Samsung Galaxy Note review: Bridging the tablet-smartphone gap

The Samsung Galaxy Note is not optimized for skinny jeans. You will not see a Galaxy Note strapped to the arm of a mall-walker. It is not for the meek, nor the timid. Is it the Swiss Army knife of mobile devices? Can it be your smartphone and tablet? Does it live up to being the phablet?

Samsung Galaxy Note now available at AT&T

If your smartphone credo is go large or go bust, then you might want to check out AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note.

The $299 (with a 2-year contract) LTE device boasts a 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED screen with a 1280x800 resolution, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, and Samsung's "S Pen" that just might revive the stylus.

It ships with Android 2.3, but should see an Ice Cream Sandwich update in a few months.

I've been carrying a review unit for a few days and it's pretty hot to death. Look for my impressions in a review later, but if you are wanting a large-screened Android device then adding the Note to your short list is a no-brainer.
