Samsung Note: It’s Not a Phone, It’s Not a Tablet, It’s a Phablet!

By , Feb 5, 2012

A few days ago, Samsung released a teaser for what they called the next big thing, in which they made fun of us poor Apple users. Today we found out what the next big thing is when Samsung showed off the Note, during the Super Bowl.

I was a bit confused while watching this. Is it a phone? Is it a tablet? It seems even Samsung isn’t sure what the Note really is. Turns out the Note is a phone/tablet hybrid, with – I’m not kidding you – a stylus…

The Galaxy Note sports a 5.3-inch 1280×800 screen, powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, and 16GB of built-in memory. Some nice specs, but is that enough?

I’m really not sure there is a market for such a device, but Samsung might prove me wrong when the device goes on sale in the US on February 19th.

What do you think?

    I get the demand for the Galaxy S2. Great device.

    But a 5.3″ device that you are supposed to tote everywhere? A stylus?!? That might be fun to play with every once in awhile, but after a couple weeks I don’t know how the majority of people wouldn’t find that useless.

    Props for hanging their balls out there with something new, but this won’t be taking any significant market share from Apple. Maybe take some market share from the Galazy S2 though.

    Samsung is trying their hand at making something creative that everyone wants just like Apple. I just have a feeling that this is going to fail miserably, Apple has already created a market for these products and has set the bar extremely high. I also like how the commercial shows something on this hybrid device that looks exactly like facetime.

    Why does everybody assumed that the iPhone 5 is gonna be a bomb??
    Remember how was the expectation for the 4S? -disappointed-
    Bet these fanboys never been out of the Apple Crate. ;P
    Expect the GS3 guys. Period. ;)

    ps. I’m currently using the both the GS2 and iPhone 4. Both has their own flaws.
    Both aren’t perfect.
