At IFA Berlin today, Samsung unveiled their new Galaxy Note 3 - the next generation of their BIG touchscreen offering (5.7" display). The Note and Note 2 have proven to be pretty popular devices for Samsung, and with the Note 3 they're pushing things further not only on the tech specs, but on the feel of the device. Specifically, the Note 3 features a faux leather battery door. Yep, you read that right.

Checking out Alex Dobie's hands on with the Note 3 over at Android Central (see the video above), I couldn't help but have warm and fuzzy feelings for my old BlackBerry 9000, which for many members of the CrackBerry team, including yours truly, is still one of our all-time favorite phones. It was BALL'n... especially with a custom Coveroo inlay. Check out the photos below to see what I'm talking about. And remember, if you see a person down the road with a Note 3 in hand, be sure to remind them who did it first. :)
