Samsung Galaxy Note to start selling in UK Q1 of 2012, US launch coming later on
It's not the best news for all who are eagerly awaiting to snap one of the most intriguing handsets the mobile industry has come up with, namely the supersized Samsung Galaxy Note, but Samsung representatives have said that we will have to wait until Q1 of 2012 to see the phone hit the shelves in the UK. The US launch is supposedly coming afterwards, but we didn't expect anything else, considering all the wait for the Samsung Galaxy S II.

So, unfortunately, anyone who planned to grab this thing for the holidays, will have to sit tight, or get lured by something else, although nothing quite matches the Galaxy Note's concept currently.

SlashGear managed to fondle the handset a bit more, and noted that most Android Market apps just stretch and fit the handset's insane 800x1280 HD resolution, instead of showing in a window on the phone's 5.3" display, which is one possibility that took away from our sleep at night so far. The reviewer also noted that Samsung's proprietary S Pen capacitive stylus technology seems to be pretty spot on while you are drawing, not spilling ink or lagging behind the tip

This is reassuring, not to mention that Samsung still doesn't have final software on the Galaxy Note sample units. Precisely because of that, they didn't let the reviewer run synthetics like Quadrant, but the SunSpider browser test had returned 2894.4ms, better than the Galaxy S II result of 3584.3ms.

All we can say is that a Samsung Galaxy Note engineering unit can't come soon enough to the office for us to handle and relay to you all the nitty-gritty about this exceptional handset.

I want one too!!

But I want to OC the CPU a bit. we're talking about almost 3x more pixels on screen here. That thing needs a bit more of a power boost than 200Mhz more on each core. I'm thinking something along the line of 1.7Ghz on each core would be enough to ensure extra-smooth performance. The HUGE battery should also be capable of handling this.

at its current resolution the exynos doesnt break a drop of sweat in the sgs2. Its not going to at that resolution either.. especially since most apps will display in more common resolutions.

No worries.

By the time this one comes out even in the U.S., there will be 50 other devices like these by Samsung. I feel your pain

I think they should wait until these devices r completely ready before they announce them,then make them available two weeks after.

They can do that...!! but its a marketing procedure to announce a device way before its release!! so that people get excited and get it even more!!!

Samsung give us enough time to decide the devices. Don't release too much with less spec difference.

dumb move made by Samsung , by Q1 2012 some other big smartphone company or even Samsung will already have announced a quad-core smartphone and the spotlight won't be on the Galaxy Note anymore like it is today

or a smart move in the sense that s2 is still selling too well, thus being it's only competitor ATM. S2 has been available since may in Europe I believe - is still selling at high prices without a real challenger. so no fuzz till htc brings in some new juice, which is always deemed later as hoped; aah the waiting ;) devoted Iphone users have made their minds up, accidental tech aware apples already fell for s2. so really Samsung seems to be on top of things.

This will be a tough call for me. I already have my heart set on the Sony PSP Vita with 5" inch screen. The samsung Note would make a geat device for surfing the internet with it's large portrait display and the need to minimize scrolling. However, to honest, I only want to carry on device and playing sony games outweigh surfing the internet during my downtime.

well by the time this launches in america then, the Kal El will be out and probably be old news. damnit. This just went from a high end phone to a huge mid tier phone from this announcement.
