Samsung to bring Galaxy Note to US news
10 January 2012

South Korean electronics giant Samsung yesterday announced plans to bring its super-size smartphone, the Galaxy Note, which also features a stylus for taking notes, to the US.

With a 5.3 inch (13.46-centimeter) touchscreen, the Galaxy Note has a width much greater than other smartphones on the market today. The 4S, Apple's latest iPhone, for instance comes with a 3.5-inch (8.85-centimeter) display.

In an announcement on the eve of the giant Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Samsung said it would team up with AT&T to sell the Galaxy Note in the US and it would run on the US telecom carrier's 4G network.

The Galaxy Note, which, according to Samsung described a "new category of smartphone," went on sale in Asia and Europe in October. Exact pricing and availability for the US market were not announced.

The hand-held device comes with a stylus, the "S pen," housed inside the device. It can be used to write notes on the screen as one would on a piece of paper.

The device also captures the handwritten notes from the S Pen, which can be shared with others.
