How to test out the Samsung Galaxy Note from your browser

Nothing beats seeing the super-size Samsung Galaxy Note in person, but if you can't make it to the store, you can still test it out virtually.

Samsung's Galaxy Note simulator allows you to try out features and functions of the Galaxy Note from your Web browser.

There are 12 sections on the left side of the simulator to choose from. Once you select a section, you'll be presented with a list of items you can simulate from that section. Use your mouse to click on the actual areas of the Galaxy Note you'd normally tap with your finger or with the S pen stylus.

The simulator is a nice way to get to know the Galaxy Note before making your purchasing decision, but it's also a great way for new Galaxy Note owners to learn how to use their new smartphone. As an added convenience, each of the tutorials can be printed out as well.
