Samsung Galaxy Note is an on-the-go device which consolidates core benefits of diverse mobile devices while maintaining smartphone portability. It has a 5.3” large screen with a HD Super AMOLED display technology, in which the layer that detects touch is integrated into the screen rather than being overlaid on top of it. Compared with the first-generation AMOLED, some of the Super AMOLED advantages are a brighter screen, less sunlight reflection and reduced power consumption.

It is powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, and with the advanced pen-input technology S Pen, you can easily scribble and draw on your notes, photos and videos. Business users can stay connected for important meetings using*Cisco WebEx*, which brings web conferencing, instant messaging, telephony and fixed mobile communication capabilities to a mobile workforce. Users can view shared desktops, browsers, applications and documents.

Samsung Galaxy Note was released in the UK in early November, and Samsung announced that it shipped more than 1 million units by the end of 2011. A software update due early this year will upgrade its Android operating system from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich. This hybrid device, billed as a middle ground between a tablet and a smartphone, can be an interesting tool for busy business people.
