Are you getting the Samsung Galaxy Note?

Are you getting the Samsung Galaxy Note?

So Samsung has started accepting online reservations of the Galaxy Note earlier today. Samsung is only releasing 300 units for its first shipments (you can make the online pre-order here).


The Galaxy Note is Samsung attempt to introduce a hybrid device, a market that Dell tried and failed to penetrate with its earlier Dell Streak 5. You can read out first impressions of the Galaxy Note here. Read the complete details of the pre-order mechanics here.

So our question is — are you getting the Samsung Galaxy Note?

  2. javalite says:

    I’ve been waiting for this to reach the Philippines since the IFA in Germany, but I’ll just wait for the white 32GB version, perhaps in a month or two when it’s made available. ;^)

    I want a bite of the ice cream sandwich first which is sweeter than the ginger bread…

  4. cxn says:

    No. 5″ size is too shy for being a tablet and too outrageous for being a phone.

  5. Jethro says:

    Hey Mr. Yuga will you please review the Galaxy S Wifi 5.0? I am kinda more interested in that one since I wan’t smartphone Capabilities and already have a phone that is not one, won’t the 5.0 be a very good compromise? rather than buying a smartphone?

  6. Johny says:

    Just want to know if this initial online offer is for the first batch of release for advanced buyers, when do you think the release of this phone will be the general customers in various samsung retailers?

  7. Mac says:

    nope… bad experience with their Galaxy Tab 10.1… poor after sales also

  8. NotAgain says:

    No. No more android. No, no, no…

  9. Sherwin says:

    didn’t get a confirmation message. badtrip.

  10. Edwin says:

    yes.. just did my reservation this 12 MN.. got a confirmation message already. Print na lang and yun, punta sa podium on saturday…

    @Sherwin, try mo ulet, using gmail acount. kasi una rin sa akin dalawang yahoomail accnts ginamit ko pero walang confirmation.. pero nung gmail account ginamit ko, nagsend agad :)

  11. KraM says:

    Yes i’ll getting one. . :D but ala rin ako natanggap na confirmation.

  12. Joseph says:

    I would get one but already have my playbook, just bought a netbook.. :| but if I had extra cash. I won’t hesitate.

      lalo na samsung.. worst manufacturer ever

      “lalo na samsung.. worst manufacturer ever”
      – Now where did that come from? Can’t find a topic like that in google.. In fact.. this links are spread all over the web..

      “Samsung No 1 Manufacturer Overtaking Apple in Smartphone Sales”

  14. H says:

    ganda sana kaya lang nasa mindanao ako eh. BTW, nakalagay at first free at Plan 2000 pero pagclick sa Smart Read and Agree First: free at Plan 2000 plus. me “plus” na.

    anyway, i called smart, triny ko lang, they mentioned meron ding online reservation for htc sensation xe. wala pa sila ng note.

    i saw a store at MOA last night selling this for 39,999php — nalula ako

      Sino may sabi? tatay mo? classic fanboi.. go find some apple fanboi thread.. dami namang ganyan eh..

  17. cebuboy says:

    NO! not another device from a company that discriminate consumers outside Metro Manila.

  18. Marco says:

    Yes! If my budget is enough to purchase that! :D

  19. Ed says:

    Also available for Smart Plan 2000. ano kaya condition nila sa wifi hotspot?

  20. poobear says:

    the galaxy note cost not getting it coz tegra 3 is already coming out next year soo better wait for the HTC Edge.

  21. glen says:

    no and no way! A phone is small and pocketable. A tablet is big for easier reading. This is not in both criteria and for a ridiculous price. Dual core smartphone + 10 inch dual core tablet price = galaxy note price.

    Another why not: Smartphones and tablets are already quad core and running ice cream sandwich.

  22. Noob says:

    Naka reserve ako but the problem is nasa davao city area ako sa mandaluyong pala ang event. Pano kaya to?

  23. me says:

    Dapat YES or NO lang sagut nyo, wala na mang WHY sa tanong si Sir Abe.

  24. wengweng2003 says:

    Konting pilit na lng at YES n din ako :-)

  25. JRS says:

    Exactly what I need. Cross between the power of SII and the capabilities of a tablet.

  26. Esbee says:

    No, I would wait for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and I hope it will be available soon

  36. jpL says:

    luckily i reserved a unit (yung sa promo ng Samsung at Smart) plan 2000, a customer service rep called me free daw yung 1 month subscription and i get a freebie daw worth 1,450 (dunno, must be a protective case of some sort)… its nice and all but i think the local smart centers doesn’t have any idea watsoever of what i’m talking about) btw, i’m from Legazpi City

    • jifaw says:

      Smart reps called me twice that I can get ung pinareserve ko na galaxy note last Nov 26 and starting Dec 1-15 daw (went last dec 2 to smart sm cebu), on my 2 visits sales rep told me that they have not receive any galaxy note as per checking their inventory. My application has been approved daw already but ung unit na lang ang kulang. I’ll just cancel my application if wala pa rin this saturday, I’ve been waiting since Nov 26 and I can see the galaxy note on display in almost all cp shops in ayala and sm cebu but its forever for smart to get the units to their centers in the country, sila pa naman ang official telecom carrier tsk tsk tsk!!! Too bad.

  37. cris says:

  38. cris says:
