[CES 2012] Samsung Posters Confirm Galaxy Note For AT&T – Logo And Four-Button Controls Included

It has become obvious, thanks to some displays on the CES floor, that the Galaxy Note is indeed headed for AT&T, with a few tweaks. Namely, an AT&T logo prominently emblazoned near the top of the device, and four-button controls replacing the original note's layout. It may be worth noting that these posters (as pointed out by Engadget) appear to feature mock-ups of AT&T's Note variant, as there is no sign of a 4G indicator.

Samsung Galaxy S "Value Pack" Update Leaked – Brings Minor UI Changes, Face Unlock, And More

It's been a rather wild ride for Samsung Galaxy S users regarding a possible update to Android 4.0. First, Samsung, issued a statement saying that they could not update their former flagship phone. After a community outcry, however, they responded with a different possibility - a "Value Pack" update, one that would include some key features from Ice Cream Sandwich (such as Face Unlock) but which would still be based on Gingerbread.

We completely expect Samsung and AT&T to make the U.S.

[Update: Pictures Of The Nexus Added] Two New White Samsung Phones Coming Down The Pike: The Epic 4G Touch And Galaxy Nexus (GSM)

There's no doubt that white phones are (generally) sexy. We know this, and it seems that manufacturers are starting to catch on as well. HTC has a few white phones available, and Samsung has already pushed out a couple of white variations of the GSII on T-Mobile and AT&T. Looks like Sprint's GSII, the Epic 4G Touch, is now getting the snow-capped makeover that we heard about a few weeks ago, and will be available on January 8th for $200 with a two-year agreement.

HTC's Growth Stalls While Samsung Has Record Quarter

The latest unaudited results from HTC for Q4 2011 indicate that total revenues reached NT$ 101 billion (US$ 3.34 billion), a 2.49% drop as compared to the same period in 2010.

[Updated]AT&T Galaxy Note Shows Up In Accessory Product PR Release, "Early 2012" Release Date Claimed

Update: Anymode, after what we assume was a good-natured cease and desist letter from AT&T, has denied any of the information in its CES Media Alert (pictured below) is true. If we're being frank, they're 100% completely full of beans. Someone made available information they weren't supposed to, and someone got upset. Too bad official photos of the AT&T Galaxy Note were leaked this morning.

The stylus-toting Samsung Galaxy Note (or as I call it, the Samsung Galaxy S II: Andre The Giant Edition) has been quite successful overseas, and US consumers have been clamoring for a chance to get their hands (both of them, mind you) on the mega-sized 5.3" handset.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 Kernel Source Code Hits The Open Source Release Center

While we've yet to actually see a release date for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 that Samsung debuted back in September, the company has now dropped the kernel source code for the device. In the past, this usually indicates an impending release, so we're willing to bet that availability will be officially announced at CES next week.


For those who need a reminder of what the Tab 7.7 is all about:

  • 7.7-inch 1280x800 Super AMOLED Plus display (the first tablet to have this)
  • 1.4GHz dual-core Exynos
  • 3MP rear shooter, 2MP 'round front
  • Android 3.2
  • 5,100mAh battery

Of course, a lot can change in three months, so we may actually see some changes made to the specs of the device before its release.
