Galaxy Note

With Android 4.0 making its way to numerous variations of the Samsung Galaxy Note across the globe, it's now time for Canadians to get some of that software update love as well. We've seen plenty of rumored dates come across the board from TELUS, Bell and Rogers but now Samsung has issued their own press release letting folks know things will get underway starting July 13th. As exciting as that sounds, that doesn't mean everyone will get the update on July 13th sadly. As noted in the press release:

The Premium Suite upgrade for GALAXY Note users will be available from Canadian carriers tomorrow. For specific details, please contact your local carrier. 

In other words, we still only really have those rumored launch dates to go by, except now Samsung has added an additional level of reassurance to the mix. As a reminder of those dates, Bell is down for a July 16th release while TELUS and Rogers stuck with "late July". In any event, Canadian Galaxy Note owners will get the same updates as we previously highlighted on the AT&T units out there, if you want to see what you'll be getting, check out our AT&T Galaxy Note coverage.

Samsung Canada offers Premium Suite software upgrade for GALAXY Note users

Software package offers exclusive S Pen applications, enhanced multimedia features, and an Android 4.0 upgrade

MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Samsung Canada today announced that the Premium Suite upgrade for GALAXY Note users will be available starting tomorrow. It includes extra multimedia features and a range of new S Pen optimized applications in addition to an OS upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Premium Suite offers new features and applications exclusive to GALAXY Note and its innovative S Pen, which includes the option to download the free app, S Note, a unique tool that lets you combine your notes or sketches with other digital content, giving you a new way to create your own stories. S Note comes in various ready-to-use templates for a range of tasks including meeting minutes, diary and others.

"GALAXY Note continues to delight Canadian customers with its incredible versatility and unique user experience," said Paul Brannen, Vice President Enterprise Business Group at Samsung Canada. "With the Premium Suite upgrade, we added features that enrich the GALAXY Note experience, including the highly anticipated upgrade to Android 4.0 software and innovative applications to S Pen functionality."

S Note also includes the innovative Shape Match and Formula Match applications that help correct and digitize geometric shapes and even solve mathematical formulas hand-drawn with S Pen, increasing your on-the-go efficiency and productivity. You can draw tables and grids which are instantly digitized, saving time and effort. Moreover, by using the S Note's integrated knowledge search engine, Wolfram Alpha, users can quickly search, and obtain information by simply writing out a question.

For a touch of self-expression, the Premium Suite also includes My Story (which is a download from S Choice), another S Pen optimized application that allows you to create personalized digital cards for friends or family using any type of content including notes, video content, photos, text or voice.

The Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade brings a new user experience to Android on GALAXY Note, with a more intuitive user interface that includes a redesigned App menu for easier multi-tasking. The upgrade also introduces innovations such as Face Unlock, Data Usage, Android Beam and others.
