    Samsung's only real Android hardware news at its press event last night was the arrival of an LTE-enabled version of Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 for Verizon. We spent a little hands-on time with the tablet to give you a glimpse at what you can expect. Just like the initial Note 10.1, Verizon's version takes full advantage of Samsung's S-Pen stylus, but starts out a little bit ahead of its predecessor thanks to the inclusion of Jelly Bean right out of the gate. As you'll see in the video, Jelly Bean makes a big difference in system responsiveness, especially when running two apps at once. ...

    Now it's Samsung's time to shine at the CES, and like LG and AT&T before it, it's very focused on connected devices and the interactions between them. Samsung got started with its new TVs, and its S-Recommendation system for streaming content. The idea is that S-Recommendation connects to your smartphone, tablet, and PC, and pulls all the content stored on those devices together for you to enjoy in one place. But enough about connected appliances – we're here for the smartphones and tablets. First up down that alley, Samsung announced that an LTE-enabled Galaxy Note 10.1 is coming to ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, while a tad late to the market since its introduction at MWC 2012, has shipped with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich on-board, one of the main reasons we said in our review that it is "snappy, but everyday activities are not always “buttery smooth”. However, those who have the Note 10.1 (and are still running stock), can now update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean as (almost) the latest Android version is being pushed out by the manufacturer. The OTA update has been reportedly sighted in Germany which means that other regions should be enabled soon. Source: ...

    Late last month, we saw some evidence that Samsung might be working on a new entry for its Note series of stylus-based Androids, appearing as model GT-N5100 in some regulatory documents and a User Agent Profile. While we didn't have much info on the hardware itself, that model number, and specifically the letter "N" there, suggested that this would be a Note. After all, existing Note hardware has been in the N7000 or N8000 series. Now that model shows up again, this time with some benchmark results, and sheds a little more light on just what it might be. While the 5100's UAProf reported ...

    If you're a fan of the stylus, Samsung is the manufacturer to turn to, churning-out models like the new Galaxy Note II and larger Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. While you've got some choice there, what if you prefer a more mid-sized tablet – something closer to the seven or even nine-inch range? Samsung may be developing just such a Note tablet, as revealed through some DLNA certification paperwork and the discovery of a User Agent Profile The DLNA paperwork doesn't delve much into about the device itself, but gives us model number GT-N5100. The GT-N prefix suggests that we're looking at ...

    "You know what the world needs? Another ten-inch tablet." That's something we haven't heard from, well, anyone recently. But that's apparently not stopping the combined force of Google and Samsung, who appear ready to drop a plus-sized Nexus tablet on the populace this coming Monday. The device went from rumor to all-but-confirmed in a relatively short period of time, finally getting pictured this afternoon after being referenced in a user-manual leak earlier in the week. As we discussed in this morning's edition of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast, the new device is rumored to sport an ...

    This holiday season is shaping up to be absolutely insane in the mobile technology space, with new products landing almost more quickly than we can cover them. The pace of announcement and release shows no sign of slowing, but if you're an OEM, one of the nice things about launching a truly impressive beast of a device is that it stays in the headlines a while. Such is the case with the Galaxy Note II, a device we featured rather heavily in the weeks leading up to and following its release, crowned by the longest review I've ever written. It's one of the year's most significant devices, ...

    I'm looking at a press release that flashed into my inbox this morning, a notice from AT&T that the company will soon be launching three new smartphones and a tablet. Surveying the list, it quickly becomes apparent that all of these newcomers have two things in common: they're all built by Samsung, and they all bear the word "Galaxy" in their names. That should come as a surprise to absolutely no one; Samsung has been using the celestial surname to denote its Android smartphone and tablet products for years. But as the South Korean OEM continues to flood the market with more and more ...

    Overnight, we told you about reports we had heard of Jelly Bean arriving for international Galaxy S III handsets. Since then, Samsung's confirmed the start of its Android 4.1 distribution for the model, as well as offered a look at which of its other smartphones and tablets will be seeing their own Jelly Bean updates arrive in the future. The biggies like the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note make the cut, obviously, along with the Galaxy S Advance, S II LTE, Chat, Ace 2, Ace Plus, Beam, Mini 2 and the Galaxy S Duos. On the tablet side, Samsung says to expect Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Tab 7.0 ...

    Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 was launched ahead of the Note II bringing the stylus to the tablet. You can check out our unboxing and make sure to stay tuned for the upcoming review but if you already have a Note 10.1 running Ice Cream Sandwich out-of-the-box you might be interested in a Jelly Bean OTA leak. A couple of notes: it is not yet available to download over-the-air (or by KIES) but if you decide to give it a go from the source link below you'll have to know that it will only work on model numbers GT-N8000. Also, this is a test ROM so expect some glitches; however, if you want to ...

    Now that Amazon's new Kindle lineup, including a refreshed Kindle Fire and two new Kindle Fire HD tablets, has been announced, we're sure you're wondering just how these new offerings stack up against the first Kindle Fire, as well as some of the other bigwigs in the tablet game. That's why we put together a little comparison chart, for a head-to-head look at just how all this different hardware fares. It's still not complete, as Amazon has yet to confirm a few details about the new hardware's capabilities, but at least we can get a preliminary look at how everything lines-up. Obviously, ...

    The FedEx guy was kind to us this week and dropped by our very own Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 to review! This is Samsung's latest tablet offering, it comes with 16GB storage on-board and is expandable by another 64GB via a microSD XC card. Inside is a quad-core, 1.4GHz processor, and 2GB RAM. On the top is the power button, volume rocker, microSD card slot, IR port, and headphone jack. The right and left sides are empty. The bottom has a Samsung connector port and a microphone. On the back of the device is a 5MP camera with LED flash, some modest branding, and the S-Pen stylus. On the front ...

    Picture this: you're lying in bed with your favorite tablet, catching up on the latest episode from the AMC series Hell On Wheels. You can substitute any TV show, movie, or YouTube series there, really, but Hell On Wheels is pretty amazing. Anyway, you're lying there, jaw agape at the realization that maybe the rapper Common can actually act, but you've got a problem. While the visuals are stunning on your 2012-edition iPad's Retina display, or passable on the lighter, slimmer Nexus 7's screen, you can't really hear anything. You reach to the volume toggle, hoping to avoid a repeat of ...

    Well, it's good to know that our guessing instinct here at Pocketnow is still pretty sharp. On Tuesday, we posted a piece speculating on what Samsung might announce at today's event in New York City. We offered up three possibilities, all of which happened to feature "Galaxy Note" branding, and said our leading contender was the Galaxy Note 10.1. Not that it was the most difficult puzzle we've ever solved, but we nailed it: Wednesday morning's announcement saw Samsung's newest tablet announced for American consumption (and creation), with general availability kicking off tomorrow, August ...
