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.
