Galaxy Note is A new type of smartphone, borne of insight and innovation. It is the ultimate on-the-go device which consolidates core benefits of diverse mobile devices while maintaining smartphone portability. It empowers you with everything you can ever desire so that you can simply, feel free. It is truly smart.
Consumer research indicates that people always want to do more tasks much better, even on the go, whether it is web browsing, email, games, or viewing photos and videos. To do all this, consumers carry multiple devices, because each device has unique benefits that work best in a particular situation. Therefore, consumers constantly switch devices to use the right device at the right time.
Even for consumers with multiple smart devices, they still carry around a notepad for writing down ideas. There is an emerging desire for a primary device for on-the-go use that could consolidate the core tasks of multiple devices as well as recreate the ease and simplicity of using a pen and paper. The GALAXY Note was created to reflect your desires. The Galaxy Note is a primary device that will minimize the need to switch to other devices while on the go and open up the potential of your mobile experience.

Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 Review
… I feel like starting this by saying ‘it’s been a long time coming’. I only say that because my first attempt at getting my hands on the Galaxy Note ended with it getting ‘lost’ in the mail. I blame no one… that original seller and Amazon stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally so … on to my review!
I received my Note a few days ago and have been putting it through its paces since then. I do need to say that I almost went into cardiac arrest when I opened the box to find the case open/seal broken! My first thought was to start the return process, but then I noticed a U.S. electrical adapter had been added last minute to the package as it is an import and would not have shipped ordinarily with one included. If there had been even the slightest sign of tampering, it would sadly have been returned…so far I am glad to report nothing seems out of place! My advice to the seller(s) out there: If opening an electronics order to ascertain whether a U.S. power adapter is needed, leave a little ‘note’ for your clientele along with said adapter… future heart attack(s) duly averted!
I went with the white model which as most of you probably know, costs a little more. Worth it? Hell yeah… It is beautiful, elegant, sharp, thin, light, and yes- it’s BIG. I’m a big guy with big hands and long fingers and still this thing just fits in my mitt! The thinness is what makes it manageable, but I will take no chances and down the road I will find a suitable case to carry it around in. My hope is that the company Otter Box, makers of some great heavy duty cases for other smart phones, will rise to the challenge and design something special for this behemoth!
Beyond the great looks of my new white Note, one of the first things I noticed is the speed! A 1.4gH Dual Core processor is crazy, but apparently necessary to power the 5.3 inch gorgeously colorful screen. It’s an easy thing to marvel at when looking at high resolution video or photos. I did a test run video shoot yesterday and it blew me away. The clarity of the picture, absolutely no stutter or choppiness… amazing! Reading text, or magazines, or web pages is a true pleasure again because of this crisp, clear, clean screen. I may update this with phone analysis once I’m set up. Tricky thing is Verizon and Spring allegedly will get their versions this year too. We will see what happens after AT&T sets it all off. As far as I’m concerned, the only thing missing now is the Ice Cream Sandwich update. I’ve not been able to find a definitive word on when we Note holders will get ours (Motorola Xoom folks have gotten theirs I see…)I will give Samsung a bit more credit though because they are preparing the first OS update with some cool new functionality for the Note… not ICS, but in a pinch it’ll do!
In closing, I’m glad that I didn’t wait to get this. I’ll get to choose a few things now that I wouldn’t have got to otherwise so… top dollar- well spent!
