Verizon Pushing A Small Security Patch To The Galaxy Note II, Likely Fixes The 'Exynos Bug'

Note II owners on Big Red, an OTA update is coming your way. Don't get too excited, though – it's just a small security patch that fixes the dreaded Exynos bug. Thus, if it's anything like the Exynos patch for the Galaxy S III, you can also expect a new bootloader. That usually means bad news for the root community (especially when it's a Verizon phone we're talking about), and it's likely no different in this case.

The Pantech Perception For Verizon Shows Its Face, Which Is Surprisingly Not All That Ugly

You know, for an underdog, Pantech has been proving it knows how to put out some pretty decent, affordable hardware as of late. Just two days ago, it unearthed the upcoming Discover for AT&T, and now a leak of what appears to be the VZW equivalent – the Perception – just showed up in a leak over at Unwired View.

Much like it's Big Blue-powered cousin, the Perception is said to be packing a 720p display and 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4.

[CES 2013] Verizon Tops Themselves: Behold The Massive Verizon Galaxy Note 10.1 Carrier Logo

Verizon has a thing for carrier branding. Lately though, they've really been going overboard, particularly on the Samsung Galaxy Note II, which had a Verizon logo on the home button. That easily won the award for most obnoxious carrier branding ever on a phone.

In Vegas though, Verizon has topped themselves. David and I were wandering around the "CES Digital Experience" pre-show event and we saw THIS:

Samsung's on stage today at CES announcing all the devices (TVs, cameras, smart fridges and microwaves... seriously). Among them is a shiny new LTE version of the Galaxy Note 10.1. No word on how much the unit is going to cost but it will be arriving on Verizon sometime this month.

Galaxy Note II Developer Edition (16GB) Shows Up On Samsung's Site, Proves Its Existence

One of the biggest frustrations of dealing with Verizon, if you're someone who likes to tweak their phone, is that the carrier insists on locking the bootloaders on its phones that otherwise would not be locked. Samsung has offered Developer Editions of its phones in the past, including the Galaxy S III, largely to avoid that problem and appease the dev crowd. Today, that tradition continues with the Galaxy Note II which has now appeared on the company's site in a similar hacker-friendly model.

Redbox Instant Hits The Play Store As The Service Inches One Step Closer To A Public Release

Would-be Netflix competitor Redbox – in conjunction with Verizon – has just released its official app into the Play Store. Dubbed Redbox Instant, the service allows unlimited movie and TV show streaming, along with four monthly rentals from Redbox kiosks for a mere $8 a month.

This is not a carrier-branded application and will work with a variety of different phones and tablets – even Wi-Fi-only models.

We've known that Redbox and Verizon have been beta testing the service for the last several weeks, but it looks like they're one step closer to a full, public release at this point.

Verizon Announces Several More LTE Markets For December 20th

After a couple years of working on its LTE Network, we've come to expect these monthly market activations from VZW. The lists started off small - consisting of mostly big cities - but as the towns get smaller, the lists get longer. Earlier this month, Big Red announced that it would be bringing LTE to a slew of new markets on December 20th:

  • Port Angeles, WA
  • Port Townsend, WA
  • Sequim, WA
  • Kennewick, WA
  • Pasco, WA
  • Richland, WA
  • Klamath Falls, OR
  • Roseburg, OR
  • Jackson Hole, WY
  • Teton Village, WY
  • Kemmerer WY
  • Pinedale, WY
  • Price, UT
  • Richfield, UT
  • Lamar, CO
  • LaJunta, CO

Today, however, it has expanded that list by several more areas:

  • Marshalltown, IA
  • Saddlebrooke, AZ
  • Ruidoso, NM
  • Flagstaff, Prescott, And Sedona, AZ
  • Casa Grande, AZ
  • Farmington and Gallup, NM
  • Payson, AZ
  • Mason City and Charles City, IA
  • Oskaloosa, IA
  • McCook, NE

December 20th is the big day for all those cities, as well - looks like you're only three days away from saying goodbye to VZW's [less than spectacular] 3G network for good.

Verizon Flipping The Switch On 4G LTE In Multiple Markets Out West On December 20

It can be hard to hear how speedy and wonderful Verizon's 4G LTE is when there isn't a 4G tower within 100 miles of your home. Well, that's about to change for some lucky folks in the western half of the US come December 20. Big Red continues to creep closer to a 100% overlay with its 3G network all the time.

All of the following cities are going to see LTE go live on December 20:
