No real reason to upgrade to the Note 2 now. I can buy a used Note for ATT for like $200 off contract.

I agree 100% with you @FranksGT... I'm sooooo happy that these special updates like Air View & Multi Window are coming to the Original Note... I was going to get the Note II but didn't because of the 16:9 ratio. I like the fat 16:10 ratio of the OG-Note, and hope that the Note III stays at 16:10... If the OG-Note doesn't receive any more update after this, I'm still happy and think my purchase was worth it... ;) Thanks Samsung.

Screw 16:9... seriously... it makes me want to kill a kitten! and I love cats...

I love everything about the Note II except for the 16:9 ratio. The OG Note deviated from the norm which is why everyone loved it.

Nice, just don't add the word official because this is a leak build

@ sorcio46 - Nice video mate, i watched all 8:31mins of it but was a little disappointed that you didn't mention/have the multi view. I even read all the comments, Okay the ones in spanish i didn't understand. But there is another video with jelly bean that does show a little more.

that UI is really smooth. UI really makes the lag in phones. Will love my Note even more.

So is this for the International Note n7000 or for US sghI717? Will we get things like smart stay? Why 4.1 why not 4.2? From what I have read this update won't come to carriers til the new year. If only I could buy a Nexus Note that would be updated right away and not have to wait 9 months for the OEMs and carriers to update.
