Samsung told us at IFA that the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note, with its S Pen stylus, would arrive in the "next coming months," and here we are: the company has announced an October launch in major European countries, including Germany, UK, and France, followed by the LTE version in Korea a month later. There's no mention of when the US will get this tablet / phone crossover, but Samsung's been clear that this is a global launch, so we're hoping to see it sometime soon.
