    Made me realise it's coming up on the first year of contract on my current Galaxy Note; if Samsung keep this up should hopefully see a Galaxy Note III in time for my contract renewal.

    I'd be interested to know what 4G options they have: whether all phones are 4G-enabled and which bands they operate on.

    Had to look up Glonass - with a bit of luck it'll provide a better service than GPS (which has been getting decidedly shoddy lately - whether it's just my Desire HD playing up or not I'm not sure).

    I love my note! Would like to upgrade but guessing its makes more sense to wait for the note 3...

    I'd guess and say it will probably be similar to the S III; 4G models where they're needed and cheaper-to-produce 3G models elsewhere. Also like the the S3, I'd expect a few different radios to keep costs down, among other reasons, but the European 4G versions will probably support the common bands i.e. 800/1800/2600.

    Essentially the Russian equivalent of GPS. In theory, accuracy of the civilian GLONASS is somewhat less than GPS on average, although it performs better at higher latitudes. However, a receiver capable of using signals from both systems allows for better performance in built-up areas as you're more likely to have a sufficient number of satellites in view. The European Galileo system should offer improved civilian accuracy over either, and the Chinese are also launching (pun intended) their own system, Beidou, but I'm not too sure of the details on that one. When the newer systems are fully operational, we should see devices capable of using all of them.

    It will be either your receiver or signal quality (poor weather possibly) to blame; GPS is very accurate but involves dealing with very weak signal levels and, in the case of most phones, a less-than-ideal receiver configuration i.e. low gain antenna, surrounded by metal parts, right next to high-powered radio transmitters.

    Re: News - Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will go on sale in UK on Monday 1st October

    For me it is not enough of an upgrade over the original note and not worth the £2-300 premium you would have to pay on a new contract.

    Also the screens are actually very similar by area, the note 2 is 1280x720 (typo above), so with the different ratios area remains the same. This is why the devices are of a similar size. The note 2 will be better for watching video, but the note 1 better for browsing.

    A lot of the s pen enhancements are software so these will hopefully appear on the note 1 at some point. The note 1 is still a beast of a phone!

    Is the original note due the JellyBean update?
