Samsung has made a splash at IFA 2012 with its new Android products, the highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy Camera, albeit it’s the former that we’re mostly interested in these days.
We have thoroughly covered the new phablet for you here at Android Authority from day one, as we’re present in Berlin, Germany to bring you all the hot sauce from the European trade show, but now it’s time to look at an “official” Galaxy Note 2 hands-on.
Samsung has posted the “first hands-on” video of the Galaxy Note 2 on YouTube – although we had ours on well ahead of them – and the 13:37 clop offers a lengthy preview of what the new Galaxy [...]

Six months after it was first announced, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has been officially launched today. The device went through too many changes and false launches, but finally today Samsung has revealed the official specs of the Note 10.1, as well as an approximate release date.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 will be available starting this month globally, in three versions: Wi-Fi only, Wi-Fi plus HSPA+, and a Wi-Fi plus LTE version that will arrive a bit later in the year. While Samsung has failed to provide clear market breakdowns or pricing details, we expect that the price will be lower than the hefty $750 that online retailer Negri Electronics is asking for it. $400-$500 [...]
The Samsung Galaxy Note, with its huge 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen and innovative S Pen, has catapulted its way to success and becoming the world’s first phablet/phoneblet.
With the responsive and accurate movement of the S Pen, users can do a lot more things than just pointing and clicking buttons. In fact, we found the S Pen so powerful that it can provide new ways to capture and create ideas.

Here are some of the best Android apps that take advantage of the Galaxy Note’s superior [...]
One of the famous comments made by the late Steve Jobs in a Q&A session when the first iPad was launched was “[…] if you see a stylus, they blew it.” He was not a fan of stylus use on mobile devices including smartphones and tablets, and therefore you don’t see such accessories coming by default with iOS devices, even though they’re available from third parties, and tend to be quite celebrated and sought after for many diverse reasons.
However, that does not mean other mobile device makers can’t come up with some interesting stylus-based functionalities for smartphones and tablets, and the best example for that is Samsung’s [...]
Because it hasn’t been more than a few months since the Galaxy Note was launched in US, you may be inclined to believe that the Galaxy Note 2 will be launched in 2013. But if we go back, we see that the first Galaxy Note was announced in September at IFA in Berlin, and then less than 2 months later it was released to the public in Europe, at the end of October.
These next-gen devices tend to be released about a year later compared to their predecessors. By now, most manufacturers should be able to make next-gen devices even after 10 months. If they think they can add more features in those last 2 months, they [...]
