Samsung New Zealand Head of Telecommunications Stefan Lecchi says the GALAXY Note ushers in a different mobile category. “We’re so excited to launch the GALAXY Note in New Zealand. It offers the artistic freedom of a paper notebook coupled with the benefits of Samsung’s smartphone technology and services, allowing users to create, edit and share with style.”

The GALAXY Note offers a range of features, including Samsung’s own 5.3” HD Super AMOLED display which produces vivid clarity. This helps ensure an exceptional viewing experience for videos, photos, documents and web browsing on the go, with deep blacks and bright colours. The high quality screen also offers a 180-degree viewing angle, allowing contents to be viewed from all angles.

At 5.3” it measures just 9.65mm thick, allowing the GALAXY Note to fit comfortably in virtually any pocket to offer true portability.

The high resolution display helps ensure that PowerPoint presentations, web-pages, news apps, and e-books can be viewed comfortably with minimal scrolling or zooming. Minimising the need to switch between applications, the Galaxy Note’s HD super AMOLED screen is large enough to allow meaningful split-screen operation in the most frequently used native apps.

Samsung has also included S Planner, a smart professional planning tool that makes full use of the device’s large screen. The management planner integrates the phone’s To-Do list and schedule; control and navigation is intuitive, helping users to comprehensively organise their lives.

The Galaxy Note’s advanced pen input functionality is combined with the full touch screen to create a dynamic input experience. The incorporated digital S Pen can be used for accurate sketching and artwork, instantly capturing ideas before they float away.

The Galaxy Note features S Memo, a multimedia application designed to record various forms of user-created content. Pictures, voice recordings, typed text, handwritten notes or drawings can all be captured via a single application and converted to a ‘memo’ to be edited, annotated and shared as desired.

A one-step screen-capture function also allows users to instantly capture any screen; images can be freely and accurately annotated using the S Pen before being filed or shared.

The S Pen functionality has been deeply integrated into the Galaxy Note’s native applications to provide a rich interactive experience. Users will benefit from accuracy and control when editing or personalising captured videos or photographs; and users will be able to draw and send handwritten images and notes via text message, email and through Samsung’s ChatON communication service.

Broadening the opportunity to create dynamic user experiences, Samsung has launched the S Pen API SDK development tool, which allows app developers to create fundamentally new applications and services that highlight the pen functionality.

The 1.4GHz dual-core processor helps ensure the device is incredibly fast and a smooth user interface helps ensure seamless usability. Exceptionally fast network speeds are enabled through the HSPA+ and device’s super-fast connection, helping to ensure a quick and seamless browsing experience. This means that users can stream videos in real-time or engage with their friends through online gaming platforms.

The GALAXY Note will be available in February through Vodafone New Zealand.
