You not only get a large screen phone but also the option to enjoy tablet features with the main advantage of using this device for taking Notes on the go. It certainly would give you better browsing experience but using it as a phone can sometimes make it look awkward because of the large size which is lot more bigger than your palm.

Also since the Ice Cream Sandwich is already launched, we really hope that this device comes pre-installed with the same but seems like Samsung is again going to fail by providing gingerbread firmware on this device. Probably once the device gets ICS then it would get hardware accelerated and that is when we can actually experience Touch Wiz.

The device is going to be officially launched in India on November 2nd, off-course you can watch it live on AndroidAdvices, you just have to make a note of the time which is 12:30 Pm Indian Time on November 2nd 2011 along with this you can also win a device for yourself. Just visit this link and answer the question which is asked there about the smart pen whose answer we have already answered above following which your entry to Win this device is confirmed.

Update: Samsung Galaxy Note is priced at Rs 34,990 in India and for the first 1 lakh customers who buy this device will get free leather case which I think is worthily freebie.

Question to Readers : Will you buy the Galaxy Note or wait for the Galaxy S3 with 16MP Camera & S5K2P1 CMOS Sensor?

  • Alok

    Is there any hope that price will be less in coming months ? It’s looking quite alluring and attractive, but price is a bit high. I’ll wait for a few months.

    • Yogesh Patel

      I don’t think so, because you the trends, Galaxy S priced was lowered because S2 arrived and S2 is priced now at 27,000 as Galaxy Note has arrived. Don’t think of price with Note as comparatively this device is priced at Rs 41,000 when compared with UK & HK price.

  • pradeep

    it runs 2.3.5 now ?

    • Yogesh Patel

      Yes.

  • Rohan

    Without 4g without nfc no words on android 4.0 platform cost 34990 way to much dropped my idea for buying not happy with samsung

    • Yogesh Patel

      Infact in India we have 3G, where does the question of 4G comes from? It does have NFC but do you think you will use NFC feature?

  • Anjani

    Can we atleast upgrade to ICS after we buy? WIll this support ?

    • Yogesh Patel

      Absolutely! If the official firmware update of Galaxy Note doesn’t arrive, developers will come with custom firmware update and Galaxy Note along with Galaxy S II are the prime contenders from Samsung Brand for ICS Update, they would be the first to receive ICS. Keep checking, we will post the same.

  • Raj

    Someone high up in Samsung seem to have changed Samsung into the fastest chicken farm is mobile comm history. Where is the R&D when you attempt to create a niche product?? Why do they have such difficulty changing from the current Galaxy form factor while developing a new device, still blindly copying iPhone & glaringly without packing the Oomph to go with such a large screen device. The very fact that it has pretty much the same specs as S II makes those who own the S II content with their devices. It is going to be priced too high (42K range) in India & loose out in the market.

      You are quite right in this case because they are not coming out with any serious features when we talk about the recent Galaxy series of Android Mobiles. Also if thats the price then Samsung would find it had to get success for this device when compared to the Galaxy S2 Mobile Phone. Apart from the large screen and stylus there is no reason why someone would upgrade from their current Galaxy Phone unless and until someone is just in a need for a large phone.

    Wow. I am gonna bought this.

  • Androidage

    This is the complete powerful device which has many goodies in it, think it rock and beat the sales of SGSII.

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      We cannot say that it can beat the S2 sales because S2 already has been a hit and many users have bought it and they wont think about upgrading within a few months , but still this can set a benchmark in the industry for its features.

  • Amol

    Thankls for the advice, but I have tried Croma, Reliance digital, Ezone all of them, including local samsung dealer ( whos info I got from Samsung India directly) has no idea and they dont have anything other that 10.1

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      They have had launched the 7″ model earlier in India which is now totally discontinued and Samsung’s focus now is on the 10.1″ Model. You can better wait and check out the Note if it suits your requirement.

  • vivek

    whose going to take vanilla icecream when hot chocolate is at the corner

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      Interesting!

  • Amol

    AMit thanks for the info this looks good, however do you know where I can get myhands on samsung tab 7.7 or 8.9 in INDIA ?

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      Probably for that you need to visit any nearby large electronics store and check out with them.

  • Dr. Amit Johari

    Not Going to buy this. Too big a screen, Heavy. SGS 2 is better for me and i m enjoying it

  • http://www.ashout.com/ P.K.ARUN

    Seems like it is have very big screen, holding this device is difficult for me. I’m eagerly waiting for iphone 4s (factory unlocked) version in Indian to buy it one for me.

  • aabeer alvi

    samsung sayes -” you can enjoy it (note) as a smart phone and also a tab”- so, OS should be ICE CREME SANDWITCH, and memory must be 64GB.

  • aabeer alvi

    samsung says “you will enjoy it (note) as a smart phone and as a Tablet.
    so, it should be first ICE CREME SANDWICH and external memory must be 64GB
    otherwise…………………………..

  • aabeer alvi

    samsung sayes “you will use it (note) as a smart phone and as a tablet.
    so, it should first ICE CREME SANDWICH and external memori must be 64GB

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      You are right atleast in terms of the ICS point but it seems that it will be available by the first quarter of 2012 which is not really far. They would probably want to first launch the device and then move ahead with the upgrade of the OS. Though the 64GB memory can be increased by adding memory cards.

  • Amit Kumar

    The hardware and design is pretty good but i think the 5.3 inches screen is too big for mobile. It will end up like Dell Streak.

  • http://www.digital-dime.net Matt

    What is the difference between Galaxy s3 and this note? should we wait for s3?

    • Yogesh Patel

      Well its your personal opinion which counts. If you feel 5.3 inches is the one you can go with as of now as there are no official dates of Galaxy S3 launch.

  • chandan kazi

    Samsung dont make fullish us because its a tablet-phone please make sure preloded ICE CREAM AND SANDWICH on this device. ………….otherwise not,

    • Yogesh Patel

      Nothing to blame them, ICS is launched very recently. If Google have made the announcement of ICS launch earlier, they would have shipped the Galaxy Note with ICS only. Anyways not to worry as ICS is on the way for many of the top end Samsung smartphones.

  • Ashish Mundhra

    The only thing that’s bothering me is battery. With such a powerful device come great fear of battery performance. Whats the use of carrying it around if their is not enough juice in it to drive it.

    • Yogesh Patel

      Well Galaxy Note would come with 2500 mAh Lithium ion based battery for extra backup.

  • raj

    Damn, What a phone.. My SGS2 is just few months older and now am i finding a new love???

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      Lets try to make samsung replace our current phones with the Note. If that happens it would be just awesome!

  • Sandra

    I can’t wait to try the new Note. Winning it would be just wonderful.

    By the way, I would like to see more info on the Samsung Droid Charge on Android Advices.

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      Sure we will make a note of the same and try to cover Droid Charge as much possible too. And yes it would be great to win the large screen smart phone

  • joy

    Any idea about its price in India as i was planning to buy sgs2 but now i can wait couple of days :)

    • http://www.amitbhawani.com/blog/ Amit Bhawani

      This should be Rs 5000 higher than the Galaxy S2 hence its worth waiting and the news would be out by next weekend. You should wait for the same.

  • sunny
