With imminent launches in the U.S. and Canada, and strong sales worldwide, there's certainly a fair bit of traction behind the Samsung Galaxy Note. Now the Note looks set to extend its reach into Australia, with today's news that Vodafone Australia will be carrying the device at some point in the future.

The Galaxy Note combines one of the largest screens ever seen on a smartphone -- a 5.3-inch HD SuperAMOLED display -- with WACOM-based, pressure-sensitive stylus input. Samsung's S Pen, as it's called, allows detailed notes or doodles to be taken on the screen, and the UI and apps can also be navigated using the pen instead of your finger. We reviewed the international HSPA+ Galaxy Note last year, and spent some time with the North American LTE version at last month's CESĀ in Las Vegas.

The Galaxy Note is also rumored to be coming to rival Aussie carrier Telstra, though so far there's been no official announcement.

Samsung Galaxy Note coming to Vodafone Australia


come on Hesse! get your ass in gear and bring this phone to Sprint asap!!!

and get the G-Nex out already!!!

I'm with Gekko on this. I'd like to see this and the Nexus out on Sprint! Then I have to decide do I want the Google only or the larger display. I'm leaning towards the Nexus.

yeah i'm leaning towards G-Nex too. why?

1. it's already announced and definitely coming.
2. ICS out of the gate.
3. no capacitive hard buttons.
4. more manageable size.
5. no bloat, faster OS updates, optimized, etc. ie it's a Nexus.

1. it's already announced and definitely coming. True
2. ICS out of the gate. True
3. no capacitive hard buttons.True, but you may miss them, because turning on the screen only has one button, and tow is easier.
4. more manageable size. True
5. no bloat, faster OS updates, optimized, etc. ie it's a Nexus. Not so true, yet.......

As an owner of both phones I have to say that I love carrying the Nexus, but much prefer using the Note as the screen is THAT much better. Much sharper display for reading text and viewing images. Compare and see, otherwise most would be very happy with the Nexus......until they have them side by side ;-)

I haven't seen the Note so that's very surprising. Two phones with the same screen tech and the one with the lower ppi is sharper?
