Samsung Rolls Out The First Firmware Update For The Galaxy Note II, Enables Two Window Multi-View In The UK And France

The Samsung Galaxy Note II, which started to ship in international markets during the past week, has just received its first firmware update, enabling multi-view mode to take advantage of the phone's huge 5.5-inch display.

The new firmware will allow users to view two windows at once, without constantly switching from one app to another. If, for example, you were watching a movie and you received a text message, you'd normally have to leave the movie app to open the messaging app.

Editorial: Does Samsung Really Innovate, Or Is TouchWiz Just A Big Bag Of Gimmicks?

Nothing quite stirs me up like people heaping praise on Samsung for "innovating" with TouchWiz’s software features. And every time I try to dismantle this notion, I get called a Luddite. I’m not forward-thinking. I don’t appreciate new technology that’s in its infancy. I’m not curious.

Samsung Galaxy S III Sales Shot Up 16% The Week Of The Apple Verdict, 15% The Week Of The iPhone 5 Announcement

In Apple's mind, here's how it was all supposed to play out: Samsung loses in court, and customers see a bad-nasty-bad company that steals ideas. Who wants a cheap knock-off, anyway?

Judge Koh Lifts Galaxy Tab 10.1 Sales Ban In US

Do you want to buy a Galaxy Tab 10.1? No? Well, that's pretty understandable, but for Samsung, a US sales ban on the tablet issued earlier this year has been a symbolic thorn in the company's side throughout its ongoing legal spats with Apple. Today, after a decision from the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals indicating the issue was ripe for review, that ban was lifted.

Judge Koh, reviewing the issue on the grounds under which the injunction was granted, found that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was not infringing the patents which Apple based its injunction request on.
