Samsung is stepping up their game in the mobile phone division. With the release of the Galaxy Note, it is the best solution for the traveling artist that I have ever seen. With its incomparable 5.3” Samsung display, it is quite possibly the brightest and most color rich phone I have seen.
To demonstrate the magnificent abilities the Galaxy Note is capable of, Samsung has set up a couple of booths around Las Vegas were attendees can have caricature artists draw them on the Galaxy Note. The S Memo (a multimedia application) is the application they have been demonstrating during the show and it’s pretty amazing for the traveling artist. It is exactly like a tablet an artist would typically use, but on a phone, meaning the artist on the go can easily draw any doodles whenever they may want and need it.
The 1.5GHZ dual-core processor also ensures a fast and smooth user experience, something the tech geek in all of us can appreciate. It also has a 16GB on-board memory with an expandable memory of up to 32 GB. It is set to be released with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) but hopefully in April when Android 2.4 comes out (Ice Cream Sandwich), this phone will be one of the lucky ones that get the update. Like most smartphones that are coming out now, there is a front facing camera (2MP) and a rear-facing (8MP).
I personally like the way this phone works, even though I do think it’s a bit large for me. I would however recommend it to anyone that is either an artist or writer who takes a lot of notes and doesn’t like carrying around a pen and paper everywhere they go. The Samsung Galaxy Note is set to come out later this February, exclusive to AT&T.
