Samsung launches new apps for the Galaxy Note S Pen

Oct 27, 2011

New Android mobile device also now available in the UK from 3rd November

Samsung today announces the launch of ‘S Choice’, a new category of applications designed for the Galaxy Note’s S Pen which will be available to customers from Samsung Apps. In addition, the Galaxy Note itself will also now be available, earlier than previously announced, for customers to buy in the UK from Thursday 3rd November.

The S Pen, the Galaxy Note’s advanced pen-input technology, works with the full touch screen of the Galaxy Note to ensure owners can easily create and consume more content whilst on the go and enjoy a unique user-interface. New applications already available from ‘S Choice’ include Soonr, OmniSketch, Zen Brush, ComicBook!, and iAnnotate PDF.

The Galaxy Note removes the need to carry or switch between multiple devices by combining the benefits of a notebook with the portability of a smartphone, creating a whole new on-the-go user experience. Featuring the world’s first and largest 5.3” HD Super AMOLED display, the highest quality display available on any phone, the Galaxy Note offers customers an immersive and best in class viewing experience while they are out and about.

Simon Stanford, Managing Director, Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “We’ve had a great response from our retail partners, customers and industry watchers alike following the Galaxy Note announcement at IFA in September and are excited that consumers will be able to buy the device from a wide range of retailers as of next week. The Galaxy Note is a unique device and represents a whole new smartphone experience for our customers, bringing together all the benefits of our award-winning smartphone technology and services.”

The Samsung Galaxy Note will be available in the UK across major networks, specialist phone retailers, key high street, out of town and online electrical retailers, including Carphone Warehouse from Thursday 3rd November 2011.
