    an Abacus is better than a Galaxy.

    All depends what you want it for. I'm using the note and love it. A Birdie tells me there will be some awesome new features when Android 4 is released for the note :)

    Are you using it as a phone or just a tab? Just a phone I'd say wait 3 months if you can for the S3. If you need a phone/small tab combined the note is your guy. All about the size you are looking at :)

    In my personal opinion, you can not go wrong with Samsung as well as android.

    So either are rather good, however to answer your question, i think it comes down to what will fit your lifestyle best.

    The main differences between the 2 is size and weight,

    Obviously the one has smaller dimensions than the other which will verify the heavier weight (the 8.9" one is just under 0.5kg @453g), then if you go deeper, the 7.7" tab has a 1.4hhz dual core processor, where the larger 8.9' one only has a 1ghz dual core processor, that's a lot more processing speed that the 7.7" one has compared to the 8.9" one, so your refresh rate will be much better (it wont jerk when scrolling down emails, also you can run more apps at the same time with out slowing down the tablet performance), however both processors are really good its jsut one is better than the other.

    Then for the screen, the 7.7" one has the SUPER AMOLED screen, where the 8.9" only has the standard TFT screen, so here the 7.7" screen beats it by far.

    Take it from all Samsung users who use a device with the super amoled screen, its amzing and you will never go back (i have the galaxy S2 and would never consider changing as the screen quality is amazing)

    But once again, it comes down to which device will fit better in your lifestyle.

    I would go for the 7.7", in my personal opinion.

    Hope you come right with the decision :)
