The attention that Samsung has received for its Galaxy Tab line is rather mixed. Some people love them, some people hate them, but Samsung hasn’t bowed out of the tablet battle just yet. Following the success of its phablet, the older brother-of-a-phone but the baby brother-of-a-tablet, the original Galaxy Note GT-N7000, Samsung decided to give tablets another try with a slightly different approach. Imagine the ease of using the Galaxy Note’s S Pen but on a much larger screen. That’s the philosophy behind the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. How does it hold up in practice? Check out our review inside.
Despite getting to as slow of a start as pretty much anyone else, Samsung seems to at least want to speed up the Jelly Bean updating process. The latest and greatest Android version is being rolled out to the international Galaxy S3 as we speak, but an additional 15 Sammy phones and tablets will be getting the same update at some point.
Europe and the U.S. have had the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 since mid-August now, but what about Canada? Earlier this month we learned that preorders for the Canadian version of the Note 10.1 would start soon, but we didn’t receive word on the actual day it would launch.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a powerful tablet. This tablet carries a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, which make this tablet ideal for multitasking. Plus, with the addition of Project Butter in the coming Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, this tablet will be super fast. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for the latest updates to arrive. For the meantime, how about flashing an overclocked kernel to make your tablet a bit faster? XDA Developers member brieuwers shares an overclocked kernel that will increase the clock speed from 1.4 GHz to 1.6 GHz on your Samsung Galaxy…
Galaxy Note 2 release date set for mid-October (week 42) in Germany, alongside other LTE-ready devices
It’s not just Everything Everywhere customers in the UK that will get their hands on LTE-ready devices in the near future, as some German subscribers will also be able to buy a few smartphones, phablets and tablets sporting real 4G connectivity. The lists includes a variety of Samsung Android and Windows Phone devices such as the Galaxy S2, the Galaxy S3 the Galaxy Note 10.1 and the ATIV S.
Well, well, well, it seems to be that time of the year again. No, not the time when the new iPhone is being unveiled (who cares about that?), but the time when Samsung is preparing to launch a new hilarious anti-Apple commercial.
Backed by a very strong marketing campaign, the S Pen-enabled tab has been available in the States for almost a month now. We’ve seen the Note 10.1 start selling in India, UK, as well as other select European countries these past few weeks, which is always a good sign for a fresh new gadget, but for some reason one major market has been kept in the dark by Sammy until now.
Good news for Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and Galaxy Note 10.1 owners who have cravings for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The folks at Sam Mobile have gotten a hold of the pre-release OTA update of the buttery smooth OS for the two tablets.
Still waiting for some news on when Samsung will bring Galaxy Note 10.and its S Pen to Canada? Information about its launch is still as scarce as when the tablet was officially unveiled a month ago, as the company is still mum on when Canadian folks can start unleash their creative side. The good news is it looks like you’ll be able to pre-order the S Pen-equipped tablet soon from one retailer in the country.
Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note and others included in new Apple vs Samsung trial, Galaxy Note 2 left out for now
Apple has recently obtained a major victory against Samsung in the first U.S. trial between the two, but that’s not the only legal conflict in the region for the two parties. Riding the wave of its freshly won $1 billion verdict, Apple added various Samsung-made Android devices to its 2013 lawsuit that will also take place in San Jose, California and will be presided by the same Lucy Koh, the Judge of the first trial. Apple’s filing mentions “at least 21 new smartphones, media players, and tablets that Samsung has released beginning in August 2011 and continuing through August 2012.”…
