Samsung's stylus-enabled "phablets" are set to get even bigger, sources in South Korea claim, with the Galaxy Note III tipped to have a whopping 6.3-inch display when it arrives in 2013.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on with speed tests and benchmarks

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is ready for action on Verizon's 4G LTE network now, and what better way to usher in a new version of the device that's also out on several other networks than to do some speed tests and processor benchmarks? The big differences between the Samsung Galaxy Note II on Verizon and the competition's carrier networks is the speed at which it accesses data, the cost of the data therein, and of course the Verizon-specific apps (mostly for tracking your data and your data costs.) Other than that it's the same cool Galaxy Note II experience you've gotten used to on T-Mobile, AT&T, and internationally.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 31, 2012

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 31, 2012

Welcome to the special Halloween edition of the Evening Wrap-Up! The Halloween edition is pretty much the same as regular Wrap-Ups, the only difference is that I'm dressed as Ginger Spice as I type this. Let's spice up our lives with a recap, shall we? Microsoft is being sued over its Windows 8 live tiles, and Apple has removed delivery dates from iPad Mini LTE pre-orders, leading some to suspect that the company has been forced to delay them. T-Mobile and AT&T have opened up their networks in areas hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, letting customers of both carriers use either network - a respectable move by the two carriers in this time of need.
