The listing comes courtesy of Best Buy, who have the LTE-equipped Chromebook available and priced at $379.
Of all the phone manufacturers out there, Samsung seems to have a particular talent for creating an anticlimax. Our first thought when holding the Galaxy S5 was that we'd been through all this before a year ago, with the equally underwhelming launch of theGS4.
Last week we mentioned that the long-awaited Android 4.3 update to last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note II has been spotted in Samsung service centers in India.

Proving that miracles still sometimes happen, the almost legendary Samsung Galaxy S II has just been added to CyanogenMod 11 's roster of nightly builds.
