Last month we saw an unlocked version of Samsung's Galaxy SII at Mobile Daily Steals for a cool $100 off its original price. If you were hoping to get an ever so slightly deeper discount on Samsung's hottest smartphone to date (still waiting on the Galaxy Nexus), your chance has arrived. For the next 24 hours, a "limited quantity" of SIIs are available on eBay for just $489.99.

If somehow you've forgotten, or haven't been paying attention, here are some of the SII's specs:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread

  • 4.3" WVGA Super AMOLED Plus Display

  • 8MP rear shooter and 2MP front shooter

  • 1GB RAM

  • 1.2GHz Dual-Core ARM Cortex A9 Processor

  • Expandable Storage via MicroSD, up to 32GB

The unlocked SII will work on a wide array of networks, making it ideal for an off-contract purchase, or phone to take on trips.

The Galaxy Note, Samsung's upcoming 5.3" flagship "phablet" many of you are so excited about, got a 30-second video spotlight yesterday, teasing us with its giant screen, powerful editing features, and creative uses of the stylus. Did you really think Samsung was going to stop there? Nope, not Samsung - today the company released four more detailed videos, each taking a deeper look at different Galaxy Note's sides - business, creative, social, and on-the-go.

Samsung-Galaxy-Note

The massively oversized Samsung Galaxy Note may be an oddity in itself, but one thing is for sure: it's a dang cool oddity. It's huge, fast, the display is vibrant, and comes with a build-in stylus for note-taking and drawing. Sammy is clearly trying to bridge the gap between phones and tablets here, and to be honest with you, it looks like they've done a pretty good job.

To highlight the Note's duality, Sammy just released a new commercial; have a look:

Samsung-Stratosphere-4G

So, you recently picked up the Samsung Stratosphere on Verizon and want to get the most out of your new toy. It's no secret that when it comes to getting the most out of any Android device, root access it the key. Fortunately, KnightCrusader over at RootzWiki just dropped the info on how to gain root on the Stratosphere.

The process seems to be pretty straightforward: a little ODIN action, some adb commands, and a kernel flash -- that's pretty much it.

The mid-range Samsung Transform Ultra was recently announced for Boost Mobile, a pre-paid subsidiary of Sprint. It looks like the Now Network loved this little guy so much, though, that it just had to snag its own version, too -- but don't expect many (or any, really) changes over the Boost Version.

The Transform Ultra is sporting a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB RAM, a 3MP rear camera and VGA front-facing, with a 3.5-inch display, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and Android 2.3.

Perhaps you've heard of an upcoming phone called the Galaxy Nexus. It's just a little piece of awesome sent down from the Android Gods to bring in the newest version of Android: Ice Cream Sandwich. Ever since it was officially unveiled on Tuesday night, there have been rumors flying around that Big Red may not be the network that will get this oh-so spectacular device -- but, thankfully, we can now put all that crap to rest, because Verizon just officially announced it.

Update: The Tab 7 Plus will be available for pre-order on October 23rd for a cool $399.

If there was one that the OG Galaxy Tab 7 had going for it, it was portability. Still, while the device was revolutionary for Android at the time, it was still little more than a glorified phone. Not willing to let a potentially good thing die, Sammy took it back to the lab, infused it with an operating system meant for tablets and a more powerful processor.

Last Updated: November 23rd, 2011

While the Galaxy Note still hasn't made its way to US shores (and possibly never will), that hasn't stopped this gargantuan beast from making a name for itself in other areas of the world. It's big, powerful, comes with a built-in stylus, and has an amazing display. What more could you want?

How about a little hack action.

For devs out there looking to work some magic on this tablet-meets-phone hybrid, Sammy just released the kernel source code to the Open Source Developers Center.

Uh-oh. Sounds like Samsung's lawyers heard about Samsung Mobile President Shin Jong-kyun's little statement that the Galaxy Nexus was designed such that no "known" Apple patents were used or infringed on by the phone. This was probably, to be frank, a very stupid thing to say. Aside from basically challenging Apple to take a closer look at the Galaxy Nexus, there's also the fact that, if Jong-kyun's statement was actually correct and Samsung did design the Galaxy Nexus to avoid Apple patents, that Apple's lawyers would love to quote it at various patent infringement trials around the world. 

This could be introduced to a jury as evidence that Samsung had reason to believe, at the point the Galaxy Nexus was designed, that their other products could be infringing on Apple patents.
