Is it a tablet or is it a smartphone? Whatever it is, the Samsung Galaxy Note is creating quite a stir and a lot of anticipation. We have a feeling that many are wondering when the Galaxy Note will be launched in Malaysia and for how much.
While we don’t have confirmed information on that, we know that Jakarta will play host to the regional launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note on November 8 and we will be reporting on the event LIVE as it happens, so stay tuned for the latest.
Closer to home, we’re expecting the Galaxy Note to be available a little later after that.
Samsung has released a simple interactive video to showcase Samsung Galaxy Note capabilities. It features a guy that shows off his Galaxy Note features for business, social and creativity.
The Galaxy Note’s 5.3″ HD Super AMOLED display offers more possibilities with its tablet-like 1280×800 screen resolution. This Phone-Tablet is expected to launch very soon. If you’ve been thinking of getting a tablet but the massive size puts you off, this might be the next best alternative.
The Samsung Galaxy Note. Is it a tablet or is it a phone? Who needs a stylus? Does it matter? It’s a certainty that the Samsung Galaxy Note is coming to Malaysia, either too big for a phone or too small for a tablet, the Note looks to be a device that will create a lot of curiosity especially with that oddity that is the stylus.
This first ad of the Galaxy Note presents a very compelling case as to why a big screen and a stylus can be a good thing indeed.
What do you think?
The upcoming 5.3″ Samsung Galaxy Note has finally appeared in Malaysia. Don’t get too excited just yet. It isn’t officially available but the folks at Lowyat were lucky enough to get exclusive preview of the device ahead of launch.
Earlier we predicted the Galaxy Note will be launched in Malaysia sometime in December. With the recent price drop of its 4.3″ Samsung Galaxy S II and this latest preview, we might be seeing a possible launch in the next couple of weeks to come. Pricing wise we would expect it to be priced around RM2,000 to RM2,300 range.
So if you’ve been waiting for the Galaxy S II, would you consider the larger Note instead? Our comparison of latest smart phone specs and dimensions here might help.

The Samsung Galaxy Note is expected to go on sale in the UK in November. At £500 (about RM2,450), the 1.4GHz dual-core 5.3-inch Android smartphone/tablet hybrid device is expensive but then again, devices in Europe have always been considerably more expensive than anywhere else, still we think the device will be around the RM2,000 mark when it comes to Malaysia.
Speaking of Malaysia, signs are pointing to the possibility of the Galaxy Note launching in Malaysia as early as December and probably no later than February 2012 with a possible operator tie-up.
Apart from the the big 5.3-inch screen, the Galaxy Note brings a 8MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera and a 2,500mAh battery in a 9.7mm slender body. There’s also a digital stylus which works just like the one that comes with the HTC Flyer with a key difference being that the Galaxy Note has a silo to store the stylus in.

Several days back, the Samsung Galaxy Note was revealed as a phone-tablet that offers a 5.3″ screen and a S-Pen stylus. So how good is the stylus? Is it as good as a real pen?
Here’s a video of a sketch artist drawing on the Galaxy Note. It is pretty impressive for a stylus and it is able to draw with a fine tip. Now we can’t wait for it to come to Malaysia with a decent price tag.

Samsung has revealed the Samsung Galaxy Note, a brand new 5.3″ Android phone-tablet device at their Unpacked event. At 5.3″, it does seem to fill the void Dell has left behind. However this is not any ordinary smartphone enlarged for tablet usage.
At the front, the Galaxy Note has a 5.3″ HD Super AMOLED WXGA display which pushes 1280×800 resolution – the highest we’ve seen for a screen this size. In terms of pixel density, it does 285 ppi (Pixels per inch) which is still below iPhone 4’s retina display of 326 ppi.
Powering the device is a 1.4GHz dual core processor and it also comes with 16GB of storage which is expandable with microSD. Like the Galaxy S II, it has a 8MP camera at the back and a 2MP at the front. Size wise, it manages to maintain a slim profile at 9.65mm and it weighs 178g. Not bad considering it uses a 2500mAh removable battery.
To give a proper tablet with note-taking experience in smart phone form, Samsung has introduced a S-Pen stylus. This adds-on to its multi-input capabilities as it promises precise and faster pen-like writing while on the go. While this sounds similar to the HTC Flyer, the S-Pen seems to be offering more usability as an input device rather than a mere scribbler. Best of all, the S-Pen can be stored inside the device’s silo. Since this is a smart phone, it uses Android 2.3 instead of Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
Is a 5.3″ really necessary? With a higher resolution display and a stylus, it is more useful from a productivity standpoint than a 4.3″ Samsung Galaxy S II. In terms of size, this is definitely more pocket-able than a 7 inch tablet. So which size are you – 5.3″, 7″, 7.7″, 8.9″ or 10.1″?
Head to their microsite for more details.
