Samsung Galaxy Note unofficially available for Php36,400

I know somebody who’s itching to get his hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note. For those who are using the old Samsung Galaxy Tab as their tablet/smartphone, the more handy Galaxy Note is going to be available unofficially on Thursday at Widget City for Php36,400.


The keyword here is unofficial. Your device will not qualify for official support from Samsung service centers even if it already becomes available in the market (serial not registered in the country). Widget City however offers 1 year service warranty from their shop.

Anyway, at Php36,400 it’s higher than the Samsung Galaxy SII or the Galaxy Tab 10.1 when they first came out but I guess nothing is expensive for those who can’t wait. We don’t have any word yet from Samsung Philippines when the Galaxy Note will be available here.

Just to recap, the Galaxy Note is a 5.3-inch Android Gingerbread device with a stylus (hence “œNote”) they call the S Pen. It has a Super AMOLED Plus 800 x 1280 display on Gorilla Glass and is powered by a dual-core 1.4GHz Exynos chip. The Galaxy Note is also HSPA+ capable and has an 8-megapixel camera to boot.

Check out the Samsung Galaxy Note video:

  • The Note’s price looks more enticing than the iphone4s’.

    I like the size of the display too. 🙂

  • Wil

    teehee i wonder how long will the battery last. bec, S2’s battery life sucks bigtime…

    • same lang siguro, kahit malaki display nito malaki rin battery rating at 2500mAh

      • Nigel

        I read in engadget that it lasts for about just as long as an ipad/ipad2 on their review. That’s why I want it for Christmas! Yeah!

    • Jeff

      Really? I don’t have first hand experience on the SGS2, and I am considering to buy this one maybe by December. As in mabilis maubos, parang PSP ang battery life span?

      I was aiming for SGS2 kasi so far that smartphone has the best camera I know, so far. well except for iPhone 4S but it’s not my option.

  • Still on gingerbread?? I’d buy that in a blink if it were on Ice Cream Sandwich. How much is the Galaxy Nexus?

  • sinoo

    It’s basically a giant version of a Palm Treo.
    That’s what happens when you can’t steal any new ideas.
