The Samsung Galaxy Note will be available for purchase in stores on February 5 and will be delivered to customers on February 17 for $299.99.
The American version of the device, which will run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network, was unveiled by Samsung at CES 2012 earlier this month. The Galaxy Note has a 5.3-inch display and features a crisp Super AMOLED screen with a 1200 x 800 resolution. Powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, it will ship with Android Gingerbread (2.3) and sport 1GB of RAM.
Customers will also get 16GB of internal memory that’s expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card, an 8MP rear-facing camera, and a 2MP front-facing camera.
The defining feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note is its stylus, dubbed “the S Pen”. The S Pen has 256-points of pressure sensitivity for note-taking and picture doodling, as well as device navigation.
AT&T subscribers who purchase the Galaxy Note will be required to sign a new 2-year contract with a minimum voice and data plan.
