In the past few months, Korean manufacturer, Samsung has been in a really great mood. Its most anticipated “Next Galaxy” S3 phone has been sold over 30 million units since its first launch. And that is a really huge achievement for this company. As a matter of fact, this is the biggest achievement that Samsung has ever had so far in its history in cell phone industry.
Yeah, 30 million units sold for just one model smartphone is something that never happened to this company in the past.
And amazingly, besides GALAXY S III, Samsung also has another bullet to shot at its rivals in smartphone market, of course, the sequel of its most popular phablet ever, Samsung GALAXY Note II, which also has been doing such an incredible job in the smartphone market.
Few weeks ago, the report about Samsung GALAXY Note II just surfaced to the tech community recently. It said that the “Note 2” has been sold around 3 million units globally since its first debut.
But now, the amount units sold of this device apparently is getting bigger than before. According to the most recent report, Samsung GALAXY Note II now has been sold for 5 million units worldwide. And this again is really huge considering that this device was just launched around 2 months ago, September to be exact.
The holiday season is coming even closer now. And as usual, in this happy holiday, many people will be craving to buy presents for their family, friends, loved on or themselves for sure.
So if Samsung could keep the positive trend of Samsung GALAXY Note II along with GALAXY S3 consistently, then I will not be shocked if both devices will be selling even more units in the market. Besides, in Android market, Samsung GALAXY Note II and GALAXY S III are 2 insanely popular devices, similar with the popularity that iPhone has in iOS community.
Meanwhile, recently, Samsung just rolled out the new ad for its new pride phablet, Samsung GALAXY Note II. Check this out!
As 2 pretty old devices, Samsung GALAXY SII and GALAXY Note definitely still deserve to get the sweet love of Android Jelly Bean, right? Of course they are. Thee 2 devices have contributed a lot in building such a great reputation for Samsung until now.
So Samsung will never forget the existence of them, especially the owners. And therefore, Samsung promises to you that in the near upcoming months, Samsung will roll out the Jelly Bean updates for Samsung GALAXY Note and GALAXY S II.
Unfortunately, this waiting will take a little while because according to the recent report, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates for Samsung GALAXY Note and GALAXY S II will be delayed by Samsung for next year. This news actually can be a bit bummer because Samsung had already promised earlier that the Jelly Bean updates for theses 2 devices would start rolling out around December.
Luckily, we won’t wait for such a long time because 2013 is coming even closer and closer now. So before saying “Sayonara” to the Ice Cream Sandwich, why don’t you just enjoy this Android ICS experience at the fullest before preparing to install the new Jelly Bean on your device, right?
Just a couple of days ago, the launch dates of Samsung GALAXY Note II in European countries have been released to the public, with the countries like Italy, Germany, France, UK and Netherlands are planned to receive the units in the coming days. Well apparently, it’s not just people in Europe that will be able to buy this giant phone in the near future as the latest report suggest that Samsung GALAXY Note II will also hit the market in Canada.
According to that report, some Canadian carriers, TELUS, WIND and Mobilicity have all confirmed regarding the arrival of Samsung GALAXY Note II, while the carriers like Rogers and Bell are still tight-lipped about the possibility of the Note’s sequel to come to their stores in the near future. Meanwhile, in order to welcome Samsung GALAXY Note II, TELUS has also created a landing page for the device on its website. However, that page cannot be accessible for now by the people in the US.
In one of the European countries, UK, Samsung GALAXY Note II reportedly will be priced around 546 GBP or equal to $886 USD in the first launch. Two of the US carriers, AT&T will start accepting the orders of this device on October 21st, while U.S Cellular is said will price this giant phone for $299.99 with a 2-year contract attached.
I know all of you here just can’t wait for much longer to get the hands-on of this device as soon as possible. But October is coming really closer right now. So be patient guys!
Well, if you are currently looking for computer mouse for your laptop, netbook or even your Windows 8 tablets, then you may want to check out the ergonomic mice from Goldtouch. For those of you who haven’t heard about this company, Goldtouch is one of the best sources for consumers when looking for accessories for their beloved computers or laptop.
Goldtouch has many things to offer for computer, tablet and laptop users out there, such as:
- Wrists Rests,
- Numeric Keyboards,
- Bundles and Ergo Suites,
- Adjustable Keyboards,
- Laptop Stands
- and the most importantly, ergonomic computer mice of course.
What makes Goldtouch different than any other rivals on the market is that Goldtouch always puts human aspect as the top priority when making its products. And that can be seen directly on one of Goldtouch computer accessory products, ergonomic computer mice.
Usually, users have their own favorite computer mouse. Not all people use the same type of mouse. Some of them like a smaller mouse because maybe their hands are not big. On the other hand, there are also other people who happen to have a giant hand but love to use a smaller mouse. And that is the aspect that Goldtouch wants to tag on all of its products.
Goldtouch offers many great quality ergonomic computer mice in wide range of sizes, styles and colors. The good thing that I really like about Goldtouch products is that each Goldtouch computer mice has its own distinctive and unique design compared to other rivals.
And that reflects to the unique feel and experience when being used by every different user, which is a great thing because if every user can have their own favorite computer mouse that fits perfectly with their needs and also their taste, then that will result to the increasing of productivity, creativity, experience and satisfaction when using their computers.
I also really like how Goldtouch put more efforts in making its computer mice better in build quality because most of affordable mouse on the market today tend to break easily after several months of usage. And that really sucks, especially when you’re on the urgent needs to do your home work or job.
So if you’re still looking for great quality computer mouse that can bring you more comfortable experience when using your computer or laptop, then Goldtouch ergonomic mice can be the best solution for that.
What really matters from a smartphone is definitely its network or carrier that provides the cellular service to your device, i.e. internet, phone call or text messages.
That’s why, doing a cellular phone plans comparison should be in the second position of your to-do list after buying a new smartphone.
|Popular carriers in the US|
Cellular phone plans comparison must be done thoroughly according to your specific daily needs and personality. In this process, you will conduct a comparison of carrier plans for every aspect that you would like to use on your smartphone in daily basis.
For example, let’s say you are a type of user who really likes to surf the web. You also happen to like downloading the latest contents or apps directly from your smartphone. And then, you do a cellular phone plans comparison. So the best carrier that will perfectly suit your needs is definitely the one that provides internet data at really low price per month. However, that means, you will also sacrifice other things in that carrier by paying more for phone call and text messages usages for every month.
Well, if you’re still having a little problem conducting cellular phone plans comparison by yourself, below are 5 awesome tips that you might want to execute if you want to know which carrier is the best for you and your smartphone. Enjoy!
Most of smartphone users on this planet consider internet as the most important need for their smartphones. Without it, they absolutely can’t surf the web, watch online videos, read news or Twitter updates, downloading apps and many more.
Therefore, if you’re a type of user who spends most of your time everyday in internet world via your smartphone, then it’s best for you to calculate your monthly usage of internet data. You must know exactly about your monthly internet usage with your own personal estimation. How many MB or GB of internet data that you usually use per month?
After getting the number, then you can choose which carrier that has the best price for internet data. However, it’s also important for you to read reviews from other people about the connectivity speed of that carrier service because there is a carrier that provides low price internet data plans, but its internet speed really sucks.
On the other hand, if you’re kind of user that loves having a deep conversation with your own friends or family, then you might want to make a cellular phone plans comparison about which carrier has the best price for your hobby.
However, it’s worth noting that usually carrier will put much heavier cost on phone call plan because it might be the one that customers will always use daily, although not as often as internet usage. Therefore, before making a decision about which carrier that will satisfy your need for phone call, you really need to be sure that you’re gonna use it often per month.
Meanwhile, if you’re type of user who loves texting other people, then you might want to put this need in the top priority when choosing which carrier is perfect for your smartphone and your texting hobby. Thankfully, most of carriers provide good low price tags on text message plans because this is the simplest service that carrier can provide to its subscribers.
However, again, before choosing which carrier is perfect for you, you also need to be sure that you’re type of person that will use this service very often for a full month. This is really important to know because not all people like to send SMS where they can call the actual people with their phones in order to have their message understood perfectly, especially for people with a big budget.
After knowing the exact number for each usage in one full month, now you can proceed to your next cellular phone plans comparison regarding which carrier can provide the most effective plans for you. Usually, carriers will wrap some of their services into a more cost effective plan that suits your needs.
For example, if you use internet really often per month and you also happen to like calling people to have a long and meaningful conversation, then there are some carriers that can give you the best monthly price for those 2 needs. However, if you like using internet and text message on your smartphone, then you can snatch the plans that can give everything you need in a good monthly price. The key is to make some pros and cons about which services you will always use and which ones are not really important.
The last important thing when making cellular phone plans comparison is to analyze your monthly usage of internet data for downloading apps or contents directly via your smartphone. Most of users like playing apps or games or reading, watching contents on their smartphones. No argue to that. And I bet you are also one of them, right?
There are 2 ways of downloading contents to your phone. One is directly from your smartphone and the other one is from your PC then you sync the contents to your smartphone.
This information is really important to know because contents on either iTunes, Google Play or Windows Marketplace have a big data size. And that means, you’re gonna use a hell of a lot internet data per month on your smartphone if you love downloading contents per month. Therefore, if you’re type of user who likes downloading contents directly on your smartphone, then you must find which carrier that provides the lowest price of internet data plans per month.
Well, yeah, those are my 5 tips of making cellular phone plans comparison in order to find the best carrier that can perfectly fit with your monthly needs. However, the final decision will come down to you because you are the one that will use that carrier service on your own smartphone.
I think the best advice for you is to read other people’s reviews about each carrier that you’re gonna choose on your smartphone. By learning from other people’s experience, not only you can get the best and suitable carrier that will fit perfectly to your needs, you can also save your money on somewhere else like buying other accessories for your phone that can surely enhance your phone functionality.
Hey guys and gals! If the earlier news about the arrival of LG Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.7 already made you jump from your bed while drooling, then this might even made you shocked at the very deepest soul.
Recently, the rumor about Samsung GALAXY Note III just surfaced once again (for the several times).
If previously, we’ve already heard that Samsung will increase the screen of Samsung GALAXY Note III to almost 6-inch (an upgrade from 5.5-inch on Note II and 5.3-inch on Note 1), then this time, word has it that Samsung will do more than that.
According to multiple reports, Samsung GALAXY Note III will likely be equipped with specifically 6.3-inch screen, which makes it one step closer to being called as tablet (although Samsung already rolled out the 10.1-inch model of its Note family, which obviously is a tablet, duh!).
And not only that, besides an upgrade to 6.3-inch screen, the source also claims that Note II’s sequel will be injected with Samsung’s latest homemade Exynos 5 Octa processor, which has 8-core CPU, with 4-core handling the heavy tasks like gaming, while the other 4-core taking care of the lighter stuff like web browsing, music playing, etc.
If this rumor to be true, then Samsung GALAXY Note has stepped up its game to the next level from old-phablet niche to the new one (thablet maybe?), competing head-to-head and neck-to-neck with other 6-inch devices like Huawei Ascend Mate that comes with a 6.1-inch screen.
The decision of Samsung to level up the screen size of Note III seems reasonable because in 2013, now most of smartphones have already entered the trend of 5-inch 1080p smartphone market.
So if Samsung still uses 5.5-inch screen on Note III, then it will absolutely make this device lose its exclusivity that it used to enjoy in the 5.5-inch niche market.
Not to mention, it will also make it harder for GALAXY Note III to monopolize the market because now competition is becoming much fiercer than before as many phone makers will altogether make 5-inch HD smartphones to the market, which nears the screen size of Note III.
But in my opinion, and I believe many of you also agree that 6-inch screen is way too large for smartphone. And this will surely make it difficult for us if we want to put it in our standard pocket.
However, you don’t need to worry anything about that, because if Samsung wants to increase the screen size of Note III to almost 6.3-inches, then Samsung can easily do that by reducing the bezels around the screen.
With this method, then Samsung GALAXY Note III can still have much bigger screen than predecessor without increasing the size of the device. I think we already know about this, right?
Anyway, if this rumor really comes to fruition, then it’s really obvious that besides capturing the sales in phablet market, Samsung also wants to target the audience in 7-inch tablet market (not to mention the 10-inch tablet market when it launch the 10.1-inch model of Note III), considering that 6.3-inch screen is not really far from 7-inch screen, right?
And this will be like the 7-inch Google Nexus 7 that competes against 7.9-inch iPad mini (although I have a sense that the new Nexus 7.7 will likely use 7.7-inch screen in order to match the 7.9-inch screen on iPad mini).
As for the software sector, then it’s really no-brainer that Samsung GALAXY Note III will come with Android 5 Key Lime Pie out of the box since Google will possibly roll out this Android version at the next I/O conference later this mid-May.
The other thing that really makes me excited with the arrival of Note III is absolutely the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa that will power this device. At the recent CES 2013 in Vegas, Samsung has already showcased this new processor to the public.
In fact, Samsung decided to use Need for Speed: Most Wanted (mobile game version) as the best way to describe how powerful this chip in providing maximum graphics of that game, not to mention its CPU performance that made the game run extremely smoothly.
But something that can be so interesting to see is that besides Samsung Exynos 5 Octa that obviously will power most of Samsung’s new devices, the announcement of Tegra 4 SoC will also make it many tech enthusiast curious about which one that will bring the best performance to the devices that use them.
And we’ve already seen earlier how insane the graphics that Tegra 4 could deliver on the new Dead Trigger 2 game when being demoed by NVIDIA at CES 2013, which I think looked more impressive graphically than when Samsung showcased its Exynos 5 Octa with Need for Speed: Most Wanted.
But many believe that even though Tegra 4 brings a staggering 72-core GPU to the table, it doesn’t mean that this NVIDIA homemade chip will easily beat the performance of Samsung own chip.
In fact, I’ve heard that on the GLBenchmark test conducted few days ago, it showed how Tegra 4 performance still couldn’t beat the PowerVR SGX GPU on Apple A6X chip on iPad.
Luckily, that test was still arguable given that Tegra 4 SoC was run not on the tablet/smartphone that will arrive in market, while A6X chip was run on the actual iPad 4 when they were being benchmark-tested. So Tegra 4 might be even faster than that.
Hopefully, this report will come to realization. Whether, Samsung’s brave decision to expand its Note III’s screen to 6.3-inches will give a bad result in the market or not, having 6.3-inch smartphone will likely become the new trend in 2013.
And you must also remember that, by increasing the screen size of Note III, it doesn’t mean that Note III will be even bigger than Note II because Samsung can just increase the screen easily by reducing the bezels. So I believe Samsung GALAXY Note III will remain as a popular device in the market in 2013.
What do you think?
Earlier, the rumors about new Nexus model from LG went viral around the phone community out of nowhere. That report actually seemed a bit difficult to trust given that LG just launched Google Nexus 4 not really time ago.
To remind you, this smartphone was unveiled at the first time to the public when Hurricane Sandy was making a chaos in the States. And the rumor is also a bit confusing to trust because LG then denied it by saying that the rumors are “unfounded”.
"Through our collaboration with Google, we launched the LG Nexus 4 smartphone. This is the first of many devices to come from our growing partnership with this very selective company." – James FisherBut if the Senior Vice President of LG Electronics, James Fisher was the one that shot that rumor to the public, then there is nothing we can do except to nod along and started guessing about when that new Nexus model will be showcased by Google and what are the specs that this device will come with.
Anyway, according to the most recent news, the rumors about new Nexus model are now starting to shape up into one tangible report that is sort of believable because it now has much more details than the previous one, especially with the specs of this phone.
It's believed that at the next Google I/O conference in mid-May, this search engine giant is predicted to unveil these 2 LG’s Nexus devices to the attendees and they will be the sequels of Nexus 4 and Nexus 7.
Okay, everyone, (drum roll) I’ll introduce you to Google Nexus 5 and Google Nexus 7.7!!
Yeah, that’s right. The first one,
Google Nexus 5 is said will have:
a 5-inch Full HD screen (shocked!!),
NVIDIA’s latest Tegra 4 processor (this, I’m really shocked because I thought this phone would use Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800-series),
- 2GB of RAM,
- 13MP butt-facing camera,
- 3MP front-facing camera to do video calling or self portrait (or maybe, you want to take photos backwardly, who knows),
- 8GB/16GB of internal storage
- and the latest Android build version 5.0 out of the box.
And for the price, again, I’m really surprised to hear this. Apparently, for the 8GB model of Nexus 5, Google will dare to price this insanely sophisticated smartphone for just $299 (according to the source).
I know, I know, how Google sells Nexus 5 will be similar like when selling Nexus 7 at just $199, where Google makes money by selling contents on Google Play Store.
However, I just think that if Nexus 4 doesn’t deserve to be priced for $299, then it will be ridiculous for me if the much much more sophisticated Nexus 5 will be priced at that same price tag. I think, Google is so generous.
I will not surprise if I hear the news that “Google Nexus 5 has sold out within less than a day, or 24 minutes” when this device officially launches on the Google Play Store.
I believe that (maybe) once again, LG will only supply low-quantity of Nexus 5 units for Google on Play Store. And then, sell it at “appropriate” price tag outside Google’s app market (retailers or carriers).
Anyway, for the second device is Google Nexus 7.7, which not so surprisingly, is the sequel of Google Nexus 7 from Asus. But surprisingly, instead of Asus, the source believes that this tablet will also be assembled-slash-manufactured by LG.
Google Nexus 7.7 is predicted to have much better screen specs than the predecessor, with the resolution of 1920x1200 pixels and pixel density of 294ppi supporting this screen. I don’t know why Google will name it as Nexus 7.7. Maybe the screen will be increased to 7.7-inches in order to combat iPad mini’s screen, which is 7.9-inches.
But anyway, this Google Nexus 7.7 will be armed with Tegra 4 quad-core SoC (which has 72-core GPU by the way) and 8GB storage for the smaller model. And the great news is, this tablet now will have 2 HD cameras on the front and back, unlike Google Nexus 7 that only has front-facing camera.
And the most importantly, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie will come pre-installed on this “beauty and the beast” tablet.
For some of you, maybe the news about LG handling the Google Nexus 7.7, instead of Asus, really surprises you, right? Well, don’t be, because recently, at CES in Vegas, LG actually has already showcased its new 7-inch tablet with the same exact screen specs as this rumored Google Nexus 7.7.
In my opinion, the reason why Google picks LG instead of Asus to build this Nexus 7.7 is maybe (sorry, I have used a lot of “maybes” lately because I’m not an “analyst”) because LG can provide 2 HD cameras on this tablet but can still maintain the low-price that Google asks for (allegedly $199), while on the other hand, as we’ve already heard before, Asus could only give 1 camera for Nexus 7 tablet in order to maintain the price at $199.
I don’t mind if LG is the one that Google assigns to handle Google Nexus 7.7 as long as LG can build this tablet with sexy design and powerful screen, just like on Google Nexus 4.
But one thing that really makes me excited is definitely the Tegra 4 SoC that will power these new Nexus devices. This tablet will absolutely be a beast for gaming.
Last but not least, I just hope that Google also makes the 3G-enabled model of Nexus 7.7 or even 4G, at the same time when Google launches the Wi-Fi model to the market. I believe this will sell like crazy just like when Google rolled out the 3G-enabled Nexus 7 to the market that became sold out within such a short time.

I think it’s really amazing to see how LG has slowly emerged from a mediocre phone maker with mediocre smartphones into a new big hit in smartphone market. Earlier, we’ve already heard many reports saying that LG Optimus LTE series has sold like hotcakes in the market, especially in LG’s homeland Korea.
Recently, LG’s latest, one of the latest flagships called LG Optimus G, reportedly has made an outstanding impact in the market by selling almost 1 million units in just less than 4 months, since its first debut in September.
For those of you who just officially met with LG Optimus G, then let me introduce you to this powerful device. LG Optimus G is a 5-inch smartphone supporting True HD IPS+ display and some other jaw-dropping specs on it. And thanks to its recent success of selling 1 million units, now LG Optimus G is set to launch in other countries.
And apparently, China and Europe will be chosen by LG as the places to deploy its latest beast smartphone. Will, if you are currently living in China and European countries, then be sure to check out this phone when it finally launches anytime soon.
Something that might make you interested to purchase this phone is definitely its super-fast lag-free performance which runs extremely quick than some of other high-end smartphones out there. Not to mention, its great ability to do multitasking mode right away on the screen is absolutely the feature that you will never (possibly ever) get on iPhone.
This on-screen multitasking feature allows you, for example, to watch movies or videos in minimize mode (not to mention transparent mode) while checking emails or browsing websites or anything. So it’s like using your normal PC desktop’s UI where you can put any opened applications on every position of the screen while your opening Windows Media Player or writing on Microsoft Word.
I believe the next LG Optimus will be so much even better than this phone, especially with the substantial improvements in the UI sector given that LG is one of the phone manufacturers that always has the best technologies than other rivals.
Well, if you ask me what is a great smartphone to buy made by LG, then LG Optimus G is definitely the one I’m recommending to you (besides Google Nexus 4, of course). It’s fast, it has powerful hardware and its UI is much advanced than other casual smartphones out there.
HTC Butterfly used to enjoy for being one of the first smartphones on this earth that has that 5-inch 1080p screen
, which has officially become the industry standard in smartphone market these days and will be the trend in 2013.
|HTC Butterfly Price in India|
So i bet you are already excited to know more about HTC Butterfly price in India, aren't you? Well, don't you worry, you will know more about that by reading this post till the end.
Excited already, huh?
However if you intend to get this phone when it’s finally available to buy in the market, HTC Butterfly is said will cost you for a staggering INR 44,000 (or equal to $810). Luckily, with that high-end price tag, there are many goodies that I believe will make you drooling if you can’t afford this phone.
To name a few, HTC Butterfly packs some great high-end specs on its, like of course, a 5-inch FHD Super LCD 3 screen with that jaw-dropping 441ppi pixel density, 2GB of RAM and 1.5GHz quad-core processor powering the performance sector of this device and many more.
Something that can be so interesting to see from this device is that HTC Butterfly will likely become one of the biggest rivals in 5-inch 1080 smartphone market, especially since HTC has been well-known already as top phone manufacturer around just like Samsung or Apple, although not on par with these 2 tech juggernauts.
So if, let’s say, HTC Butterfly turns to be a big hit in the market just like Samsung GALAXY S series or iPhone, then there is a huge chance that HTC will repeat the success that it already gained earlier with its HTC One family few months ago. And don’t be surprised if HTC will launch another successor for this series (i.e., HTC Butterfly 2, HTC Butterfly+ or anything) in the future.
Anyway, in Japan, HTC Butterfly has a slightly different brand name, HTC J Butterfly, while in the US, it’s called as that popular HTC Droid DNA in Verizon’s latest line up, which is not so surprising given that all of these devices have slightly similar specs on it.
Anyway, what do you think? Do those aforementioned specs above already make you want to switch your old phone to this HTC Butterfly-slash-HTC Droid DNA? Well, if so, then be sure to prepare the budget when it finally launches in India anytime soon.
In smartphone market, Samsung will definitely put all of its wager on its pride horses, Samsung GALAXY S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II (along with the predecessors). These 2 models are no doubt the most popular devices in the market right now, as well as iPhone 5.
high-end devices that also have the crucial role for Samsung in the past few years. Samsung GALAXY Xcover is one of them.
Samsung GALAXY Xcover is a mid-end smartphone that of course, is targeted for those people who want to get good spec’d device in affordable price tag. Even though the sales number of this phone in the market is not as impressive as GALAXY S II or GALAXY Note I (let alone the latest models), the sales achievement of Samsung GALAXY Xcover apparently has met with Samsung’s expectation already.
Therefore, in the near February next month, Samsung is planning to introduce the sequels of this smartphone. Allegedly will be called as Samsung GALAXY Xcover 2 (duh!!), this next series will pack so much better specs than predecessor, from a 4-inch LCD display supporting the resolution of 480x800 pixels, 5MP and 0.3MP cameras front and back respectively, 4GB of internal storage plus the microSD card slow, 1.700mAh battery, Android 4.1, possibly Android 4.2 Jelly Bean pre-installed and this phone will likely be announced at MWC event next month.
There is no word about the price details or availability for now though, but the most interesting part of this news is that is Samsung GALAXY Xcover 2 will be as water and dust proof as the previous model. The possibility is huge there since in the first place, Samsung originally wants to introduce this phone as water-slash-dust-proof smartphone, right?
Something that I think will make Samsung GALAXY Xcover 2 get much much better reception than the predecessor in the market is because this sequel is released when Samsung is currently at the top of the game, with Samsung GALAXY series taking charge in most of possible smartphone markets, while on the other hand, the predecessor was released when Samsung was still struggling in the market, competing with Apple’s iPhone.
So I believe, there are many people, especially in the developing countries, that will be more than welcome to get this smartphone once it launches on the market soon.
Meanwhile, if you’re interested to purchase the predecessor instead, Samsung GALAXY Xcover, then this can be a great time for you. At Amazon, now you can snatch this device for just $233 as unlocked device. Interested?
As a tablet, Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 is definitely one of the best 10.1-inch tablets out there
. Besides offering all of the features found on the original 5.5-inch GALAXY Note, this tablet also offers users with one thing that even iPad cannot have, the official S-Pen stylus that has many great capabilities than other casual styluses don’t have.
The good news is, recently, the US variant of Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 will be given an update of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Well, if you are one of the proud owners of this tablet, then this is the best chance for you to finally revamp the old Android build on your tablet with the new experience of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
This Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 is said can be downloaded through Samsung Kies software on your PC. If you want to know whether this update is available for you or not, you can do that by checking it out via Settings > About device > Software update and (hopefully) voila.. the update is there.
But if you still can’t find it, then “you are out of luck, try again next time”, just kidding, I mean, you can still check it out via the Kies software on your PC by plugging your tablet to your PC.
Not to mention, Google Voice Search that will surely enhance your daily life because Google will become your loyal assistant to accompany you in your activities and remind you of any important thing that you usually do every single day, including to remind when you forgot to eat breakfast or lunch (it's a bit creepy, isn't it?).
Unfortunately, if you are looking for PhotoSphere, you’re still a bit closer to that as PhotoSphere is only available on Android 4.2.1. Hopefully, Samsung will speed up the process of updating this 10-inch phablet to Android 4.2 because the next Android build Key Lime Pie is getting even closer and closer to the announcement in the upcoming months.
So if Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 is still using Android Jelly Bean while the other newest Android tablets already come pre-installed with Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, then there is a chance that people will opt to other tablets.
So hurry up Sammy!
