Today at CES, Samsung Mobile and AT&T surprised us with not only a phone that is being referred to as a phablet (phone/tablet) due to it’s 5.3” HD Super AMOLED screen size. That it also will be available in carbon blue and ceramic white. Normally Android users don’t get a color option when it comes to new devices, so to hear about this was a real treat!
This device running Android 2.3 will come equipped with a S Pen™ aka a stylus. This pen delivers fast, responsive and precise control to create fine lines and detail on the device display. It is so precise that it’s being compared to actually using an ink pen and a pad of paper.
A 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB onboard memory, a 8MP rear and 2MP facing camera are a few features of this new gadget. Check out the detail below for more specifications.
The high resolution display ensures that documents, presentations, web-pages, news apps and e-books can be viewed comfortably with minimal scrolling or zooming. Samsung has also included a smart professional planning tool that makes full use of the device’s large screen. The calendar integrates the phone’s to-do list and schedule; control and navigation is intuitive, helping users to comprehensively organize their lives.
Capture, Create & Share
The Galaxy Note features S Memo™, a multimedia application designed to capture all forms of user-created content captured by the S Pen. Pictures, voice recordings, typed text, handwritten notes or drawings can all be combined via a single application, converted to a ‘memo’, and shared as desired.
An easy screen-capture function also allows users to instantly save any screen, then these screens can also be personalized with the S Pen before being saved or shared.
Superior Usability, Powerful Performance
The 1.5GHz dual-core processor ensures the device is incredibly fast and a smooth user interface ensures seamless usability. Lightning fast network speeds on AT&T’s 4G LTE allows for the device’s super-fast connection, ensuring a quick and seamless browsing experience.
The Galaxy Note has met extra rigorous security criteria to be categorized as a “Samsung Approved for Enterprise” or SAFE™ device. The addition of SAFE certifications ensures that any organization’s mobile work force can be remotely managed and securely connected to corporate applications and data while away from their desks.
The SAFE program is comprised of multiple components that outline Samsung’s business-to-business foundations for its mobile devices. These “pillars” of SAFE are designed to offer customers essential enterprise functionality and security and include: Mobile Device Management, On-Device Virtual Private Network (VPN) and secure access to Corporate Email/Calendar/Contacts.
The Galaxy Note is outfitted with a premium accessories portfolio designed to highlight the product features and device functionality. Docking solutions include a Desktop Dock to get the most out of your Galaxy Note at home, while the Spare Battery Charging System allows for a convenient backup charging solution. Galaxy Note owners can also customize the Galaxy Note to fit their personal style with a protective Flip Cover Case, available in multiple colors.
Additionally, the Galaxy Note S Pen Holder Kit offers a solution for users in need of a more traditional writing instrument. With a spare S Pen included, the S Pen Holder secures the navigation tool inside and offers a comfortable grip and allows for more detailed use.
The Galaxy Note is also compatible with the following universal accessories: Micro USB Adapter, HDTV Smart Adapter, Car Power Charger W/ Detachable Data Cable (Micro USB), Micro USB Data Cable, Travel Charger (Detachable W/ USB to Micro USB Cable), and the premium Refined Sound wired headset.
