When the Samsung Galaxy Note was announced in September, there were questions about whether this Android tabletphone would ever be available in the U.S. New evidence, however, suggests that it will be released by AT&T.
This model has a 5.3-inch, 1280 x 800, Super AMOLED display, so it skirts the line between being a very large smartphone or a very small tablet. Unlike most tablets, though, Samsung built in the ability to make phone calls.
A version of this device with support for the 850MHz and 1900MHz frequencies has been approved for release in the U.S. by the FCC. These are the wireless frequencies used by AT&T, so it's possible the Galaxy Note is headed for this carrier. Another possibility is the product will be offered "unlocked" directly to the public through retailers like Best Buy or Expansys.

The Galaxy Note has an on-board stylus, which is called the "S Pen". A native app, the S Memo, allows users to create and save handwritten notes and drawings, as well as pictures, voice recordings and typed text.
