Just two weeks after it introduced the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 , Sprint has begun issuing a software update for the king-size smartphone. A posting on the carrier's forum indicates that the update features a number of minor changes affecting various aspects of the user experience.

Most notable among the changes is Multi Window View, a feature that lets the user run and view two applications at the same time. Considering how much real estate the Galaxy Note II provides, this will likely be an oft-used and welcome addition for many.

Other details found in the change log include GPS lock settings for administrators, an e-mail default for when in no coverage/Airplane mode, and an audible text notification while in calls.

The update, which begins today, should be wrapped in the next few days. If you're a Sprint subscriber with a brand-new Galaxy Note 2, you're advised to keep an eye on your notification bar over the coming week.
