IFA – the launch pad for Samsung Tablet Mobile Hybrid ‘Galaxy Note’
As per Samsung, the gadget is larger than a normal smartphone and smaller than a conventional tablet, requiring development of an altogether new technology category.
Samsung’s global sales and marketing head and executive vice president, DJ Lee stated that the main reason behind creation of Galaxy Note was to target a large section of users who often carry small notebooks for jotting down ideas. For this purpose, the gadget also features a stowaway stylus for screen captures, drawing and note taking.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note is an Android device that runs on Gingerbread (2.3). It features a 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED 5.3 inch touch screen. Other features of the tablet are HSPA+, LTE, removable 2500mAh battery, 8MP and 2MP dual cameras, 1.4 GHz processor. The hybrid is very light and thin as well – at 178gms and 9.65mm.
The Android operating system comes equipped with TouchWiz. The seven home screens on the tablet are built to optimise the use of stylus that is popularly known as the ‘S Pen’. Some of the programmes included in the gadget are a to-do list app, a native calendar and the S Planner. Furthermore, the appointments can be easily dragged and dropped without the need of opening up an entry.
Samsung is still in the discussion stages with regard to the availability of the device. Therefore, it will be a while before we get some concrete information about that.
