Expected to be released in Europe (the UK included) starting November, the Samsung Galaxy Note will reportedly be available in Australia, too. However, it looks like this won’t happen this year, but only in early 2012.
PC World quotes a Samsung Australia spokesperson, who declared: “Samsung is working with our partners to launch Galaxy Note in Australia by early 2012. Essentially, we do want to bring it to Australia but it won’t be until next year.” And that’s all we know for now – no pricing info, and no carrier availability details.
The Galaxy Note is a 9.7mm thin tablet-meets-smartphone device that runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and features a 5.3 inch Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 800 pixels, TouchWiz UI 4.0, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, digital pen with S Pen technology, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 2MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 1.4GHz dual-core processor, and 16GB / 32GB of internal storage space.
There will be an LTE-capable version of the Galaxy Note, which might be of interest to Telstra (the largest Australia carrier is planning to launch LTE phones and tablets starting next year).
