Finally, the long awaited Samsung Galaxy Note II (aka Samsung Galaxy Note 2) was launched by Samsung Malaysia at Zebra Square KL last night. The hype built up for the whole week has got me really excited! The rainy night certainly did not dampen my spirit. Samsung Galaxy Note, the predecessor is known for its large screen and thus the term “phablet” has emerged. And now, Samsung Galaxy Note II is here with a even bigger screen, 5.5″!

Applause people!
