A big part of Samsung’s marketing campaigns for the Galaxy Note and Note 2 has concentrated on how one can explore his creative and expressive side with the phablets’ S Pens, but for most of us that was limited to quickly scribbling notes on the go and having an edge in Draw Something.
Everything Everywhere (EE), the carrier titan born from the unholy matrimony between Orange UK and T-Mobile UK, has been the first mobile operator in the region to launch its 4G LTE network, although its competitors are also going to get faster data networks soon.
We kept talking about the Galaxy Note 2 launch with T-Mobile in the last few weeks, as more and more leaks hit the web revealing pricing details and release plans.
By know you already know that T-Mobile will soon offer its customers two new Android handsets, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the LG Optimus L9. However, we still lack actual release dates and pricing details for each of the two handsets.

Sprint seems to have gotten a jump on the Samsung press event scheduled for October 24. The carrier has offered up the official release date and pricing information for the LTE compatible Galaxy Note 2. And better news for those waiting, your wait will be fairly short.
With only one week to go until the 5.5-incher’s special New York City launch party, reports on the beast’s releases outside Europe — which has already got a taste of the Note 2’s speed — are piling up. It looks like Sammy is really trying to conquer the entire world this time.
One of the niftiest features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is its ability to run two apps side-by-side at the same time. While not everyone has been lucky enough to see the feature on their device from the get go, a firmware update has been pushed out by Samsung to enable it. For those who are wondering just which apps support the multi-window feature, here’s a list that members of XDA-Developers have compiled.
