Samsung Galaxy Note with AT&T Receives Powerful New Functionality

With Premium Suite, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Upgrade


Premium Suite enhances productivity and creativity with new S Note

and My Story applications and S Memo update



July 10, 2012 – DALLAS – As of today, AT&T Galaxy Note™ users have access to Android™ 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and exclusive new features with the Premium Suite upgrade from Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) 1.  The Premium Suite upgrade includes S Note, a new application that enhances productivity and professionalizes communications; a widget that enables one touch access to all S Memo™ features; and My Story™, an application which uses the S Pen™ to create customized greeting cards and notes.


The S Note extends the S Pen™ capabilities to make everyday tasks and communications simpler and more professional looking.

  • ·         New productivity features such as Shape Match, which refines hand-drawn shapes – such as circle, square, lines and arrows; Formula Match, which recognizes and completes complex math formulas; and Knowledge Search, which enables the user to quickly research information from a hand written note via Wolfram Alpha® database.
  • ·         To help to professionalize communications, S Note provides templates for seven commonly used documents such as an idea note, travel notes, diary entry, meeting notes and recipes. An idea note not only captures ideas, it can record the creation process and replay it in the order it was developed. Meeting notes captures agenda items and attendees and will link the meeting to a calendar entry.
  • ·         S Note also allows users to import and annotate a PDF file and convert dictated or hand- written memos to text with the Continual Voice Input and Handwriting-to-Text features.


The S Memo upgrade includes one-touch access to all S Memo features – including typing, writing, voice dictation, search and adding an image. The user can place the widget on any of the multiple home screens of the Galaxy Note, which makes accessing and using S Memo faster and easier.


My Story, which is available through Google Play™, is an S Pen optimized application that allows users to create personalized digital birthday cards, thank you notes and sympathy notes by combining hand written notes, video content, photos, text and voice.


In addition, the update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich includes NFC and Android Beam capabilities, better multitasking through the Recent Apps menu, the Face Unlock security feature and data usage monitoring.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
