The jumbo-size Samsung Galaxy Note is on its way to the U.K. in time for the holidays, but there's still no word on pricing.

It may be a little large as a stocking stuffer, but the Samsung Galaxy Note is coming to the U.K. in time for the holidays.

The 5.3-inch Android 2.3 Gingerbread handset is expected to launch at a range of U.K. carriers on November 17. There's no price tag confirmed.

Samsung first introduced the Galaxy Note at the IFA trade show in September, where the device's dimensions immediately stole the spotlight. While Samsung positions it as a jumbo-size Android phone, it follows in the footsteps of the Dell Streak by bordering on the edge of tablet territory .

Size isn't everything, of course. Looking like a Samsung Galaxy S II phone writ large, the Galaxy Note also impresses with its 1.4GHz dual-core processor and Super AMOLED screen with a 1,280x800-pixel resolution (WXGA) and pixel density of 285 pixels per inch (ppi). There's also a stylus.

It also has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with support for 1080p HD video, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The GSM Note supports HSPA+ 21Mbps speeds.

There's still no word on a U.S. debut. The U.S. is only now receiving the Galaxy S II devices for T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T. At that rate, we wouldn't see the Note until after the new year.
