Samsung Galaxy Note II

Samsung Galaxy Note II Review [T-Mobile]

Today we have the pleasure of showing you the new and improved Samsung Galaxy Note II. The smartphone needs no introduction as the newest sibling to the device that started the "phablet" trend. Samsung's Note is back and better than ever with an improved, thinner, more powerful design for round two. The original Galaxy Note was odd and large to say the least but this time around Samsung refined the entire experience. Read on to see our thoughts on the new Note II.

Samsung Galaxy Note II event set for October 24 in NYC

We've already heard plenty about the Samsung Galaxy Note II's features, and our friends over at SlashGear have given it a full review telling us what they think (spoiler: they're quite fond of it), but it appears that Samsung has a few more details up its sleeve. The company will be holding a press event in New York City on October 24 for the Galaxy Note II, which is an event we've known about for a little while. However, today we're receiving the formal invitation to the event, and you can see it in all of its glory below.

Samsung Galaxy Note II reportedly hits T-Mobile October 24th

When Samsung announced their Galaxy Note II we know many were hopeful it would arrive for their carrier here in the US. Thankfully Samsung is releasing their new 5.5-inch phablet smartphone to 5 major US carriers starting around early November. After making that initial announcement we haven't heard anything from carriers. A new leak today reveals T-Mobile could launch their version on October 24th.

Samsung releases source code for Galaxy Note II

Samsung has decided to release the Source Code for the Galaxy Note II. The device has been released in select European countries and that means that custom ROM developers are looking to sink their teeth into the code. If you like installing custom firmware on your devices, this is fantastic news for you. Of course, most users will look at this code and have no idea what any of it means. That's fine; there are plenty of people out there who know just what to do with this publicly available code. We can only assume that developers like CyanogenMod are already hard at work coming up with some awesome custom ROMs for the newly minted device as we speak. Samsung has always been quick to release code to the public, and the 5.5 inch Galaxy Note II is no exception. This release includes the kernel source code, as well as everything else that makes the device tick. Hardware developers releasing source code allows the custom ROM community to make more stable mods, which is certainly a good thing for all involved. The quicker they can release stable builds, the better. The Note II, which is based on Android 4.1.1 and features Samsung's TouchWiz interface, will be rooted much quicker with the release of this source code, and that makes all of us happy.
