Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Better as a Jotter, not a Talker - Walt Mossberg - Personal Technology - AllThingsD

Check here for the full review + a video overview; for an accentuate-the-negative review, see Galaxy Note: Lame tablet, lousy smartphone (InfoWorld) and a PC Magazine review (“Bottom Line: the Samsung Galaxy Note is an unfortunate tweener, satisfying neither phone nor tablet buyers”)

After testing the Galaxy Note, I have decidedly mixed feelings about it. It isn’t a very practical phone and, as a tablet, it can’t match the experience of the iPad, which is more spacious and has over 150,000 apps designed for it. However, I can see where some folks might consider the 5-inch screen a good trade-off for much better portability than other tablets, and Samsung has done some very interesting work in making the stylus, which is stored in a slot on the device, useful.
