Samsung Galaxy Note tablet
On Thursday, Samsung also introduced the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note hybrid device, which it described as "a new category of product".
The Note, which is somewhere between a large handset and a small tablet, provides "core on-the-go benefits of various mobile devices while maintaining smartphone portability", the company said. The device is being pitched as a replacement for pen and paper.
Samsung's handset-come-tablet hybrid comes with a stylus stored inside the device. The S Pen can be used for sketching as well as writing, and its use has been integrated into the Galaxy Note's native applications. Samsung said it plans to release a software development kit (SDK) for the S Pen, for outside developers to create applications based on the stylus technology.
