Has Samsung bridged the gap between tablet and mobile?

At the IFA trade show, Samsung has announced the Galaxy Note. A 9.65mm thin, 177 gram smartphone tablet.

The Samsung Galaxy Note is a Android-driven mobile smartphone. It tries to double up as a tablet by featuring a 5.3 inch touch screen which can also be used to take down notes or draw sketches using the included stylus pen.

Packing a 1.4GHZ CPU, 1GB Ram, 16/32GB of storage, an 8MP Camera, a 2MP Video Camera and a WXGA Super Amoled Display, this smartphone is indeed better than many tablets out there.

Also, with it weighing just 177 grams (0.39 pounds) and being 9.65mm in thickness, is it time to consider a ‘bigger mobile’ ?
