T-Mobile's shot at the Samsung Galaxy Note

The Samsung Galaxy Note has made a name for itself as a phone/tablet crossover device. On T-Mobile's network, the stylus-toting Note packs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, T-Mobile's HSPA+ 42 speeds, and several writing and drawing apps with the stylus in mind.

Big screen TV

A 5.3-inch screen is no joke. The device is awkward to hold for some, but the larger screen size makes an excellent platform for viewing videos, reading articles and e-mail, and sure, reading the weather report.

Hidden Ice Cream Sandwich

There are Android 4.0 features on here, like NFC with Android Beam and the capability to view recent apps, but the aesthetic is all Android 2.3 Gingerbread. That's comforting or disappointing depending on your aesthetics.

Stylus stylin'

S Note, S Memo, and Quick Memo are three flavors of Samsung's vehicle for jotting notes and drawing. Templates and tools help fuel artistic and corporate impulses.

Slim profile

The Galaxy Note may have a wide face, but it hides its large 2,500mAh battery in a very slim profile.

HD screen

The Samsung Galaxy S II's legacy lives on in the Galaxy Note, whose HD screen shines brightly, boldly, and large.
