Today is December 19, and that means T-Mobile should roll out a firmware update for the Galaxy Note 2… just about now.
According to forum reports, the folks at the Magenta network have indeed begun updating the popular phablet. The standout feature of the update is, of course, the ability to run several apps at once in separate windows, thanks to Samsung’s unique Multi-Window capability. Not all apps are supported, but nevertheless, the feature should provide a boost to your mobile productivity.
The T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 update doesn’t change the number of the Android version (it’s still Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean) which is a bit strange considering that other phones got the Multi-Window feature in Android 4.1.2. Regardless of the naming convention, the new firmware brings some performance improvements and bug fixes. The most glaring issues solved in this software release are the missing events in Calendar problem and the freezing Gmail app bug.
Weighing in at close to 74MB, the latest T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 update should be coming your way any time now. If you haven’t been alerted about the update yet, check out the Settings>About section or try giving the device a reboot.
