Samsung Galaxy Note
Bigger than a smartphone, smaller than a tablet … it’s the latest showstopper from tech titan Samsung. The Galaxy Note is equipped with a 5.3-inch display with HD Super AMOLED technology, a high-resolution screen for bright, colorful viewing. The S Pen tool delivers fast, responsive and precise control to create fine lines and detail on the device display, much like an ink pen and paper; and S Memo, a multimedia application, captures content created by the S Pen. Combine pictures, voice recordings, typed text, handwritten notes and drawings via a single application, and then convert it all to a memo and share. An easy screen-capture function lets you save any screen, which you can personalize with the S Pen. A zippy 1.5GHz dual-core processor makes the Galaxy Note faster than a speeding bullet, while lightning-fast network speeds on AT&T’s 4G LTE ensure quick and seamless browsing. Available in carbon blue or ceramic white, exclusively through AT&T. $299.99 with two-year AT&T contracts.
