Samsung Note to hit UK November 17


Hybrid tablet smartphone with stylus input to go on sale from November 17

The Samsung Galaxy Note hybrid tablet smartphone will launch in the UK on November 17.

Samsung said the Note will be available across major networks, from retailers and online.

The note has a 5.3 inch HD Super AMOLED screen and a dual core 1.4GHz processor. It comes with a S Pen stylus for input, which Samsung said will make it easier to reate and consume content on the device.

Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “We’re delighted with the overwhelming reception the Galaxy Note has received since it was announced earlier this month and are looking forward to offering Samsung customers a whole new smartphone experience.

“The Galaxy Note is a great example of Samsung’s passion for innovation by bringing to market a brand new category of mobile products. It is our fastest handset to date and brings together all the benefits of our award-winning smartphone technology and services.”

The Note was originally unveiled at IFA in Germany last month. It was meant to be accompanied by the Galaxy Tab 7.7, however that device was pulled from the exhibition due to the firm’s intellectual property dispute with Apple.
