The Samsung Galaxy Note is not a tablet and neither is it a smartphone, but it’s a smart touchscreen gadget which embodies smartphone and tablet features — with an artistic touch. Samsung states it’s “a new category of product”. Among other functions, it makes calls and plays games, music and videos.
The Galaxy Note is smaller than its sibling the Galaxy Tablet and slightly larger than Samsung’s high-end smartphone, Galaxy S II. The Galaxy Note, which runs the Android 2.3 Gingerbread Operating System and a 1.4GHz dual processor, has a 5,3-inch (13,4cm) Super HD Amoled touchscreen which displays 720p high-definition quality images.
It comes with a companion, the S Pen, a stylus the size of a thin pen, which is handy for taking notes, drawing or editing images on the touchscreen. One can also use the touch qwerty keyboard to take notes.
On its back is an impressive 8MP camera with a flashlight; and because it supports Cisco’s WebEX on-line conferencing app, you can use the 2MP front camera for video conferencing.
Business users will appreciate Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync support, which will sync e-mail between the Note and your computer.
So, what is the price of a notepad, a mini-computer, a smartphone and a tablet all in one? Expect to find a tag ranging from R8500 to R9000 attached to the Galaxy Note.
