Samsung Galaxy Note

ZTE to make two Galaxy Note-style smartphones

The Galaxy Note has become a surprising hit: the last we heard from Samsung, the 5.3-inch Android smartphone had sold an amazing 5 million units worldwide. This has inspired some competition from the likes of LG (with the Optimus Vu) and Panasonic (with the ELUGA Power), and now it looks like Chinese manufacturer ZTE us joining in the fray. Company representatives told Reuters that they were planning not one but two "phablets" for an unspecified release date.

T-Mobile tipped to get Galaxy Note

Though we can't say for with any kind of certainty, it appears that T-Mobile may be the recipient of Samsung's Galaxy Note. According to some transmissions and office memos from vendors, it seems likely that this will happen.

Samsung shows off Galaxy Note ICS premium suite apps on video

Samsung's Galaxy Note is an awesome phablet for those that have accepted its size and use it daily. While still running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread here with the AT&T Galaxy Note Samsung is getting ready to release Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and their new "premium suite apps" for the device. The latest ICS leak didn't include the new apps, but today we are getting a closer look thanks to Samsung Mobile.

Draw Something better with the Galaxy Note’s screen and S-Pen

We love the Samsung Galaxy Note. Pachyderms named Peter love the Galaxy Note. At last count, about five million of you out there in Internet land love it too. But if you've become as enamored as I have with OMGPOP's Draw Something over the last few weeks, you've got at least one more reason to either love or crave the gigantic smartphone: its superior artistic capabilities. As noted in our previous story, it makes a great platform for the Pictionary-style gaming app, thanks to its 5.3-inch screen and built-in digital stylus.

Samsung Galaxy Note gets a Berry Pink edition in South Korea

Samsung loves their pink phones. If you're anywhere in Asia you can probably pick up a pink Galaxy S II at your local Qi-Shiyi, but alas, that option has been sadly missing from the Galaxy Note. Not anymore: a new "Berry Pink" version on the extra-large smartphone was unveiled in Samsung's home territory of South Korea yesterday. If you simply must have the right hue to match your lip gloss, toenails and/or Tazer, this is the one for you. Sammy says that the pink version will go on sale on April 17th, presumably for the same price as the more sedate colors. The pink version was previously spotted at CeBIT.

Ice Cream Sandwich tablet UI ported to Samsung Galaxy Note

We've seen the ubiquitous Galaxy Nexus get a mod that enables the user interface from the tablet flavor of Ice Cream Sandwich, but now it's come to something a little more useful. A user from RootGalaxyNote.com posted a video of Samsung's super-sized smartphone running in tablet mode. Obviously the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note has a lot more reason to run a tablet modification than its smaller brothers. You can download the "imilka" custom tablet ROM here.

AT&T Galaxy Note Android 4.0 ICS hands-on

Say hello to the AT&T 4G LTE Galaxy Note running on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. The official AT&T build was leaked late last night and we decided to give it a run on our own phablet. This 5.3" Super AMOLED packing smartphone running on ICS is awesome. While we don't have everything Samsung has planned in this build, everything runs pretty rock solid and you can see for yourself in our video after the break.

AT&T Galaxy Note gets its own leaked Ice Cream Sandwich ROM

Someone at Samsung and/or AT&T must be just giving this stuff away, and whoever you are, we thank you. After leaks of the official Android 4.0 ROM for both the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy S II Skyrocket, the same update for the plus-sized Galaxy Note has also appeared. You can download it now over at RootzWiki. The ROM in question is only for the SGH-i717, AKA AT&T's customized LTE version of the Note hardware - it won't work on international GSM versions. The leaked software runs Android 4.0.3, and doesn't appear to have any significant issues.

Samsung Galaxy Note sells 5 million worldwide

It's not just pachyderms that love the Galaxy Note - the oversized smartphone seems to be a hit with those on two legs as well. Samsung has announced that its Galaxy Note has sold more than five million units worldwide, just five months after its introduction in Europe. As the phone has spread to Asia and North America it's winning a share of the market that many thought impossible for a device with such an unconventional form factor - and the many millions that Samsung has spent on promotion doesn't hurt, either.

AT&T’s Galaxy S II gets CM9 nightlies, Galaxy Note and Skyrocket are next
