Samsung announces 5.3in Galaxy Note

Is it a phone? Is it a tablet? We’ll settle for a bit of both

Upon first glance, Samsung’s newly revealed Galaxy Note looks like the result of a vigorous copulation between a Galaxy Tab and S II smartphone. Boasting a gargantuan 5.3in 1,200 x 800px Super AMOLED display, a 1.4Ghz dual core processor, 16/32GB of storage and an 8MP and 2MP camera, this 9.65mm thick Gingerbread-running powerhouse also features a stowaway pen for note-taking and drawing shenanigans.

Sammy hopes that this pen will move beyond the realms of a gimmicky accessory by including an S Memo app for note taking the old fashioned way. No word on release or pricing as of yet, so excuse us while we go and lie down for a moment – our heads are still swimming from the spec overload.
