Samsung’s official ICS ROM for the Galaxy Note leaked, not all models supported

We've known for some time that Samsung intended to upgrade its gigantic flagship to Ice Cream Sandwich, and it looks like work is well under way to do so. A new alpha ICS ROM for the Galaxy Note has been posted to XDA Developers, and it looks like it's an official Samsung release (complete with TouchWiz). The ROM was spotted on a Chinese forum. Don't boot up your recoveries just yet, Note users: this software only works with the I9220 model number, and it's localized for the Chinese market. The standard international GSM version, and presumably AT&T's version set to go on sale on Sunday, are not supported. Flashing to these devices may brick them.

Samsung Galaxy Note and LG Optimus Vu compared: battle of the phablets

Ladies and gentlemen, 2012 is now officially the year of the insanely huge smartphone. Days ago LG teased its Optimus Vu smartphone ahead of a probably "revolutionary" Mobile World Congress debut, making sure to highlight its 5-inch 4:3 screen. Of course, there's another gigantic Android phone already on the market: Samsung's Galaxy Note, headed to the US later this month on AT&T. Wanna see how they compare? Wish granted, thanks to a Korean blogger at

Samsung Galaxy Note coming in Berry Pink soon, but not soon enough

You know, there's only one thing that might make a gigantic 5.3-inch, 720p Super AMOLED phablet with high-end specs and great battery life even better: a more feminine touch. That seems to be Samsung's thinking, anyway: GSM Arena spotted a Berry Pink variant of the Galaxy Note hanging out on some non-specific internal materials, sitting pretty next to the standard Blue and optional Ceramic White colors. According to the document, the pink version will launch in Week 9 (February 26th-March 3rd) narrowly and tragically missing Valentine's Day.

Android Community Weekly: February 4, 2012

This week in tech news, we see a number of software updates, preparations by companies for the Super Bowl, and even a few official device reviews. Monday, Motorola began to offer a bootloader-unlocked RAZR XT910 'Developer Edition'. It is currently available for €499 ($657), but only in Europe for the time being. ClockworkMod Touch by 'Koush' was released in Beta form early on this week as well. It has had steady updates throughout the week, and it's obvious he wants to implement the new features on as many devices with a strong developmental following as possible.

Pre-order a Samsung Galaxy Note from Best Buy, get a free flip cover

Plenty of Americans have been patiently waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note, and assuming they're OK with AT&T service, they won't have to wait much longer. The carrier has set February 19th as zero day for the oversized smartphone - but don't start camping out at your nearest AT&T store just yet. Pre-order the phone through Best Buy, and they'll give you a free flip cover for your trouble. Considering how large the phone is anyway, you could consider that a blessing or a curse, but if you want to get into the old-school PDA spirit, you've got to have  a faux leather book-style cover.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note source code released

More source code news today -- and no we don't mean the Jake Gyllenhaal movie either. Today Samsung has just pushed the kernel source code out for their new Samsung Galaxy Note with AT&T LTE. The code was released some time ago but this new release is specific to the AT&T 4G LTE model that was announced last month.

Samsung releases teaser video of upcoming Super Bowl ad

In case you missed the news, Samsung is set to run a rather long and hopefully impressive commercial during this years Super Bowl. It will be important for a few reasons. One being that it's their first ever commercial in the big game, and it will reportedly be 90 seconds which will cost them an arm and a leg. Today they've released a small teaser video and you can see the short clip below.

Samsung spending millions on Galaxy Note Super Bowl ad

We're pretty stoked about the Samsung Galaxy Note finally making its way stateside - but not nearly as excited as Samsung themselves. Today the Samsung Mobile US Twitter account teased an upcoming Super Bowl ad, and their wording leaves little doubt that it's promoting the 5.3-inch smartphone bound for AT&T later in February. Samsung claimed that the ad will be "one of the longest in the game", which points to at least a 60-second spot and maybe even a 90-second one. Considering that a single 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl runs about 3-4 million dollars, Samsung is poised to spend a heck of a lot of money for a single promotion. They've even hired the producer of Dumb & Dumber and There's Something About Mary to oversee the project.
