WOW really i am amazed but i am still waiting for the Sony Xperia Nexus! lol
Anonymous, 07 Oct 2012Meh..this can be easily done on iphone5's screen with just an app.Oh yes, one of you just had to defend your brand again. Of course you don't get what exactly Samsung has done here! It's not multi-tasking only, it does split-screen with those multi-tasking! Of course you can't imagine it, since your hardware upgrade is only to a 4" screen and cannot be directly connected to an HDMI screen (wirelessly), connect a Bluetooth mouse & keyboard to make your "phone" an almost PC function. NO, you can't with just an app. No, there's nothing like that with your store, and we won't expect your preferred brand to have a developer mess around with the OS in achieving a split-screen function on your puny 4"screen! It'll be another 2 years again when they would introduce something like that!
No matter what, Samsung is leading in innovations no matter what you say. Things gets better and better.
This is great and I'll be getting the Note 2.
This feature was done on the Prototype MeeGo devices 2 years ago. Good job somebody finally brought the mobile version to the consumer.
Anonymous, 06 Oct 2012Meh..this can be easily done on iphone5's screen with just an app.you are wrong. There is no split screen app for the iphone. (maybe if you are silly enough to jailbreak )
Ps if there was an app I assume it would come with free magnifying glasses given iphone small screen.....
it is getting better and better, nice samsung, i cant wait to get Note 2. Iphone is far far back, shame on apple.
My favourite brand is Nokia, never preferred Samsung, I'd only say that '' the cheap plastic junk'' seems to be miraculous in reality:)

A few examples with split screen.
1. Streaming a sports match and I want to write an email or message.
2. Paying a bill and I want an invoice open to copy amount details numbers etc
3. Filling in a finance app and need my bank account open.
4. Have GPS running and need to write a message.
5. having music open while I do something else so i can quickly select another song
6. Cruising the net or writing a message while am watching live share prices
7. Watching a video while on msn
To anyone who says a split screen is too small.... The area of the note 2 screen is double ther area of the iphone 5......
looks cool but doesn't seem useful to me since a person can only concentrate at one thing. I mean who does this on his pc? I always put every single program in full screen, all you need is a fast way to switch between apps
And the funny thing some people compare this beast with the brick "920".
Nokia if you have any shame go some where far away and die already!
another dagger to the heart?
lets hear some reactions from the fanboys :P
Android Fanboy 4.1.1, 06 Oct 2012Great.just like desktop OS.google should bring this feature in next OS update..it will be inte... moreThis is available in windows 8 and to a certain limited extent in win 7 as well infact i have two apps opened on my laptop right now. side by side split screen. not on top of one another.
Dunno about win phone but its definitely there, implemented better in Windows 8 Tablets check youtube videos and you will know.
Now thats true multitasking..well done samsung. Apple can only dream of such thing.
But I can not see any update notification on my note 2..the current version is N7100DDALI9.
PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO UPDATE.
Samsung is now way ahead of other manufacturers! This is simply awesome
