Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Delayed... Again

Just last month we posted about the Galaxy Note Edge being delayed, and here we are again. It'll take us down under a bit longer to get our hands on the experimental little device with a screen that curves around its side. We're now looking at late November.

According to Samsung:

Samsung Electronics Australia wishes to advise of a revision to the on sale date for the Galaxy Note Edge. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge will commence shipping from 25th November. We apologise for any inconvenience.

That probably means check stores one or two days after the 25th. When it's your third sale date, better to be vague, I guess.

This is the 2nd delay for the device, and hopefully that's not an ill omen. At the very least, it's more time for app developers to make something that puts its intriguing side-screen to use before it hits the market.

In the meantime, we went hands on.



    I went and played with this at the Samsung experience store today.

    I still like the idea, it's different and could be useful but I really disliked the placement of the power button on top. It's on a position where I felt like I had to awkwardly readjust to reach it with my right hand - leading to a precarious grip on the phone. A soft power button on the side screen would solve that issue if it's possible.

    Still think I'll be getting it because I like it and- why not.

    I am still tossing up between this, the Note 4 and the Nexus. Going to wait a few weeks to see if there is any bad press that would deter me
