today, it is the perfect hybrid of an immensely powerful tablet and a conveniently portable smart phone in one super-device. Punctuated by the introduction of the S Pen, Samsung’s newest advancement in pen-input technology, the Galaxy Note enhances your mobile experience with stunning visuals, creative edge, and productive features.
To ensure optimum efficiency, the Galaxy Note runs on a 1.4GHz dual-core processor while the HSPA+ enables speedy network connections for smooth operation. Its larger-than-life 5.3” HD Super AMOLED full touch screen is the first among smart phones around the world, featuring a high resolution display perfect for taking photos with the 8-megapixel camera, watching HD videos, browsing the Internet, and multi-tasking with several apps on a split screen! The most note-worthy amongst all of its features, however, is really the S Pen. The Galaxy Note brings creativity and productivity to a new horizon with this ground-breaking innovation. It accurately digitizes sketches and artworks while handwritten texts are automatically converted to digital characters through superior handwriting recognition. Coupled with an expansive screen, the S Pen presents immeasurable possibilities—from capturing big ideas, designing the next big thing, even crafting the next Picassos!
With the 1.4GHz dual core processor, HSPA+ internet speeds, the HD Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel camera, and especially the S Pen, the Samsung Galaxy Note truly lives up to being the very first tablet-cum-smartphone in the market!
