Jubilee season is set to get a shade rosier -- a pink version of the Samsung Galaxy Note should be on sale in the UK in June, available to buy from Carphone Warehouse.
The Inquirer spotted the phone flogger's 'coming soon' page, which pips the pink Note as coming out next month. I can't be sure how long that page has been lurking there, so I've contacted Carphone Warehouse for more information and I'll let you know if I hear anything. For now, you can use the listing page to register for updates.
Expect specifications for this colourful edition of Samsung's enormo-phone to stay the same -- the only new feature here is the colourful casing. If you've been holding off on buying the Note because it looks a bit too businesslike (and let's face it, it does have a stylus), now could be the time to splash out.
The Galaxy Note blew my mind when it was first unveiled in Berlin last year, and not necessarily for all the right reasons. I wasn't sold on the enormous 5.3-inch screen, which will stretch even the more supple of palms, and that
daft little stylus S Pen is just begging to disappear down the back of a bus seat.
But the Note is proving popular, hinting that big screens are big business. At the end of March Samsung boasted it had shipped 5 million Notes, and with other enormous devices such as the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3 doing the rounds, it looks like pocket-stretching mobiles are all the rage.
That'll give Apple something to think about as it bakes its new iPhone -- recent rumours point to a display at least 4 inches across, a step up from the 3.5-inch display that's adorned every Apple phone so far.
