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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
first leaked Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, the folks at the CyanogenMod team are hard at work incorporating the much-needed software into their modded Android 4.0 builds. AT&T Galaxy S II owners can download nightly builds of CyanogenMod 9 starting now, getting the latest and greatest in customized Android 4.0 straight from the source. Head over to the CyanogenMod Mirror Network to download the latest build; install by flashing in a custom recovery, as usual.
Galaxy Note way back in September of 2011, a lot of consumers dismissed it, saying that it was just too big for their hands. Samsung seems to have found at least one customer for whom small hands are definitely not a problem. Meet Peter the elephant, the latest and certainly greatest fan of Samsung's phablet. This guy's dexterous snozz might be a little much for more standard smartphones to handle, but Peter takes to music and photo apps on the Note like nobody's business.
