AT&T's LTE Galaxy Note Is Pre-Orderable

Tablet-phone launch date approaches

What's that? It's a tablet! It's a phone! It's...the Samsung Galaxy Note on AT&T, and it's now available for pre-order.

Manufactured by Samsung, the device has a whopping 5.3-inch display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 16 GB of built-in memory, and a 1280x800 resolution.

In other words, its specs are on par with some of the entry-level tablets on the market. When it comes to display sizes, smartphones generally measure in at 4 to 4.5 inches, while tablets start at around 7 inches.

So the Galaxy Note falls in between the two categories but definitely still sides more with the phone group. Nevertheless, it is a highly interesting phone. The device packs a large 2500 mAh battery which should provide a sturdy battery life to power that bigger-than-usual display.

AT&T likes to test out new phones. It was the provider of choice for the LG Optimus 3D, one of the first glasses-free 3D phones, as well as the Motorola Atrix which could dock into an external display and act as a laptop.

Likewise, Samsung's Galaxy brand has a lot of name recognition and loves to be on the bleeding edge. So there are a lot of eyes on the Galaxy Note. It will be priced at the now-standard $300 for very high-end smartphones. That's after a two-year contract subsidy.

The device goes on sale February 19.
