    Rs 35,000 might be expensive in India but if you compare the price in global market, it’s coming way too cheap. 3500 = $700 and Samsung note is actually priced at $1100 = 55000. So, you’re already getting it for Rs 20,000 less. Cheer up guys..

    It’s a damn good mobilet. I have waiting for it. Unfortunately, I am gonna miss this cheap price in India and have to go for a 2 year contract.

    Well hardwarewise the Note blows the Nexus out of the water….
    The only hardware advantage of the Galaxy Nexus over the S2 was its screen and this phone has both of them beat…

    Price should be 30K or less for massive sale. :))

    pawan

    (November 2, 2011 - 7:10 pm)

    the only thing that interests me is … hardware of Note > Galaxy Nexus … which will mean …price of Note > Galaxy Nexus … so Galaxy nexus for around 30k would be like “it can’t get any better than this”

    I’ve got my model since the begin of this week. Love it, I think the Netherlands have the primiere of the Galaxy Note release. It fits in my pocket, what I didn’t expect in the first place.

    The S-Pen stylus is fun to use, but not neccessary imo!

    its cheaper than i phone will buy it for sure

    (November 2, 2011 - 3:49 pm)

    Definitely gonna buy it, its a bargain considering that a 32 GB iPhone 4 goes for 39 K in India. The Galaxy S 2 is 29 K and for 6 K more I get a bigger, better screen, more battery life and the S Pen.

    I will wait for the price to drop to say 20K. I can get a 42″ HD plasma for 34K 🙂
