Android 4.1.2 Now Rolling Out To The Galaxy Note II (GT-7100) And Note II LTE (GT-7105), Brings A Slew Of New Features

I have to say, Samsung is on a roll with the updates lately. First, they started pushing 4.1.2 to the international variant of the GSIII in Poland, and now 4.1.2 is on its way to the unlocked international Note II (GT-7100) and Note II LTE (GT-7105). According to SamMobile, this update brings quite a few new features to the Note II, including:

  • New notification toggles
  • Customizable notification toggles
  • Brightness slider can now be disabled
  • The ability to disable Multi-View
  • Browser improvements
  • Status bar is now black
  • Continuous input keyboard
  • New ink effect on lockscreen
  • New Group Cast app

Like the SIII's update, this one is starting in Poland for the GT-7100, and it looks like users in Sweden will be the first to get it on the GT-7105.

Samsung, The Last Thing We Need Is A Knock-Off iPod Shuffle, Please Stop Doing Things

Hi, everyone. I'd like to introduce you to the Samsung Muse. This is a music player with no screen and a mere 4GB of storage that requires a phone with music on it in order to sync. It costs $50 and is going on sale in the U.S. soon. Why is this handy little thingy going to be made available here? Because screw you, that's why.


'What is this device?' you ask?

Phablet Virgin: How Two Weeks With The Note II Made Me A Believer

When the original Galaxy Note was unveiled back in August of 2011, I’ll admit: I was one of the naysayers. Nay, I was more than a naysayer – I was a hater. The idea of the “phablet,” I thought, was absurd. Who would possibly need – or want – such a ridiculous piece of form-factor experimentation? Like much of the tech media world, I looked on and fully expected Samsung’s newest Galaxy product to be a total failure.
