Why Samsung's Galaxy Note Sings a Happy Tune
NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- Businesses take note. The ugly noise about the Samsung Galaxy Note is not as grim as it sounds.
Last week AT&T(T) and Samsung began the pre-release hype for the companies' latest mobile thingie: the Galaxy Note -- in pre-order for $299 with a two-year contract.

Half-tablet and half-smartphone, this 6.5-inch overall diagonal, LTE-enabled, Android-powered "smartlet" or "tabphone," or whatever you want to call this hybrid device, aims to be a mobile user's ultimate weapon -- big enough to interact with, small enough to carry. Samsung clearly lost most of the more consumer-oriented media, though. Reviewers sounded off that for average users the Note is simultaneously too big to be a phone and too small to be a tablet.
While that is probably true for consumers, for those of us who make our livings from our mobile devices, the Note not only does not strike a sour tone; for businesses this device carries a serious tune.
