Best Buy has announced that it will be holding a two-day Cyber Sale on Sunday and Monday, November 25 – 26. So, tomorrow and the day after you’ll be able to get free Samsung Galaxy Note 4G for T-Mobile with 2-year service agreement and HTC Evo Design 4G for Boost Mobile for $219. Since Boost Mobile is a pre-paid service provider the phone comes without contract. Keep in mind that the Galaxy Note 4G on sale is the ‘old’ model we are talking about – the one with 5.3-inch screen, 1.3GHz Snapdragon S3 processor and 2500 mAh battery. Other features are similar for both versions. Aside discounted prices, Best Buy offers free shipping.
Have you ever thought it could be possible to have one of the latest smartphones for free? Difficult to imagine as it is, with the new T-Mobile’s Magenta Days promotion it is possible. T-Mobile has put a number of Android devices on sale, including the flagship Samsung Galaxy S III or the new Samsung Galaxy S Relay, and any of them can be your for $0.00.
The sale starts September 21st and expires September 30th so you do not have much time to make up your mind. New customers will be required to sign a new 2-year contract on any qualifying Unlimited Value and Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan. Existing customers are eligible for the deal as well.
The free Galaxy S III sounds great, doesn’t it? But there is a little catch in here. The promotion is based on mail-in rebates, which means that actually, first you have to pay for the phone, and then you will have your money returned in the form of a Visa card. The time of processing is 6 to 8 weeks and during this period your account must remain active and in good standing.
There is also another catch – T-Mobile offers the $0.00 prices in local stores only, so any online purchase will not qualify for the rebate.
Now, let’s see how much you can save. The rebate on the super fast Samsung Galaxy S III with its beautiful 4.8” Super AMOLED HD Screen is as much as $150. The T-Mobile’s thinnest smartphone and one of the fastest running on 4G network, HTC One S will save you $50, just like the Huawei myTouch Q. If you choose the tablet-like Samsung Galaxy Note or the latest addition to the Samsung Galaxy S lineup, the Relay 4G equipped with a physical QWERTY keyboard, you will be left with $100 more in your wallet. Exactly the same amount you will also save if you decide on the BlackBerry Bold 9900 4G featuring a touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard.
If you want to take advantage of this special offer, you will need to hurry because the promotion will last only 9 days, between September 21st and 30th.
With a very high probability of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 being unveiled this year, the prices of the original begin to drop. So if you were thinking of getting yourself one of these phone, you will be happy to know that Amazon Wireless has cut the price on the AT&T’s Samsung Galaxy Note by $40 and now you can have it for just $159.99. Sounds good, doesn’t it? The deal is good for new and upgrading AT&T customers. See details below.
The Samsung Galaxy Note for AT&T is definitely something more than just a smartphone. Its large 5.3-inch Super AMOLED HD display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution makes it probably one of the largest phones available, but still it is slim (0.38 inches thin) and light (6.28 ounces) enough to use it comfortably. Powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm S3 processor Galaxy Note performs with lightning speed whether you browse the web or play games. 1GB of RAM, together with 16GB of internal storage provide lots of space but if you feel it is not enough, you can always add more with up to 32 GB microSD card. The 2,500 mAh battery provides you with up to 10 hours talk time and Swype technology facilitates texting – all you have to do is slide your finger over the letters.
The smartphone comes with an S-Pen stylus offering wide range of functions, for instance pressure sensitivity, preciseness, speed and more. The stylus responds like a real pen and allows you to create personalized messages, make notes in your own handwriting or simple doodle for fun.
Other features of Samsung Galaxy Note include: rear-facing 8-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash, digital optical 4x zoom and full HD 1080p video capture, 2-megapixel forward-facing camera, Music player compatible with MP3, WMA, AAC, and WAV, Video player compatible with MP4, M4V, AVI, WMV, and 3GP, Full HTML browser with Flash 10.1 support, 3.5mm headphone jack, hands-free speakerphone, HDMI and micro USB ports, as well as Onboard GPS for navigation.
In term of connectivity, the device connects with super fast 4G via AT&T’s LTE and HSPA+ networks, and when not available, it will connect with 3G network. The Samsung Galaxy Note runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which, although by many considered sufficient and reliable mainly thanks to its multitasking capabilities, is now one generation old. And here we have some good news – the operating system can be upgraded to the latest version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The phone comes pre-loaded with Android apps and tools like: Browser, Calculator, Calendar (Google or Corporate), Camera, Clock, Contacts, Email, Gallery, Messaging, Music, News & Weather, Phone, Settings, Video Player, Voice Dialer, Voice Search, YouTube and supports Google apps, for example Gmail, Google Search, Google Voice Search, Google Latitude, Google Maps, Google Places, Google Talk. For more, you can visit Android Market, where you will find thousands of apps to download for free or little money.
The phone is also SAFE, which means it is approved for enterprise. The Note supports Mobile Device Management, on-device encryption, Exchange ActiveSync for corporate email / calendar / contacts and Virtual Private Networks so you can use it as a tool for your professional activity.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 features a 10.1-inch display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, so it has the screen real estate for scrawling notes, entertaining kids, and creating some real pieces of art if you wish. You can do so either using your fingertips or the S-Pen stylus, which is still not very common for tablets. The stylus can be used to write, draw or navigate, though using it may require some getting used to. It is an elegant and easy-to-grip pen but the inclusion of a function button close to the tip can prove to be somewhat irksome. For some users it may not be easy to find the best way to hold the S-Pen without triggering the screenshot function which is assigned to the button. The bottom end of the pen functions as an eraser – all you have to do is flip the pen.
Under the hood, there is a Quad Core Exynos 4412 processor running at 1.4GHz, and 2GB of RAM with 16GB or 32GB of flash storage. The microSD card slot is compatible with cards up to 64 GB so you don’t have to worry about running out of space for your documents, photos, games or apps. The table sports Bluetooth 4.0, GPS navigation, an accelerometer, a digital compass and a gyroscope, and you connect to the Web via WiFi (802.11b/g/n), Wi-Fi Direct, dual-band, or create a Wi-Fi hotspot. All this makes the device efficient and fast. Websites (even graphics-heavy ones) and apps load quickly and without a problem, and games and movies run smoothly. The impressive 7000 mAh battery provides you with up to 21 hours of play time without the need to recharge the battery.
To add even more fun, the table has two cameras. 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera serves for video chatting and 5 megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and geo-tagging allows you to take pictures and edit them using one of the few apps as well as record 1080p at 30 fps videos. The Galaxy Note 10.1 also provides access to Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Calendar, Google Talk, and is integrated with Picasa, so you can create and edit photo albums and share them with your friends and family. The tablet supports P4/DivX/Xvid/FLV/MKV/H.264/H.263 video and MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac audio files.
Samsung’s store offers a number of S-Pen compatible apps: S Memo, S Note, Adobe Ideas, PS Touch. While some of them are designed simply to have fun, others may prove really useful. The tablet runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. All things considered, it definitely is worth checking out.

The Handwriting-to-text will transform you scribble to standard text and the Knowledge Search will answer your questions.
The Samsung Galaxy Note for T-Mobile is a good choice for those who are not ready yet for a table but need something more than just an average phone.
Inspired by one of the most popular smartphones, Samsung Galaxy S3, the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet is now available at Negri Electronics, the one stop shop for hard-to-find tablets. Its price tag, which shows $749.99, may not look very convincing, but let’s see what the tablet itself has to offer.
The Samsung GT-N8000 Galaxy Note 10.1, aka Galaxy Note II, is 256.7 mm wide, 175.3 mm high and 8.9 mm deep, which makes it just the perfect size – big enough to play games or watch movies comfortably, yet small enough to have it always with you. The back is matte, which is very practical, so you can forget about fingertip marks.
Inside the Galaxy Note 10.1, there is an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, a Quad Core Exynos 4412 processor running at 1.4GHz, paired with 2GB of RAM with 16GB of flash storage. If you feel there is not enough space for your data, you can always expand the storage since the microSD card slot is compatible with cards up to 32 GB. The Galaxy Note 10.1 features Bluetooth , GPS, an accelerometer, a digital compass and a gyroscope, and you connect the Web via WiFi (802.11b/g/n), Wi-Fi Direct, dual-band, or create a Wi-Fi hotspot. It can be summarized in three words: quality, efficiency and speed. The apps as well as websites (even graphics-heavy ones) load quickly and without a problem, and games and movies run smoothly. The impressive 7000 mAh battery provides you with up to 21 hours of play time without the need to recharge the battery.
Cameras on Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1
The tablet features two cameras. 2MP front-facing serves for video chatting and 5MP rear camera with auto-focus, LED flash and geo-tagging allows you to take pictures and edit them using one of the few apps as well as record 1080p at 30fps videos. The Galaxy Note 10.1 also provides access to Google Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Calendar, Google Talk, and is integrated with Picasa, so you can create and edit photo albums and share them with your friends and family. The tablet supports MP4/DivX/Xvid/FLV/MKV/H.264/H.263 video and MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac audio files.
Thanks to the 10.1-inch display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, the Galaxy Note has the screen real estate for scrawling notes, entertaining kids, and creating some real pieces of art if you wish. You can do so either using your fingertips or the S-Pen stylus, which is still not very common for tablets. The stylus can be used to write, draw or navigate, though using it may require some getting used to. It is an elegant and easy-to-grip pen but the inclusion of a function button close to the tip can prove to be somewhat irksome. For some users it may not be easy to find the best way to hold the S-Pen without triggering the screenshot function which is assigned to the button. The bottom end of the pen functions as an eraser – all you have to do is flip the pen.
Coolest S-Pen Compatible Apps
Samsung’s store offers a number of S-Pen compatible apps. While some of them are designed simply to have fun, others may prove really useful.
First of all, there S Memo, which is a handwriting recognition app. After selecting one of a handful of themes (ranging from a memo to musical notation paper to graph paper), users are then given the option to choose from one of three function modes – formula, shape or text match. In the math option the screen will be divided in two and while you write your equation on one of them, the other shows the translation ready to accept and calculate. The shape recognition is a bit less useful, but if the composition of basic circles and squares poses you great difficulty, this neat mode will redraw them for you in proper alignment. The most important function of S Memo, however, is the ability to render your handwriting into readable type. Once the software learns your scribble, sharing your notes with your colleagues will never be a problem again.
S Note, which is a more creative variation of S Memo, will let you compose for example postcards with pictures from your own gallery or a magazine page with a video embed.
Adobe Ideas is one of the Adobe apps pre-loaded on the Galaxy Note 10.1. It is a Photoshop-like app that can give you basic idea on picture editing if you are an aspiring graphic designer or simply like to play with pictures. Pulling from a selection of images (pre-loaded, imported or snapped with the dual camera setup), users can add their creations in layers, adjusting brush size, opacity and color as they go. It is a welcome addition that could serve to gently ease newbies into the complex world of image manipulation that awaits them in PS Touch.
PS Touch is undoubtedly one of the tablet’s most advanced apps. It is a tablet version of the most popular image editing program – Photoshop, and most of its features, though laid out differently, remain intact. While it’s not a complete replacement for a desktop graphics workstation, the app does give pros some flexibility, letting them create on-the-go much the same way they’d do in the office or at home. Adobe added a variety of tutorials to walk users, both new and experienced, through the app’s many functions. It is not a completely intuitive walkthrough though so you’ll have to be a bit self-reliant and trust in your own skill set for that since some of the features require a deft hand and deep understanding of the more advanced principles of Photoshop.
Summing up, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 proves to be more useful than a standard Android tablet. It is a tool for creative professionals looking to extend their workflow beyond the confines of the traditional work environment.
With an array of apps that lend themselves well to sketching, annotating and moderate-to-heavy image editing, pro users should find this a satisfying on-the-go crutch. Armed with the S-Pen and a generous 10.1-inches, those moments of sudden inspiration won’t go wasted, as you’ll be capable of whipping this slate out and translating those fleeting moments of genius into visible and safely contained ideas.
