The Samsung Galaxy Note Smartphone

samsun-galaxy-noteIt’s the S-Pen technology that makes the Galaxy Note such a fun device to use.  Electronics guru’s Samsung have incorporated all the usual features you’d expect to find on a smartphone but with a few extra special goodies.  These include a larger than most (5.3”) HD Super AMOLED screen, offering the viewer vibrant colours, and excellent clarity whether you are viewing photos, watching movies or just surfing the net, and of course there’s the very thin design and light weight that adds to its stylish appearance.

As stated above, the other really exciting feature is the S-Pen technology that Samsung have added making it simple to flip, click, copy and paste, sketch and write just about anything from any screen on the Galaxy Note, used in combination with the touch screen technology and you have yourself a pretty neat little mobile device… a mini-tablet!   Now, instead of just sending text in your emails, with the S-Pen you’ll be able to include drawings and send photos and maps with personalised messages written right onto the image.  It’s really great technology and once you start playing around with this feature you’ll love it more and more.

All the regulars are included on the Galaxy Note with office necessities such as Contact, Calendar, Calculator, Memo Book, Alarm/World Clock and others.  And of course it goes without saying that E-Mail, and SMS/MMS are all standard.  And one special little feature that is invaluable is the Mobile printing option via USB/Wi-Fi – very helpful when you’re on the road.

The Samsung i9220 Galaxy Note is definitely worth a look, not only for the business man or woman on the run, but also for those creative types out there.  There is so much more you can do with this super little smartphone that you just cannot achieve with other similar models.
