IFA 2011 VIDEO: Samsung Galaxy Note preview

Share

Is it a smartphone? Is it a tablet? No! It’s a “Note”, according to all the Samsung reps we spoke to at IFA 2011, who were keen not to place the company’s new Android device in any standard product category.

We thought the stylus was dead, but Samsung are looking to bring it back in a big way with the Samsung Galaxy Note. Though employing an inteferace much like their Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone, a stylus can be used to navigate menus and annotate screenshots, with a button on the pen’s side to modify the input result.

As well as a digital moleskin replacement, the Galaxy Note also has plenty of regular smartphone functionality. With a large 5.3in, 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED display running from a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, you’ll also be able to make calls, download apps, snap 8MP photos and record 1080p video footage.

Expect a launch price of around £500 and a Q1 2012 street date for the Galaxy Note. Hit the video above to check it out.

  • You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  • Samsung Galaxy note is one hell of a phone. It’s the first of it’s kind from Samsung that features 720p screen resolution.
