The point is that everybody is in need of new creativity and new adventure so; here it comes the new Samsung galaxy note 2 Tablet. The new note 2 won’t have many changes from the earlier one but it has few improvements which lead to the best category. The smart phone is of hybrid design and comprises of 1.6 GHz quad core processor. It has 5.55 inch display with 720p resolution.

Yesterday T-Mobile started taking orders for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2, and now two other major carries from USA has started taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note – Verizon and AT&T. Both are available in different deals while offering similar specs and features to international Galaxy Note 2 variant.
The Verizon Galaxy Note 2 is available with the price tag of $299 (2 year contract) but if you don’t like contracts, simply a Verizon Galaxy Note 2 for $649, the same price we saw for the T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2. Verizon offering both colors of the phablet 2 – Marble White and Titanium Gray and the phone will ship on November 27th , oops we’re almost one month way from the date.
On the AT&T corner, you can buy a LTE capable Galaxy Note 2, it also offers the phone for $299 with two year contract as well as $650 without contract, the AT&T Galaxy Note 2 will ship on November 6th.
After so many rumors, T-Mobile Galaxy Note variant has been arrived and offers many deals, specs and features are similar to original Samsung Galaxy Note 2. You can now pre-order your T-Mobile Galaxy Note, both colors are available now, the titanium gray and marble white. You can buy one unite for $369.99 but it’s a $50 mail-in rebate, which means the actual price is $419.99 with a 2-year contract. This offer isn’t very attention-getting. Magenta offering free shipping and you’ll have to pay $39.99 each month.
Apple has always been claiming that Samsung is copying their gadgets, Apple also won a case “rubber-banding patent” (Patent No, 7,469,381) against Samsung and Samsung had to pay $1billion to Apple for this fight but it has now been invalid according to United States Patent and Trademark Office. But the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 wasn’t similar to Apple gadgets, however Google has launched a similar 7-inch “Nexus 7” tablet and Apple too known as iPad mini. This is the first time when Apple launched a gadget which is similar to Android gadgets.
After a lot of rumors finally Apple launched the iPad mini that is packed with impressive specs and features but is it better than Android 7-inch tablets such as Nexus 7. Google launched the Nexus 7 almost four months ago and according to a recent report Google has sold almost 1 million Nexus 7 unites and of course Nexus 7 is one best mini tablet of 2012, it runs latest Android version and gives a great experience, I hasn’t seen even one negative review about the Nexus 7 and the tablet makes tasks easier for me and I love this tablet but will iPad mini do the same too, which one is better iPad mini or Nexus 7?
During the iPad mini event the Phil Schiller also compared the new petty iPad to Nexus 7, he went through slide after slide and quote after quote for trashing the Nexus 7 but it seems that it’s not possible, his compassion doesn’t make sense because Nexus 7 has powerful specs and features even it’s cheaper than the Apple’s new tablet.
Let’s compare them, iPad mini vs. Nexus 7 isn’t a trouble-free fight, both are high-end tablets of this year, this fight is one of the best example that can come up with. I have divided the comparison of these kickass tablets into different parts, this is because it can provide comprehensive detail about them and you’ll be able to easily share your thoughts about them. We’re comparing these tablets because both will play an important part in the market and you might get confused which one you should buy.
Are you excited for the LG Optimus G that will be launched for AT&T and Sprint soon? Well! But it seems that we might face some problems with the phone if you love to customize the phone. If you take a bird eye view on the history of LG, the company mostly provided Android devices that can easily be customized, you can easily add extra tweaks and apply hacks on them by unlocking their bootloaders. But some recent releases comes with locked up bootloader such as the LG Optimus 4X HD, a guy over Android Central asked a contract at LG and they replied:
The Optimus G doesn’t support an unlocked bootloader.0 23rd October, 2012 BY Abdur Rehman
