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.
