IFA 2011: Samsung Note wants to be your one and only

Samsung is really eager to get its products out ahead of the IFA electronics show, releasing new smartphones and tablets and now the Galaxy Note — a strange combination of both.

The Note is a 5.3-inch phone with a stylus, the company announced Thursday, and it’s trying to be your all-in-one device.

The phone has a 1.4GHz Dual Core Processor, running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and a stylus called the S Pen that lets users capture any part of their screen and annotate it with its notes function.

Here’s Samsung’s introduction of the Galaxy Note:

The company also confirmed that it is releasing a 7.7-inch version of its Galaxy Tab and announced an iPod touch competitor, the Galaxy S WiFi 3.6, an Android device that is essentially its Galaxy S smartphone that will only allow calls over WiFi.
