Watch the full Samsung Galaxy Note event here: the infinite possibilities of the S Pen
The Samsung Galaxy Note first shocked us with its 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display, but while that’s certainly a compelling decision, it’s not the sole focus of this handset. It’s the mix of the S Pen, a built-in stylus, a mix of software tweaks that allow using it throughout the interface, that really makes the Note stand out. You’d also have to get rid of those tight fitting jeans to put it in your pocket, but you’d already had some problems trying to fit even a smaller handset in there, hadn’t you?

Now, the Galaxy Note also features some interesting additions to its interface. Different gestures boost productivity greatly. The first one we’d mention is swiping your whole hand over the screen. This instantly saves a screenshot. Neat! Whatever you do on a phone, if reality comes in your way, you can just put your palm on the screen and it will pause everything you do.

Available in white and dark blue, and very thin for its size, just 0.38 inches (9.65mm) the handset has squeezed a lot of horsepower. To remind you the rest of the technical details, we’d mention that it’s a 1.4Ghz dual-core processor that makes the phone tick, an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording and HSPA or LTE depending on the market. 

The Galaxy Note comes with a number of stylish accessories including a leather pouch, a flipcase and an ergonomic S Pen holder.

Now, with all of that in mind, check out the really amazing demo and full unveiling event hosted by Samsung. Trust us, you’d be amazed - the interesting part starts at about the 8 minute mark.

cooool.

it didnt look nearly as big in the hand as i thought it would. gives me hope that i could hold it.. lol

for the huge screen, battery and 1.4ghz exynos... that would be worth having (and ripping ICS to it.. lol)

I agree, it looks very comfortable to hold. It's a sweet device. I think I am just going to hold out for quad-core phone. I am so satisfied with my rooted HTC Evo 3D that I can most definitely hold out for a quad-core phone.

Wow imagine a quad-core Exynos, 720p HD Samsung Galaxy S III.

Yes my HTC Evo 3D will keep me going until that monster comes out! lol

I would definitely consider bailing on my beloved HTC EVO 3D for this Goliath! Although, I'm a huge fan of & evangelist for HTC's SenseUI overlay....I'd LOVE to have a 5.3" screen! Too big? Really???? Absolutely NOT! I'm a baggy jeans kinda guy....so, the Galaxy Note would fit in my jeans pocket - no problem!

(HTC take note! There ARE some of us who feel that a 5.3"+ screen is NOT too big!)

Maybe I will go for it, but this looks mostly for a graphic designer. Honestly I prefer my GS2
