Samsung Galaxy Note II: The wait is finally over for Indians
The wait for the Samsung Galaxy Note II is over. The tablet phone [phablet?] was finally launched in India yesterday at a press conference in Hyderabad. Samsung unveiled the device for its parent country South Korea just yesterday.
The price of the phablet has been kept at Rs. 39,990.
The Samsung Galaxy note II runs on Android v4.1 (Jelly Bean) which is the latest version of the Android platform. The phablet has a big 5.5 inch HD super AMOLED display, and is a treat for people like me who love photography. It has a 8 MP camera with LED flash which promises to click beautiful pictures and videos at full HD.
Video Chatting is also a pleasure on this phablet, as it sports a 1.9 MP front camera.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 houses a 1.6 GHz Cortex A-9 processor and comes in 16, 32 and 64 GB memory variants. It is available in India in two colors, titanium grey and marble white.
The launch of this much-awaited device in India comes at just the right time. The launch of the iPhone 5 is fresh in people’s minds, and this is just the appropriate time when Samsung can make an impact before people make the final decision of buying iPhone 5. And with all the features that the Galaxy Note 2 has to offer, it would surely be worth the money if one makes a decision to buy it.
The Korean company had started taking pre-orders for this phone 4 days ago. All the people who have booked the phone would have to pay the whole amount within 15 days of the launch, or the booking will be cancelled and the deposit of Rs. 5000 would not be returned.
To woo people in booking Note II, Samsung is providing a free desktop dock to people who booked it in advance, but it would be available for free only if one pays the whole amount within 3 days.
What is interesting about this launch is that Samsung has preferred Indi over most other countries including USA, where it is expected to launch by Mid-November!
