The rumor finally became a reality today when AT&T finally announced the Samsung Galaxy Note for its next-generation 4G LTE network. If you’re unfamiliar, the Galaxy Note is a 5.3-inch smartphone and a device that has been highly anticipated by those hoping to get their hands on an over-sized phone.
And while the general public won’t be able to get their hands on the device until an undisclosed data, we were able to get hands-on with AT&T’s Galaxy Note at CES 2012 today.
Let’s be clear. The Galaxy Note is not for everyone. Its screen size sits between that of a smartphone and a tablet and at this point, we can’t see it becoming a mainstream device.
It will however please the niche crowd that’s looking for something in-between both devices, especially those that want a stylus to use with their phone.
Yes, the Galaxy Note comes with Samsung’s S-Pen and you’ll see a quality demo of that in the video.
The Galaxy Note’s 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display, which boasts a resolution of 1280 x 800, was brilliant, its 1.5GHz processor zipped along running Android Gingerbread, and while it certainly felt larger to hold than a smartphone, it wasn’t a struggle.
Those of you with smaller hands might beg to differ.
So far, we’re loving AT&T’s version of the Galaxy Note but we’ll reserve the final verdict for our full review.
