The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 went on sale in Europe this week, but before you purchase one online and have it shipped to the United States, there’s something you need to know. It appears Samsung is region-locking the new device to prevent it from being used with international SIMs, so handsets sold in Europe will only work with European operators — even if you buy them unlocked.

Samsung is set to announce the Galaxy S IV, its next-generation Android flagship, on March 15 — before it goes on sale in early April. That’s according to a “trusted insider,” who claims the location of Samsung’s Unpacked event is still “top-secret.” Invitations will reportedly go out to the press just after Mobile World Congress at the end of this month.

We simply love wallpapers. They’re one of the first changes we make to our Android devices and often represent our moods, interests, or wicked alter egos. They’re as unique as the individuals who use them and while some people pick one and stick with it, others change them more often than a teenager’s Facebook status. Each day we’re going to feature a free wallpaper for you to download and use on your Android device. Depending on your device, you may want to use your favorite photo editing software to resize the image for a better fit. Once that’s done, apply and enjoy. Your homescreen can thank us later. Cheers!
