A software venerability in the Samsung Exynos processor family that resides in your Galaxy Note II and international Galaxy S III has had an official response from the manufacturer today assuring a quick fix.

After that we've got to put our skeptic goggles on tight for all the salt that's flying our way.

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.
