I have been watching the price on the Note and saw a special offer for £20.50
Too good a deal to pass up :-D

The Official Orange deal was miles out.
So I get a premium new phone for a pound or two more than my current deal YEAH!
When I first looked at pricing this phone was £46!!!
I also get to stay on the Orange network which is great, and one swappable… hmm Times Or Deezer… decisions decisions.
An update on my smartphone research:
I dropped in at a couple of Phone shops yesterday and here are my thoughts.
Not too impressed by the Samsung Galaxy SII (but it had been “got at” by some kids so not a fair test).
Hugely impressed with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, I had written this one off but its definitely a contender once you go hands on.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is a fantastic phone and as expected actually a mini-tablet.
So it looks to be a contest between the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy Note ATM.
At present I use a HTC Desire which is the best phone I have ever owned.
The research I put into the decision to go with the HTC Desire paid off handsomely, as its still a better phone than most even after 2 years.
Factors to consider:
A bigger HD screen is a must, as I have found that carrying two devices is a pain.
e.g A Kindle Fire and my HTC Desire.
So the idea is to get the biggest practical device that will fit in my pocket.
The Note looks like a shoo in but the Nexus is a beautiful device with great build quality.
Also the Nexus has the guarantee of constant OS upgrades direct from Google, unfortunately the camera supplied looks poor compared to the latest in the Note.
