samsung Galaxy-Note-2-mock-up

Mockup by GSMArena A few days ago, we told you that Samsung sent out press invites to members of the media for a special event scheduled to take place on August 15. At the time, we wondered whether the company would announce the Galaxy Note 2, its second-generation smartphone/tablet during the presser, especially since Samsung was said a few weeks ago to unveil the new phablet on August 30 in Berlin, a day ahead of the start of the German IFA 2012 tech show. However, an even more distant report suggested that Samsung is interested in launching the Galaxy Note…

Mockup by GSMArena The Galaxy Note 2 is the next big thing coming from Samsung, quite literally. The device is set to boast a whopping 5.5-inch screen, but its actual size will not increase, thanks to a thinner bezel. Moreover, we suspect that the Note 2 will come rather soon. As we’ve told you in our Galaxy Note 2 rumor roundup, Samsung has scheduled an Unpacked event on August 30, which seems like the best occasion to launch the magnificent successor of the Note. Now, PhoneArena has spotted an interesting entry in GLBenchmark. A device that identified itself as Samsung…

Just 3 weeks ago the CyanogenMod team launched the CM9 RC1 version, a day before Google I/O where Google announced the new version of Android, Jelly Bean. “RC” means Release Candidate, which is a way of saying that as far as they know the bugs have been fixed (so it’s not in beta anymore), but it’s not the “final” version yet, because there may be some other issues with the ROM that they may have missed. The RC stage is the phase where they make sure the software is stable. This could mean there will be one more RC version…

Because of the Galaxy Note’s rather wide screen, you’ll find it a bit taxing to tap and flip through screens just to launch an app. This is exactly why widgets were made. If you are not really a fan of widgets, you should try considering using some to make your life easier and more comfortable. With just a tap, you can launch an app right from your homescreen. We’ve…

Ah, the joy of working in public relations! With a simple tweet, you can make the day of countless eager Android fans… Today, a PR person from T-Mobile confirmed on Twitter that the phone-cum-tablet Galaxy Note is coming to the Magenta network. That’s great news, even if it’s we did kinda know about it for a long while.
