When the Note was first announced, the device struck Ars as odd enough to be labeled “strange”. But clearly the demand exists for the Note and its 1.4GHz dual-core processor, 16 or 32GB of internal storage, rear 8-megapixel camera, and front 2-megapixel camera (compatible with either HSPA+ or LTE). Samsung’s official blog touts the device’s the device’s S Pen, the company’s “revolutionary” stylus tool that “accurately recreates the analogue experience of using a real pen.”
In addition to sharing its sales figures, Samsung announced an upgrade for the Note. Called the “Premium Suite” upgrade, the company states the new software includes extra multimedia features, a range of new S Pen optimized applications, and an OS upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
