Samsung Galaxy Note pictures: Hands-on at IFA 2011

Following the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Note at IFA 2011 we go hands-on with the Google Android tablet come smartphone hybrid

Officially unveiled at IFA 2011 in Berlin yesterday the Samsung Galaxy Note has landed as a tablet come smartphone hybrid with a series of Samsung Galaxy Note pictures following our hands-on with the oversized device.

Boasting a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display the Samsung Galaxy Note is a full inch larger than its smartphone sibling, the Samsung Galaxy S II, with a 1280 x 800p resolution also eclipsing that of its dedicated handset counterpart.

Much like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 which was unveiled alongside the Note, the 5.3-inch hybrid device sports a hefty 1.4GHz dual-core processor. An 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with integrated flash is backed up by a second, 2-megapixel, forward-facing snapper.

Although being pitched as a go between for smartphones and tablets the Samsung Galaxy Note takes on a specific handset tilt through its inclusion of Google’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread mobile operating system, overlooking the tablet-centric Honeycomb in favour of the leading smarphone OS.

Whilst Samsung has yet to officially confirm a Samsung Galaxy Note release date or price it is expected the device will land as part of a pre-Christmas push by the Korean tech firm which will also see the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and the newly unveiled Samsung Wave 3.

Is there room for the Samsung Galaxy Note in the crowded market or do smartphones and tablets already cover off the full range of mobile user needs? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
