Awesome - purely awesome! but... Galaxy Note? NOTE?! What a dull name!! I demand changing it to something like Galaxy S2 HD or something like that! Until I heard the specs I was sure it was some boring miniature tablet a-la dell streak.

what I like about the device is the resolution.... I mean this is the closet to the 4-4.3" I like while spotting a huge ress, this is around 285dpi making it really close to retina on 4-4.3 its retina like at 351dpi witch is good to see and feeds more rumors about s super high resolution hovering close to the market :D and I'd like to see improvement

The tab 7.7 should get an stylus too... i think that those note taking capabilities are pretty cool! they should include that on bigger tab! Its a great tool for designers!

Looks like this could be a happy medium between the mobile and the tablet. . . lets call it a MOTAB!!. Also a stylus is a handy feature along side the capture and drawing features, a lot of industries will embrace this, especially for those chubby fingered people out there. (you try drawing professionally with your finger!!)

Great phone with great functions but with the rumors of Galaxy s3 is all around, the specs of this Galaxy Note will definitely disappointing. with only 1.4ghz dualcore processor & 1GB of RAM...really disappointing.

I want it now. I've got a HD2 and waited 3 mounths for it's release. As soon as I got my head around it I wanted a 6" version. Well 5.3" is close enough and 720 HD is a must for displaying my photos. The proccesor is probably 3 times as powerfull as well, etc. etc.
