U.S. versions of Samsung’s newest phablet phone, the Note II, launched missing a much touted feature of their International cousins – the Multi Window function. Using MW, folks could run two apps at once. Maybe check their email and surf the web or dot around in calendar while checking a text. Owners of the Note II here were left wondering just what the heck was going on, especially as MW was so hyped. Per the usual, U.S. carriers kept mum. Now Sprint has finally let loose details about the feature and when we can see it.
Coming in the next few days, Sprint users will find the update coming over the air. Along with Multi Window, the Note II will also receive a few tweaks. Incoming texts will now sound off a audible alert when received and email will get better when offline. Sprint notes that the update could take as long as five days before everyone gets their hands on it.
Sprint to entice customers with free tablets!

Eyeing yourself a new smartphone and plan on handing your monies over to Sprint? If so, then there’s an upcoming promo just for you. Starting August 12th, Big S is handing out free tablets with any smartphone purchase! That means you could grab a spiffy new Galaxy S III or an iPhone 4S or heck even some of the lower end el cheapo phones.
The tablet in question, yes there is only one offered, is the ZTE Optik which you can check out here. It’s a pretty decent slate with a 1.2 GHZ dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM under that 7″ screen. Granted it is on Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) and most likely won’t get an official (hint,hint) update to Ice Cream Sandwich but thems the breaks sometimes. The tablet usually runs $99 on contract ($350 out an out) so free is a pretty tempting price point. Unknown right now is if anyone taking Sprint up on their offer will have to sign up for a data plan for their freebie, my gut says they’ll have to.
Any geeks feeling the urge to grab some new shiny devices at Sprint? Let us know after the jumpy jump!

So the Sprintified version of Samsung’s Galaxy S III didn’t get the launch it was expecting, with the carrier lacking the supply to meet the demands of the eager customer. First the “Key 29″ markets were able to snag a phone and then some online sales slipped through but a nationwide launch was just beyond the grasp of House Hesse. Now the network has hammered down a final, concrete date for a real launch – July 1st. For $200, you can get a 16GB version in store or online while chipping in an extra $50 can net you folks a 32GB model online only.
Get ready Sprint geeks, your time is rapidly approaching! Any of you ready to get your Galaxy S III on? Hit the comments and sound off!
