Launched last year in Asia and Europe and after a very long European tour, Samsung brought the GALAXY Note early this year to North America where the company officially announced it during the Superbowl.
Samsung already sold over 2 million units worldwide and recently a pink version showed up at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany, also its bigger brother Galaxy Note 10.1 debuted a couple of weeks ago at MWC 2012 in Barcelona.
Next week Samsung’s 5.3 smartblet is flying to Australia and New Zeeland where it is scheduled to launch on Tuesday, March 13th. Australian customers will be able to buy it from Vodafone, Optus and Virgin who already have confirmed that they’ll be launch partners with Samsung for the Galaxy Note.
As a reminder Galaxy Note features a 5.3-inch Super AMOLED display with 1280×800p resolution. Powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos processor like the European and Asia model (US variant has a 1,5GHz CPU) will run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread at launch while Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade is expected shortly after. Other specs include 16GB of built-in storage, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear-facing camera and 1.3MP front-facing camera for video calls, and 21Mbps HSPA+ 3G.
