A device that blends both Smartphone and tablets features? That is quite unique.
Samsung has recently announced its plan to launch its new device, Galaxy Note 2 Quad that combines the properties of a Smartphone and a tablet as the successor of the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone that has only 5.3-inch screen size.
The “Smart-Tab”, as I want to call it, uses a 6.7-inch screen, two times larger than that of an iPhone. The company “just wanted to make a phone that is twice bigger than the iPhone. The rest of the specs don’t matter, but there’s something quad in it, just in case.” So maybe we will expect a device powered by a quad-core processor!
For some who do not know what a Quad-core processor is, it is simply the unit that reads and executes multiple program instructions at the same time, increasing overall speed.
But what are to expect when both features of a Smartphone and a tablet are combined? We can find some clues through a simple definition of both devices.
A Smartphone uses OS that run applications which are mostly unique and downloadable, making the web accessible at higher speeds (thanks to 4G and 3G data Net), has a QWERTY keyboard and the ability to handle e-mails aside from sending and receiving text messages.
A Tablet on the other hand is a mobile computer with the size larger than a mobile phone or pda, mixed with flat touch screen and its keyboard is manipulated by tapping the screen either by the hand, a stylus, or a digital pen. It also includes wireless Internet browsing, GPS and a video camera with typical battery life of three to ten hours but newer generation Tablets are built with improved battery life span.
Now if we are to sum up all these, does it create something new? Nope, it is just a typical device that has been on the market already. What makes it unique is only the processor.
To get the attention of the global consumers, Samsung is preparing a marketing campaign that is creative enough to explain the benefits of such large screen phones. I do hope the add would really catch the consumers’ attention. The Galaxy Note 2 Quad is yet to be manufactured but it is expected to hit the market in a month globally.
