Filling the gap between dedicated tablets and standalone smartphones the Samsung Galaxy Note is to be aimed at a female market Samsung has exclusively told T3.com

Samsung (opens in new tab) intends to target the upcoming oversized Samsung Galaxy Note (opens in new tab) primarily at the female market a spokesperson for the company has revealed.

Speaking exclusively with T3, Andrew Glass, Sales Director of Samsung UK suggested the business minded smartphone-come-tablet hybrid will be perfect for those carrying handbags as the 5.3-inch display will be too large for many pockets.

“The Galaxy Note is really good for the female market,” said Glass describing the device as “a merger between smartphones and tablets.” He added: “To have a handbag and be able to put a 5.37-inch phone in instead of a 10.1-inch tablet is something that I think will capture the female market.”

Further expressing the company's plans to push the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note to a female audience Glass revealed: “We will be looking at special propositions for the female consumer. There are different colour waves, thoughts and propositions that we hope to unveil later this month.”
