    This should demonstrate how at 285ppi you can read fully zoomed out text in the ebook reader without pixelation....!!!!

    Not that you could read this without getting a headache because it is very very small but it is readable and there are no jagged edges. Impressive!

    Simply not true. My SGS II would last well over 24 hours with email checking, bit of surfing, the odd call. My ZTE Blade last a full day of casual Wifi browsing, an hour of ereading, constant Facebook and email upd even then usually has juice to spare.

    I currently own a lot more phones than you, but let's not get into that. :p

    I'd say I have the screen on approximately an hour and a half or so per day (on average) on the iPhone 4, and it will easily go 2 days, and a third if I allow the battery to drop low. It's able to play video for the best part of 8 hours solid and it hardly loses any charge at idle.

    I can only assume you have several push email accounts running and a lot of other things on regular sync, which would cause poor battery life like you describe.

    The same applies to the Galaxy S II to a lesser extent, it will go 2 days without much trouble under moderate use.

    If you're sat with the screen on all day, then yeah, it's going to drop extremely quickly but the same will apply to the Note.

    There certainly shouldn't be any lag. The Galaxy S II has no lag (well, hardly any).

    I thought I'd pop into my local cpw today to hopefully see this beast for real and get some idea about the size and the screen. Unfortunately though, they had never heard of the Galaxy Note. The guy checked on the system for me and goes are you sure it's called the Galaxy Note, he couldn't find any trace of it and said no cpw in Manchester will have it. What can you say to that? lol.

    Props to the guy I spoke to in P4U Brent X today. He was very enthusiastic and reasonably knowledgeable on phones. I asked what he knew about the Nexus, he said not much but did I know about the Note, so I pulled mine out and I think he might have orgasm'd! We had quite a chat.

    Samsung are just confusing us all with the Note and now the Nexus as well.

    Samsung the Note would be out on the 3rd in Phones4u, Carphone Warehouse and O2.

    As we all know O2 are not stocking it and the other two places only seem to have them in major cities like London and in very limited stock.

    Not to mention the Note had its date moved many times - Gummobile who I trust and I have talked about before had the original date for 31st October for the Note - it then moved to 17th November and then back to the 5th November but in the end they had it in stock on the 3rd BEFORE the street date.

    So it seems that the only way to see a Note is in London and the only way to know when the Nexus is out is when someone sees it in a store or as in stock online!

    Asked in the T Mobile shop a couple of days ago regarding the Note and the so called store manager didn't even know it existed. Shambles.

    I've had a similar experience in a CPW, back when I was looking for Desire HD's. I can understand why some kid who just works there to get some pocket money doesn't know about the latest phones, but surely managers should?!!?

    You would have thought so, she was however late 30's early 40's. I would say she is the typical mangement type but has no idea about the things her company sells.

    When I asked about the Nexus at the same time she didn't really know much about that either.

    Has anyone seen a custom ROM for the Note yet? Dev support seems very limited :( There's a black notification bar mod, that's about all I've seen...

    Have any good deals come up for this? How you guys finding it, there doesn't seem to be much interest in this since the Nexus came out.
