The Galaxy Note is a surprising popular phone. Who would have thought that millions of people would buy such a huge phone? Well now it looks like T-Mobile users in the United States will finally get to carry around the 5.3 inch phone/tablet hybrid.
Netbook News has receieved a tip from an anonymous Samsung employee in Korea that production of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (GT-P5100) has stopped to upgrade the 1 GHz dual-core CPU to a quad-core CPU. It is unknown what brand of processor Samsung is switching to. The two most likely candidates are their own quad-core Exynos CPU that they have been working on or NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 CPU. Both would be a great addition to the tablet, but I think the Exynos CPU is better.
Invites to Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 in London are being sent out now. My lowly blog did not make the invite list, but the event will be held on May 3rd. The invitation only has three abstract blobs and the words “COME AND MEET THE NEXT GALAXY” printed on it. Most of the tech website are immediately assuming that this means “COME AND MEET THE GALAXY S III” or whatever name Samsung chooses for their Android flagship phone. I, however, read it as “COME AND MEET THE NEXT GALAXY LINE.”
So will we see a Galaxy Tab or Galaxy Note tablet on May 3rd? Maybe. Until then all we can do is wait.

Cover Art Live Wallpaper is exactly what it sounds like – a live wallpaper that displays your music’s album art. Each time you wake up your tablet, the cover art tiles will quickly reload with a swift animation. Touching the tiles will prompt them to zoom in and back out.
The 10.1 inch Galaxy Note that was announced at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. It was announced with very similar specs to the 5.3 inch Galaxy Note phone. They both have a 1280 x 800 display, 1.4 GHz dual-core Exynos processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a S-Pen.
The Galaxy Tab 2 is coming out soon in both 7.0 inches and 10.1 inches. I originally thought these devices would be dead on arrival because they would cost too much. Well The Verge just reported the price of these two devices. The Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 will cost $250 and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 will be $400. These prices are for the Wi-Fi versions.
We got some bad news today for all of the future owners of the Galaxy Tab 2. Both the 10.1 inch and 7.0 inch versions of the Galaxy Tab 2 are going to be delayed. Even more frustrating than the fact that they are being delayed is the reason why. Samsung says that they need more time to work on the Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the device. Samsung has had the source code for ICS longer than any other company because they manufactured the Galaxy Nexus and they still can’t launch a device on schedule with Ice Cream Sandwich. Other companies have managed to push out ICS updates to their tablets. ASUS comes to mind as doing exceptionally well.
