GALAXY-Note-10.1
Last Updated: December 12th, 2012

If you bought a Galaxy Note 10.1 early-on, there's a good chance you've been patiently waiting for Jelly Bean to hit your device. If you happen to live in Germany (and have the German 3G version of the tablet, of course), then today's your lucky day.

Samsung started pushing the 300MB OTA last night, which brings Android 4.1.1, along with all the goodies and enhancements that come with it, to the GT-N8000 Note 10.1.

The season for Nexus leaks is over. We already have all the glorious details about the next-gen Nexuses, so what are we doing to talk about now? How about some other stuff. New stuff. New leaked stuff.

In this case, it's a new Sony device codenamed Yuga. The device carries the model number C660X, and sports some rather impressive specs:

  • 5" 1080p display
  • 1.5GHz quad-core processor (likely S4 Pro)
  • 2GB RAM
  • 12MP rear shooter with dedicated camera button
  • Android 4.1.1 (for now)

So far as form factor is concerned, the handset is said to have a unibody design and glass back, much like the Nexus 4.

If you happen to be the type of person who buys things, then we have good news. In fact, you may even think it's great.

Google Shopper just got updated.

A little anticlimactic? Fine. It's still good news, though. Especially for those who like to spend money. Which is basically everyone.

So, what does this new update bring? All kinds of stuff. How do I know this, you ask? Because I looked at the changelog.

Ah, Black Friday. The biggest (and most malevolent) shopping day of the year. A day of good deals, hateful people, and... other stuff. If you're willing to brave the all that for a new phone, Sam's Club has you covered this year, with the Galaxy S III going for less than a buck with a new two-year agreement.

From what we gathered by calling a few different Sam's stores, this is good for all four carriers (so long as your local Sam's has them all).

GALAXY Note II Product Image_Key Visual

Note II early adopters on the Now Network, time to head into the Settings menu and check for updates - Sprint just announced a new OTA is rolling out for its iteration of the phablet. This update brings a few meh changes, like GPS lock setting enhancements, email fixes, and improved text message notifications while talking on the phone. But it also brings one major feature: Multi-Window. It's good to see this feature start rolling out to U.S.

How many times have you gone through this: download a new ROM, backup all your apps with Titanium, reboot into recovery, perform a nandroid backup, wipe, install new ROM, boot and set up, then restore all your apps and data. Yeah, it's crazy. And it takes forever.

What if you could cut that time by a solid 20 or 30 minutes? Thanks to a new feature just incorporated in Titanium Backup, you can.

curiosity

Have you ever felt the need to endlessly tap on your screen for no real reason? Do like watching things turn from one color to another? Then we have the game for you! It's called Curiosity, and it's mind bogglingly boring. And pointless.

Here's the gist: there's a giant cube. Like, huge. And the entire world "chips away" at it little by little in real time. Why? To satisfy their own curiosity (hence the name of the "game").

Fact: the Evil Dead trilogy is one of the greatest pieces of cinematic horror ever created. There is no arguing it. And now, you can live all the fantastic, undead awesomeness of the final film, Army of Darkness, on your mobile. I'll give you a minute to soak up what you just read.

Army of Darkness: Defense is available on Android courtesy of Backflip Studios. In the game, you play the role of Ash (!) - complete with chainsaw arm and boomstick - and fight the undead masses to protect the Necronomicon and Lord Arthur's castle.

Earlier this week, we posted the slightly unfinished Android 4.2 keyboard with Swype-like gesture typing and pretty blue glow (which we since took down at Google's request). Thanks to the recent Android 4.2 system dump from the Nexus 4, some new goodies are now available for pre-4.2 versions of Android. Namely the release version of the keyboard and the new Clock app that Ron is already in love with.
