AT&T's version of the Samsung GALAXY Note II to get Multi-Window update on Thursday
The Multi-Window feature is a lot different than the QSlide used on the LG Optimus G, although the goal for both is the same. With QSlide, two apps are on the full screen at the same time, and one becomes more translucent and the other becomes more solid looking by using a virtual slider. The advantage with QSlide is that you don't have to cut the screen in half to use two apps at once, which could make the screen feel cramped.
For AT&T customers with the Samsung GALAXY Note II, starting tomorrow you won't have to be jealous of those who bought the phablet from another carrier. There still could be some envy from those with the stateside version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, who are supposed to get the Multi-Window feature with the next update to Android 4.1.2 from the Android 4.1.1 OS build that is currently running the device for all four major U.S. carriers.

OMG, still don't have Multi Windows, that's just sad.

There will always someone to be first in getting something and last. Verizon was last to get the 4.1.1 update to Jellybean.

Duh, what are you talking about?
I've had 4.1.1 on my Galaxy Note II since day 1 (November 29th) and I've had Multi Windows, too!!

I bought mine from tmobile in California on October 24th. I just received the update on Christmas Day even though phoneareana announced it a month ago. I'm a heavy user in my business and don't see a big need for split screen yet. Are we supposed to get 4.1.2 pretty soon? My son's nexus has that......

That is why I like to buy an unlocked phones. It's been over 40 days since my unlocked note2 has Multi-Window.
People think unlocked phones cost too much but some don't realized that they resell out quickly like when I sold my used note 1 the buyer didn't think twice when he knew it is an unlocked phone.
