Supposed Galaxy Note 2 shows up in benchmark with impressive spec set

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 21, 2012

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 GT-N7100 briefly showed up in the benchmarks’ database. The original Galaxy Note carried the [...]

CM9 RC2 is now available, with support for Galaxy S3 i9300

by: LucianJuly 19, 2012

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 or two or three, before the final one arrives. But from what I understand from the [...]

It’s official: Galaxy Note coming to T-Mobile

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 16, 2012

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. Let’s see… there was an FCC approval, the leaked support docs, the Win and Spin contest on Facebook, and a press photo that suggested an obviously inaccurate July 11 launch date.

The tweet is more of a teaser than an official announcement of any sort. It only confirms that the Note is coming to T-Mobile and promises that further details will come [...]
