Samsung have now released a new firmware update for the recently released Samsung Galaxy Note 2 across Europe. The new update adds support for split-screen multi-tasking to Samsung's smartphone.
Split-screen multitasking support was expected to be included when the smartphone launched, but the first batch of Galaxy Note's didn't come with the feature pre-loaded. However, that's all changed now thanks to this new firmware update which also adds a new version of Google Chrome and adds support for a new base-band.
After updating Galaxy Note II owners will be able to take full advantage of split-screen multi-tasking which enables you to run two fully fledged applications alongside each other. The possibilities are truly exciting and endless and we hope it's a feature that can make it's way onto all new smartphones and tablets.
With split-screen multi-tasking you'll be able to access your Facebook application, while you browse other websites or watch a video and much more. The Galaxy Note 10.1 supports split-screen multi-tasking but only with Samsung applications, but the Note 2's version supports any Android applications.
The new Galaxy Note 2 firmware is available to download across Europe over-the-air or using Samsung's Kies software. 3G highly recommends users download the update, but not before backing up their data and settings.
