The Samsung Galaxy Note’s release date has been brought forward by two weeks to next Thursday (November 3).
It will be available across high street retailers including Carphone Warehouse, major networks and online electrical retailers.
The Galaxy Note, which is powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and runs off Android 2.3 Gingerbread, comes with a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen and eight megapixel camera.
It will be available in 16GB and 32GB models, with memory expandable by a further 32GB with a microSD card.
Samsung described the Galaxy Note as “combining the benefits of a notebook with the portability of a smartphone”.
Samsung will also launch S Choice when the Galaxy Note goes on sale, its new category of applications designed for the Galaxy Note’s pen. They will be available to customers from the Samsung Apps store.
Samsung Mobile UK and Ireland managing director Simon Stanford said: “We’ve had a great response from our retail partners, customers and industry watchers alike following the Galaxy Note announcement at IFA in September, and are excited that consumers will be able to buy the device from a wide range of retailers as of next week.”
