talk lately within the display manufacturing industry that some tablet makers are looking towards putting out devices with 12-inch or larger screens in order to differentiate themselves from an over-saturated 7- and 10-inch tablet market. It seems that there is some credence to that rumor and Samsung might be the first to the scene.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear is well underway. The handset has been rolling out to various carriers with Verizon Wireless customers getting access to make a purchase as of late last week. Big Red had pre-orders open, however the general availability kicked off on October 10th. As such, we have recently been carrying a Verizon branded Galaxy Note 3 for testing.
Twitter has announced a tablet optimized Android app today. While that by itself may sound like great news, there is a catch. You see, at this point the app only supports one model. The tablet is the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, which arrived in the US market as of today. On the bright side, the folks at Twitter have promised the app is also coming to other tablets.
Pantech Vega Note may not be getting quite the same attention as the HTC One Max, however it appears as if some new images of the handset have surfaced online. The pics show what is believed to be a 5.9-inch device and confirm a feature that will have it competing directly with another oversized smartphone. The feature is a digital pen and that other handset is the Galaxy Note 3.
Samsung is introducing a new app with an old concept for its stylus-enabled smartphones. The new PEN.UP Android app brings in a touch of social networking to connect creatives and doodlers all over the world to showcase, share, and inspire one another with masterpieces made using their S Pen.
Galaxy S IV concept video that surfaced yesterday, but the truth of the matter is that details for the handset are still rumored and unconfirmed at this point in time. Nonetheless, it seems that based on previous history with the Galaxy S line, there are some likely assumptions that can be made in terms of specs (compared to the Galaxy S III).
Samsung announced their new Galaxy Note II many were excited to see that massive screen, us included. While the original Note phablet seemed too large originally, it sold extremely well (over 10 million) and the Note II is everything it was and more. We've had a change to enjoy another round of hands-on time with the new Note II from Samsung, so decided to capture some of the new features of that S-Pen stylus.
Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. According to a couple of pre-release photos spotted by Tablet Community (no relation), it'll also get a slot for the S-Pen stylus built right into its slate body. The lack thereof was definitely noted when the device was revealed at MWC earlier this year, though it now appears that the hardware shown at the show was very early indeed.
Galaxy S III with a bevy of accessories. UK retailer MobileFun got a hold of the flip cover, stand and spare battery charger and the official S-Pen for the new model. They don't actually have the phone themselves and the accessories aren't up for sale yet - they'll probably have to wait for the May 30th release date for that. At least some of these should be coming to other markets including North America.
own at Draw Something? Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note who are also fans of the popular custom ROM CyanogenMod need no longer ask this question. The latest version of the ROM adds a few more features, including support for Samsung's S-Pen, an active digitizer stylus that uses Wacom technology for accuracy and precision. You can download the ported ROM from this XDA thread - sorry, AT&T users, it's only for the international Galaxy Note for now.
