Just released Samsung Galaxy NOTE Smartphone from Amazon.de for 538 Euros

Found 6th Nov 2011
First ever post, so please be kind.

Brand new, released on Friday in UK, sold from Amazon.de for 538 euro, including UK delivery via courier. I bought it with my Halifax Clarity card (they use the best exchange rate without any other fees). Assuming 1 GBP=1.15 Euro, the total price is around 468 GBP.
I would say a bargain, taking into account next best price is more than 590+ GBP.

UPDATED 11th November 2011
Phone received on time on Wednesday with City link. Just checked my Halifax clarity statement and the final price charged to my card is 460 pounds!. Obviously Clarity card uses the best exchange rate, without any added fees. Check moneysavingexpert.com for more details if you feel like it.

Yes, the size is not for everybody, but will be ideal for someone looking for a phablet !! (phone + tablet). Samsung hope they have created a new category of mobile devices.
Remains to be seen.
Please do not vote cold because it does not suit you, this site is all about bargain hunting for products and this is by far the best price available at the moment.

Best price so far

Thank you for sharing this deal. I've added heat, but for some reason it is still sub-zero.

best price for someone in need of a mobile phone and a tablet combined in one gadget!!

good deal

if this was a apple then it would be -200 below by now.

HOT!

I ordered mine from amazon.de last week. It should arrive tomorrow.

Does this come with UK warranty?
And is this identical to the UK phone, i.e. language can be set in full English?

Original Poster

Most languages included, like greek or arabic etc. Typical samsung firmware contain the majority of the languages.
European warranty 2 years, applicable in all european countries.

thanks for confirming.

I wonder if its straight forward to change it to English as it will be set German as default...

First screen has button to change lang.

great!

Shame it doesn't come with White though...I wonder when it will be released for contract phone

Nice one!!! You scared there for a second!!!

The bold move that changes everything?

Or a copy of the Dell Streak?

For anyone who is interested I've also ordered my handset from germany. I ordered mine from cyberport a few days ago but here is a list of the best prices. idealo.de/pre…tml

This will be my next phone. I don't mind the size. Bigger is better. It's a mans phone.

Isn't this a Galaxy S II but bigger?

Its very different, it has a HD screen, can replace a PDA and has a pretty nifty on board digital pen that is very accurate. (if small, though a bigger pen is available)
I've tried one, I was impressed.

Mainly yes, it has a larger higher resolution screen, larger battery, faster processor (I think, 1.4GHz vs 1.2Ghz on the S2) and a digitizer to allow the use of a pen. Given the S2 is a superb phone it's great they've made a slightly bigger version particularly keeping the decent 8MP camera.

I got mine from germany and yes it can be set to full english although the first few menus are in German there is an option to change it. This although large in screen size the device is just a LITTLE thicker than the Galaxy s II and slimmer than the original Galaxy S which considering what it can do is Amazing. Your also getting a big 2500mah battery with this which is pretty damn impressive for media playback. Really a nice device and this time no shinny plastic at all feels like a quality device and solidly put together I highly recommend it. No need for my camera, archos and phone when im out now just have the one device and i haven't picked up my Tablet since i got this since its just always with me.

How long did it take to arrive?

Sweet phone/tablet.. just what my friends after.

What type of plug did you get?

what about custom duty fees?

Dose the price include the import duty?

Import tax is only from outside eu if I'm not mistaken?

EU, so no import duty, I believe.

Its only got Android 2.3, surely if its supposed to be used as a Tablet it should come with Android 3.2, especially if its costing so much?

Stevie it will be getting android 4.0 ICS either way so it's regardless

Classic Samsung, we'll update this device to the latest Android version some day, but not now when it's released with two-generation old version installed.

Honeycomb is tablet only so it would never get 3.2
It's not designed for making calls where icecream is. (4.0)
The idea of the sandwich is it brings together the benefits of tablet software into phone software to make a nice mix
