Samsung has released a teaser video showing brief glimpses of its rumoured Galaxy Note 2 smartphone, ahead of a widely predicted launch on Wednesday 29 August.

Tagged with the quote "your magical moments will come alive on 29th August 2012" the teaser video doesn't reveal any specific details of the rumoured device, but shows multiple glimpses of what appears to be a stylus being removed. It also shows what looks like an S Pen drawing on a brightly coloured screen.

The teaser trailer features German film director, photographer, producer and author Wim Wenders and appears to be targeted at creative users.

The original Samsung Galaxy Note, only released in Australia back in March, is best described as either an extra large smartphone or a small tablet. It has a 5.3in screen and includes a stylus called the "S Pen" that allows users to take notes, draw onto the screen and annotate images and PDF files.

Despite initially expected to be a niche device, Samsung announced last week that it has sold 10 million units of the Galaxy Note worldwide. The milestone comes four months ahead of schedule, as the company initially forecasted it would sell 10 million units by the end of 2012.

Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 2 at the IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung) consumer electronics trade show in Berlin next week. The second generation Galaxy Note is widely rumoured to come with a slightly larger 5.5in display, up from 5.3in, as well as a faster quad-core processor.

The teaser trailer for the second generation Samsung Galaxy Note can be seen below:

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
