Samsung Galaxy Note alternatives

LG Optimus Vu, 5.0 inch
The LG Optimus Vu was launched on MWC 2012. It is a 5" Phone but it's display has an aspect ratio of 4:3. Just like the Samsung Galaxy Note it features stylus input and has an 650 nits bright display. It comes with Android 2.3 but should soon be updated to Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
Fujitsu Loox F-07C, 4.0 inch
Motorla Droid X2, 4.3 inch
Ocosmos OCS1, 4.8 inch
Ocosmos is aiming for 10hrs battery life on this Oaktrail-based device but we're thinking more in the 4-6hrs range depending on battery size. The keyboard is high quality and the OKeys can be programmed for various combinations of keypress. Using the GMA600 GPU it should be significantly more powerful than devices based on the GMA500 (Menlow.) Oaktrail devices aren't expected until 2011.
Ramos W7, 4.8 inch
Looks like a great 4.8" device but we'd be wary of buying until a review has been read. The Rockchip CPU is an unknown quantity. Also be aware that this is probably not a Google Android device. (No marketplace, google apps.)
Compal KAX-15, 4.8 inch
Viliv U5, 4.8 inch
Digifriends MID, 4.8 inch
Lenovo Ideapad U8 (U8), 4.8 inch
Stylish. Targeted at the Asian market hence the numeric pad for T9 input perhaps. Hands-on at IDF with a demo device indicated a fast system with a nice UI. Numeric keypad appears to take up a lot of space.
EB MIMD, 4.8 inch
