Steve J, 11 Nov 2011Hold on a minute! This device is too big for a phone. Portability is essential for a mobile. I... moreYou cannot "invent" a market. Either a market exists or it doesn't. In this case, it clearly does and Samsung has been smart enough to recognize that. Business users, creative professionals, media-intensive power users -- all of them would benefit from the larger screen real estate enormously.Videos clearly show that the device is quite portable as long as you're not wearing skin-tight clothes. Way better than purchasing a mobile phone AND a tablet and then lug both around. The real clinchers are:
1) The battery life, which is absolutely gold considering the kind of heavy-duty usage this device is likely to undergo.
2)The stylus which will likely prove to be extremely useful for the kind of users this device is targeted at.
Hold on a minute! This device is too big for a phone. Portability is essential for a mobile. It is ridiculous holding what looks like a slice of bread when making or receiving calls. We who fought for the phone revolution did not do so, only to have the ugly face of unportability thrown back at us.
Samsung would have been better off retaining the screen size of SGSII but increasing the screen resolution. Furthermore the sound quality of the earpiece and speakers of SGSII and this Note could be vastly improved. These devices are primarily phones and Samsung should not forget this.
Apple have beaten Samsung in the tablet war. Sammy is now trying to invent a new niche market. It is answering a question that was never asked!
my friend got 1 of these.. This phone is off the chain
id love to get 1
If anyone knows when the white version will be available or finds a place it is for sale please post it.
AnonD-29823, 10 Nov 2011plz if anyone bought this brilliant phone/tablet..i need to know its price in middle east..and... morehi there i'm from egypt too, alexandria (a7san nas) ;p
to be specific any way i believe that when samsung released it it will take time for samsung to disterbute the phone in regions & countries & it will pop up or won't pop up eventually on the mobiles vendors websites you know like "select-mob.com" & "elshennawy" just wait for a while & check regularly the website
BTW that's my same problem with the "samsung Galaxy S2 HD LTE" (you know will it be released in egypt or not ? ) i'm waiting like crazy for it.
The most important thing is to wait for a month or two after the release of the device & check regularly the website i gave you "www.select-mob.com"
