Samsung GALAXY Note – I’ve been wondering what the new device was, when Samsung was releasing a series of teaser videos about the new device. At first I thought it was a new phone (Samsung Galaxy SIII maybe?) but about half an hour ago, Samsung GALAXY Note was announced through Samsung Facebook’s live stream event.
Samsung GALAXY Note – The Idea
Well, some of us complain that browsing on our smartphones is not fun due to the small screen size on our smartphones. On the other hand, browsing on a tablet, or reading e-books is nice and all that, but it’s too big to carry around. So we often carry multiple devices around, such as our smartphones and tablets. Not to mention sometimes we carry our own traditional notepad.
So why not release something in between? Hence, the Samsung GALAXY Note.

Samsung GALAXY Note also features a “stylus” in case you need to jot down some notes with S Memo app or even draw some ideas quickly.

They also announced a couple of others, such as Samsung Wave 3 and Samsung GALAXY Tab 7.7:
What’s your take on Samsung GALAXY Note? At a glance, it looks just like a bigger Samsung GALAXY SII or a smaller GALAXY Tab. However, until we actually have the device and see some reviews, it’s too early to judge.
I’ll keep an update on this post as more official details coming through about Samsung GALAXY Note.
