There is another Samsung Galaxy Note 3 8.0 news today. And this is not a rumor, in a way. The news comes from the Bluetooth SIG, as the tablet has headed there for the certification. The mobile device has the model number SM-T311, which we have seen in previous rumors.
But the Bluetooth SIG does not mention the device as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 8.0. This name is also not yet official. Although, Bluetooth SIG indicates that we are looking at a Samsung “Mobile Tablet” device here. The certification listing date for the device has been listed as April 26th.Read more

Android toppled iOS last year in terms of raw users, but Apple may soon take back its throne.
A new survey of 16,000 U.S. smartphone owners found that almost one quarter of Android users had no plans to upgrade to another Android phone.
The survey was conducted over the past 12 months by research firm Yankee Group, which determined that “Apple’s ‘black hole’ ecosystem captures subscribers who never leave” and that “at the checkout counter, Apple continues to eat Samsung’s lunch.”
The group said that one out of every six Android customers will eventually switch to other systems, which should allow Apple phone ownership to leapfrog past Android by 2015.Read more

2013 has been a pretty good year for smartphones with significant launches from Samsung, HTC, Huawei, LG, and Google. Today’s flagships are bigger, faster, and better connected, shipping with native LTE-support, NFC, and ultra powerful quad-core chipsets like Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 600.
The gap between mobile and PC is closing rapidly with console-like gaming now commonplace on Google’s Android platform. Smartphone adoption is also on the up, reportedly surpassing traditional mobile phone usage for the first time in Q1 2013, according to IDC.
CES 2013 and MWC 2013 have been and gone and we’ve got CTIA 2013 and IFA 2013 coming up. CTIA is America’s answer to Mobile World Congress and IFA is a German-based technology expo. Samsung is tipped to be launching its Galaxy Note 3 at IFA. Read more

Samsung unveiled their latest tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, at the 2013 Mobile World Congress conference last week. However, they never mentioned a Charcoal Black version.
