It’s currently compatible with the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Note 10.1, and the Galaxy S II HD LTE.

Samsung announced the new 7-inch Galaxy Tab 3 tablet this morning, but unsurprisingly it won’t be the last slate the Korean company launches during 2013. In fact, according to a leaked tablet roadmap, we can expect at least another three Galaxy Tab devices — all in different sizes — plus a new, eight-core Nexus 11.
BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS — As I was walking around the show floor at MWC today, I noticed a number of smartphones that looked very familiar — yet they were being paraded by Chinese companies I’d never heard of. I saw what looked like a large iPhone 5, an entire range of Samsung Galaxy devices, and a number of high-end HTC handsets.
Except they weren’t really Apple, Samsung, or HTC devices at all; they were actually cheap clones that were trying their best to look like the real thing. They even had fake accessories that were identical to the originals.
Earlier this week, Samsung announced a Garnet Red version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE in South Korea, and it published a number of press shots to show off the new device. It seems that within those press shots, the company may have accidentally revealed the Galaxy Note 8.0 as well.
I say “accidentally” lightly, because I have no doubt that Samsung revealed the device on purpose.
Samsung looks to be preparing to take on the iPad mini with the Galaxy Note 8.0, a smaller version of the Galaxy Note 10.1, which is expected to be priced very aggressively. In addition to an 8-inch display, the device will reportedly offer a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, and of course, Samsung’s S Pen stylus.
Developers have discovered a serious vulnerability with Samsung’s Exynos-powered smartphones — including its latest Galaxy S III and Galaxy Note II devices — that can provide attackers with access to all physical memory. The flaw leaves the handsets open to malicious apps that can access a user’s personal data, completely wipe their data, or worse, brick their handset.
Until today, tablets users in the United Kingdom would have had to pick up a new iPad mini to gain access to super speedy 4G connectivity on the go. But that’s no longer the case. EE, the U.K.’s first and only 4G network, has this morning announced some new additions to its tablet lineup, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, and the Google Nexus 7. The latter, which doesn’t actually come with 4G capabilities, will be bundled with an Huawei E589 mobile Wi-Fi dongle.
Samsung successfully had the iPhone 5 added to its patent infringement complaint against Apple earlier this month, but the Korean electronics giant hasn’t quite finished there. It’s now going after Apple’s latest iOS devices, and has requested that the iPad mini, the new fourth-generation iPad, and Apple’s latest iPod touch are also brought into the case.
Apple has added the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and the software that powers it, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, to an existing lawsuit against Samsung in California. The Cupertino company told U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewel on Tuesday that both are guilty of infringing patents owned by Apple.
Samsung may have already unveiled its second-generation Galaxy Note II, and indeed the Galaxy Note 10.1 this year. But it seems the Korean electronics giant has another Note up its sleeve. It has today send out teasers for a press event in New York City on October 24.
