Samsung Galaxy Note – meet the 5″ Galaxy S2

Samsung introduces a tablet-cum-phone for those who want both a S2 and Tab in one device.

Samsung Galaxy Note is a phone that sits some where in between Samsung Galaxy S2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab. It is a 5.3″ phone that looks just enormous. Samsung Note looks inspired from Dell Streak which is a 5″ tablet-cum-phone. Galaxy Note just takes it up one notch by being even bigger; and looks ridiculous to hold near the ear when talking.

The touchscreen is super Amoled and comes with a digital stylus too if you like to use phones like the old ways. I guess there would be a small market for device like this. For those who want a handset, their requirement is to fit it comfortably in their pockets and those who want to carry a tablet around would find this a little small for their taste or work requirement. So, its not share what market Samsung will target with this device. There is no price or release date announced for this device, so we will have to wait and see how this one fares once released.
