Samsung’s Galaxy Note smartphone-tablet-hybrid has been pencilled in for a late November release, for the UK at least. According to retailer Clove, the first Galaxy Note stock will come in midway through Q4, with retail price as-yet unconfirmed but expected to be in the region of £500+VAT ($783).
That gets you a 5.3-inch 1280 x 800 capacitive touchscreen that recognizes not just finger control but Samsung’s bundled digital stylus. Handwriting recognition is supported, along with the ability to annotate screengrabs, notes and other content.
Elsewhere it’s everything you’d expect from a high-end Android smartphone, so there’s an 8-megapixel Full HD video capable camera on the back, a front-facing camera, 3G, WiFi b/g/n and all the usual sensors. A dual-core 1.5GHz processor is inside, keeping things running.
