The company sent an invitation to Australian tech media today for an event on Wednesday 14 November that invites attendees to "create, connect and collaborate" with the Galaxy Note II.

Unveiled in August at the IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung) consumer electronics trade show in Berlin, the Galaxy Note II is the successor to the original Galaxy Note smartphone. The new model has a larger 5.5in screen, a faster, quad-core processor and runs the Google's 4.1 'Jelly Bean' version of Android.

At the time of its unveiling back in August, Samsung refused to comment on if or when the Galaxy Note II would be officially available in Australia, only saying that "a decision has not yet been made whether this product will be made available in Australia."

The Galaxy Note II is currently available in Europe, Asia and the Middle East and was officially released in the US last week.

Like the original Galaxy Note, the Galaxy Note II once again comes with an "S Pen" stylus that allows users to take notes, draw onto the screen and annotate images and PDF files. The model expected to be launched in Australia is the N7105 version that features 1800MHz 4G connectivity, meaning the device will work on the Telstra and Optus 4G networks in Australia.

Despite initially expected to be a niche device, Samsung announced back in August that it has sold 10 million units of the original Galaxy Note worldwide. The milestone came four months ahead of schedule, as the company initially forecasted it would sell 10 million units by the end of 2012.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
