You asked, and Samsung listened. Or, something like that. Regardless of whether the world needs an 8" smartphone, it now has one. The global version of Samsung's newly announced Galaxy Note 8.0 is indeed a phone, and yes, it can make calls and handle text messages just like the original Note and Note II. It's a true hybrid of tablet and phone, but we're pretty sure only the brave would risk making a phone call with something this huge (without a Bluetooth headset, anyway). The versions destined for the U.S. will support data transmissions only, with no voice support, probably because the market... Read more...
Let there be no lingering doubt: Samsung has an 8" tablet in the pipeline. While the original Galaxy Tab filled the 7" void, and the Note 10.1 has done likewise for the largest 10" form factor, there's always a market for the in-between. In an effort to address each and every possible preference, Samsung is evidently readying a Galaxy Note 8.0. Rumors were already flying that an 8" Android slate was on the docket for the company, but now there's confirmation courtesy of an FCC filing. If you don't follow these closely, an FCC filing generally foreshadows a near-term release of a product. Essentially,... Read more...
Samsung's Galaxy Note range of phablets has taken off in a way that most outside of Samsung never could have imagined. New form factors are always a gamble, but it seems that splitting the difference between a tablet and a smartphone has paid off in spades for the Galaxy brand. In fact, even owners of the original Galaxy Note now have something else to look forward to. Samsung has just confirmed that the Premium Suite upgrade for the original Note is en route. It's a refreshed user interface, which pulls many details from the UI that ships with the Note II. It'll give Note owners Air View, multi-window... Read more...
If you were wondering how Samsung's Galaxy Note II would hold up under the intense pressures of the smartphone world, maybe this will give you some sort of idea. Samsung Korea just announced that five million Note II units have been shipped since launch all around the globe, which is up from three million just a few months ago. Of course, many expected the phablet craze to die out about as quickly as it came to pass, but that's clearly not the case. Evidently there's something to be said about including a stylus with a phone these days, particularly one that does as many tricks as the S Pen. It's... Read more...
The original Samsung Galaxy Note was a bit of an oddity. When it was first introduced, many reviewers, analysts, and industry pundits scoffed at the device’s relatively large form factor. The 5.3” screen on the original Note looked simply gargantuan next to anything else available on the market at the time, leading many folks to call the original Note a “phablet”. In spite of the widespread criticisms of the original Galaxy Note’s form factor, a funny thing happened—Samsung sold a boatload of them. And what do you get when the first product in an unchartered... Read more...
The original Samsung Galaxy Note was a bit of an oddity in the smartphone market. When it was first introduced, many reviewers, analysts, and industry pundits scoffed at the device’s relatively large form factor. The 5.3” screen on the original Note looked simply gargantuan next to anything else available on the market at the time, leading many folks to call the original Note a “phablet”. It wasn’t quite large enough to be a full-blown tablet, but was considered too big by some to be called a smartphone, hence “phablet”. In spite of the widespread... Read more...
Does the world need any more phablets? Isn't it all just a craze? Evidently Samsung has reason to believe that the phablet craze is one that's profitable, and it's using that justification to launch the second iteration of the Galaxy Note. It's a device that can be looked at as a huge phone or a small tablet, but either way, millions of consumers have snapped it up. Now, the Galaxy Note II is going even larger, with a 5.5" HD Super AMOLED display, Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and additional S Pen (that's Samsung's stylus) functionality. The new Note II has a 16:9 aspect ratio, which should be ideal... Read more...
We heard tell last week that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 would be available worldwide sometime in August. For the Brits at least, there’s now a more precise availability date: Thursday, August 16th. Samsung UK Tweeted that the new device will be available exclusively at the Westfield Brand Store in Stratford, but presumably, many other stores and locations will have the thing, too. It’s possible that Samsung UK leaked the news a little early, as Samsung is widely expected to announce release details, including dates and pricing, at an event on August 15th. For those excited by... Read more...
In a world where Apple and Samsung just can't get along, one has to wonder if the delayed release of the Galaxy Note 10.1 isn't largely because of ongoing patent squabbles. Now, however, the 10.1" edition of the Android-powered Note tablet seems to truly be inching closer to release. It features a lot of the same software and S Pen-based tricks as on the Note sold currently on AT&T, but in much larger form. The 30 second commercial showcases one particular "fix" feature titled Shape Match, where a pie chart that was scribbled together in an elevator is automatically trimmed up and fashioned...

AT&T's version of the Galaxy S II (Skyrocket) just started receiving the Android 4.0 update via Kies. Now, another Samsung phone on AT&T's network can say the same: the oversized Galaxy Note is the latest to get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich, and the update will also bundle Samsung's 'Premium Suite.' That includes S Note, a new application that enhances productivity and professionalizes communications; a widget that enables one touch access to all S Memo features; and My Story, an application which uses the S Pen (a fancy stylus) to create customized greeting cards and notes. Looking for... Read more...

Ah, there it is. The awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is here, bringing a the big screen experience to the Note family.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Note 10.1 runs a dual-core 1.4 GHz chip; Android 4.0 ICS; 16, 32, or 64GB of storage (with another 32GB available via the microSD slot); 1GB of RAM; 3MP autofocus camera with LED flash and...

Samsung's Galaxy Note -- largely seen as the largest smartphone on the market today -- is coming to AT&T. After launching globally a while back, AT&T has decided that Samsung's large screen and S Pen technology are too much to resist here in the U.S. It's a 4G LTE device as well, arriving on February 19th in carbon blue and ceramic white. The price? $299.99 on a 2-year agreement, which is about par for the course with LTE phones these days, let alone one that's this huge. Pre-orders will begin on 2/5, and those who do will get a 2-day head start on delivery. If you've forgotten some of... Read more...
