Samsung hypes S Pen input capabilities

Samsung is offering a rare glimpse into one of its own products. In its official blog, the company is providing a detailed breakdown of the US version of its tablet/smartphone hybrid, the Galaxy Note. In the US, the Note was announced by AT&T just prior to CES earlier this month.

Samsung's self dissection does provide some insight into the Note's technical specs. The processor is a 1.5GHz dual core AP chip, although the company is hesitant to identify it fully. The S Pen is enabled by a Wacom circuit much like those in Wacom's own tablet styluses. It also confirms that the device supports both NFC and LTE-based 4G in AT&T form.

The Galaxy Note is a crossover device. Sporting a 5.3-inch could be considered either an over-sized smartphone or miniaturized tablet. The Super AMOLED HD screen offers Samsung's highest phone resolution yet at 1280x800. The device uses Samsung's S Pen stylus to write over the screen to make sketches or take notes using handwriting instead of a keyboard.

Although AT&T has provided no firm date for the Note's availability in the US, Canadian carrier Telus is expected to begin shipping the device in mid-February. The US is rumored to follow suit on March 18.
