The Samsung Galaxy Note, that device that has been lurking in the back of every tech junky’s mind since it was first announced, has finally been touted as available by Samsung starting with European markets. The hybrid tablet phone offers a Super AMOLED HD 5.3-inch display with a 1.4 GHz dual-core CPU under the hood for optimal use with its “many core on-the-go benefits“. Expect the availability of the device on October 29th in which it can be found on sale with various carriers in the European market. Furthermore, the device will sport Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a massive 2500 mAh battery to juice this bad boy up.
The 5.3-inch display will sport a 1280 x 800 res and there will be support for HSPA+ data speeds. Add an 8 mp rear facing camera and 2 mp front-facer and the device is unstoppable. And don’t forget the fact that Sammy is taking us back to the stylus days with the “S Pen” which will come standard on the device in a hidden storage compartment on the lower portion of the handset. There’s also functionality for taking screen shots and annotating nearly anything on any screen using S Pen shortcuts. I don’t care who you are and what you think about this massive device, this here is one sexy and functional piece of hardware. Here’s to hoping and praying with the slightest bit of faith that the device will make its way into the US without having to pay an arm and leg before unlocking it. What’s you’re take on the device? Is it too big or just right? Check out the videos of the device in action as well as some more drooling snapshots after the break.
