Verus has just released some cases: verus >

I picked up one of the classic leather cases from Wanchai Computer Centre in Hong Kong yesterday.

For something as large as the Note II, I think I prefer a flip case which has more protection than the official clip case (which replaces the back cover).

Kind regards

Anybody have experience using this?
Amazon.com: Pogoplug Series 4 Backup Device [Newest Version]: Camera & Photo

Just picked it up because it's the Gold Box Deal of the day and much cheaper than the normal rate...plus, no monthly fees since info is stored on your own hard drive.

I realized I do a LOT of my posting via voice. I so look forward to the BT S-Pen (HM5100) but other than eBay I don't see it anywhere else.

Been searching like a mad man also. Hopefully, Sprint will have this at launch. 20% off 2 or more accessories will be great.

The cheapest I saw on ebay was around $125. The most expensive was $999.....you'd think for that <~~~ price it'd come with a Note 10.1.....#ijs

I asked Negri Electronics yesterday if they are going to carry that Pen and they said yes.

Now price wise, its anyone's guess, but at least it will be stateside availability.

Yes, Its an additional S-pen that is also a bluetooth speaker with mic that is really marketed to the Note 10.1 tablet users, but can be used with the Note 2.

No it doesn't. The back end (top) is where you plug it in to charge.

Samsung Galaxy Note BT S Pen hands-on

Scroll to the bottom and you'll see a bunch of pictures of the BT S-Pen.

Cool. Thanks. I remember one of the videos mentioning something about an eraser (but maybe they were saying that it would've been cool if they integrated that type of functionality).

There is a version of a S-Pen upgrade kit or holder that does have an eraser tip, but I would need to search for it.

S-Pen Family Tree

Quote:
From top to bottom, there's the original Galaxy Note S Pen, followed by the wand for the Note 10.1 tablet, an aftermarket pen with an "eraser" tip, and the S Pen Holder Kit, which has a wider, more comfortable rubber grip and comes with an extra S Pen to slip inside.

This is one thing I don't understand about Samsung - why are these products so hard to find or get information on? These should all be on one page, next to one another, with descriptions, prices and ready to order. It seems ******ed that we have to search like crazy for details on existing products! Or am I crazy?

I didn't look at the link, so feel free to slap me if I'm incorrect. Is it maybe because that one doesn't fit in the phone slot, so they don't list it as a phone accessory?

@Wangta
Totally agree with you. Now even if the accessory is not made by them, if they don't make it then they should point to an aftermarket one that does. (Ex: the one with the eraser)

@drex
As for the compare of the S-Pen kit vs the Bluetooth one, I believe there is a xda thread that does show comparisons, since a few have ordered them.

Okay, found something interesting, for those ATT members that wanted to get a head start in purhcasing accessories:

Housing Middle Frame Battery Cover for Samsung AT&T Galaxy Note II 2 i317 | eBay

I don't know if it's a real back cover or not, but wanted to post up in case someone would want a secondary back cover.

Samsung is not going to do that unless it's an authorized reseller.
Not every 3rd party seller is reputable.

Why do they show a picture of the Note 1? Weird. It's not like the Note 2 pictures aren't all over the place now.

If anybody was considering gaming on the Note 2, the gaming accessory that was featured while using the T-Mobile version is already up for pre-order at Best Buy:

Just had a thought and so far haven't been able to find an answer.
When you remove the S-Pen from the phone you get the pop up S-Pen apps.
How do you access those same apps if you're not removing the S-Pen from the phone but using the BT S-Pen instead? Is that what the Multi-function would be used for?

Anybody know how reliable these are?:

Also, I've heard good and reputable things about Hyperion, but it doesn't state the capacity on these. Has anybody that already owns the phone tried these?

Look what I found
New 3100mAh EB595675LU Battery Charger for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 GT N7100 | eBay

Granted, it's really a crap-shoot if this turns out to be an OEM battery, but I decided to give it a shot anyway. There are several different options.

I still intend on getting the Samsung charger w/ desk stand at some point, but this will serve its purpose in the meantime, while I'm waiting for that to be released.

I wouldn't touch that with a ten foot pole. I bought quite a few of those types of batteries (not that one in particular) and they do charge up but do not last as long.

I have bought their batteries in the past as well as their counterpart Anker and both last as long as the OEM and their universal charger is awesome. In fact the current Note 1 battery fits in the expandable charger that I bought for my Photon 4G batteries. But it won't fit the new one which is a bit larger.

The battery looks OEM, the charger I am not so sure.

These look very cool. Curious though, are these guaranteed to work with all games? Like the shooter games?

But after saying all that it does look nice

on the edges and back. Its a 5.5" screen! If you drop it I'd be amazed if it didnt break. You need to be realistic with these things. Although I dropped my note 1 with no case and amazingly it survived with little more than a ding.

I like that color. As for myself, I don't worry about dropping it since I'm going to glue the Note to the palm of my hand anyway.

Ohhh, I like! It gives the phone the same look as if there weren't a case, I think, and other colors are great. The red is nice! I want purple!!! :P Doesn't look like it adds too much bulk, either. Would like to see a review after someone has it in hand.

The one thing that worries me with any case is the S-pen placement. Doesn't seem to be any way to protect that corner and that's where most phones hit when they drop - the corner. I'm a phone dropper so a good case is a must for me.

Thanks for the heads up on that one!

I like it, but would prefer just a replacement battery cover. I'm not big on using cases. Tried a bunch with the evo and hated the extra bulk.

Does that replace the battery cover or go over it. If it replaces it then does it have the NFC chip?
