Samsung Galaxy Note to start selling in UK Q1 of 2012, US launch coming later on

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.
- Display 5.3" 800 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 2 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 4, Dual-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 2500 mAh(13.50h 3G talk time)

I WANT ONE

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.

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

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.
