Samsung reveals release for 5in tablet

Time to take Note

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

Samsung today announced its 5in tablet-phone thingamajig, the Galaxy Note, is heading to the UK in November.

Unveiled at IFA 2011, the Samsung Galaxy Note runs on a 1.4GHz dual-core CPU with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It packs a 5.3in display with a 1280 x 800 resolution and an 8Mp camera, and comes in the choice of 16GB or 32GB versions.

Samsung Galaxy Note new smartphone concept

Whether or not the tablet becomes a success commercially remains to be seen. Dell's attempt at a similar 5in tablet was canned after a lack of interest. Earlier this year, it seemed, people weren't keen on what is essentially an oversized smartphone. Perhaps now things will pan out differently.

The Samsung Galaxy Note hits UK shelves on 17 November. Its price has yet to be announced.
