Samsung Galaxy Note First Impressions

Product: Samsung Galaxy Note


Last week we sat down with Ken Price of Samsung Marketing and managed to get some details and some hands-on with the Samsung Galaxy Note device and have since been spending a lot of quality time with this product.  I've been using it as my main phone, email device, web surfing device as well as media player and I've had quite a bit of experience with it over the past week.  We will have more time with it yet and come to know it quite well, but for now, please check out the links below for more information.
