Enterprise Mobility: Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE Spotted at CES
Samsung Galaxy Note
The Samsung Galaxy Note is something of a hybrid: with its 5.3-inch screen, it works as a small tabletbut the device's 4G LTE connection (via AT&T) also makes it a smartphone. A stylus (which Samsung dubs the "S Pen" for "advanced smart pen") reinforces the whole "notepad" concept.
Samsung and other major tech companies have a sizable presence at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, showing off a variety of new wares ranging from smartphones to super-thin "ultrabooks." Of all those companies, Samsung seems particularly determined to make its mark across a variety of operating systems and form-factors. In addition to new smartphones and tablets running some version of Google Android, and notebooks running Windows 7, the company is also pushing a set of Chromebooks running Google's cloud-friendly Chrome OS. As with other companies at CES (including Microsoft, with its "Metro" design aesthetic), Samsung's focus is on creating an ecosystem of products that share a unified look. Hence its mobile devices, from tablets to smartphones, all run Google Android surfaced with the company's proprietary TouchWiz interface. Those products include the upcoming Galaxy Note (a smartphone-tablet hybrid with a 5.3-inch screen) and Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE (a new version of the company's Galaxy Tab tablet, with support for Verizon's 4G LTE network). Samsung is also producing the Galaxy Nexus, a smartphone loaded with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Based on the displays at CES, it definitely seems as if Samsung is planning on making some aggressive plays in 2012.
