Samsung Android device launches with Long Term Evolution support
The new device features white front and back covers, a matching white stylus and has support for Long Term Evolution (LTE) connectivity.
The Galaxy is white
There is no confirmation if the white version will launch in other markets, but if it does find its way to the UK, it is almost certain that it won’t have LTE support given the absence of such a service in the country.
The Galaxy Note was first unveiled in September alongside the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and straddles the frontier between smartphone and tablet. Its 5.3 inch HD super AMOLED screen is larger than the average smartphone, but it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is the smartphone version of Google’s mobile operating system.
The device comes with a digital ‘S Pen’ which lets users take notes, create sketches and artwork, while pictures, voice recordings, typed text, handwritten notes and drawings can all be converted to a memo for editing and sharing.
Samsung claim that the device’s light weight and larger screen will allow users to do more on the move, while its screen offers the best viewing experience for a variety of media.
Samsung often tests the water in its homeland with new products before unleashing them elsewhere. Samsung’s Galaxy S II smartphone sold one million units in South Korea before it was released in other markets, breaking every mobile phone record in the country, while its Galaxy Tab 10.1 sold 30,000 units in one month, trumping the number of iPads sold during the same time.
