Samsung Galaxy Note II launch supposedly set for this fall - read the full textThe original Samsung Galaxy Note was a big hit for Samsung, selling some 7 million units since coming on the market late last year. Rumors abound that its next iteration will come this October, in anticipation of a fall release date for rival tech giant Apple's iPhone 5. The Note II, if it...

 

Sort by:

The only thing holding the Note from selling in signficantly greater numbers is the price.

If they expand the range to incorporate less expensive devices with a slightly lower spec note devices whilst keeping the 5.3" screen size and widen the range of apps using the pen interface, this will sell.

There are many who like the idea of a phablet. (ie a large surface area to browse with, but having the ability to carry it easily and make calls when necessary) The fact that tablets stubbornly continue to be generally wifi only can only help sales of the Note.

My biggest problem with the note is it's ridiculous width. I don't have hands like shovels! The width of the Galaxy SIII is just about manageable. Yes, waterproofing would be an excellent idea.

I picked up a note in the shop just to sample its size...

There is a definite "bl00dy hell this is bigger than I imagined" feel to it..

And it's pretty damned ugly too...

BUT

It did have a noticeably HUGE bezel which they could easily get rid of to increase screen size without handset size...

I think it would need to look better for me to get one, the note is ugly, no doubt... but give it a sleeker, maybe rounder look (same as GS3) and I could be convinced!!!

I hope that they will not go beyond the size of the first Note. Than it will be already unusable - it will be already a tablet.

Samsung should make display less than 5.3 or only 5.3 Otherwise it will be just ridiculous and i don't think people will favour the 5.3+ Display to run their phones

I'm sorry, did I read that correctly, larger than a 5.3 inch!?!?!?!?
This is getting ridiculous, just keep it at a 5.3 inch and up the ppi to retina display territory and it will be fantastic!
