If there’s one thing about Samsung and their releases, it’s that they can’t get a consistent size for each. But then again, they try to cater a wider market with their phones and here’s one that will bridge this market with the tablets. Here’s the Galaxy Note, Samsung’s answer to those wanted a tablet but can’t afford its sheer size. Here’s the teardown, the thing has a huge 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display running at 1280 x 800 resolution, that’s HD right there — something you’d only get from either a laptop or their Galaxy 10.1 Tab. Now the Note is specifically made for those who wanted to write things on the go, and to help them is an included stylus that will do more than just write. It allows you to crop pictures, take screenshots and more. All in all, it’s like the Galaxy S II, just got bigger… and of course with the improved dual core processor running at 1.4 GHz each.
