Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) Now Available For The Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2

The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is the Android equivalent of the Ford Excursion: comically oversized, incredibly expensive, and its claims to "utility" are questionable at best. (Also, it might not get more than one major release.) But if you've got one, you're probably a hardware enthusiast, which means you also might be game for some modifications or custom ROMs. Well now you can: the folks at the Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) have just released a version of their custom recovery for your gigantic tablet.

Verizon's Galaxy S5 Pre-Order Is Now Available - $249.99 With A Two-Year Contract, BOGO Offer Included

Verizon's Galaxy S5 pre-order is now available, and the Big Red really wants you to buy one. It's willing to sell you Samsung's latest flagship for $249.99 with a two-year activation and throw in a $50 mail-in rebate debit card. What makes this offer worthwhile is a complementary buy-one-get-one free deal that will not only include a free Galaxy S5 on the house, but an HTC One M8, HTC One M7, or Galaxy S4 instead if you would rather mix and match (or a Samsung ATIV SE if, for whatever reason, you'd rather walk out with a free Windows phone instead).

Samsung Develops Revolutionary New Method For Producing Graphene – Could Lead To Lighter, Faster, More Flexible Electronics

Graphene is an amazing material. How amazing? Graphene is composed of a single layer of carbon atoms joined in a hexagonal lattice – it's incredibly strong, light, highly conductive, and nearly transparent. It has been put forward as the key to advancing everything from flexible displays to semiconductors that can save Moore's Law. For all that promise, graphene is still rare in consumer applications due to the difficulty in producing it.

Samsung Announces The Galaxy Tab 4 Line In 7, 8, and 10.1-inch Varieties, All Packing KitKat And Mediocre Specs

With the introduction of the Galaxy TabPRO series earlier this year, you might expect the older Galaxy Tab line to continue to occupy the lower end of the market. And you'd be right: the Galaxy Tab 4 (or, stylized, Tab4) devices roughly follow in the footsteps of the Tab 3 hardware with 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10.1-inch varieties. And yes, they still have physical navigation buttons.

Galaxy Tab4 10.1 (SM-T530) White_1 Galaxy Tab4 8.0 (SM-T330) White_1 Galaxy Tab4 7.0 (SM-T230) White_1

All three Tab4 models will be offered in WiFi, 3G, and LTE flavors, though the mobile versions probably won't make it to America any time soon.

[Deal Alert] Best Buy Offering Refurbished First Generation Galaxy Gears For Just $99 Today Only

The original Galaxy Gear wasn't for everyone (particularly people who don't own a Samsung phone). It also suffered from limited app compatibility and a quirky interface.

That's how much Best Buy is currently selling refurbished models of the device for as part of today's deal of the day.
