Is very nice for ebook reading too.
Best part is the looks on peoples faces when I pull it out :D
NZtechfreak: Strange, will fix the links when I get home.
dman: I took a look at this phone and had a good play around with it while getting my next phone instead (HTC Desire, just viewing it as temporary thing for now...).
WHOA! It is quite big to be using with just one hand. Even with my hands (I'm a fair bit taller than average).
Wonder if there is a keyboard in the market for the keyboard to only be in the bottom right hand quadrant (or the right side if you're left handed instead)? As kinda tricky to reach the "q" on the keyboard otherwise! Hopefully soon an entire custom ROM for just one handed operation across the phone.
Anyway, if there isn't already I'm sure it will be soon and I'm going to wait a quarter or two anyway for the price of the Galaxy Note to come down significantly before I'd consider buying it (also, the Hauwei P1 S is another hot favourite for me which isn't quite yet out...).
NZtechfreak: On the latest firmwares the Samsung keyboard has one-handed options (for left and right handed people), it also carries over to the dialler. With ADW Launchers 'swipe down anywhere on the homescreen to pull down the notification shade' feature one-handed use is a lot more manageable than some might think.
NZtechfreak: Cool news there! Be interested to see how it's received here.

lchiu7: I thought this might be interesting. The Galaxy Note is being released in the US now and when I was at CES Samsung had a major push with the unit. I personally remain unconvinced about the device (mainly of course due to its size).
But as I was walking home from CES one night I captured this large ad for the Note on one of the moving billboards they have all around the place in Vegas.
It is certainly quite a compelling (and probably expensive) ad to place. This was for AT&T
