Samsung Galaxy Note must be the most prominent device in the IFA trade show with a massive 5.3 inch Super AMOLED HD screen. We have seen some of the Galaxy Note’s features in a recent post and overall this is the most powerful handset on the market. Therefore, consumers are expecting for the official release of the device and their only concern is if its price is affordable.
The good news is the tablet-phone hybrid will start shipping very soon. At the moment, you can pre-order it on Clove for the price of £600 (about US$ 960) including VAT. This is quite a mighty price but it hasn’t been confirmed yet, this is just a speculative price from Clove. Moreover, we all know that prices for electronic devices in UK are always higher than in other countries due to the high tax, so I believe the price for Galaxy Note will be much cheaper in other markets. Its price is expected to be just around $700.
The Galaxy Note is the biggest Android smartphone and it also features a digital pen, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and 16GB or 32GB of internal memory. Powered by the 1.4GHz dual-core processor, the smartphone has a very impressive performance. The Greek site TechBlog tested the device with Quadrant Standard on a demo unit at IFA 2011 and its benchmark score is 3,624. This is the highest score ever if you know that the Samsung Galaxy S II produced the score of just 3,396.
Update: The Samsung Galaxy Note (Unlocked Quadband and will work anywhere in the world) has been officially available on Amazon now for $683.99. You can order the Galaxy Note here.
