The Samsung Galaxy Note is about to create a new market. It’s time for the Phablet!. A mash up on wording between phone and tablet, or to put it better “tabletphones”. Yes it’s a hybrid, sized between the Galaxy cell phone range and tablet releases and we think it’s going ot do big things..
The Galaxy Note Phablet is actually a large Galaxy S II which has a Super AMOLED HD screen of 5.3 inch (1280 x 800). Small enough to be used as a phone and large enough to be comfortable to use as a tablet, the Galaxy Note Phablet also utlizes a stylus to navigate, draw and of course write.
It features a Qualcomm processor running at 1.4 Ghz, 16 or 32 GB of internal memory and two photo sensors with an 8-megapixels camera. It’s powered by Android 2.3 (powered by Gingerbread and not Ice Cream sandwich, a shame!) supported by the TouchWiz overlay (like all the Galaxy series). Weight is around 178 grams.
Although small it’s still a decent size to get stuck into the touch area with your fingers, however the stylus gives you another option for use. Suddenly I think I’m going to feel like a kid with a Nintendo 3DS!!..
The Galaxy S series has really taken off over this last year, and now with the introduction of a medium size device it opens up a new market. Those who want something larger than a small phone to work with, yet do not want to trawl around with a large tablet device in thir bags. Great thinking Samsung and thanks for the “Galaxy Phablet“!
