This week the fabled Samsung smartphone model known as Galaxy S II Plus has shown its face once again, having disappeared from the news circuit for several weeks only to show up in model form with a few more specifications here well into the age of the Galaxy S III. While it might not seem too sensible for the manufacturer to produce a device that's essentially the same as the Galaxy S II, a legacy device at this point, here with a larger display, they may well have their reasons. Perhaps preparing this device for markets that've not yet seen any Galaxy devices, much less the II or III, here comes the 4.5-inch display-toting dual-core Galaxy S II Plus.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 17, 2012

Friday has come and gone, which means that the weekend is here once again. The latest iPhone 5 rumors have propelled Apple's stock to its highest point ever, and it turns out the company's funds will go toward helping tap a recently-discovered underground river in Crook County, Oregon. Earlier today we saw a picture of what was reported to be the Samsung Galaxy Note II, but later on in the day Daniel YU informed everyone that it was just his mock-up used without his permission. That's disappointing, but his mock-up looks great, so be sure to check that out.

As Thursday winds down, we're finding that we've got a lot of news to recap. Today Samsung used the MERL touchscreen table to show that Apple doesn't have much of a claim, before resting its case and asking the Judge to award it $421.8 million in the suit. Later in the day, we caught word that Judge Lucy Koh had asked Apple's counsel if they were smoking crack when they presented an extremely long document filled with witnesses they wanted to call for rebuttals. Yes, that really happened.

Verizon Galaxy S III bootloader unlocked by hackers

Verizon Galaxy S III bootloader unlocked by hackers

The Samsung Galaxy S III Android smartphone has been released internationally as well as on each of the major carriers here in the USA, and now the Verizon model has had its bootloader unlocked. The first and perhaps most important reason this is important is that Verizon's model of the Samsung device was the only one to have a locked bootloader - and a separate model made for developers with said bootloader unlocked. The second reason this is important is that an unlocked bootloader, for those of you unfamiliar, means that users will be able to work with whatever software build now that they so choose.
