Samsung Galaxy Note: Too Big For Galaxy S II But To Small For Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Updated on July 11, 2012

Perhaps Samsung think they can prevent what happen to Dell Streak, when Dell axed its 5-inch phone and when they introduced its own 5.3-inch smartphone-tablet crossover called the Galaxy Note. The slender Android 2.3, Samsung Galaxy Note, blurs the line between phones and tablets, comes with a bundled stylus for those who don't want to use their fingers and need I mentioned, it's also named against their naming convention (the Galaxy W, Galaxy M Pro, Galaxy Y and Galaxy Y Pro and etc.).

Introduction To Samsung Galaxy Note

Samsung Galaxy Note - A Revival Of Stylus

Stylus became death after the introduction of iPhone. Samsung added a stylus to the Galaxy Note, which is dubbed the S Pen.

However, unlike my good old iPaq, the Galaxy Note comes with a series of dedicated apps, the S Pen Apps, that will use the full potential of this stylus and make things even more attractive for developers. The stylus works with a bunch of built-in apps, including calendar, to-do, and note taking. Third-party developers will also be able to add S Pen functionality to their apps.

Samsung also released an S Pen SDK in order to help anyone built apps for this new device.

Get The Feel Of Samsung Galaxy Note By Trying Out Samsung Galaxy S II

While Samsung Galaxy Note not yet available in the market but you can get the feel of this device by buying Samsung Galaxy S II, since both use the same specification minus the stylus.

Other than screen - most notably the tucked in S Pen stylus, which might not be exactly a new feature for smartphones (remember HP iPaq), but more as a revival to Stylus. Its connectivity package is pretty comprehensive with both LTE and HSPA+ radios, backed up by a 2,500mAh battery, the biggest we've seen in a smartphone (even Samsung call it a smartphone, look at the 1st video). Perhaps the next best question should be, is bigger necessarily better?

Between Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung Tab?

Will Ipad Mini Kill Galaxy Note

Apple 'set to unveil smaller 7-inch iPad Mini in time for Christmas'

According to American business experts Bloomberg, Apple is currently developing a budget version of its best-selling tablet, dubbed the iPad Mini, which may be unveiled in October.

The proposed mini iPad is expected to feature a 7-inch screen, significantly smaller than the current 9.7-inch version. Apple's retina screen will also be dropped from the budget model according to Bloomberg, but will have the same amount of pixels at the iPad 2.

However an 'iPad Mini' would contradict the assertion made by late Apple founder Steve Jobs about the possibility of smaller versions of the tablet.

'The 7-inch tablets are tweeners: too big to compete with a smartphone, and too small to compete with an iPad,' Jobs said in 2010. 'They are going to be DOA.'
