AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note LTE on sale now

Samsung's

Galaxy Note

has gone up for sale on AT&T in LTE form today, offering stylus-loving Android fans an oversized phablet to play with. Priced at $299.99 with a new, two-year agreement, the AT&T Galaxy Note is available in

ceramic white

 or

carbon blue

, each having a 5.3-inch 1280 x 800 capacitive touchscreen and a Wacom-based digital pen.

Samsung has customized Android 2.3 Gingerbread not only with its own TouchWiz UI, but some stylus-specific apps and features. Tapping the display with the pen's button pressed triggers a screenshot that can be annotated, while there's a new Memo app for handwritten notes, drawings and clippings from webpages. A preloaded photo and video editing app allows for sketching directly onto images and clips.

Otherwise, there's a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, LTE connectivity as well as HSPA+ for when you're out of true 4G coverage, WiFi, Bluetooth, an 8-megapixel 1080p HD capable camera and a sizable 2,500 mAh battery that we found capable of lasting more than a full day. AT&T is also offering the

S-Pen Holder Kit

, a $29 accessory that makes the standard stylus thicker and more easily held, and the $20

USB Host adapter

.

With the Galaxy Note going on sale in the US today, LG's timing

revealing the Optimus Vu earlier

 feels all the more deliberate. Like the Galaxy Note, the Vu has a stylus and a large display – 5-inches on the LG, though 4:3 aspect – and targets those who want to use their phone as a memo device too. LG, though, is yet to announce US availability for the Optimus Vu.
