Sprint today began rolling out a software update for the Samsung Galaxy Note II that adds the ability for the phone to run two apps in different windows on the screen at the same time. In addition to the multi-window view feature, the maintenance update also gives corporate device administrators more control over the GPS settings; places emails in the outbox if sent when the device doesn't have network access; and adds a beeping alert when text messages are received during a voice call. The update is being rolled out in stages, but Sprint says all Note IIs should have it within five days. The update can be downloaded over the air and installed without desktop software.

Battery Life Slaughter

Running 2 applications at the same time, you will literally be able to see the battery icon slowly deplete. Apparently, from what i've heard, as soon as you launch the second application, the battery icon will decrease also at that time.
That is why it is optional. ;)

Is it necessary to use all the time? Of course not.

Very cool tho that it can do that reminds me of the other Tablet like phone they had that wasnt so successful made by Kyocera I forget the name xD.
Luckily Sprint customers don't have to worry about internet surfing sucking down any of that battery. That blazing fast .5 mbps will either make u throw your phone out a window or not even bother surfing the net at all....but hey, unlimited data!!!! L...
