Samsung outs 5in Galaxy Note as new smartphone concept

Revamping the PDA?

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

IFA 2011 We now know what the Samsung Galaxy Note - the product name leaked last week alongside the Galaxy Tab 7.7 - actually is. It's a "new type of smartphone", apparently.

Or rather it's a 5.3in, 1280 x 800 touchscreen tablet running Android 2.3 Gingerbread on a 1.4GHz dual-core CPU with on-board dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi and 21Mb/s HSPA 3G connectivity. There's a choice of 16GB or 32GB on-board storage.

Oh, and it also works with a stylus: "an advanced pen-input technology, called the S Pen… to introduce a new type of user-experience," as Samsung puts it.

It comes with a bunch of productivity apps - S Planner, S Memo and such, signalling an emphasis on business use - plus Samsung's BlackBerry Messenger rival, ChatOn, and all the usual Google apps.

Remember, Dell recently canned its 5in tablet, the Streak 5. It will be interesting to see if Samsung can make a success of the form-factor.

There's no word on the Note'e release details. ®
