Finally the wait is over the Samsung “something new is here“, the Samsung Galaxy Note launched today for a price band of Rs. 34,990 in India. The display screen is slightly bigger than normal smartphones but smaller than the tablets available in the market. This makes the Galaxy Note a perfect hybrid and well it does come with a pen oops an S Pen to be precise.

We knew the Galaxy Note was coming to India on 2nd November and there was nothing new about it. The S Pen (stylus) is particularly interesting because it will give better control when scribbling, editing pictures and taking notes, ah well that’s why this tablet is called the Note.


The Samsung Galaxy Note supports 3G, 2G (EDGE / GPRS) and comes loaded with Android 2.3.5 the gingerbread OS but it can be upgraded to the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Whew!.  As far as the specifications are concerned this tablet comes powered by 1.4 GHz processors (Dual Core) with a 5.3 inch Super AMOLED HD screen. The note sports 2 cameras the rear 8 MP with flash (LED) and the front facing 2 MP with many camera features like action shot, panorama, single shot etc.

The Samsung Galaxy Note tablet comes loaded with Samsung Apps, Samsung Kies 2.0 and TouchWiz. The Google services are also built in it is the same that you see on any android phone (Gmail, Maps etc.)

Will you buy it? But do have a look at Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 7.7 or the Samsung Galaxy S2.

Getting an in hand experience of the Galaxy Note before you buy is something which is hard to find in India. Well it’s all blah blah until the box pack is opened, but this also means you have bought it and no turning back.
