With most Galaxy Note owners having already gotten their Ice Cream Sandwich treat (including Canadian Note owners), what new software update could Samsung possible be rolling out for the phablet? Wishful thinkers may hope to find some delightful jelly beans, but it’s actually only version 4.0.4 of ICS.
Galaxy Note owners in Germany first reported the Android 4.0.4 update, but it has since reached other regions such as several South East Asian countries.
Aside from the usual bug fixes, the XXLRG update also comes with signature unlock (by using the S Pen), new icons and a new restart button. Those who have received the new firmware reported their device [...]
With Android 4.0.x updates rolling out left and right, we’re not surprised to hear that the Galaxy Note will soon gets its own Ice Cream Sandwich flavor. A new report reveals that Canadian Galaxy Note owners will get their ICS update starting today, but it’s not clear whether all carriers will roll out the Galaxy Note ICS build simultaneously.
Mobile Syrup reports that Rogers Galaxy Note units will be the first ones to receive the OTA update, but it’s not known whether Bell and Telus customers have also been notified that the ICS upgrade is pending.
However, it’s worth mentioning that Samsung Canada officially announced [...]
The Samsung Galaxy Note hasn’t been officially introduced by T-Mobile yet, despite all signs pointing to an imminent release of the phablet. But that doesn’t stop the carrier from including the Note as one of the top prizes that folks can win by entering the “Spin to Win” contest on its Facebook page. What’s even sweeter is the fact that no purchase is required to win the great prizes!

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 spotted on T-Mobile’s website, we [...]
Since it was first teased back in April, the Android 4.0. Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Samsung Galaxy Note has been rolled out in South Korea, European countries and other regions. U.S. Galaxy Note owners will finally get to join the elite 10% of Android users who run ICS on their devices, as the ICS update will be rolled out on July 10, which happens to be today. Hey, at least you’re getting it ahead of the folks in Canada.
Along with the cold dessert delight, the software update for the Galaxy Note is packed with a premium suite. So not only will you be getting features one expects to see from ICS — namely [...]
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 August, if the document proves to be real, and the first update should take place in just ten short days.
July is shaping up to be a good month for owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note on Canadian carriers Telus Mobility and Rogers, specifically for those who have been waiting for the delectable Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update.
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 treat.
Thing are less rosy at Telus, who has just revised its ICS update timeline. Different from what [...]
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 a smartphone.
Here are some of the best Android apps that take advantage of the Galaxy Note’s superior [...]
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 that the Galaxy Note would be available from T-Mobile [...]
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 network if unlocked. More importantly, the phone will [...]
