It's time for another Samsung Android dogfight battle!  Aaron throws the gigantic Samsung Galaxy Note into the ring against AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket.  The Galaxy Note packs a 1.4 GHz dual-core Exynos processor, 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display (800x1280 pixels), 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, 2,500 mAh battery, an S Pen for writing on the display, and Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0.  AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket comes with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, 1,850 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with TouchWiz 4.0.

Both offer some killer specs, but the form factors will appeal to different people.  Which one of the two Galaxy devices will be crowned champion?  Part 1 of 2.
