The Samsung Galaxy Note is still an AT&T exclusive in the U.S. but that’s about to change soon as we keep getting more and more reports detailing T-Mobile’s own Galaxy Note launch plans. Sure, the Galax Note 2 is supposedly launching this summer at IFA 2012, and customers interested in getting a phablet should rather wait for that model to become official, but that won’t stop T-Mobile from unveiling its own Galaxy Note flavor. Speaking of officially announcing the device, the carrier is yet to produce an official press release, but considering that Galaxy Note support documents have already been…

Bell Android 4.0

Now that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been officially released, it’s only natural to expect phones and tablets to take the leap to the latest OS. However, the Android 4.0 ICS roll out process has been frustratingly slow, and there are still a lot of high-end devices lacking Ice Cream Sandwich. A bunch of these devices should finally get ICS over the next couple of months in Canada, according to a leaked Bell internal document picked up by the guys at MobileSyrup.com. No less than 6 Bell phones and tablets are scheduled to get Android 4.0 by the end of…

Mobile Syrup has received a tip that Rogers will be rolling out the ICS update ahead of schedule. Initially, the update was pegged for a “late July” release, but an internal doc now indicates that it’s coming on July 21. Note that you’ll only be getting version 4.0.1 of the mobile OS, but at least it’s still an ice cream sandwich…

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. With the introduction of new applications that are tailor-made for the S Pen, or can put it to really great use, the Galaxy Note truly becomes more than just…

T-Mobile Galaxy-Note-1

Various rumors and leaks have recently suggested that T-Mobile will soon launch the Samsung Galaxy Note, but that doesn’t appear to be the case yet. The phablet is available exclusively from AT&T in the U.S. so far, and it will continue to be an exclusive AT&T device until August 8. A newly leaked screenshot reveals that the T-Mobile Galaxy Note will only hit stores on August 8, in time for the carrier’s Back to School sales promotion. However, there’s no price for the device, not to mention that T-Mobile will not confirm such details at this time. Previous reports revealed…

T-Mobile Galaxy-Note-1

AT&T’s Galaxy Note exclusivity may soon come to an end as T-Mobile is apparently getting ready to launch Samsung’s best-selling phablet at some point in the near future. The press photos of the T-Mobile Galaxy Note have been apparently leaked, and as you can see in the images below, the carrier’s branding is more than obvious. This isn’t the first time we hear T-Mobile will have its own Galaxy Note flavor in stock, and CellPhone Signal today reports that T-Mo’s version will come with AWS and HSPA+ support (850MHz and 1900MHz bands), which means it will be compatible with AT&T’s…

Well, here’s a little ray of sunshine to brighten your days. As reported a while back, Samsung Galaxy S2 X owners have been given their ICS treat. Now Telus has updated its website with a new ICS timeline to let customers know when the latest Android flavor will come to their respective devices.

samsung-s-pen-stylus-patent

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,…
