Yes that is a stylus that you see there. As we all know by now sometimes it would be good to just jot down a note or highlight something. The Galaxy Note is between a tablet and a smartphone in size. When I come to think about it I spend more time using my phone on the net than I do phoning. Great for entertainment purposes.
I will wager this will be good for those that travel a lot or commute where a small size screen can start to wear on the eyes.
Highlights: 1.4ghz dual core processor (means damn fast).
5.3 inch screen (we like big things)
8 mega pixel camera
2 mega pixel Front facing camera. For web calls. Now you have to get dressed to answer the phone.
Operating system Android 3.2 known as Honeycomb.
