Re: Samsung Galaxy Note

probably later this year. Samsung has a 5" wifi only Galaxy Player, but the spec is...underwhelming.

Isn't the Galaxy Note only a dual-core 1.4GHz device? Are there other models that are quad-core?
Oops, my bad. Dual Core 1.4GHz. The "4" there switched my mind to "Quad" :)

Re: Apps to play 10bit video?

Well, so far the conclusion nothing below quad core specs are able to play 10bit videos. You need to convert 10bit to 8bit.

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note

Can you tell me if the charger is a 5V (5 volt) output for charging the battery. It will usually say so on the charger block that plugs into the wall. If it is 5V this opens up a lot of other remote powering possibilities. It's 5 V alright. I really love this whole charging through micro-USB thing....

Re: Samsung Galaxy Note

Kodiak, you can easily open the back cover and replace the battery. The high capacity aftermarket batteries seem to have added bulk on the backside so I am not keen to use them. So far the Note feels right for me. I can work, play, and multitask between them fast. The dualcore processors and ample 1...

Samsung Galaxy Note

So finally I decide to buy Samsung Galaxy Note. The reasons are: 1. I need to have a phone that has full android capabilities. 2. I need dual core devices to play HD video and games. 3. The 5.3" screen is gorgeous to behold, fit in my shirt pocket, and altogether nice to hold. 4. The S pen is truly ...

Re: Archos G10 xs, Archos Elements and Arnova 50Ôé¼ announced

If that Archos Elements 8" series can handle 720P 10bit anime, I'd buy it. For now, I am tempted by the sexy looking Galaxy Tab 7.7....on sale on my place for ~ 750 bucks complete with dock and bonuses...

Re: Confused about what models are available?

Turbo's supposed to be 1.5 GHz.
The HDD is probably formatted in FAT32.

You may want to use USB keyboard instead if you are not cable-hater :)

I can read CBR comics with ACV on my Archos 70it (G8), so I believe Archos G9 will be better.

Re: RAM confirmation for the Turbo model

And it is as I expected: Multitasking is no fun. Even when switching only between a file manager (TotalCommander 1.0 beta) and a comic viewer the comic viewer gets shut down. Either 512 MB RAM just isn't enough to hold 2! apps, or the memory management of Honeycomb is very aggressive. File Manager ...
