By replacing old-fashioned envelopes and notecards, Samsung is likely promoting the Galaxy Note II just in time for the holiday gift-buying season.

Samsung Galaxy Note II
The successor to the first Galaxy Note smartphone, the Galaxy Note II has a huge 5.6-inch screen and comes with a stylus that lets you do things like draw on photos or screengrabs. It costs $299.99 with a two-year contract and it runs Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean," which lets it use many of the advanced abilities seen in the Galaxy S III, such as auto-tagging of photos and S Voice, Samsung's answer to Siri. Power users will love it, and if you just want a large screen, it's the biggest you can get on a phone.
