Samsung Galaxy Note 2, a phablet which continued the legacy of its predecessor, Galaxy Note 1, has several new features included in its functionality. One of them is the multi windows feature. Now, with Verizon finally selling its own Galaxy Not 2 models and new questions about the capabilities of the device are being asked.
One of the most hotly discussed topics is why Gmail and YouTube cannot be used in the multi window feature. The question initially raised by a Samsung fan through Twitter, made Samsung reply that they are working on having the capability soon.
It might be noted that right now there aren’t a lot of apps that can be used in the multi window feature of Galaxy Note 2. In fact, Samsung’s reply of adding these features poses a question – how would Samsung integrate the new apps? Would it be through some sort of intensive software upgrade or otherwise?
There are also some games in the Google Play Store, like Total Commander which supports the multi window feature. It is to be seen whether other aps too will feature multi windows support. Then, Gmail and You Tube can easily be used with the multi window feature. This hasn’t been confirmed by Samsung yet. If more apps do support the multi window feature, which seems likelier now after Samsung’s announcement, then Samsung is expected to use this feature in more of its models in the future.
If you are looking for a Verizon handset, Verizon is offering this Samsung handset at a price of $299.99 with a 2 year service contract. If you have an eye on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2’s unlocked version, then you can visit eBay or Amazon where it will be offered in the range of $600-$700.
