I have some sad news for those of you in the UK who happened to splurge on a brand new Galaxy Note II smartphone. While we expected devices outside Korea to feature that awesome and coveted multi-window multitasking feature, it appears that some of the international models released in the UK do not feature the customized multi-window multitasking feature. According to various reports, some of the models that feature the older N7100XXALIE firmware does not allow for the multitasking. Conversely, other models that have the newer N7100XXALIH firmware will indeed have the multi-window multitasking feature. If you live in the UK and want to see what firmware you have, be sure to go to your Settings –> About Device in order to see if you are or aren’t affected by this.
We’re sure that the few of you who are affected are no doubt disappointed, but the hope is that Samsung will be consistent with its stellar track record– and promptly update the smartphone with consistent firmware so that all owners will be able to enjoy the feature, not some. After all, these people want to get their full money’s worth, right?
