Samsung

Samsung had a lot to offer up this year at CES.

Samsung announced that the Galaxy Note will indeed be available in the US on the AT&T network. Bringing a new category to the world of smart phones, the Galaxy Note offers a larger screen, as well as a new way for users to interact via the "S Pen". Samsung somehow claims it to be small enough to fit in a pocket, although its size is rather large compared to most smartphones on the market.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Galaxy Note has a 5.3" display with HD Super AMOLED technology running at 1280 x 800, providing great color and incredible brightness. It is thinner than an iPod and does even more. Besides being able to use your finger to navigate, like any other smartphone, the Galaxy Note is equipped with the S Pen, a hideaway stylus that stows away on the back side of the phone. The S Pen really made it easy to write quick notes and draw silly stick figures; an artist was even on hand drawing cartoons of anyone that asked. It was pretty impressive how the phone responded so well with the stylus and how Samsung has even developed a few gestures to make navigation even easier.

Enabled for 4G LTE with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, the phone runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. 16GB of onboard memory should be plenty of room for all your needs, and if for some reason you need more space, it has room for expansion with an optional 32GB microSD card. It has dual cameras like most smartphones seem to have these days, with an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing camera. It's mobile-hotspot capable and ready for your purchase in carbon blue or ceramic white.

 

For those of you who aren’t AT&T users, Samsung hasn’t forgotten about you. The new Galaxy Tab is the world's thinnest 4G LTE Tablet and first tablet in the US to feature Super AMOLED Plus display on the Verizon network. A "720p (1280 x 800) resolution" brings interaction between movies and photos to life. With a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and HTML 5 web access, you'll see blazing speeds on the 4G network. With running one of Android's newest operating systems, Android 3.2 Honeycomb, and having access to the Android Market, there's plenty to be done. Following suit with the Galaxy Note, it has 16GB of internal storage and supports up to an additional 32GB microSD card. Accessories are out as well to make your Galaxy Tab your very own.

 

While we were at the Samsung booth, we obviously had to check out the world's thinnest LED Video Wall.
