Apparently reacting to every newfangled gadget is not the answer.
notes, the Dell Streak was 5" and it didn't fare so well. In all fairness comparing a Dell product to Samsung is laughable, but I think the size is an issue for phone usage. Now Samsung has added the digitiser and created APIs for devs but is that enough to make the product so important to buyers that Apple would need to bring the 6th generation iPhone out earlier? I don't think so.
Nah, I think that is one of coolest features about buying an Apple. It wont be absolete in 6 months. Though I have no doubt that Samsung will sell the 10 million Notes they have slated for 2012. Apple has sold how many, many more units, yea Apple is just fine and don't need anything new just yet. Yea I guess I would like to see a 4" iPhone but as a lot of you have convinced me it's not needed.
All that being said the Galaxy Note is a really nice phone, it might not be for everyone but then that's fine their are plenty of other phones to choose from.
The pen is usefull, very usefull. When I first got mine I never even touched the pen for at least 3 weeks untill I got a PDF form from my internet provider to update my connection. I decided to try out the pen function, I was hooked. I now fill out all of my forms that way. Paperless office here I come. I used to carry around a pencil and notebook to take notes, that's gone now and Fruit Ninja, wow.
Surfing the internet on this thing is fantastic, more then fantastic it's the best I have ever seen on any phone made today.
The size is a big deal breaker for a lot of people, it was for me when my firm replaced my beloved Blackberry with this huge phone and I have tiny female hands. Now though, I can't imagine ever having another phone for work. After Skype released support for 720p the 2 MP front camera is amazing now. It's also extremely fast, I haven't seen so much as a studder yet and that screen, oh god that wonderful screen, also arguably one of best, defiantly has the highest resolution available.
I can go on and on about this wonderful device but most of you will never even bother to so much as go to look and play with one let alone purchase one. I'm just so happy to see that there are still companys that dare to build the absurd and still make a profit doing so. The market is flooded with boring phones with no soul or sense of presense. This thing, there is no way you can call this ordinary.
