0. phoneArena 23 Nov 2012, 22:23 posted on

A video posted on YouTube shows the Samsung GALAXY Note II being used as a PC with a Samsung made adapter connecting the phablet to the display along with an HDMI cable; could this be a satisfying computer experience?...

Suggesting that all these comments are because I somehow hate Android or Samsung is so stupid and pretty much stepping into the territory of iOS vs Android.

And just read the comment you just wrote, lol. what a tool

There's a lot of Android haters from WP/Symbian/Nokia fan base. And there's a lot Samsung haters within the Android fan base as well. Calling people "simple-minded" for something they never did or said, makes you the simple-minded one, dude! Unless if you're an egocentric biased ifan, not everything in the tech world is related to apple.

And what's with my comment? Aren't you the jerk who called me a "simple-minded" creature for no apparent reason? Are even more butthurt now?Seriously, grow up dude..

regardless of which group you were referring to, its still really "simple-minded" to say that the comments are stemming from hate.

I pretty much consider laptops/desktops to be PC/Macs, but maybe I'm using the word incorrectly.

And I agree with the majority of what you're saying. The smartphone is great for mobility. But let's not pretend that it's going to out PC the PC anytime soon and that a smartphone is a good replacement to a PC for most users. That's just crazy

I think the video disproves what you just said.

My friend this sucks. My iphone 17 can do just that. For now, we've achieved adding one more row of icon to our phone. That's wat i called a revolutionary start :). Screw Samsung!

Same, I own an S3, but for my next upgrade I might go for the Note series! I can't believe that I could even somewhat replace my PC by just buying a monitor and connecting my phone with it! Super cool.

Pal, even the S3 will be like this after the next update.
And S4.. well let's just say you won't have to wait for the next Note :p

Welcome to 3 months ago. There have been videos like this on YouTube since a week after the phone was released as well as for the original note.

Totally respect for Android platform and tech giant Samsung once again.
And big thanks to "Coldfusion" for his great work for bringing all these great features front of users. Big fan man :)

I ordered my UNLOCKED Note 2 and can't wait to get it next week! No bloatware and no waiting for updates! I probably won't have LTE in my area for another 1-2 years anyway and AT&T's HSPA+ network does the job for me.
