First Look Video on Official Android 4.0 ICS on Samsung Galaxy Note

According to Pocketnow, “for users concerned with too much change, there is no need to fear. Samsung has kept the user experience cohesive by sticking with a similar TouchWiz interface and application folder system. To update your international Galaxy Note (GT-N7000) follow the instructions on the XDA-Developers post here. For those that want a lot of customization check out the CyanogenMod 9 for the Galaxy Note that Brandon showed off a few days ago.”

What Samsung Galaxy Note’s Ice Cream Sandwich Taste Like?

Sure looks promising but given the slightly slower processor under the hood especially with what the new HTC One has, I’m pretty sure we will be seeing the next generation Galaxy Note soon.

Video Review – HTC HD2

If you haven’t seen the phone in action, check out the reviews above.  My initial thoughts -

  • HUGE screen
  • LARGE phone
  • new Sense interface still as sluggish as the old TouchFLO interface (not better with Windows Mobile 6.5)

Would I want to buy one? nah, not now.  Check out this review from Engadget if you want to know more about the HTC HD2.

Street price: HK$5,680 (US$728) from www.JipJipMobile.com
