That's the reason why Android devices are not being considered as corporate handsets just like Blackberry and iPhone. It's a lame that with such powerful hardware of Android, they cannot fix this, it's basic, even the old iPhone 3G supports this as well as Blackberry.

Is this a joke,this is no longer a phone.That is some half breed (Hybrid).Do you get a backpack along with a "phone",to carry it around. Oh plis that's just stupid.
So... its OK for the iphone 4 to be over $1000 (in Australia) but its outrageous for a Samsung? Is it insane that the iphone is more expensive than the ipad? the galay s/s2 is more expensive than the tab?? are they in tablet territory?
The thing is, very few people are going to pay the full $1000, most are going for network subsidization. I get my iphone 32gb on the $69 plan with 3gb of data and plenty of call and text, $0 upfront, the handset fee is paid off over 24 months.
News sites need to stop this unnecessary negativity. I expect this from Engadget and Co. but not from you GSM Arena.. The Note is a great phone, and it would be foolish to think this would be cheaper than the galaxy s2.
What's the big deal about the price??!! when iPhone 4 came out the price of the 32 GB was @ 1,050 USD and this is more than just a phone it's tele/tablet contain all the features that you can ask for... come on people let's be fair

Am not a nokia fan boy but the Nokia 360 NFC Speakers will be in my hand when i get the nexus prime
Todate I cannot find a reason to buy any tablet since I need a real laptop for business and a phone. Now since this phone combine both tablet and phone function, it is pecfect regardless of the cost since I am not buying a tablet. Hence, in this case it is justifiable on the price.
RIP Dell Streak, it has served me well. Here come the Galaxy Note...IN LOVE
I need to argue, 07 Sep 2011What you gonna do when all the NFC sound system gonna came out???can you elaborate what is NFC sound system is all about? Is it the near field communication used in payment system such as credit cards?
I need to argue, 07 Sep 2011He never try a high end android smart phone lololololol!!!!Oh really, so SGS2 is not a high end Android? So what's next? Come-on give me some link that the things i mentioned is working out of the box on SGS2 and come back to me, oh sure you can make the Skype video call works after countless hours installing compatible custom application. But the WiFi thing (WPA Interprise LEAP), maybe it will be supported on the next Android version but when?
joonius, 07 Sep 2011"WiFi incompatibility to N-draft, WPA enterprise is not supported, secondary camera is no... moreWow, are you a psychic or something? Can you prove that Samsung Galaxy S1 or S2 supports WiFi with WPA interprise with LEAP? Go to your WiFi settings and see if you can find it and try to connect. Try to make a video call in YM now or Skype and use the secondary camera. The phone should be out of the box, without any custom modification, then come back to me that I'm wrong.
Skype video call is for selected Android only and SGS2 is not on the list. You need to customize it. Lucky if you succeeded the first time. goodluck.
WPA Interpise LEAP/EAP is not supported by Android. It's crap. Now tell me that I'm wrong.
for this little price, ill take 2 lol.
com'on samsung, this is so overpriced...
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2011Oh dear, you clearly haven't touched an android phone before. Its as fluid as iOS in surfing a... moreMy dear , I used both android and iOS. iOS 4.3 on iPod touch and 2.3 gingerbread on s2.
No matter how much u say. iOS beats android in apps apart from those live wallpaper apps or utility apps. Only good thing about android is widgets and OEMs make big screens.
I love sd slot and removable battery remind me of old nokia phones.
Coming to OS. Android is not well polished as iOS but touchwiz 4.0 is really good I think.
Android doesn't support multiplayer in most games and they won't work as smooth as in iOS. I currently have 547 apps on iOS and 49 apps on android.
Taking about quality , iOS apps half of them work both on iPad and iPhone with full optimization and features but android ? o0. Remaining half of them can run in iPad but no full screen. honeycomb perhaps 200 ?. All those 549 apps I got are full versions and ad-free and support retina display. I got apps from free promo codes and etc.
But remaining I like flash , widgets , smoothness etc etc. I am very happy with galaxy s2 but apps quality and feel of OS doesn't match with iOS. If u remove widgets and sd slot in android phones I bet I never use or buy android phone.
My music system supports only iPod to listen to music. I can't put galaxy s2 and listen through music system. Such things I think iOS devices have lot of advantages.
But after looking only hardware . iPhone hardware not as good as samsung or of hardware interim of specifications. It's high price. So talking just about OS I clearly like iOS but coming to entire hardware+software+price = android beats so hard.
My conclusion is overall experience of iPhone and android phones is equal but u must go into apple's locked down Eco system of macs and iPhones. So at the end those who don't like to be in single Eco system definitely forget about iPhone.
