AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note 2 receiving Multi-Window update starting tomorrow


Good news for those of you looking to do some serious multitasking on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for AT&T. After rolling out last week for T-Mobile, it looks like AT&T users can finally get in on the fun with the #2 largest wireless provider in the US announcing plans to begin rolling out the Multi-Window update to users starting tomorrow. AT&T’s official statement to Engadget reads:

AT&T plans to begin rolling out a software update for Samsung Galaxy Note II customers that includes the Multi-Window feature, which allows the user to divide the screen into two active “windows” creating a split screen that enables fluid multitasking between applications. The update will be available for download over the air beginning Dec. 27.

This is the same update the rest of the globe has been enjoying for a few weeks now and dramatically enhances the multitasking capabilities of the device. Now when can we expect the same for the Samsung Galaxy S3? (Bats eyelashes).
