This is a case catered to people who want that extra protection without adding too much additional bulk to the phone.

Eager to get your hands on Jelly Bean or CM10 for your Note? Check out the video and the links provided below for a preview build for the International version of the Samsung Galaxy Note. The build is mostly complete and can be used as a daily driver if you are adventurous. Remember: this is just a preview build and should be treated as such. There are a few things that don’t work with the ROM including a few sensor issues (rotation), full hardware acceleration, memory leak issues, among a few other things. That means that you won’t be able to see just what Project Butter has to offer the device just yet. The ROM is still plenty fast but you can see some of the visible lag when pulling down the notification bar or switching between the applications. Google now and the new voice search currently work so you can show off your device to friends and family. [Read more...]
If you own a Galaxy Note there’s a good chance that you’ve installed custom firmware to get more speed, or take full advantage of the high resolution screen through ROMs such as Paranoid Android. There’s no doubt that you’ve missed the one thing that Samsung has done right with their software: S-Memo. S-Memo is an awesome application that allows you to quickly and efficiently caption photos, or take notes for later while being optimized for the Note’s S-Pen. Thanks to developer Nathan Garside, you won’t have to miss it any longer.
